I'm helping Lewis with this, and we had the idea that we would like to see Discord and NodeBB feel more seamless of an experience when it comes for our users (gamers).
We found that we have moved away from SMF forums as a community center and using Discord for almost every use case, however Discord lacks in the ability to easily find and organize information that you want to be persistent, and this is where forums like NodeBB excel. The idea is to bring Discord and our forum software closer together so that our community can have a healthy interplay between the two.
This may potentially go beyond just Discord and NodeBB interaction, but also being a central hub to allow other kinds of scripts to happen with other APIs that we want to communicate with both the forum software and Discord simultaneously. This obviously opens the door to all kinds of creative uses, and with Lewis' excellent work and attempts to open up plugins to play with other plugins, hopefully make it an easily extendable way for others to use the bot for their own needs.
I will be working on a Theme for our community site as well that caters to our sense of style and a skin or two to go with it. So, expect to see a little more from the two of us.
