Why not host Vanilla Cloud locally?
I know that I'll get a bunch of people saying "because of pirates and stuff" but really I just want the features of cloud on my forum. Most of the features in cloud are possible through plugins but still. It would be cool if we got light-weight versions of each feature from cloud, with some limitations.
Also, I really just wanna have a forum for a small group but I can't do it with all the features I want with vanilla since the open source is limited and cloud is around 250$
