Discourse looks amazing. Wow! A big change from my old days using phpbb.
In the past, admittedly a long time ago now, I’ve had greater success starting new forums by initially seeding some content. A little social proof does wonders for engagement levels!
Would love to know whether it is possible to seed a new discourse forum. What I’d like to do is to create say 200 user accounts and roughly 1000 topics and replies before launching.
Is it possible to do this without having either 200 email addresses or 200 social accounts?
I’d like to add these users from the admin panel and log in to them occasionally to respond to new users.
