It’s true that the forum is working well so far on LSP (only been going a few days though), and it’s a much better system than what was used previously on here.

But, the LSP community is bigger and more active compared to Geeks Life, and the members have a reason to use that forum because it’s part of their coaching program. They also have Luria and a few moderators to ensure that things are kept active.

Even if some of the more active Geeks+ members here started posting on a forum I’m not convinced they would get enough feedback/engagement from the rest of the members to make them want to continue. I’ve seen forums started on this site and Geek Beat before it, and they often start off being popular, but after a few months they become ghost towns – and that’s with more members.

Black might look ok on the set, but I already think it looks a bit dark, and it feels like something that doesn’t need changing – especially if it takes away from time spent doing other things, or means you can’t use the set for the next show.

I think it’s a great idea.. only hope it doesn’t add to much to your workload. I would love to put up more content and other geeky stuff out there. So this would be cool. And maybe it will help the community grow and have more interaction between the GL members … because that is what i’m missing in slack now .. more conversations between GL members … it’s always the same cool people .. and I think there are a lot more out there that could make it even more fun to be a part of…

Yeah, a Forum would be great smile I noticed that in slack only 15 to 20 people talking or posting stuff, and remember Paul said there a 89 people there. A forum would be more organized and you can follow the post you want smile

Have fun by tearing your set down.
I have to rework my space too.
Cabel mess grin

See you

As I mentioned in my email reply, I can’t monitor Slack all day/night. I intentionally close it down so I’m not getting interrupted constantly. When I do pop in to see what’s been happening, I can only join the current conversation. I’d prefer to have the conversations separated so I can choose the ones that interest me and chime in. So, I would be more active in Geeks Life if you implement a forum using IP Board.

You made a good point in the video about slack sometimes or often making it hard to follow the convo or even take part each time you want. I’m for the forum. I have plenty of access to web browsers anyway. I’m voting yes!

Community sounds great… not sure about the black background. With the LED’s though it might be really cool.

So, if there was a forum, would the content be publicly viewable to non-members and appear in Google etc?
