Well, as long as you have enough members, the functions really don't matter. People are still using Usenet

I would say you need a community of people asking and answering questions. You need the ability to edit questions and answers and moderate users as appropriate to maintain a good environment. You need a privacy policy and clear licensing of content. You need to constantly promote the forum. Rest as you go along.
