Slack is website based, used it on a project the team was working on when we were across continents.

Its free, you could give it a go now and see how it feels.

Used Slack at work. It is free, but you only see the last 10k messages (to see all your messages you have to pay). Slack has phone and PC versions, and they sync up quite well. Was an instant success at work (where it replaced Jabber, which is not that great), and we reached 10k in less than one month.

Discourse is very much like Slack, except it is free (looks the same to me, and my son claims it is the same thing). Apparently, it is real popular in the gaming world. I am less familiar with Discourse, but I can ask my son to help (I think he set up Slack at his work).

WhatsApp for PC is not that bad, and it syncs up nicely with the phone (in fact, you need to have your phone on your WiFi or it will not work at all). Slack is much better than WhatsApp (and probably the same goes for Discourse as well), and you can set up "channels" for different topics.

Would it be possible to pay some small fee like through patreon or something just to pay the bills? I really don't know how much it costs to keep this place afloat but I would pay a fee to make sure this place stays alive at least in some form.

I would go along with Patreon. Have sponsored other initiatives there in the past. But someone at MF would have to set this up.

I will also ask my son what it would take to set up Discourse. I think that would be free and relatively easy to manage.

I've heard of Patreon, but isn't that a site for hot girls to beg punters for money?

It is used for other more legit things as well :-)

A bit late, to the mix, does Reddit allow you to do a private group thing?

Let's face it, forums in this form are a dying breed, and Danny is right, we don't know if m1ke will one day get fed up and the lights go off permanently here

Don't know about Reddit, not a big fan of the UI. I have recently set up Slack for family and friends, but I think Discord would be better for a forum.

I think the issue is we still want it to be primarily desktop based - as Han says, BB forums are a dying breed, and the ideal 'modern' solution would be an alternative which is still desktop based but has a mobile form.

I've literally never used reddit in my life. Wouldn't know where to start with that one.

Discourse - can that be used on both mobile and desktop?

Discord, not Discourse (my bad). Yes, both mobile and desktop. I am told it works just like Slack, and Slack syncs very well across devices. I can ask my son, who is more familiar.

(EDIT)

Tried Discord from both my laptop and my Android phone, it works quite well for me, and syncs nicely. Completely forgot I had used it a couple of years ago for a forum I was briefly interested in. Also, looks like it is easy enough to set up a "server", the forum I joined is has multiple categories with multiple "channels" each, kind of like MF.)

Slack vs. Discord: Slack is more "private" (it is intended as a private forum for workgroups), while Discord is intended to be more "public" (meaning, it can be shared online). Both have ways to control membership. Both are free, but the free version of Slack only allows you to see the last 10k messages. The two UIs are similar, though I prefer Slack ("cleaner").

Discord originally started for "gamers" but has gained in popularity, with 56M users earlier this year (link)
