here is an interesting video on building an online community.

I love how the video creator mentioned that message forums are the best online community platforms.
Yeah I agree.

I like that they chose a forum over social media, too.

In the end, social can give you more of a following very quickly but it's rented space and you can lose it in a heartbeat and not be able to do anything about it.

Forums - you typically own the database. Now can you access the database with your solutions?
