Effective discussions. Create a discussion forum where good solutions and ideas rise to the top, not lost in noise. Includes chat and blog comments features. — Brings together the best from Slack, Discourse, StackOverflow, Reddit, Disqus.
EffectiveDiscussions is good for:
Your non-profit. Talk with those you help, and your volunteers.
Your company. Help your customers. Team chat internally.
Your hobby, e.g. an open source project.
Your school or class. Let your students help each other.
Anything. A forum about relationships / games / politics ...
Help your users
See their questions and problems, sorted by importance.
See ideas people have, sorted by popularity.
Make better decisions
Best comments shown first — you'll find them and can make better decisions.
You'll see if others disagree with a suggestion / comment — then, read the replies, to find out what the problem is.
Gather everyone at one place
Don't split your community across Forum, Q&A, Chat, and blog comments. — This forum software already has such features, in one single place.
If you've been away for a while: (e.g. vacation)
- Use the recent top topics view, to see what's happened recently.
- In individual discussion topics, you'll find newly added comments, via the sidebar (see video).
Build knowledge, together
Collaboratively edit wikis, upvote good answers and good ideas — and find what you need later, by searching.
