Discuss, in my opinion, i think that php experience is a must if you want to own a quite popular forum.

You definitely need some basic knowledge, especially if you want to configure and customize the forum to suit your needs.

Nowadays popularity and knowledge are no longer connected in any way. Unfortunately, this is the case.

No coding knowledge is required to own a forum. Either IPS or any other. But yeah, basic knowledge of Internet usage is required.

I am a software developer but the guy who handles my comunity only has basic html/css/js knowledge and its enough to do a great job, but some rare times if any slighgly more complex error appears he needs help to fix it.

I would say you can since its self explanatory as long as you know how to FTP and configure in the adminCP its simple but if you want to make actual edits to your theme or forum layout you will need IPS Logic knowledge as well as CSS/HTML and possibly some Javascript
