[Edited in response to Kaspar’s comment]
After @kaspar’s push to get Calendars and JitSi integrated into the forum. I was thinking about how much of our communication we can move into one place. I know GOSH has a Riot/Matrix room, but I think being detached from the forum it is not used too much.
The forum is great for detailed discussions we want to archive. When multiple people are online at the same time and end up almost having a conversation in the forum. Sometimes this would be better handled in chat.
Kaspar has install a plugin called Babble which allows chat directly in the forum. There is a general Chat, and also direct messaging
(we can turn DMs off)(which is off). The chat is an experiment. If it works well it will be a place for quick fire discussions without derailing a thread, but it runs the risk of being yet another annoying communication channel to check.
To use the chat click the speech bubbles at the left of the page.
The chat is an experiment please let us know how you feel either in a comment or in the poll.
- Chat is a good thing
- Chat is good and please turn on DMs
- The chat is annoying/unhelpful
- I have no strong feelings either way
Also I made a GOSH emoji!
