We’re currently running Discourse forum software. It has its pros and cons. We’re never going to make everyone happy, but I do want everyone to know that I see the feedback and am thinking about all of these issues (even if I don’t respond right away).
If we do switch, one option would be phpBB. It’s a much simpler interface, more like FlyerTalk or FWF. It doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of Discourse, but we might not need all of the bells and whistles.
I’m open to discussing the best software for us and look forward to discussing with all of you.
