Interserver provides

shared, vps and dedicated hosting powered by AEF

AEF stands for Advanced Electron Forum and is a fairly simple, yet effective, forums platform. The system was designed by two people who got their start learning how to hack major forums software. From there, they decided to create their own forums that would give them added experience and something more legitimate to do. After working on it for a little over a year, they launched AEF on May 5 th of 2007. Since then they have released a number of updates and improvements, though there hasn’t been anything in the last few years.

The platform is still available for download and use, but they don’t seem to be actively providing updates any longer (they have not officially said this). There is some talk on their own forums about having other developers take this system over, but it is not yet known if that will happen. In its current state, AEF is functional but out of date. It is a good system for people who just want something very simple that they can play around with, but if you’re looking to start serious forums, you’ll want to find something else.

Final Thoughts

AEF is a nice little forum option that will allow you to create a simple set of forums to create a community. Sadly, there haven’t been any updates to this system in quite some time and it is unlikely that there will be in the future. With this in mind, it doesn’t make sense to start a new site using this platform. If you just want something very simple to facilitate online conversation, it could work but there are better options available.
