We think it goes without saying that the individual components described here turn into something incredible when mixed/matched to form community platforms that thrill and engage their members.
However, the potential won't be realized without a great UI/UX. Arguably the most important part of this community platform is how all these individual components are tied together into one beautiful, seamlessly integrated, ever evolving and improving system (through the continual optimization of each individual component).
That's not to say we need one specific frontend for all communities and if we did go that route, at minimum it would need to be brandable and customizable for each. Out-of-the-box a standard frontend implemantion should be available.
However, we should also focus on ensuring the relevant end points/data are available from each module so community leaders do not have to rely on the standard frontend and have the option of building unique and community-centric interfaces that suit their specific needs and personalities.
