metanicis creating a modern, open-source bulletin board
We will give you the "Patron" role in our Discord server as a thank you for supporting us! It means so much!
We will include your name in a SUPPORTERS.md file in the source code of the project as a special thanks. If you don't want it there, let us know!
In this tier, you will b e added to the "Extended Supporter" role in our Discord, and your names will also be prioritized above forum supporters in the source code for Metanic.
We don't want to force anyone into anything, but we do recommend that people leave this on so that supports like you can. :)
You've probably used a bulletin board. Maybe you've even had the opportunity to try to build your own. Either way, you can probably tell about how well they've been able to keep up with modern technology trends, especially around keeping user information secure.
Online forums should be easy to set up, easy to configure, easy to maintain, and secure. Smarter systems can improve the user experience, by helping users find things that they're looking for, detecting potential duplicate posts, etc. These are basic things that all forums should have, but sadly most don't.
We can be better about this. With the number of communities being created with forum software, we need to be better about this.
We want to change these things with Metanic.
