Hello Ladies and Gentlemen of MCM!
Here I bring you a project that I manage along with Samerton.
NamelessMC is a lightweight and powerful forums software that can be used on virtually any hosting.
It has a super easy installation and we even have a support discord in case you fall into any pits and need help with fixing anything!
Now, you may be wondering as to why people would use this when there are other things you can use to make a forums.
Well, the answer is simple and here are some examples for some backup.
Enjin, for example, is free but it does not come with many options unless you pay a monthly fee to get those features.
NamelessMC has most if not all of Enjin's premuim features and the best part is, we are open source so you can add features of your own!
Another example would be Xenforo.
Xenforo is a very slick looking forums software (I am not going to lie) but it costs $150 to just get a licence and get those features on it. Why pay that much money when you can go through a simple installation and get most of the features you can get from Xenforo but be able to control all the features in it with NamelessMC.
Now, lets get to the fun part.
The NamelessMC team is working on a plugin as we speak and it is to be released really soon.
This plugin will have features such as Integration with the server and forums, live rank integration (PermissionsEX Manager), account creation for the forums right with one command In game, and so much more!
Here is the recent changelog for the most stable version we released a few days ago.
