Micromax is taking its reboot quite seriously. Much like the previous attempt under the “YU” brand, Micromax has launched brand new community forums for the “IN” brand. The forums are live on Micromax’s official website (MicromaxInfo.com), however, they do not look complete yet. A large part of the platforms is still un-themed and non-usable.
The forums are powered by the open-source forum platform – phpBB. I believe that phpBB will not be a very scalable forum platform if Micromax gets a lot of users at the platform. It is still nice for an initial kickstart. Micromax can migrate to other platforms later on if required.
Forums are great places to look for help and to interact with fellow users. If Micromax manages its forum platform properly, then it will be a healthy place where Micromax users unite and build a fan base.
User registration and login are already enabled. I have tried signing up, but the mail delivery system seems to be down as of now. I never received an activation email, making it impossible for me to log in. Hopefully, Micromax will improve and fix the forums in the coming days/weeks.
