    A VPS with an SSD definitely helps things... it becomes very clear how much slower a hard disk is when things need to scale!

    An SSD still doesn't hold a candle to RAM yet... but I await the day it rivals it.

    @julian We are still not capping out our memory but we are keeping a close eye on it. We are trying to keep things as fast as possible.

    We are at 8,400 posts now. Last night we pulled ahead of the NodeBB forums in volume 🙂

    Hate to bust your bubble, but I don't place too much stock on the number or volume of posts. On a forum where there's a lot or one-liner posts, it's very easy to push the post count way high. That said, I think it shows that there's a lot of chatter on your forum, so more grease to your elbow.

    True, but as a technical community, the posts have a tendency towards having some meat to them.

  • @itsCrafted Looks great, if you need any assistance with the twitter module, just ask in a chat window, I set mine up yesterday. If you're getting an error when you click twitter, restart your server/nodebb manually, it helped me.

    I'm still in the experimenting phase. I'm trying to sell NodeBB to my members (very small around 30 members with maybe 12 active, its a very small private community) but haven't been able to get NodeBB running properly on my actual server. I've been running it locally on my machine playing with it and love it!

    One thing NodeBB seems to lack for private communities is some sort of "Admin Activation" or even better yet a way to make the site invite only (this latter option might be best as a plugin).

    This weekend I am installing Ubuntu over CentOS and removing directadmin which made my life really difficult in finding the default location of server settings files. Once I complete that I will set it up at a test site for my members to go play with. Once I set that up it should be pretty simple to convert them. Who doesn't like a modern forum?

    Currently I have my domains dns on my server, but it sounds like I can have godaddy manage them properly and just change an A name record on them so I can use them to easily host the dns of my domains. That is the biggest reason why I wanted some sort of control panel like direct admin was so that after I changed my domains nameservers I could still easily control them. That will help me out a lot. Especially since my server use to go out often from DDOS attacks on directadmin (I've since secured it better), and godaddy won't have that problem. I should always have access to my email from google apps.

    Soooo hopefully in the next month I will have switched my forum over.

  • We've launched an online education platform which crowdsources interactive explanations of high school math/science topics. We're hoping that it will fill a gap which currently exists, using the Internet to coordinate a large group effort to build the world's most extensive interactive math/science learning resource.

    (feel free to message me for a referral code if interested)

    The main idea was to break up subjects into tiny morsels, each of which could be easily crowdsourced by enthusiastic students, who would also learn the material better by attempting to write. At the same time, we structured it in a way to make contributions very easy, so that one didn't need to know how to program in order to author dynamic content. We also structured it as a game - a math contest of sorts, in which points are awarded each time another student views and likes an author's explanation. 🙂

    Since our mission is education, it's particularly important for the experience to be engaging (somehow we need to make learning as much fun as looking at pictures of kittens on the Internet, which is pretty hard...) NodeBB is the sole forum product out there which matches our philosophy. The forum section of our site is at http://concourse.expii.com (also a word play on Discourse).

    It's very inspiring that a tiny but extraordinary team like yours could turn the world of forum software upside down, and I think you will soon win major recognition. Please keep up the good work. We're rooting for you!
