I'd support migrating to Discourse, which seems to be what all the cool kids use these days.

It's an important question to consider; the forum is the most important resource and consensus-building tool the stakeholders have right now.

Qora already put blogs on a blockchain, so let's put the forum on the blockchain!  :P

we're working with CIYAM on a decentralized forum application ;)

I knew it was too cool to be my idea.

why not work with qora to get a full featured solution? DNS/WEB/Blog/Forum
Qora only can host a simple html page.. There is no ddns built in.. For that it's more complicated and qora is really simple solution

I would support migrating the forum to hosted Discourse https://payments.discourse.org/buy/ controlled be a few trusted community leaders and funded by a paid delegate position, and maybe moving the url to be forum.bitshares.org.

Are there better forum templates available on GitHub?

even with  a forum tech migration, it'd be great if all history of this forum, incl. user profiles and posts, migrated into the new one.

Yes I would think this should be a prerequisite for any upgrade that might happen.

The only reason we haven't switched to Discourse is because there are no good mobile clients for it. About half of the bitsharestalk traffic is mobile (especially China).

Its easy to be abke to put any amount of data in the blockchain infact I was thinking about putting popcorntime on a chain and create a custom browser to be able to browse a decentral website analogous to any other site.. howver the better way is to do ddns which really isnt out there unless u wanna run a custom dns resolver on ur system. So i dont think any of the hard problems are being solved by qora unless im mistaken? A whitepaper would help.

I dont see how the forum can be decentral unless u put the sql db stuff in our blockchain bloating it with a forum which wouldnt provide much financial incentive to host it and if u charge per post noone will post.

Discourse looks better and easier to use in my mobile browser than this forum.

I'm not supporting migration to Discourse (or to other forum engine). Forum for us it's a working tool, why we need to change something that works good/great?

Try to read this forum for 5 minutes, then back to our forum and you will understand the difference:

you want innovate with bitshares 2.0 and then send people to this forum? it's like showing them our current client.

also, no problem with neucoin forum, it's just a matter of adaption

Don't see connection with innovate bitshares 2.0 and our current client. I give NeuCoin forum as example of Discourse.

Everything is matter of adaptation, but why we should change something which works good for us, only because we want users think what we do great things like changing forum engine?
