Forum directory and installation

I note that the root directory for the XF forum install is \community so I wondered whether this was just something you had done for this particular forum or if it's something you're going to encourage?

Most forums usually have a \forum, \forums, \index directory or similar so is this another way of showing that XF is more a social platform than just forum software?

I presume of course the site owner will be able to install the software into any directory they wish?

I doubt it's going to be required. I generally enjoy putting my forums on a sub-domain and would still like to do so!

I assume it's just community because the title states XenForo Community.
