    My first impression is that you guys have done a remarkable job at ensuring that there's very little friction for users to start with the new forum. However, take my opinion with a pinch of salt as I haven't been on much lately so it's quite likely that I might miss some features that more regular users might not...

    I'm curious whether you evaluated Discourse before deciding on XenForo?

    We looked at Discourse and I met with Jeff Atwood at another event around a year ago. Discourse wasn't released at the time and as he stated himself it just not ready for a forum like BHW. We have too many customizations and requirements. The platform of BHW is only the heart, we then put tonnes of functionality around it.

    If we were starting this journey now I'd definately look at Discourse.org again. But probably end up at XenForo

    I thought I am in Digital Point instead of BHW.
