    @Panda It’s been raised multiple times, but only for the open source version, and not hosted.

    @Panda Just circling back here with something of an update (which I think you’ll like). I’ve completely restructured the ranking system. There are now less ranks, with a higher point threshold to reach them.

    More importantly, if you reload the site, you’ll notice that the ranks are now icons.

    I also removed the “Author” badge, and made this a single icon, which (to me) looks much better.

    @mventures the swatch feature you refer to isn’t a NodeBB plugin, but a utility that I wrote that handles this. It is available for v2 (as you can see here) but I’ve stopped developing and releasing the code because it has been entirely rewritten to work for v3.

    If you’d like the code, this is possible, but you’ll need to upgrade to v3 first.

    @Teemberland great spot ! You should create a PR for that so they can include it in the official repository.

    Just be aware that any subsequent releases will overwrite your fix without the PR.

    The real issue here is that most people consider forums to be “dead” in the sense that nobody uses them anymore, and social media groups have taken their place. Their once dominant stance in the 90’s and early 00’s will never be experienced again, but having said that, there are a number of forums that did in fact survive the social media onslaught, and still enjoy a large user base.

    Forums tend to be niche. One that immediately sticks out is Reddit - despite looking like it was designed in the 80s, it still has an enormous user base. Another is Stack Overflow, which needs no introduction. The key to any forum is the content it offers, and the more people whom contribute in terms of posting , the more popular and widely respected it becomes as a reliable source of information.

    Forums are still intensely popular with gamers, alongside those that offer tips on hacking etc.

    During the restore of a MongoDB based database, you may receive the error message

    E11000 duplicate key error collection

    This is because by default the mongorestore command does not drop existing collections before attempting to recover them, which results in the above error message as the collections already exist

    As an example, the command of

    sudo mongorestore -d sudonixdev /path/to/database/sudonix -u admin -p <password> --authenticationDatabase=admin

    Would need to become

    sudo mongorestore --drop -d sudonixdev /path/to/database/sudonix -u admin -p <password> --authenticationDatabase=admin

    The addition of --drop allows the collections to be overwritten by the restore.
