With such a strong software support through Discourse, low deployment cost, let us hear out opinions and views on what “ELSE” is required to make a good self sustained forum.
- Great Hobby (Can become a full time Job)…(Software is not the only Hobby )
- Circle of close friends. (Forums are for discussion, individual are just a part of puzzle)
- Existing Forum.
- Ample free time and bunch of registered domains. ( All knowledge and lot of related junk is a already out on the net, just need to re-order it, clean it, rephrase it)
- Other options / suggestions?
Too many blogs are out there and very few I would say have dedicated user base. Many sites are nothing but just a bunch of few pages and no content. & many me too news aggregating sites for nothing.
So who should attempt setting up forums and expect to make a sustainable difference ?
