What you say there I cannot argue with. Yea looks abit dead. so to speak. which is a shame.
I'm about to start jumping through all the flarum hoops to install that. as it looks fresh, clean, and tidy. Not content with that, but its in its 7th beta stage and so it looks very promising. So I'm taking a gamble but it looks worth it. Ill use bbpress as a possible backup. Maybe even copying some the topics over onto another database for the event ''when'' flarum breaks on the beta. ill do this daily so that my users will have something to work with when it finally does happen. Nice of the host company to allow me the database to do this mind.
so yea. i look forward to the future with flarum.
