Thoughts?

I feel like the traditional idea of forums have died. It just can't do what we want it to do (likes, various things like that). This new free forum software has caught my eye and I wonder what everyone else has to say about it? Instead of switching to something like vBulletin.

I kinda like it. Looks modern and up to date. How hard would it be to implement?

I need to do a little more research to make sure we can convert over this wonderfully loaded database we've created. I'll keep you guys posted.

Thanks!

Anyone want to help out with implementation of this? Not quite sure if I can handle this task right now.

We need a coder who can get it installed on the server and maintain it. it has become clear I need to step down from my role as administrator as I don't have the time to do it anymore.

We also need someone to get ahold of Jeff and pitch it to him.

FOREWARNING. We will lose all the post currently on here. At this time it can't be carried over. But maybe we can setup on a test environment so we can play with it and see if it's worth convert over for reals.

It has some nice features. Realtime loading so no "pages" to go through in a thread. and real time updates so you don't have to refresh.
Anyway let me know.

My phone isn't ringing? :P

If I wasn't fighting with Flexera's AppPortal at work, I'd be all for this. But for now, 1 shitty web app is enough to deal with, don't feel like dealing with another after-work. Maybe in a month or so.
