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...)
Hello there @jeff! We do support a migration plugin from Discourse to NodeBB. The friendly™ folks at TDWTF have migrated successfully, and they were instrumental in getting the migration plugin completed.
