You could make a custom icon just by making a new class in the css file something like
background-position: center center;
width: whatever maybe 16px or 32px
height: same as what you put above
Or you could make a custom font file
Not really sure what all the hype about mongodb/redis lately is, if you can use well tested sql databases.
MongoDB is well tested too. But beyond being super stable, it is screaming fast - far faster than any relational database, it has amazing sharding properties, it speaks native JSON, it is getting a massive amount of active development, it is considered the native database for Node.js on which NodeBB is built and it scales like crazy.
Now the big one.... when using Node... those "well tested sql databases" are not well tested. MongoDB is far more stable and tested than any of them and, in fact, lack of highly reliable drivers is a major issue for relational (what you call SQL) databases.
So there are very, very good reasons to use NoSQL, especially MongoDB specifically. Speed, stability, battle tested, native, etc. I'm not actually clear on any upside to using a relational database here. Relationships are nice, but would they add any value at all in an online community infrastructure?
Also, I should note, some online communities that we have dealt with have scaling issues specifically because they eschewed this advice and went with those "well tested" relational databases. Once they grew and got busy they were unable to keep pace and they bogged down and had to throw crazy amounts of money at keeping respectable performance when MongoDB or other similar datastore could have been faster for cheaper.
Great to see third party cloud hosts taking up NodeBB such as yours.
I've merged documentation for this: https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-english/pull/107
I'm planning some revamps on our commercial site (nodebb.org) and that may include a page linking third parties to host.
Give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org, there are some opportunities that we can talk about. Thanks!
