I think I'm making a full of myself, but does jekyll have the ability
to become a forum if used with git?

I'm thinking of using jekyll to make a forum with the usual stuff like
logging in and all, but I haven't read the docs yet, so please
enlighten me on the matter.

No it doesn't, and please take no offense when I say this, but if you do not
realise that then Jekyll is probably not for you.

Jekyll is a static site generator, it's purpose is to create static html
files that are served to website visitors - to host a forum you are looking
for server side processing (such as PHP) and databases (such as MySQL), not
static pages.
