Because a wiki is mostly an affair people goes and reads to do stuff on
their own, while a forum requires constant interaction with people.
Once the wiki is fixed, maintaining it will be relatively fast unless
you make big sweeping changes to LEDE every day.
I already said above that just making a forum and letting it run on its
own like the OpenWRT forum will not be good.
Really, a LEDE forum isn't for posting funny cat pics and memes, most
people will post there somewhat technical questions, and this means we
should plan to have some volunteer that answers them (even if just with
a link to the wiki or FAQ or whatever) and also does mod duties.
The general hope is to kick-start the forum community so eventually
there will be other users in forum that answer questions, but if you
just open the forum people will ask, not get answers, go away, and no
community will form there.
