BlenderArtists.org - An update!

Jason van Gumster

Friday 26 October Salon 30

The most popular user forum for Blender was migrated this year from its aging vBulletin backend to the more modern Discourse platform. This came after many years of waiting, a change of management, and a fantastically successful crowdfunding campaign. And since that move, the forum has seen a bunch of other exciting changes and updates.

This presentation goes over some of the motivations for the changes, a few of the cool new features that we get with the new forum software, some of the awesome things people are sharing on the forum, and perhaps a glimpse into where things may be headed in the future.
