It's highly unlikely this will even be finished before the supposed shutdown happens. It's better to use existing software that has a proven track record, even it it's commercial.
Hosting a forum even of this scale shouldn't cost much as it's mostly just text, assuming you don't enable things like file/image uploading. Even attack protection is easy to get these days. I assume the most expensive part would be guaranteed uptime/data integrity, although a daily backup should just be fine to be honest and then you can get a normal dedicated server to run the whole thing.
Not that I'd trust a random person or closed source NodeJS project with this kind of thing though.
Also damn @foszor, I haven't seen you for a long time. This situation really brings some old legends out of the woodwork.
I was hiding in the previous implementation of the developers forum ¬_¬
make it nearly plaintext html like this:
Can't bitch about design when there is none. Also, I just grabbed this off the net so idk what its about.
sharp corners are en vogue
Isn't not punch is technically a slap?

I'm also kinda bored. Let's give this a shot
Exactly. I've been using xenforo for years now and it's wonderful. I even got a theme that looks just like FP in the works out of boredom.
Agreed on the software.
Disagree on the hosting cost, depending on how much "shouldn't cost much" means to you.

self driving cars and parkouring robots stand aside, this is this century's biggest breakthrough
Now including outdated memes
benbb and ignacio should work together and make the best Notpunch we've never seen.
I'm loving the aesthetic of benbb's iteration, and am rather impressed with how much functionality he got done already. At the same time, I'd love to see ignacio's efforts be put to work, too.
I feel like having you two work together would be a better solution for everyone.
I think this whole thing is really cool actually. Neat to watch it take shape.
Is this a race now?
thanks! i'm trying not to work too much on it, actually, because the last thing i should do on vacation is do the same thing i do every day, but i'm having a ton of fun working on it, especially because i'm mostly a front-end guy!
Please lord let the font be good for blokes who don't use cleartype.
OpenSans it is then.
oh my god if you left in a mode that i could browse the notpunch forums in Web 1.0 style, i would ship massive containers full of cash to your front door because that looks baller as fuck
