Not entirely sure if I'm going to keep this around; I'd like your thoughts.

Yay!

I'm very happy that you are building Financier and that you created a forum!

Great to have this up and running. Is the intention to bring everyone here from reddit and slack rather than maintaining multiple communities?

That's why I suggested a forum. This dinosaur just can't get used to Reddit! ;D

My intention was for it all to coexist :)

Love the software and am optimistic for its future. The forum is a great idea. Keep up the good work. There are a lot of us here pulling for you.

It's nice to see a forum and be able to discuss with people that maintain similar interests. Feels more like a community already!
Keep up the good work!

Alright, I'll keep the forums around. Seems very nice to use!

I've added a couple enhancements like Gravatar avatar by default, relative post time (1 hour ago, etc), and SSL. LMK if anyone else wants anything else.

Cheers


EDIT also the reason I chose SMF over Vanilla and other requested options is the look and feel. SMF is just easier for me to read and comprehend. Vanilla's thread management and whatnot seems messy, too much whitespace, and hard to follow to me. Maybe I'm just an old stickler when it comes to forums. :)

Same here. I like the SMF forums. It would be nice to have some more emoticans, but that's not a huge deal.
