Make better decisions

We show a warning when users disagree about something — so that you can think twice, before making a decision.

Navigate large discussions

Navigate easily between replies and comments. If you don’t have much time, you can get quick overviews of long discussions.

Stay up-to-date

Recent comments are shown in a sidebar, so you’ll always be up-to-date. When someone mentions your @username you'll be notified.

Easy to find your forum

People will relatively easily find your forum when they search the Internet, because we show good comments first — and search engines like that.

Quick and simple login

Login with Google, Facebook and others. Or with username and password. You can also enable anonymous guest login.

Shape your Community

Via Like and Unwantes votes, your staff and core members can shape the nature and contents of the forum. Prevent it from going off-topic and being taken over by cute kittens. Work in progress.

Free and Open Source

If you understand Linux and Docker well, you can install E.D. on your own server. One installation can host many forums. Automatic software updates. Work in progress.

No need to split your community across Chat, Forum, Wiki.
