ipfs name to assign the same name to different versions of the content.
— How do I host an interactive content that receives input from users? A forum or an imageboard where users are able to POST forms containing comments?

I’m not an expert but I’ve read there is a way for peers to talk directly to each other, not sure how it’s actually done.

@chen-chan: yes, it’s possible to write services on top of some of IPFS’ core components. There’s even an example! Eventually this will be done with cleaner separation via libp2p.

You might want to take a look at IPFS Boards. It’s still very early, but it mostly works already

README.md from the
master branch currently says that it is outdated and the development happens on the ipfs0.4 branch.
README.md from the
ipfs0.4 branch currently says that it uses IPFS’s POST protocol.
The repository of IPFS POST currently contains only the initial commit that was necessary to create it on GitHub.
So, something is obviously on its way to the Go implementation of IPFS v0.4, and that something would probably resemble HTTP POST, but currently it’s still underdocumented.

Well, actually it says it solves some problems with the help of POST.
If you think it’s misleading, I’ll probably change it though.
Work on POST needs to start, my app already has quite a few problems POST will face solved though, so we can take some inspiration from that I hope

Indeed it does! i will have time in Feb for POST. we can do a kick off hangout first week of feb. ideally we can get to a very simple spec on top of IPLD. IPLD is already clear enough that we can do it.
take a look at this example for now: https://github.com/ipfs/ipld-examples/blob/master/post/example.yml
based on a format like what’s in https://github.com/ipfs/POST/issues/6
