I find the layout of the Ubuntu Discourse somehow confusing.

The interface is just too plain and the colour palette too pale, so you 
cannot distinguish elements at first look. Also the upper orange bar 
takes a lot of page space, leaving little readable area.

I don't know if that can be configured, but it obviously needs a tweak. 
I would try to improve that before shutting the platform down, because 
you cannot tell if something is a good idea been badly baked.

It's like when Ubuntu One was shut down. It isn't that people weren't 
interested in having a free file sync platform in Ubuntu, but just that 
they disliked their files to be WIPED.
