I’m considering multiple open-source forum apps and Discourse is definitely the front-runner. Had some questions re: its ability to be enhanced.
I have 2 enhancements I’d like to see for my forum:
- Hide certain features behind a paywall (posting new topics, etc) using Bitcoin or some other crypto-currency for subscriptions.
- Assign users “credits” based on their activity. i guess this is similar to reputation points BUT those points would eventually be able to be used for different site activities.
