What is the best free community online message board

Our community has a family list serve powered by Yahoo groups that they currently use. I'm trying to get them to switch to another service because checking email can be tedious and people keep asking the same questions. I'm looking for suggestions for a community message board that is free. Thanks!

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    Many online communities are using slack to collaborate with others. And slack's free time will come handy for you.

      As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.

      I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.

      Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.

      I love that flock is stable, easy to use and has a good base of application integrations. I typically miss flowdock, but the overall collaborative experience is better than slack. Been using a little over 6 mos.- couldn't pick that though
