Avoid Discourse.org's Forum-like product Discourse.

by Spokane 2600 Webmaster — last modified Dec 02, 2016 10:14 PM

After a week-long evaluation, it is strongly recommend to people considering using Discourse.org's product, to not consider using it in a production environment any time soon. Maybe in 3 to 5 years, if it continues, it can be re-eavaluated. Beware of the Discourse.org Discourse product. You have been warned. The product is far too fragile, and the community support is far below standards. UPDATE: I can now recommend people instead consider using NodeBB.
