What software is used for this forum?

I’m interested in creating an EV community since my G+ community is shutting down.

We use Discourse, which is free and open source software. You can set up Discourse yourself fairly quickly and easily, with little to no technical know-how. The instructions are very thorough.

The only cost is then your Digital Ocean hosting bill and your website domain name. Hosting for Gradient Descent costs $5/month. If you have a much bigger community with a lot of users active simultaneously, you might want to go for a $10/month plan with twice the RAM.

You can also pay $100-$300 to get someone to set up Discourse for you. I would only recommend this if you have money to burn and really can’t be bothered.
