Introducing Discussion Hub!




Link: https://discussionhub.io

We are a general discussion community aiming to help you get a little blast from the past. Cast your mind back to 2014. Life was simple. Forums were full of coloured usernames, special userbars and tight-knit communities. We want that back! So help us create it and let's have a great time.

We want Discussion Hub to be a relaxed and calm environment. And to ensure smooth sailing, we have tried to avoid creating a huge list of guidelines and rules. Simply come on over, chat freely and enjoy yourselves.

What do we have for you to enjoy?
  • Upgraded Groups - Who doesn't love a special, unique and glowing username? That's why we have many opportunities for our users to get exactly that with our upgraded memberships. Emerald and Sapphire memberships are available to purchase with our virtual currency whilst Diamond is available for $. These memberships will bring you a great range of benefits, with more to come very soon.
  • Spotify - We love music. And if you do too, share your music with the community. Our Spotify integration will allow you to show off what you are listening to on your posts and profile. And have a quick look at the sidebar because the top played songs right now will be showcased.

  • Virtual Currency & Shop - Hubux is the virtual currency of Discussion Hub. Earn this by posting around the forum and completing little tasks. Exchange these for items in the shop including coloured usernames, special badges, membership or even your very own custom forum.

  • Adult Café - We notice that a lot of "General Discussion" forums like to limit what you can talk about. No swearing, no porn and no adult discussions. That's why we have the Adult Café, dedicated to those adult discussions where you don't have to worry about what you're posting. (Access is limited to users that are 18+)
  • Profile Cover Photos - We wanted to give our members the ability to spruce up their profile pages and give a little bit of retro social media *cough* MySpace *cough*. Unfortunately embedding background music to profiles didn't work out, so cover photos is a great back-up plan in our opinion! Plus, the spotify plugin is pretty darn cool :love:.
  • Badges - Everyone loves a shiny badge. Earn badges for posting, completing activities and even telling us about your holiday. Show off your badges on your posts and profiles for all to see.

  • and much much more... - We are committed to bringing you more features and additions to ensure your time with us is great. Just a few of what we have planned include posting contests, free giveaways, profile covers, and hosting for Hubux.
We hope you join us at Discussion Hub and look forward to helping you with a little blast to the past! We are also consistently adding new features to and "upgrades" to our community shop!

Pros: Looks really good
Cons: Seem to kinda make the rules up as they go.
I’ve giving the forum this rating because it looks nice and seems to have a nice amount of content, however they aren’t very clear on the rules. I posted a gaming video in the gaming section that was suppose to belong in the promotion sections, the thread was removed instead of moved and was told I need to post more (even though I’ve been logging in and reading threads multiple times a day) If I want to post promotional videos out side the promotion section, which is confusing and contradicts the reason for removing my thread in the first place. Other then that the forum looks great
