Just playing around with buddypress... :)

http://nxt.thewiring.com/

No SSL installed.

Neat!   is there a possible way that you could automatically transfer all the accounts and posts from this forum to that one?

It should be possible: https://www.cms2cms.com/blog/smf-vs-bbpress-choose-migrate-infographic/

The only thing that I'm not convinced about is that also buddypress groups can be created with forums within, but that's not a full forum solution like bbpress or SMF. That makes me wonder what should be the scope of the site and anyway not sure if anyone does like it.
Probably it would be a solution to keep the forum still on the current platform (SMF), and we play a bit with buddypress on the site I did.
If there is enough people then I would definitely buy a domain, a ssl certificate and then performance is the other question. At the moment it's hosted at home on a Mac mini server that is not the most powerful one. There are a couple of available domains I like :)
Happy Easter!

Needless to say, new community sites are always good :)

A little update with plans for this forum. Since soon we need to migrate the server, that will be a good opportunity to do a few upgrades and a facelift. This means pushing SMF to the latest versions, and using a new forum theme (I heard the same people behind nxt.org are preparing it).

That will bring the layout to a more current design, also a good moment to simplify the front page further.

Concerning the current forum, that's good news! :)

http://nxt.thewiring.com is now https://nxtfolks.com :)
I've also installed an ssl certificate.
What is left is the performance. Of course it's not the fastest server so I guess that it will be overloaded when 5 people connect at the same time. :)
