    It's not a ban on downloading, but on uploading.

    That's correct, a category === forum in NodeBB. If you exclude History Channel, posts from that category(forum) won't show up in search results.

    The lazy loading never really worked all that well, and was originally added because we wanted to stop issues with the browser viewport shuffling back and forth if images were being loaded.

    Browsers are taking steps to address that now, and so that's why we're stepping out of their way 🙂

    @Joykiller Not sure if you're around anymore but I thought I'd respond anyway.

    The problem with maintaining a plugin and theme directory is the maintenance aspect. We simply don't have the time to make sure everything is compatible, especially since every plugin created is a community contribution.

    So we automate. We rely on plugin developers to report plugin compatibility, and serve only those plugins that are marked compatible. There is one downside, however, and that is plugins will quickly disappear in successive revisions of NodeBB unless the authors keep them up to date.

    So there's definitely space for crowdsourcing as well. If a plugin is not marked compatible by the developer directly, multiple reports of compatibility by the plugin users should also count, and if enough votes come in, then the plugin should automatically be reintroduced.

    ☝ that part isn't in yet, but it's on the wish list.

    @kevin - No problemo. Hopefully we'll see you back at NodeBB sometime in the future 🙂
