Hello,

I find this forum endlessly fascinating and useful. Thanks for all the work.

Wouldn't it be great to a (re-)build a public internet forum with advanced functionality? Some part of the forum are much more than a message board and it would be really cool to facilitate that kind of activity (taking ideas from newer message boards, Stackexchange, Github, etc.).

Somebody requested an API a few days ago and I think that is a great idea. Why not go all the way and (re-) build something from scratch? Two quick examples: a) I would like to be able to have a feed to a user's posts (realtime, feed). b) if somebody chooses to be public that should be indicated. Basically the idea would be to opensource the forum software and have the community working on that, too, building on top of other projects.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

IMO this should be an opensource project. I have evaluted some Rails projects. https://github.com/radar/forem looks alright for a start. If anyone wants to work co-jointly on this please let me know.

Perhaps there is value in a layered forum with different access levels. At least that is one possibility of a trust-mechanism which I have seen been used before for partly sensitive information.

Come on, give it "two more weeks".  Grin

Anyone wants to work on this?

I might be doing something, because there is nothing happening. I believe this is pretty important.

Thinking about some rather trivially forum features I'm missing, such as staring a thread and a smoother notification topic, etc.

Any nice forums which are opensource?

https://moot.it/ has a lot of realtime stuff and is overvall very modern.

I have a team of *insert number* skilled developers who know *insert list of coding languages*
We will start working on the new forum software immediately and finish in *insert amount of time*

That's what the whole thread for new software looks like :-)

It seems has to take the lead and then people might contribute bits and pieces. I don't know the bitcoin community well, so I don't know. Posts of botcointalk are of a very wide range of quality.

Usually these modernizing projects begin with enthustiasm but end up miserably because everyone has ideas and no-one actually makes anything Smiley We built up a decent load balanced Discourse installation and will do our best to help build it a better home for Bitcoin related talk.

If Discourse is not familiar (it is pretty new), some of its key points:
1) Users gain trust by using the forum and behaving - helps in administration
2) One-page infinite scrolling
3) Quick and efficient
4) Modern, very much a work in progress (see http://github.com/discourse/discourse)
5) Safe and secure (see http://github.com/discourse/discourse)
6) Great UX, simple UI

See our FAQ at http://dbtng.com/faq

All development help is highly appreciated. Make yourself heard in General category. Welcome!
