You could use one to promote the forum, but I wouldn't use it as a replacement.Yes, I've been "advised" useless things like setting up a Facebook page, or Reddit thread by people who just don't get it.
YeeshIf you're buying it new, it costs something like $850 for all modules. Admittedly, it's got a wider scope than XF, but damn you need deep pockets for it.
It's too bad that social media and chatting apps such as Discord are killing forums off. I've always liked the sense of community that you get with a forum, which can't be replicated.
And yours truly is subscribed to every. Single. Thread. All 571 of them and counting.Notifications are so helpful to me through email, which is how I know when someone has replied to a thread I'm subscribed too. Also like subscribing to threads. For NZ, I do rely on this method a lot so I can pop back in for a reply.
I don’t subscribe to threads, the email traffic wouldn't be good, it would put me off because replying generates replies.
Also I’m personally not a fan of the “dopamine cycle” and FOMO - I come when I have the time, energy and will to properly engage rather than because an email tells me to, as for me this is a much more positive cycle of engagement
I created an account years ago purely for following and have only made a handful of comments. I don't think it's following anything at the moment.I'm still on the fence about Twitter.
I don't think Trump has any shame. The DWAC merge with TMTG (Truth Social) may be delayed with all of this new drama going on with Trump. I won't shed a tear. Truth Social is a website built on the basis of anger. I try to run away from all of the negative input and the websites that bring it, as there is just an overload of bad news like never before in my lifetime. Truth Social is his mental house so he can live rent free in everyone's head while he name drops all of his issues.I created an account years ago purely for following and have only made a handful of comments.

The last thing I followed was Trump's account when he was still spouting off on there. His unhinged rants made for great entertainment and I could see that he was heading for a ban which made it all the sweeter and more hilarious when it finally happened. Just how humiliating is it for a sitting president to be banned from Twitter?! No wonder he went mental over it.
