Looking for comments on the Discourse.org framework. It's potentially a direction we could move the forums from SSC in. Not articles, scripts, QoTD, stairways, etc., just the forum discussions.

I like the UI of Discourse, it's certainly more updated than the 90's forum look most forum sites have.
It looks like it has a lot of potential, but it certainly is a great shift away from what we have here.
I hope people are not too frightened when they have to "learn" a whole new UI.

The one thing I'm immediatelly missing at Discourse (or I'm just too stupid to notice) is some sort of bread crumbs to go back to the categories.
You can only click on Discourse at the top, which brings me to the main page in the popular section, which just shows everything.

I think they've moved to tags instead of categories, which I like. That's one thing I'd liket o have here.

I really like the UI! I had never seen it before, thanks for sharing.
That said, the forum sw here needs some improvements and probably it's more convenient adopting a ready-mad piece of sw rather than updating the existing one.

Discourse apparently does not like me. I can't seem to get it loaded.

I'll try again later.

We are looking at replacing our current Telligent installation with either a custom built, or another 3rd party forum group community system. So thanks for this, will be one to add to the pile to investigate.

They reimage the system regularly, and I've had some flakiness. My guess is Chrome will work best as a browser.

Personally, I use the "Recent Posts-->Posts since my last visit" and"Recent Posts - Posts from last week" a lot. With that and maybe having the "Categories" shown on all pages, I would be pretty happy.

I just ran across this post, as I've been looking to consolidate where I interact with sql discussions. Lots of different places, but this site seems to house some of the best material and responders.

I actually just joined sqlteams site because I wanted to find one that used the discourse framework. I know it has some quirks, but I'll throw out there that I like the move to the more modern discussion platform. I'd love to see that integrated here.
