Why the name Mangolassi?



  • Hi all,
    I am a new visitor here. Discovered this forum through https://community.nodebb.org/topic/180/who-is-using-nodebb. As we are using the same platform for our forum too.

    You can check out http://app.dealstan.com.

    We have some what tried to customise it to our needs here in India. So we have also upgraded to the latest version and see our forum's inability to post ("Click on Submit button") once everyday. It only starts working again, when we've like re-started the forum through our back end servers. Do you also face similar issues?

    Also out of curiosity why the name "Mango Lassi". Has this got a "desi connection" 😉



  • Welcome to the ML community! Great to see new people here.



  • Welcome! Glad that you could join us here.



  • Welcome to MangoLassi!



  • Welcome! I'm not sure about a Desi connection, I'll let the mods speak to the name origins.



  • Welcome to the community!



  • Welcome to the family!



  • I don't believe we are having daily issues with being unable to submit posts, that need to be resolved with a reboot, but a mod could probably tell you for sure. Not sure what's going on there.

    We see this a little but it is only in the browser. Browsers need to be restarted from time to time but not the NodeBB engine. We got weeks without restarting that.



  • Welcome. Sorry I am so late to the party. Welcome.



  • Welcome to the Party



  • Welcome and I heard there were Mango Tarts somewhere!



  • @nervo welcome to the MangoLassi community! Great to see you here. We always welcome visitors over from the NodeBB forums. Great to see other users of the platform checking us out. To the best of our knowledge this is the busiest NodeBB platform out there. Every post that you see here started here, nothing here migrated from another platform or community. We built MangoLassi from day one on NodeBB.

    There is no Desi connection, I am afraid. The title was proposed a bit as an inside joke but a bunch of people liked it and asked to keep it. So it stuck. A very popular forum that is much like this one makes references to spicy food heavily and, of course, the perfect compliment to a very spicy mean is a delicious Mango Lassi. Hence the name.

    Our community is very international, though. We have people from everywhere here and more joining from all over the world all of the time.
