i will stay at the forum and as well in Europe the irc is not the timezone of irc
The IRC seems to suit my personal timezone
If for no other reason than its formatting tools (it supports posting in Markdown), it's very well-suited to discussions requiring the exchange of machine-readable file snippets, like code or configuration files.

Discourse is free, and can run on a $5/mo Digital Ocean droplet. This forum probably needs a slightly bigger droplet, but I doubt it would need more than the $20/mo one.
Much harder is migrating the content and user ranks.
