Upgrade snarescience to phpbb 3.1 or move to discourse?

Posted: Mon Mar 14, 2016 4:18 pm



I know this is not a democratic process or anything and ryan can do what he wants, but if he has time available I think it would be really nice to upgrade the forum to the newest phpbb or move to a more modern forum software.

Phpbb 3.1 has a responsive layout that is so much nicer to use on mobile phones, which is probably what most of the traffic here is from. The traffic from mobile devices is so much more than it ever has been before. I think this is a key reason why there is more discussion and posting on other places such as reddit/facebook groups such as the ******* one.

Or, discourse is also a good open source option. It is incredible to use on a mobile device, many forums I know have switched over to it. It has many cool features that you may have never thought you'd need before.

What's everyone's thoughts?

I emailed Ryan and he said he has some changes coming soon. Hopefully he has some time to work on the upgrade but I understand it could take a lot of time.
