Will there be a new forum for Ardor? Or will this forum / site be it?

There will be a new forum very soon.

Good news is we'll be using a parallel forum for Ardor, that will share the database with NxtForum, so everyone who has an account here will get an ArdorForum account, and gets to use both while keeping personal history.

The snapshot philosphy applied to the forum, if you want :)

I estimate the move will take place in a couple weeks from now.

Yeah!  And it won't be anything like Slack, right?

Slack is slack, and it's good at what it is. Forums may have lost a big share of activity with the arrival of slack, but they're still good for some things, like organization and persistence. For as long as a forum is useful, there will be one.

would it be better to just use bitcointalk forum as there are more people there already vs trying to build up the community from scratch again. im thinking in the lines of hopping onto an existing forum with a community there already and build from there.

Repeating what I wrote in my first reply, the Ardor forum will inherit all the Nxtforum users, so there's no building up the community from scratch again.

currently community conversations are split all over the place. it would be ideal if there was an all in one system or just one place. forum / chatroom that is SEO friendly. there is a loss valuable chats that would do well for seo purposes.

Slack and similar environments are not good for SEO, but they are convenient and that's what lots of people use for quick discussion. They will keep being used, and they are used in every community. All communities have a forum (at least) and one chat server (at least). I think trying to fit all of the pros and cons in one single system is not realistic, and that minimum fragmentation is inevitable. Actually the Nxt and Ardor community looks quite tidy if you have one chat and one forum.

There's tools you could add to the Ardor forum to bring some of the convenience of slack (for example, a shoutbox on top) but people would still keep using slack. The real question that has been posed several times is if a forum is needed, and every time this discussion has been suggested within people working in community and management, the answer has been yes.

we should figure out how to archive slack chats or some other chat platform on the forum for seo purposes.

I find nothing convenient about Slack.  What good is having real time conversation if you're forced to listen to 3 other conversations at the same time?  It's like 20 people all talking at the same time.    It is also nearly impossible to go back and get to the start of the conversation and see what was said.  This forum is way better in all respects.  I tried to use Slack for awhile but now I just never go there.  Totally useless.  I wonder how many people are NOT part of the conversation just because of those limitations??

I have tried to play with thewiring.com and nxtfolks.com which are based on Buddypress and allow users to have a forum and an activity page, it's more like a social media platform having also a full forum.
But people don't seem to like that as there is zero activity. I gave up, but I still believe that it's a great compromise.
My conclusion is that as long as there is not an app for mobile, there will be little audience.
Any kind of forum, I agree, needs to be there because of the structure and because history is not deleted after some time.... Which I find terrible in slack.
