• I noticed right away that your community was not yet using Discussions, our Forum feature replacement we developed for our communities last year. We no longer support Special:Forums and will be sun-setting that feature later in the year. In the meantime, we have switched all new communities to Discussions and are manually enabling it on already established communities who are willing to make the change now.

    Discussions is a feature that users can use to post questions, thoughts, images, links and even videos. They can upvote posts and even share them on social media. Users can edit their posts for the first 24 hours, but Admins and Moderators can edit posts anytime. Users can report posts they feel do not comply with our guidelines, or that of the community. Admins and Moderators can remove them. We give you the tools you need. Since the introduction of Discussions, we have seen a pretty big increase in community interaction. You can find more information on Discussions here.

    As part of the process, we can import your current Forums into Discussions. Your current Forum can co-exist with Discussions temporarily if necessary but we would prefer to just import them into Discussions when we enable it. The current forum topic would be imported as categories, so everything stays in order. You can learn more about migration here

    Let me know if your community would like to have Discussions enabled and your forums imported. I would be happy to take care of it for you. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

    Thanks so much!
