Best Communities Running Discourse

Hey!

Are you any of you members of other communities that use Discourse in an amazing way? I’ve been looking for some as a source of inspiration and I’ve come across SmartThings. What they’ve done is beautiful in terms of its interface and design. Take a look here.

So, any ideas? :slight_smile:

Did you see @Richard_Millington’s new communities tool that was launched today? :slight_smile:

Think that can show you quite a few good examples to start with.

Would be happy to hear any suggestions as well, but have you had a chance to look through this list already?

It’s not a perfect reponsive design. Close maybe but there are a few CSS bugs. And other more serious problems

As opposed to Discourse that has only 1 issue

IMHO you should not introduce validation errors into Discourse while attempting to get a “look”?

Anyway, what in particular about it do you think makes you find the interface and design “beautiful”?

For me, it’s more about design. The banner communicates clearly the purpose of the Forum and the user experience when browsing through the topics is clear and purposeful. I’m a neat freak when it comes to organization so yeah, that’s where I’m coming from. :slight_smile: Although, function in terms of bugs and other problems are a completely different story since these are just as important.
