Hi all, we’ve long considered the idea of a Discord Channel but given the number of platforms already maintained by the ThreeFold Foundation and our efforts to grow those channels, the idea hasn’t gotten enough momentum to move forward.
Someone asked about it on Twitter today and I thought it would be a good idea to instead pose the question to the community: should we create a Discord Channel?
This is really a question of supply and demand. “Supply” being do we have enough resources to maintain a healthy and quality Discord channel, and “demand” being is there enough reason to have a Discord channel to begin with?
This person who asked the question on Twitter also offered their support as a moderator, so one idea from the standpoint of “supply” is to get the community involved in maintaining the channel. But what about the growth of the channel?
I think a prerequisite to creating a Discord channel would be to have enough buy-in from the community to support or even lead these efforts. Discord could become a truly community-led platform for the ThreeFold project.
As for “demand,” well we know that there are more than enough people using Discord that would be interested in ThreeFold. But another question of demand is, would creating a Discord channel just be duplicating the efforts we already have on Telegram and on our forum, as examples.
Anyway, I’m curious to hear your thoughts. Let’s make this decision together.
