Need a Professional Collaboration Forum / Chat Solution
In an ideal world, we could combine Reddit with Discord. Free would be ideal, but paid is an option. I've seen a few forums with a chat addon but it's often a joke with no features intended as a single chat room. This will be a place for multiple guests to create an account and participate in a community discussion. We want the forum aspect with threads that are specific to a an issue or question. We also want to have a sort of chat option for broader subjects like "general", "off topic".
For example, if you had a sub-reddit, but added a subreddit level discord channel on top of the threads.
