Why isn't Discourse more frequently recommended as a "community platform"?

What do you mean? Discourse is conversation! :wink:

Jokes aside, this is a very thought-provoking topic. Thank you for publishing it!

Social media can garner a specific community. For example, Discord is mostly used by gamers, Flickr is mostly used by photographers, and Pinterest is mostly used by artists. I could go on if I wanted to, but I think you get the bigger picture.

This topic will make for a great addition to my collection… :grin:
