Reddit like categories? (General)

Hi Auge,

You still supporting this software yes? :)

Yes, we do.

I will now speaking for myself. The following is not the opinion of the team, it's only my opinion.

Would it be a complicated code to make MLF able to allow its users to create categories, like in Reddit? (e.g. mylittleforum.net/c/'category_name'/)

Yes it would be complicated in the meaning of coding and of the general change in functionality that this would require.

Why should one be able to create own categories beside the categories that was defined by the operator of a forum? And what influence on what should such a category have? Should different users see different threads or different order of the same threads independent from the actually order functions (last thread vs. last answer) and independent from the general settings from the operator?

Reddit and a thread based forum works in completely different ways. So I don't see a usecase in the context of a forum software like MLF.

What might be considerable instead is to open the tagging function to the users (maybe only to registered users, but that's another discussion). But that would only be relevant for the search function but not for the sorting of threads.

Tschö, Auge
