Is this the best forum software?
I've decided to be more active here, and I am having a hell of a time finding a list of recent posts, knowing if I have viewed threads previously, and so on. I have to wonder if using SMF is not a better option? I've managed on since 2008, and it is also the same that bitcointalk uses. It is also largely used by clandestine chemistry forums; so, it probably aligns with what we'd want it seems far more robust.
It might not look as good, or have the same theme as the rest of this site, but honestly, who cares? I'd rather have a more active forum which may only come about from a more robust forum software.
Just a thought anyway, my vote is that we switch to Simple Machines Forum or that someone presents an argument that convinces me otherwise.
