Does anyone actually use forums? Would you build your community on a forum based platform like Circle or Discourse? I've been noticing more and more people are choosing to run their community on Discord or Slack.
I understand why people choose Discord or Slack. It's free, most of their community is already within that platform, which means higher engagement.
The reason I'm asking is I'm building Playgroup a forum based community platform. I'm have huge problems getting anyone to actually use it. Most simply don't care enough to build their community on a forum. Most would rather spin up a Discord or Slack server.
I'm curious on if and why you'd use a forum to build your community? After a full year of running Playgroup I still can't onboard a single user. I'd love any feedback!
