We are living in the electronic data times when people generate more content that any time before. Internet users are eager to share their knowledge in the internet as well as seek the information in the internet. The Safe Boards aim to provide users with the platform, where users can discuss, share or ask questions on any topic, with minimum intervention from the administrators. Safe Boards is going to base the quality of the published posts and responses on the wisdom of crowd, by applying a voting system for both posts and replays. This way a content with poor quality can be hidden from users. The second most important point of the project is to secure user’s privacy and anonymity. Whenever users decide that it is necessary, they should be able to secure their topics in the way that only users authorised by them can read their posts. An additional security can be applied by adding the encryption to the post. This will require users to distribute a secret key among themselves, but it will protect the post from being read by system administrator or even authorities. This way Safe Boards will be the boards to exchange the information but in the way that users can control their security and visibility of their posts.
