With Debiki, a creative new approach

to discussions online.

Debiki is open source software for forums, blogs and embedded comments. We also provide forum hosting (work in progress).

Features

Find what you are looking for

The most liked comments are shown at the top of the page — your forum visitors won't have to scroll through thousands of comments to find the interesting information. Details: We've developed an algorithm that somewhat takes into account which comments people actually read, not only upvotes.

Busts Myths

Our comment rating system warns people about factual errors, and helps people realize when they are wrong.

Interesting and On Topic

Off-topic threads and less interesting threads are collapsed, so they don't steal people's attention.

Log in with Google, Facebook, Yahoo

People can leave comments as guests, or login with Google, Facebook, Yahoo and OpenID.

Search that works well

Debiki uses a dedicated full-text-search database (ElasticSearch) for good search results.

SEO friendly

The most interesting replies are shown first, so those are the ones that are indexed by search engines like Google and Bing (rather than some random first replies).

Planned features

Reply to many people at once

You can reply to more than one person at once although we use a threaded layout. — When you do that, we revert to a hybrid flat-threaded layout, for that particular reply.

Correct and up-to-date information

People can suggest improvements of each other's texts, and in that way fix broken links and factual errors.

Shortcuts for quick navigation

Use keyboard shortcuts to quickly navigate up to the parent post to refresh your memory, and back again to the reply you were reading.

View comments sorted chronologically

Debiki is mainly a threaded forum, which could make it hard to find the most recent replies. However, this is solved by a 'View last reply' button, and 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons.

Self moderating

When users interact with the forum in a good way, the forum software starts trusting them, and allows them to help out with moderating the forum.

Features from Discourse

Discourse is new good forum software however it doesn't attempt to show the interesting and useful replies first. We've been inspired by Discoures already, and plan to copy more of its features.
