First I’d like to say that I’m a huge fan and “soon” supporter for discourse. I really like the community around it, and planning to use it as a platform for my next community.
I’ve a question though and this is quite essential for us, we’re planning to run an international community, some users can speak English and others cannot. I’ve learnt that there a great plugin for Discourse that could help for translations. But since these people want to participate as well, i think it’d better to have one data base for accounts and users can login in all our communities.
We managed to do this with Discuz before, not sure about Discourse. Btw, I’m not a developer.
