A user asked why our club was not using a cloud forum, so I went and had a quick look at them. Website Toolbox / Plush forums / Ninja Post / Vanilla Forums / Active Board are the ones he suggested. His thought was that a cloud based forum would be better due to reduced admin work. I guess he thought I might get hit by a bus. The idea of "always current" software seems to be the benefit of cloud based operation. It does look to be aimed heavily at mobile users. The downside I see is that it will cost more to operate due to the monthly "management fee". I suspect many users here on the XF forum would not go this way. It would mean giving up a fair bit of control. What are your thoughts on this?
