Top 3 Ruby Forum Projects

  • Discourse

    A platform for community discussion. Free, open, simple.

    Project mention: The discord server is TERRIBLE for asking for help and it makes trying to look for answers to a problem incredibly frustrating | | 2023-03-22

    Depending on how much time and web space they have, Godot may want to implement Discourse as a subdomain of the Godot website?

  • Lobsters

    Computing-focused community centered around link aggregation and discussion

    Project mention: Scratch is the world’s largest coding community for children | | 2023-03-30 has an interesting mechanism to curb bots on the platform.

    To join to website, you have to get a referral from another current user. And this referral is public information. So if someone you referred starts acting like an ass, then you can expect some concern being directed your way. People are rightly a bit cautious with giving out referrals as a consequence.

    The topics on are more focused on programming and computers (stuff you'd likely also see on HN), and there's not really any political discussion. Traffic is light, expect maybe a dozen new links per day.

    This comment, by the way, does not constitute an invitation to ask me for a referral. I don't really know too well anyone on HN, other than the most famous users (none of who know who I am), so if you ask me for a referral, the answer is very likely "no".
