Recommend an ASP-based Full Featured Forum?

P: n/a
I'm looking for an ASP-based forum for a community of professionals. I like
YABB:
http://www.yabbforum.com/community/

It's pretty full featured. I like the built-in instant messaging, calendar,
and support for plug-ins. However, it's Perl & I'd much rather have an
ASP-based board that I can work with.

I'd also like if each user could have an address book (or list of friends)

Can anyone recommend a good, powerful, and reliable ASP-based forum?

Thanks!

http://www.experts-exchange.com/ has a section under "Web Dev -> Web Development -> Web Languages -> ASP "

-rwg
This is what I think, not necessarily what is accurate!

Snitz forum is pretty good feature-wise, but personnally I don't think it's
build to allow easy changes.
With each module you want to add extra you need to do quite some changes, so
if possible I'd be sure to take a look at the sourcecode of any ASP based
forum you come accross and see if it looks easy enough to adjust for your
needs.
Try sourceforge.net, there are a number of open source ASP based forums
registered there.

Snitz is likely the most popular. DotNetNuke if you're into the .NET
world. And YABB works fine on IIS with ActiveState's PERL, as does
PHPNuke, using PHP.

FTI, I found this one over the weekend, & it looks to be the most
fully-featured ASP forum I can find so far:

<http://www.webwizguide.info/web_wiz_forums/forum_features.asp>

Snitz forums looks like I need to include add-ins to make it as fully
featured as WebWiz.
