Hey, thanks for releasing this. I'll try to check this out ASAP. I'm glad this is in Python, because I'm utterly hopeless with PHP in which most web discussion platforms are written in.

I'm wondering if you considered python-sqlalchemy. If I understand its use correctly, it will allow the users to select their SQL backend and abstract it away as far as the software is concerned. It might be useful because it will allow using SQLite, which is a bit more friendly to noobs like myself.

I'm open to new options! I'm a big fan of MySQL, but if SQLite can make it easier for new developers to join in, then I don't mind.

I probably can't make it happen help yet, but I'm interested in learning how to work with Flask, and with Python software (as opposed to single-file scripts which I've been doing so far), so I'll probably try to play with Konsent's code and maybe try to get it to work with SQLite as soon as I get some leisure time.

Konsent is pretty simple compared to some bigger projects, so it's a good place to start. Before we start doing anything drastic we really should clean up the code, though. It's a huge burning pile of routes and unnecessary functions at the moment, could use a loving hand. That's also a good way to get to know the software.

Hope to see some pull requests from you soon comrade!
