Open-source and open communities for the win.

Discourse is customisable and decentralised. You can make it look your own. You have unique accounts for each instance, no centralisation.


We use, and we’re not alone, Discourse hosted by https://discourse.org. It works quite well and with managed hosting I don’t have to worry about anything but the content.

The @Discourse app for iOS/iPadOS (the iPad app also runs on macOS) is awesome — now I have (almost) all the support sites I frequent in one, logged-in place. cc @codinghorror (Those of you still using Discord: take heed! 😜)

I wanted to thank the discourse team for creating such an amazing product. I just updated two instances of the forum without a hitch. In fact, I’ve been using the software for years. And I’ve never had a failed upgrade. And when I need help the team is always available. So hats off to you guys!!!

@SergioRocks We ditched slack for @discourse in our remote async team. Haven’t looked back and the team loves it.

Discourse is fabulous. My company has used it for a customer forum for 7 years so I’m using it a couple of hours a day. Super happy with it. Though I would like to be able to mark a post as unread. 🙏🏼

We’ve moved our community back to a forum (gasp), powered by @discourse - on https://forum.ghost.org

Main motivations:

  • Open source, so we own it (we’re kinda big on this?)
  • Format is better suited to large community who have a lot of questions

Discourse is the go-to. Outperforms most other core forum platforms.

The best implementation of threaded communication I’ve seen so far is the one of @discourse. Check it out!


Discourse is my favorite forum software 🔥

(And it feels unfair to call it “forum software,” as that sells it short and lumps it into a class it has long since transcended.)


I need to give a huge, heartfelt, deeply grateful shoutout to everyone who contributes to @Discourse.

I have never seen software do such magic before. I had a dream, I fully realized it with a self-hosted Discourse instance, I invited my friends to come populate it, I created a story of why this should exist, and I put it out into the world, and… people came. A lot of them. And they’re staying and contributing. The place is alive. It’s for us. It’s ours. And it’s all thanks to @Discourse.


I love to use @discourse and co-ceo @ILOVETHEHAWK’s talk at #runningremote showed it’s a real idea lab platform.

I love that we have a Discourse forum for @hanami! It’s just an utterly delightful spot for considered dialog.

Look at this helpful answer I got to share just now! discourse.hanamirb.org/t/progr…

And this subtle bug we got to root out and fix over the course of a couple of weeks: https://discourse.hanamirb.org/t/incor…

And this information will live forever in easily findable form. I love contributing to our forum!

Happy to announce we’ve moved our forums over to @discourse, the same software that the Roblox Developer Forums use! The team will be up tonight responding to your posts.


I understand some folks do discord but man … I’m sure happy that some places have a @discourse forum instead.

I’ve participated in a variety of different communities across several different platforms, but none have quite compared to my experience with discourse - which has offered the best online collaborative environment I’ve experienced to date. So this is a bit of a thank you for building a truly amazing forum service that’s allowed me to connect with amazing people in my community, and expand my skills at the same time. (Plus, smooth support for discourse on both desktop systems and mobile devices, which is appreciated so much!) 😄✨
