A Forum

For Discourse, if you will...

After much hard work, that basically consisted of me annoying darix as often as possible, I am glad to say that we finally have a Discourse instance set up! Super Big thank you to darix for all the help!

So What?

What does this mean? For starters, we now have a forum/community in place that we can start building around photography and free software.

A neat side-effect of this forum is that we now also have a way to embed forum threads as comments on posts (only blogposts at the moment - I’ll add them to articles shortly).

At the bottom of any blog post you should now either see a series of conversations happening with a Continue Discussion or a link to Start Discussion. Either of those buttons will take you to the actual forum to continue the conversation. Replies to topics that are tied to posts will show up as a conversation at the bottom of the post (check the bottom of this post).

The site is open and live at the moment (if a bit bare-bones). Feel free to drop by and create an account, comment on things, start new topics, etc. I’m testing things out at the moment to see if I need to possibly bump the server specs in order to handle the loads (most likely). (In the course of writing this, I went ahead and bumped the server RAM to 2GB - so it should run smoothly).

I write tutorials too.
