no phpBB please, at least v2 which doesn't have per thread search so you can't find anything on longer threads.

I would use some StackOverflow alternative, there are several around.

i3 window manager uses Askbot for this:

Here is one that is open source and done in Python:

The FAQ is located at [1] and it's regularly updated when I receive a
lot of similar questions.

We have a wiki too, even though it's just one page on archlinux wiki [2].
It's pretty much up to date with ranger 1.6.0 and contains a bunch of
good tips.

There was a full-blown wiki on ourproject.org (a moinmoin wiki, no
mediawiki; perhaps that's why nobody used it?) but I removed the link
from ranger's website due to inactivity and in hope that people go to
the more active archlinux wiki page instead.

I am surprised :)  Not sure if positively or negatively surprised. :)

I encourage everyone to use and contribute to the archlinux wiki page [2].
I'll take some time to add tips there as well.
