dotnetburner.com was a community site much like http://dotnetshoutout.com or http://dotnetkicks.com, but it did not work for some reasons (my lack of time and “marketing” skills for example) so i closed it.
But since it has a nice code base based on asp.net mvc i decided to release the source (was originally coded for mvc 1 but i ported it to mvc 2 with just a few changes). It serves as example, but can also be used to run a community site (as long as you respect the license provided with the source).
Screenshot of the site running on localhost.
It was designed to be fast and use as much less resources as possible, so it can be run on a shared web hosting with reasonable speed. Since it was designed to be fast, some code could have been simplier or i could have used some “bleeding edge” technology, but i did not (except for asp.net mvc). So, keep in mind that some code does not look as good as it can be, but it is surely fast.
DotNetBurner is compatible with IE6, IE7, IE8, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
Go grab the source at CodePlex. The installation instructions are provided with the source (check the INSTALL.docx file). If you did not read the installation file, the admin password is “admin123”.
If you want to use it to run a site, please, let me know.
