Design Intent (Loomio Vs. Discourse)

Jacob Gadikian Public Seen by 200

Hi guys! I'm sure that everyone here is aware of the Discourse project for web forums. My questions are:

Do Loomio.org people see loomio as a complement to or a replacement for Discourse & forums?

Should Loomio evolve into a platform that helps these organizations perform all of their functions?

We love Discourse! I know many people working on Loomio admire their design. Loomio will always be focused on decision making, and discussion formats that support that. I know we have a long way to go with our commenting system before it really nails it, though. I see Loomio and Discourse as complementary tools, since their focus is on open ended discussion, and ours is on bringing things to an actionable outcome.
