I’m here to pull the trigger on the Discord server I’ve wanted to create with you for just about as long as I’ve been around. This project means a lot to me and I’d like to contribute in a substantial way.
I also know that I’m almost certainly going to need help doing so, so the primary purpose of this first post is to ask that anyone interested in moderating/administrating/otherwise contributing please contact me here, via Email, or even by phone if you’d like: +1 (573) 823-4380.
My apologies if you came to this post looking for an invite… It shouldn’t be very long at all (as in, two weeks at most.) In establishing this buffer period, I am working to avoid the common mistake (which I have made) of distributing invites to a space which is still being configured.
If you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, Discord themselves have published a handy landing page about their platform as a collaborative space for open source communities.
If you’re familiar with Slack, I wrote a brief explanation of why I chose to use Discord in its place for my little media company.
For the record, I want to do this with as close to zero labor required from the team as possible. I intend to contribute as much or as little as the community decides I should.
(Also, I did run this by Matt today, if you were wondering.)
I hope to hear from you soon! Thank you!
