I sure hope Jeff or other technical representative of Discouse shows up at this year’s ForumCon! Seems like there is another new kid on the forum block: Moot! I sure would love to have a session where the new technologies are compared and contrasted!
Moot looks pretty slick. I’d love to see a compare/contrast, too.
Couple main differences off the top of my head
Not open source
Allows full embedding, like Disqus (and unlike Discourse)
Does not allow self hosting
Thanks Jeff. I’m not seeing anything about an emailable digest in Moot. This is a key requirement for me. Disqus doesn’t support that either (nor access to posted content altogether as far as I can tell). So Discourse still looks like the leading candidate for me
I trust you guys are taking a close look at Moot and stealing all that you can use
I like Moot but I think it is a bit too much like Google Wave in approach, e.g. too radically different and thus hard to understand.
I struggle to read a long Moot topic, I can’t tell what is happening when I click those big numbers with the arrows on the top and bottom.
