I took a look through Discourse over the past couple of months and found it just lacked something. Not sure what, but it did.

For my own purposes (note: I had no problem starting over myself), I went with XF2, and am just incredibly happy I did. It just feels incredibly well done.

I'm definitely happy to see progress on this being made, or at least talked about , and can't wait to see what Artashes brings in place!!!

BTW, if you still haven't tested XF2 out, do yourself a huge favor and do so. Yeah, the mods aren't there, or at least most of them aren't, from XF1, BUT from what I've seen, mostly not needed

Are you still planning on switching to XenForo? XF 2.1 is out now.

Yes, XenForo is still the plan. Time is the enemy, however.

I have quietly started the migration of HostingDiscussion to XenForo. While it is being put together, tested, modified and so on (the list is long), I wanted to get your thoughts on future appearance.

So it happens that I am actually a fan of the default XF look and initially I planned to run the site based off it, with some very cosmetic changes. However, I am having second thoughts, so I decided to ask for your preferences.

Do we run with a default skin or seek a custom one? My taste in look leans towards a very light, minimalist experience, so even if a custom look is a dominant crowd favourite, most big changes will likely be limited to header of the community.

I now leave the floor open to your opinions.

Well, it's not so quiet anymore. Congrats on the migration to Xenforo. It's been a long time coming, but I'm confident you'll love the end result. I always opt for custom designs, but a default skin would work. It's the members that make this forum special.

"Quietly" in the sense that I first talked about it in 2016 and seeing how it was still not done today, I wouldn't be surprised if most people thought the update effort was dead. I am just not going to make promises or talk about release dates.

Thank you for your opinion and your vote. It'll most likely first launch with the default skin, while we gather more feedback.

Is there any screenshot of the 2 skins ? The modified skin and the default skin?

This is what a default skin looks like:

Custom skin is still in development, but I am going for a light, minimalist, text-based look.

Yeah, I get that. I gave up release dates long ago. As a developer, it'll be ready , when it's ready

Good to see it's not dead though , glad to see the XF migration still in the works

If you like the default theme, you might take a look at UIX, or many of themehouse's other themes. They have a pretty decent 'light' selection there, and do keep up rather well. Just saying, less work is better, right?

Haha! That's the best kind of delivery date one can provide.

I've looked through a ton of themes, spoken to 3 custom design houses, eventually selecting one I thought had the potential to deliver an original concept. Frankly, I am not a big fan of generic themes. There is almost always something that I don't like about it. I'd rather spend the necessary amount, but have an unique custom look that works for my purpose.
