Ah, I’d almost forgotten what they looked like.
Perhaps, but that’s what we effectively migrated away from when we switched from the mailing lists to Discourse. Hierarchical (via the web interface) and threaded.
I doubt any of us will have a chance.
That said, I had a very brief look at that NewVote thing and … ah, no. The project is less than six months old, built primarily with NodeJS and the total number of people working on is numbered in single digits.
So basically we’d have to build the whole damn thing ourselves as well aslive with whatever the original project creators decided was a good idea. If we’re going down that road, we’ve got our own projects on the back burner which could be rekindled along with certain other things other pirates around the world have been delving into for several years.
And, no, I don’t have the time to delve into those either. My dev work with a certain other project looks like it’ll be picking up again soon. That’ll keep me busy in a big way for a while.
