Community software

Hey @nick_lawson - out of curiosity, what tech are you using to run this community? The footer says “Powered by Eventbrite”, but I’ve never seen anything like this from EB before.

You folks branching out, or does the footer just mean that you’re the curators, and the tech stack is something different?

Hey Chris

Firstly hope you don’t mind but I moved your post to the site feedback category as I forgot to close off the How it Works post, and didn’t want it getting bumped up people’s feeds!

In answer to your question, it runs off discourse open source software (which i personally think is great). The footer merely means we’re hosting/maintaining it and so that we can be transparent about our involvement.

Thinking about it though, perhaps we might change the wording on the footer to avoid confusion.
