I see Discourse as an octopus!
They “squeeze through tight places” and “are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates”! [Quotes from Octopus - Wikipedia]
Discourse’s “Octopus” arms not even started to grow… but when they did, they will embrace the whole web!
At the moment, I am strictly focused on translating to Brazilian Portuguese, but meanwhile I wonder about the possibilities, and imagine possible uses… I feel the software has so much potential… it is the missing tool to make the “quantum leap” over what we currently know as “mailing lists” and “forums” and bring effective new-reality-construction based on the forthcoming “civilized discussions” it will empower!
I plan to use it a lot, making it the base for everything else at several domains. I foresee plugins, add-ons, extensions to make every imaginable and unimaginable use case possible…
So, @tothetick, you are not crazy! Or both of us are! In the future, a single “Discourse” login will be the option of choice to login at every DC site around the world!
