After using the forms for quite some time and having been a avid forum user on a number of sites of the past decade. It seems that the APC forums here is due for a upgrade, or a complete overhaul. There are numerous popular features missing from this forum site that popular forums have today. Also simple features like mentioning don't seem to be working or easy to use. I provided a article of popular forum boards here. Discourse is a personal preference of mine from this list: https://websitesetup.org/best-forum-software/
I think the folks at APC should take some time and consider switching to a different forum software, or put some serious development effort in to what they are currently using.
