Well said. I really do want people to contribute more, frankly that sort of involvement has taken a big hit over the downtime. I just hope it's not too late. If anyone has any
ideas on how to give the Project back some momentum, please please please do tell..>>165
I feel this is a general thing that came with having a Discord. Discord's userbase is well… lazy. They can (and do) sit in up to 100 servers, and never participate in any. In a sense, I feel Discord is yet another nail in the coffin for smaller communities.
Furthermore, the ease of use Discord gives is, although enjoyable, bad for the userbase. Every cunt can make a Discord and join the server in a minute. Quality control is rather low.
Combine those with Discord staff's horrible support and I really want to leave Discord. The main issues with that however are the obvious ones - which alternative to use, and how to deal with the expected large activity hit.
We've got a Rocket.CHAT test up at https://chat.systemspace.link/
, but people won't use it unless required, as it's obviously more clunky.>>166
On one hand, it would spark a lot of activity, which is a very good thing, but on the other hand, those people will be of low quality and not contribute. On the other hand, while it may be a grabbag, a large demographic also brings with it a larger chance of good people.
