@gotwf said in Use forums rather than Slack/Discord to support developer community [mooreds.com]:
here is also #nodebb on libera.chat.
Gotta love that IRC.
yeah, I really don't see much utility in temporal mediums like Slack over that of IRC.
On my phone though, I feel everyone's pain who isn't smart enough to install Weechat support so they're always connected, but other than that. IRC is lightweight, and simple and to the point - and ANY chat based system is temporal and the relevant info scrolls away (unlike forum software).
So yah, IRC is king in that regard, and if you wan't pretty pictures you can bridge your Libera.Chat chans with matrix so why is Slack even a thing?
