Pinned topics/posts are useful to help new users and we use them in all the categories. Some users end up directly in "unread" or "recent" and it would be helpful if we could pin topics to those as well.
Yes I'm referring to the Dockerfile. I'm no expert with Docker either, but I must admit that it's extremely handy for creating forums on the fly with different versions at the same time, and saves a lot of time.
If you're not focused on this tool I completely understand and appreciate you already providing up-to-date docker images, so I'll try to see what I can do myself and share it if it works well. This is possible by manually modifying the dockerfile but I think it's also possible in a more elegant way and easy to use, with env variables
Thank you for the idea of SEO.
a. I agree with @julian there are philosophical disagreement
b. agree, adding Google schema support could be built-in like we have seen FB open graph is built-in
c. not a forum, try other software
d. would be helpful, could be done by a plugin. Argueable could be built-in too, IMHO
e. I have nothing against but I think it would be a large project because I could picture some addition live ML and log mining needs to be developed for this to be generalized, and could complicate the core NodeBB a lot.
f. not a forum, sounds to me a social network
g. has been done by plugin and you could pretty much develop it yourself.
h. not thing against it, I think it currently works.
i. it's more of a site operating and community engagement strategy
j. not a forum
k. Good idea, could be done by plugin
l. This is already in place, right
m. good idea. I don't see why not but I assume it already works
n. same as k
@johnsonjohnson said in Which is better NodeBB or Discourse?:
@gotwf's claim that Ruby on Rails is somehow history is absolute nonsense. So is the claim that it's somehow hard to customize and scale.
Most people who make such claims have no idea what Rails actually is. They've never used it, or at least never developed anything substantial with it. In addition they've often spent most of their lives learning something else and is therefore reluctant to vouch for anything new regardless of what it is.

.... bunches o' snippage....
Rails vs. NodeJS: Are you kidding? Was an early adopter of Rails back, circa 2003/4 or so? It rocked at that time as an alternative to then php stuff sporting the serious security hole of the day/week. Or so it seemed - php was pretty sketchy for a while there. Fast forward a decade and a half and it's freakin' no contest! Rails is all but history/legacy, at least in my mind.
Pretty sure I was using RAILS before most people hereabouts. Used to own the first edition of "the pick axe book" before some asshat "borrowed" it from my cube and never returned. That was copyrighted 2004 and I'd been using ROR for at least several months prior. It was a dandy alternative to the php security hole of the week. Fast forward to more modern times and I'd prefer to use else. But then I have also not used ROR in a decade so.... my impression may well be outdated.
But whatever. The above was an opinion. Your mileage may vary.
But it is cool that you feel passionate enough about ROR to create an account to post a rebuttal to something I posted nearly a year prior. So, @johnsonjohnson, welcome to NodeBB. You've tried the rest and found the best (TM)
P.S.; Even recounting that history has me pissed off again because they also stole my first edition copy of "The Pragmatic Programmer". Never replaced either. Fsck'ing hate thieves.
