IMO, online forums like Discourse do a much better job of keeping topics organized and accessible (plus, you can choose to have notifications sent via email if that's your preferred medium). You can see an example installation at https://meta.discourse.org/ <https://meta.discourse.org/>
Advantage: I use my mail client regularly. I don't visit other web forums regularly.

Email notification can sometimes repair part of the problem, but it doesn't always work. My own StackOverflow participation dropped to zero because they changed their email notification system for the worse.
