Introducing Discussion Hub!
Link:
https://discussionhub.io

Discussion Hub is a general discussion community aiming to help you get a little blast from the past. Cast your mind back to 2014. Life was simple. Forums were full of coloured usernames, special userbars and tight-knit communities. We want that back! So help us create it and let's have a great time.

We want Discussion Hub to be a relaxed and calm environment. And to ensure smooth sailing, we have tried to avoid creating a huge list of guidelines and rules. Simply come on over, chat freely and enjoy yourselves.

What do we have for you to enjoy?

Virtual Currency & Shop -
Would we really be a general discussion forum without a virtual currency? Hubux and Winbux are virtual currencies of Discussion Hub. Earn both by completing tasks and activities around the forum. Exchange these for items in the shop including coloured usernames, special badges, membership or even your very own custom group.

Membership Groups - Who doesn't love a special, unique, and glowing username? That's why we have many opportunities for our users to get exactly that with our upgraded memberships. Emerald and Diamond memberships are available to purchase with our virtual currency or by winning our Top Poster of the Month contest, whilst Sapphire is available for just $10 a year. These memberships will bring you a great range of benefits, with more to come very soon.

Spotify - We love music. And if you do too, share your music with the community. Our Spotify integration will allow you to show off what you are listening to on your posts and profile. And have a quick look at the sidebar because the top played songs right now will be showcased.

Custom Postbits & Animated Avatars - Who doesn't want to have an animated avatar? And if you want to take it up to the next level, upgrade your account to one of our three memberships and have the ability to add your own background to your postbit!

Top Posters of the Month - Take part in the monthly Top Posters of the Month contest to win some great prizes including Diamond membership, Hubux, Winbux, and even some sticker packs! The user with the most wins in the year receives an item/prize of their choice!

Personalised Profiles - Plain light or dark profiles are boring. Bring back the 2000s when forum profiles were colourful, full of animations, and bright colours that didn't look good! We want to give you control of your profile so spend your Hubux on making your profile page the way you want it to look.

Awards - Everyone loves a shiny award. Earn awards for posting, completing activities and even telling us about your holiday. Show off your awards on your posts and profiles for all to see.

Stickers - NFTs? Pfft, none of that over here at Discussion Hub. Stickers are brand new collectables that can be obtained by completing various activities around the Discussion Hub community or by purchasing special sticker packs.

Custom User Groups - Have a favourite hobby? Want to discuss your favourite TV show? Create a custom user group with your hard-earned Hubux (virtual currency) and have your own section on the forum to discuss anything and everything you want. Or join an existing group including one for Anime fans or users that want to go down memory lane!

Adult Café - We notice that a lot of "General Discussion" forums like to limit what you can talk about. No swearing, no porn and no adult discussions. That's why we have the Adult Café, dedicated to those adult discussions where you don't have to worry about what you're posting. (Access is limited to users that are 18+)

and much much more... - We are committed to bringing you more features and additions to ensure your time with us is great. Just a few of what we have planned include posting contests, free giveaways, and more!

We hope you join us at Discussion Hub and look forward to helping you with a little blast to the past.

Thank you very much @HotRodCarts :).

A small update for you guys. We passed 3000 posts a day or two ago and we're already on our way to hitting our next big milestone. We also recently surpassed 50 members which was nice. Feel free to come on over and check us out.

We are also hosting a special one-hour live chat with members of the community on the 19th of July at 8PM GMT. It will just be a general chat and everyone that comes along will get a special badge to show off on their profiles as well :) - https://discussionhub.io/threads/jo...-hub-live-meet-up-sunday-july-19-8pm-gmt.708/

Love this forum. I really like the idea of having multiple general categories. A lot of forums out there are so well defined in a particular niche that I can't join them as I have nothing to say. Perhaps I'll join yours. By the way, it looks great too!

Great ! The Xmas design is very cool.
Maybe the snowflakes could be less numerous and especially less fast
Thank you very much nicodak :). It's an addon so I will have a look a bit later to see what can be done about that. In the meantime, if anyone does find it extremely annoying, it can be disabled.

I finally figured out the way to change the speed and intensity of the snow so the next time we have it, it won't annoy you guys as much ;)

We're running our first proper event which is going to be an Among Us Night. There will be three different sessions tomorrow for members to join in. Would love some thoughts on how well it has been set up and how we can improve the running of game events (https://discussionhub.io/threads/among-us-night.1595)
Hello. You seem to have a great community. I really liked it. Great job.
Can you tell us what your development budget was and who made this forum for you?
I am planning to create my own forum. I would like to make it similar to yours, but in a different segment.
Thanks

Since our last update, we have had some big changes at Discussion Hub. Let's start with an important milestone - we hit 30,000 posts which I am quite proud of. A huge thanks to everyone that has helped contribute to that big milestone. We've had a huge revamp of our awards system including new icons and awards.

We have also revamped our membership upgrades, re-introducing the Sapphire group and offering some great benefits including custom username icons, custom postbit backgrounds, and more.

Our virtual currency shop is going through a bit of a revamp at the moment, with the introduction of some new items that will allow users to customise their profiles, usernames, and postbit.

We introduced Groups to the forum. Users are able to create their own group and have their own little section on the forum to discuss anything and everything they want to!

And finally, our Discussion Hub V1 Light Theme has finally had changes made to it to match the default dark version. I would love to hear some feedback on the new additions to the forum and our light theme :).
