This forum is something I wanted to set up as a general place not tied to any company for Makers to hangout and get help. This is a personal project of mine and I love forums. Their ability to easily index and find information makes them functionally better than solutions like Facebook Groups and Discord.
If you have suggestions on making this a better place to get help and meet other makers post below!
No emails used to sign up will be used for anything other than your MakerForum.Tech account. This is not a site for sales crap. This is a MakerForum. We'll never sell your data, period. I am tired of companies selling data, I do not do that with my own company nor will I with this forum.
All the data on here (database and files) are currently on a VPS that's backed up to my local server daily. If the forum needs more storage I may move it to a dedicated box or a larger VPS.
What does it run on?
This forum runs on open source software called Flarum.
Who pays for it?
I do. I am not taking donations or anything. Any Amazon links posted will be affiliate links to help support the server costs. Just people using the forum is all that I want from this. I really cannot overstate how much I hate that Facebook groups have killed forums even though you can't find anything in them…
