I guess that means I’m not prominent because I was never invited
From what I’ve heard it’s only really for people who want to get involved with development.
But I’ve never been involved, so I don’t really know.
I’ve only heard bits and pieces about it.
This is a fair point.
This is where I think Discord might be good - as an alternative to PMs.
In which case it’s probably a “Slack vs Discord” issue, but I haven’t really looked into either so I currently have no opinion.
Sometimes I feel that the forum format forces me to write text walls because I can’t deliver information small chunks and wait for an “ok, I understand that” response, I have to throw everything at once, because I’m uncertain of when the other person will reply.
Although I think Discord might be a better place for general chatter.
We’re always ending up with threads that go off-piste because certain people can’t resist making terrible jokes or chatting about unrelated things.
These people really are terrible,
what kind of person would make terrible jokes on such a business-only forum?
(*hides large pile of off-topic joke comments*.)
I wouldn’t be surprised if it was suggested but a certain someone overruled it.
I’ve seen loads of good ideas on Discourse meta shot down almost immediately without proper debate.
My impression from Discourse meta is that the ‘great leader’ says jump and the other developers say ‘how high?’.
