forum.qiime2.org software

Just curious: what software was used to create https://forum.qiime2.org/? I don't see anything about that on the "About" page (e.g., a link to the GitHub code). I also can't find anything relevant at https://github.com/qiime2.

It's a forum built with Discourse.

Yep, thanks @crusher083!

@nick-youngblut - it is a self-hosted instance of Discourse, with a few plugins installed. I'm a little surprised that there isn't a link or reference to it in a more obvious place - maybe they don't want to be "in your face" with their self-promotion?

We launched this instance back in October 2016 and it has been a joy to administer, super easy to use and configure, from an admin perspective. The moderator tools are also pretty darn convenient.
