RE: [newtech-1] Message Board/Forum Software for a website

Uhm Ian, ….discourse isn’t even available…… Basically its still in Sandbox “testing mode only for their site”.


The other issue is they don’t seem to want you to run it on your own servers but instead pay a $19.99 - $29.99 fee per month…..seems very contrary to the whole idea of open source but hey sure…whatever.


Lastly…..Discource reminds me a lot of the Hot Potato model (though with tumbler look and feel).
