It is always possible sometime we may or may not support that forum

Now if your asking for a definate answer at this point I will say there are no plans to support more forums at this time

ah, thats too bad. i was hoping to not write my own system.

have you ever considered making a forum support light version that made it easier to support different forum software?

it would not have any login functionality or user management. it would instead only verify authentication via the particular forum's auth method.

is user authenticated via forum?
continue
else
send to forum login form

if you moved most of the features back to the forum to handle, you could probably support much more software.

No actually given every forum is different we must custom write an integration file for each integration. So basically it all comes back to whatever forums we get asked about most usually have priority
