Discussion Topics

Post by Muir » Sat Mar 30, 2019 12:17 pm

So some of you took part in the food waste discussion in chat - it was really helpful and appreciated, thank you! So we had the suggestion that it would be good to have more discussions like that. So a room in chat for a limited time where we discuss a particular topic.

We've had a couple of suggestions so please vote in the poll for which you'd like to see.

Also, if you can respond with lengths of time you think would be good to have it for eg. a day. And what day(s) you think could work best.

I also think it could be good to copy a log to the forums so people can continue the discussion here afterwards if they like.

My suggestion would be 24 hours, I feel like any longer and it could get stale, but 24 hours would hopefully keep it moving as more people come in and out during the day.

I agree with it being put on here afterwards... maybe have a special room for it within the General category so that they can all be a thread of their own in one place.

Everybody feel free to put topics in here too if there's something you feel strongly about that is chat appropriate. We'd love to hear from you all.

Yeah I think shorter is better, it encourages it to be a discussion. Is there any particular days you think would be good?

24 hours is grand if you announce when it'll be. Maybe we could assign a specific day for doing this? A log here would be good also, but maybe leave that open a week so people could add their thoughts?

We can just leave the log open on the forums. I do really like the idea of the sub forum Steph but I might start with them in here and move them over as we get busier because general on the forums isn't moving very fast yet.

Is there no tracker for the discord channel to see what the high traffic days are and then use that for deciding which day?
