I saw a post about a minecraft community looking to migrate from a non open source forum software and decided to paste some of the details here.
Maybe @psychobunny@julian can communicate with the site owner (via twitter or website?) and discuss if nodebb can be a better choice?
Note: I removed the forum software name since I don't know what the policy is towards that.
Below is part of the message that was posted.
to [ ]?
Custom pages: It's important for non-coder like me to create and edit custom pages. For [ ], I have to hand code the home page via my limited knowledge of HTML/CSS. I don't mind doing HTML, as long that the UI is good enough so I don't have to mess around with CSS.
developers will raise money, spending on testing/servers/etc.. so you guys can keep doing what you are doing and grow the community. This is important because a software can be there for the long term if it has strong financials. It's good for me to feel that [ ] will be there for a very long time, and you guys are not afraid to ask for financial help in the community.
Compatibility with CloudFlare (especially with their Rocket Loader bug). I know this is CloudFlare's fault, but somehow Rocket Load helps load site very fast. And I like it fast.
Simple text editor: I recently learned Markdown language so I can somehow write it normally. But newbies wouldn't be able to.
Working with external storage (AWS S3, Google Cloud Storage, etc...)
But if that's the case, why are we asked during installation whether a port should be used for the connection or not. And if the answer is n, that answer is reflected in config.json, but the port is still used anyway.
