OpenGeofiction

I was thinking...

Posted by JoshuaRoadMapper on 6 January 2017 in English (English)

There is a chat thing called discord. It's like a chat creator.

If we start a discord chat to talk about OpenGeofiction, it could be one of the great places to share plans about our nations, cities, highways, landscape, etc.

We could also do a discord chat for OpenStreetMap, TopoMap, or whatever.

If you think it's a good idea, I can make the discord chat if you want and I will send the link when I am ready.

I've approached other OGF users about this previously, the main issue being nobody really has it, but I agree that at least for the collaborative projects Discord could be a great resource, or alternative, the Fur's favorite of Telegram which I am behind too.

Not a bad idea although i'm more for IRC. No need to download anything, simple to use...pretty straight forward

Should it be called OpenGeofiction Hangout or OpenGeofiction (something else)?

And we need chat rules.

I'm already using Discord for other projects and I really like the program. I think we should just call it OpenGeofiction.

Okay.

So, OpenGeofiction admins will become an admin on the chat. An application will be needed to become a chat mod.

I don't know what I will be. I would still like to help manage the chats though.

If there should be other ranks, post them here.

I think that a forum would be more suitable as chat is more for discussions "here and now", but OGF users are logging in on different times. It would be more sensible for a community of pepole who use it on one specified time, but why not ;) .
