    Forums are dead

    Reaching people through email is really valuable for a business, people come back often if you send them a nice newsletter with updates and they remember the old forum and how much you changed and they become active again for a while.

    Discord does forums

    I opted for "community" because people often think them almost as a large group with many interests and areas below them.

    Forums are dead

    What? Why should you do that? You have valuable informations like emails for example. And is a best practice that an account is forever if i don't choose deliberately to delete it. In our forum active since 2007 people value their account a lot. You receive points only because you registered...

    Forums are dead

    Quality over quantity should basically be the main objective of a forum admin, a high quality thread can rank on Google and do well on social networks and you can re-use it over and over. Reddit with his huge userbase can have quality posts but they often get lost because mods can't keep them...

    Discord does forums

    Discord is working on a new feature as they wrote on their blog: https://discord.com/blog/a-note-on-upcoming-community-experiments And apparently a "news feed" type of channel: What do you think? I'm really fascinated how Discord is trying to be an all rounded solution for web...

    Disreputable service providers

    A fact is a fact. A stolen code can be proved as such. A contract not respected by one of the two individuals involved can be proven as such. I will pay you 1 dollar for X, Y, Z I receive X, Y but not Z. If you can prove it then the other individual need to prove his innocence. That's it.

    Disreputable service providers

    The obligation comes when this forum let people advertise services, and the people who advertise here become known to scam people. This is the official Xenforo forum, and to be honest even in an "unofficial one" people who commit fraud are banned period. I'm still waiting some kind of measure...

    NFT Avatars!

    Xenforo will never build such a niche function inside their core. Try to reach a developer if they are interested to develop a Metamask bridge + Open Sea bridge + Avatar System alà Twitter or soon Instagram. For now even the Twitter system is unfinished, everyone can mint an NFT and use it in...

    Looking for feedback: A new look at forum user experience

    This hurts again because we should have one, or at least a Trello with planned features without a specific timeline, running a forum is becoming complex and this platform (that i personally like) still let me and my fellow admins in the dark. We are trying to spend our time developing things...

    Looking for feedback: A new look at forum user experience

    This it's not ideal from a business perspective, i work for reduce uncertainty not for making things more complicated to manage. AC.UI + Feeds is an approach i personally id like to implement in our site (Xenforo still doens't have a proper "Newsfeed") but id like to have a clear statement about...
