I am an email and IRC recidivist. I have to admit that ever
since I joined the Plone community forum which uses Discourse, I
have been more engaged with that community than I would have
otherwise. I can choose which topics interest me, forget the
rest, and explore things that might interest me at some point in
the future. It also has a wealth of information easily
searchable and accessible.
I noticed that my wireless carrier uses Discourse as well, and
I've found it exceptionally helpful to solve my phone problems
quickly, compared to the phone manufacturer's craptastic help experience.
I haven't tried Zulip yet, but I just signed up to compare it to Discourse.
I don't know what challenges might be for self-hosting. Perhaps
those who have experience with self-hosting either Discourse or
Zulip could share?
