Official Hackaday forums

Yes, finally, we have a forum. We get regular requests, both in the comments and in our email for a hackaday forum.  We put it in operation a few days ago and started letting people trickle in and it hasn’t completely blown up in our faces. Please join us there and help build our community. Also, notice there is a button for it over on the right column now.

Some items of interest or common answers to common questions:

  • No illegal activities allowed. Yes, we have the word “hack” in our name. That does not mean that we will hack a website for you. (we get that request weekly).
  • Keep it moderately clean. Sure you can cuss, this isn’t a kids site, but no pronography/gore please.
  • No personal threats.
  • There will be google ads. We are trying really hard to balance the business with the fun, so bear with us. So far, they aren’t in the way. We have no plans on going overboard.
  • This will be readable without a login. You must register to post.
  • We’re working out the kinks. Please report any problems to caleb@

That’s it, enjoy and be civil.

  1. eww MyBB, ok I am not the biggest fan of phpBB but myBB? really? its written by a 12 year old, has bad support, squat themes or extensions, incompatible with anything else, and the last forum I had the pleasure dealing with it would corrupt its own database twice a month like clockwork

  2. Not “A” hack -(potentially) tons of them!

    Not the first time I said thank you for making the forums, and probably not the last.

    AWESOME

  3. I was thinking more along the lines of slashdong content…. teledildonics. Bluetooth or arduino powered “toys”. Nothing explicit and still quite interesting but still probably fairly prefaced with a NSFW tag just to give people a heads up.

  4. I have no idea what 75% of the post are on about… as an enthuiastic and ambitious dilettante this is hog heaven.
    Life is about to get waaaay more interesting – hello steep learning curve…
