There may be a winding road ahead, but it just got a little shorter with a significant addition of another planned feature – forums.
The forums, which can be found here currently consist of General Chat only. As topic groups suggest themselves we can add more boards as needed. Also, because I am cool and amazing (and the feature came with the software) groups can now have their own forum too. So far we have only used that for the help and support group.
For those that are geeky, we went with BBPress for the forums because, well, it works with everything else we are using and has active development, is well tested and has a wide user base already.
Now what we need are a bunch of brave testers to jump in there and try things out.
