I’m fully for a addition Go chat, as the language chats are quite ambiguous in regards to topic. Why force the English chat to limit itself to Go, while other language rooms talk whatever they want.
Furthermore, English chat may be willing to change it’s topic, but most people simply don’t want to butt in, when we are in full discussion. It can’t be seen from the outside, how willing chat is to give up the current topic for Go.
And using Offtopic in the classic way as a place for random music links and for sensitive topics like politics seems more sensible, too, than to force all english chat people into Offtopic all the time
We all know it’s a silly solution, right? That’s why I’m not going to join. Whatever I or you will write there will be seen by how many people? Not many, and someone will have to make all that effort to scout and invite new members. With that in mind just writing it in go basics group chat is more useful at this point. Or here on forums.
And I’m already doing it from time to time, for example, in go news topic.
Do you think it’s something worthwhile that OGS members should see? I think so. And the point is that a lot more people would see it on main site. Tons of people engage in OGS chats who’s never seen on forums.
Offering to do this in a group chat that no one sees in response to my post where I talk about visibility to new people /:
Should OGS forums also have only 3 topics visible to new members by default?
I’m warming up to the idea of just using go basics group for go stuff. I don’t want to admit but probably the demand for go discussions isn’t high enough to warrant separate channel, when I think about it.
