If I were to run my own discourse instance I would want help on the back end. @BirdoBaggins @rgk would you help?

am not the best with backend, what do you have in mind?

@Adubs I ask that you evaluate your position on it. It sounds like a good idea but it’s a ton of work. Discourse is a bitch because vision ™ and Ruby on rails.

That said I’m down to see it. You should try and make it secure. No trackers no nothing… Everything hidden off the google

I could try to help.

Basically I’m probably good enough to get things going but if something breaks I dont know if I will be able to make any sense of it.

That brings up the question… do we even want discourse?

theres other shit out there like https://flarum.org/

discourse is shit and slow, but its the only devil I know for forum software. Never used PHPBB or anything else.
Which also raises the question, do we even want forum software.

thats why I suggested it, and it seems kinda similar layout.

PHP might be retarded, but it’s not Ruby

mastodon would be cool but I feel like that would be in addition to, not replacing what we have now.

I deleted my acc a year ago or so

I’d be VERY willing to try flarum

I am not as brave as you are…

Flarum is beta software . That means it still has some incomplete features and bugs :bug::beetle:, and at some point – sooner or later – it will probably break!
