      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

      Really? What about a reasonable printing function? A forum software where it is possible to delete an user account by themselves. Or one with less unexpected errors while submitting a post. For me the look and feel does not really matter, but some features are missing.

    • Personally, I hate discourse and switching to it would definitely limit my posting.

      Printing? Who does that? :)

      This is a very minor problem, don't you think?

      This isn't caused by the forum software really. This is the spam filter. I agree it does have a bad message but it isn't really an error. The post is either blocked for good reason or put into a moderation queue.

      I have tried many, many forum types and run my own board for 13 years. WBB is the best one I have used.

      Sometimes I prefer things which I can get in touch. Some important threads I print out, in order to create a pdf-file. Sometimes I make a print out. Therefore I am missing a feature which I know from other boards: "printable version or "printable view".

      But I do not expect that something will change.

      I was just being funny :) I had a good idea of what type of things people would "print". I save things to PDF myself but usually not from the OMV forum.

      IMO the current forum software Burning Board screams legacy in every way. Why not switch to something more modern like Discourse?

      forum.syncthing.net

      help.nextcloud.com

      community.letsencrypt.org

      forums.docker.com

      etc.

      Or am I the only one thinking this...?
      Because discourse is a mess of endless message feed without any logical structure.
      The nextcloud community run under discourse and it is almost impossible to dig informations and clues.
      For exemple, the new messages are not even in first position in the normal feed, they are in the feed, somewhere ...
      Another exemple: you ask a question, the answer solved your problem. Just a tiny green quote in your original message display it is solve. But this is INSIDE the message, not in the title (no tag or whatsoever). So, when you search by tiltle, you have no clue when you found a message title about his status. ( ongoing, closed, solved ... ). You need to open it. When there is 2 or three messages, that's fine, but when there is hundred, you simply waste your time.

      The old rules is good:
      - MAKE IT SIMPLE
      - MAKE IT STRUCTURAL
      - IF IT'S AIN BROKEN, DONT UPGRADE IT
