Discourse? What the hell is this?

Discourse is a new forum application, still very much in beta. It’s written in Ruby, unlike Vanilla and phpBB, and it’s a ground-up take on how discussion forums should work.

I’ve set up this small test forum so I can get some exposure to how Discourse operates with a small amount of user-generated content in it, and also to test the production readiness of my setup.

To discuss Discourse, check out the meta category.

I’ve got a topic already started, which should show up as a link to the side of this message. Cool!
