PLink Nachrichtenbrett or simply PLink BBS
Explanation:
A nice one, this...
I know this one from my own experience as a "PeopleLink Board" or "PLink Board". It is a bulletin board system (BBS) that people can post messages to.
Normally, one would actually use the term "Brett" or "Board" in slangy conversations even in german.
You could also translate "plink board" as "PeopleLink BBS" to make things digestible for Germans...
Cheers,
Ingmar
