Should we make this forum a bit more modern? (aka social)

Generally I like this FluxBB forum, it's as stripped down as can be, which I think is a good thing. But then again, it might be worth considering some more modern stuff in the line of stackoverflow. I do not think that the stackoverflow approach is the answer to everything. For stuff like coding it makes a lot of sense, where this traditional forum style makes more sense also just for general discussion, and this rewarding system can quickly become annoying and even counterproductive.

or:

Well, both of them have a point. And this is about samplers, which is very emotional in 2014, and the usage of these very nice machines is not comparable to coding. I was just having a look at http://forum.osxlatitude.com/ and they seem to use a wordpress forum plugin. This would be possible as well.

Well, after some thought, the OSX latitude forum is not much different from FluxBB.

Re: Should we make this forum a bit more modern? (aka social)

I don't contribute very much but am happy with the current format. It's clean & simple and works for both chat & problem/solutions via the search options. Similar forums include Korg, muffwiggler and the old emusonacid. Scoring & reputations etc. seem unnecessary as I'd still read a post regardless of its score and make up my own mind as to which was the best answer; sometimes it's not black & white anyway.

I like the format too, not personally a fan of the point type system...
