Hey everyone. As I begin the early stages of building the new server (the new hardware is up and running, just setting things up) one of the things that I've been struggling with is to determine the best type of forums platform to use.
Things aren't the same as they were in 2010 or even 2015 and there have been a lot of shifts in how modern forums software works.
I'm looking for feedback and/or suggestions on what you guys would be interested in for the new forums. This isn't about specific features or anything like that, but rather the actual software for the site itself.
It's okay if you don't know any by name - but if you use forums from another service that isn't a Transformers site and isn't reddit what do you use? Are you a member of a game company forums or some other site?
What types of forums do you hate and what do you love?
I'm mostly just looking for some preliminary feedback because I have a feeling when we do upgrade we're likely to go through a "This isn't what I'm used to!!" phase here because things are likely to be different than what we have now.
