#IRC #communityhelp?


Hey guys, after years and years and years about hearing how cool the IRC #forums are and how everything of any momentousness on the Internet takes place on there, I want to get in on the action. Any tips on what client to use? Is there one that works well on both Windows and Android? And what #chatrooms are worth checking out?

To a lesser degree, what’s the relationship between IRC and #Riot / #Matrix, if any?


 

New Forum


#forums #gaming #boardgames #cardgames

In an attempt to stem the tide of #gplusrefugees flocking over to MeWe or some other siloed site because "OMG there are communities!!" I figured let's start building up the forum presence here in an attempt to drive some traffic this way.

Thus: I have created a Board Games Forum for discussion of all things Board and Card Games. Join now!

Using Friendica with Groups or Forums as an alternative to Google+
I was hoping to use my Drupal website and blog as an RSS feed to my other networks but Drupal is quite complex (powerful?) in setting up Views and Feeds. Although it all basically works and I do have an RSS feed running it does not include images I have added to my posts. Of course, this is something that works well with Wordpress but

Friendica, as a macroblog (ie. unlike microblogs such as Twitter or Mastodon), is probably the most powerful and most connected out of them all. It can import from Twitter, G+, and others and also export to many networks.

But one concept to grasp is that it does not have groups/forums linked under your Profile. Everything is a separate Profile. So you create a Profile and set is as a personal, forum, or whatever type and then give it attributes. This is quite powerful as you can also set each one to mirror (import) posts from a different source. So I created a separate Forum on Friendica called Gadgeteerza for my tech posts. It imports from an RSS feed (I'm testing out Blogger for this right now as I need a g... show more

Forums and the Fediverse


!Hubzilla Support Forum

Are forums Hubzilla-network exclusive, or can users of other Fediverse-flavours like Diaspora or Friendica access (read, write to) forum(-channels)?

If this is possible, how would users of other networks address forums on Hubzilla?

Thanks for insights.

A Thing about Moderation


Not as in being moderate, but as in moderating online discussions.

This is One of The Things I said I needed to write about a week ago (and if you want to know what my writing schedule looks like ... this is actually Very Good Productivity compared to my Normal Process ... of which the Less Said, the Better.)

And ... I could try to write this all up in a post, but I think I'm going to have more fun as a give and take in comments. So that's how This Thing will be Done.

(How the West was Won -- How the Thing was Done. One of these has great promise for a TV series....)

I'll drop a few bits though:

* I'm co-moderating (with about 12 others, of whom roughly 4-5 are active) a 3,000+ user G+ community, as well as a much smaller one.
* I've got mod chops from Reddit and a few other forums over the years.
* There's a lot of thinking going on about What Come Next and the tools people would like to see.
* I'm also subject to being moderated on a few forums. Some better than others.

New to Friendica


Hello !Friendica Support :-)

I've just opened an account on #friendica, and I'm trying to figure out how this works. Do people post #newhere posts, as they do on Diaspora?

Have to start somewhere, so - I'm trying to understand #forums. I've read the support page, but it's hard to follow. Do forums function like facebook groups? Is there a directory where I can see what forums exist? I see I'm listed as a 'guest' when I look at the the support forum - is that different from a forum member?

Thanks.
