Discourse is my all top favorite forum, why because of the discourse team, without all their contributions and dedication to expanding the forum, I would of never gotten this far without them, I started off new and unfamiliar with the software, now I’m slowly learning on how to create one on my own in a local environment, I would like to thank everyone on the discourse team for getting me to where I am now. By looking up basic topics on how to change settings, wiki, etc, to more difficult like email, installing discourse, etc. again thanks. if any co-founder would take a second of their time to answer a few questions, (optional) it would be greatly appreciated
What made you want to create a open source platform like discourse?
Did you think creating a open source community would benefit you to expand and make lots of money, because maintaining a large forum, writing code, etc is alot of work
Do you feel proud in creating a large expanding community of large users and helping them out?
What type of equipment did you first use to write the code? Who wrote the first code?
How many users (customers) have you gained from the year 2015 to now! Did that help you gain interest in developing more in your product.
I noticed @codinghorror used to previously maintain stack overflow, what made you want to move over to discourse more? Did that benefit you?
Thank you for your cooperation
