phpBB is apparently stuck in the 90s, I can only set username/group colors from the web-safe palette from a picker, if I change the color code manually in the DB the group management crashes

@xldrkp Yes, I'd use it over phpbb any day if I had the option just for getting Ruby instead of php, but it 1. requires an actual server (we only have a shared webspace host here) and 2. the userbase is already familiar with phpbb and not exactly willing to relearn forums (esp. given how different discourse is).
