All discussion is on telegram/discord

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The lack of discussion on these forums makes this coin look dead compared to reality. From a marketing perspective, I question the wisdom of having most of the discussion on mobile apps rather than the open web that anyone can find and easily search... Perhaps those chats can be mirrored somewhere?

Forums are a dying medium of communication imo. Most of the younger people - and that is the majority in crypto space - are used to a more chat-ish and fast communication than a forum can give you.
That said, there isn't that much discussion going on in Discord/Telegram for the moment as well. Everyone is waiting for Taurion/SME and the average crypto people are not that tech-savvy to be interested in the underlying tech, let alone being able to discuss it.

Now you could argue, that bitcointalk is pretty popular for the old-school medium that a forum is, but take away the bounties and you would lose 80% of traffic there as well.

My problems with this are:

1) It is pretty difficult to have high quality discussions in the chats, so people with the most to contribute may just not bother. Ie the community is possibly selecting for "not tech-savvy" members.

2) The chats are not getting indexed by search engines, so a lot of info is hidden away from people just looking up xaya.

3) You need to possibly sign up and dl an app to even look at the info in the chats, which is a higher barrier to entry than just checking out a forum via your web browser.

Anyway, what do you think about my suggestion to mirror the chats somewhere?

I was never a big fan of telegram for exactly the reasons you point out. Valuable information gets lost pretty fast and those  really interested in the tech and possiblities won't bother discussing something there between lambo memes and wallet problems.

Moving to Discord is a step in the right direction therefore already. Here you at least have dedicated channels for all kinds of talk.

Regarding mirroring the chats, I think it's a good idea. I have no idea how this works though and if it would be possible to only mirror valuable information and cut all the chit-chat out ?

I'd imagine you just run a bot that scrapes the posts and then updates a webpage. Filtering the posts would require some sort of anti-spam-like algo so not sure if that would be worth doing.

The Xaya group on telegram will be changed into as channel soon. The taurion group on telegram is really for when we start enticing people in with some giveways (not ones that will affect the game hardly).

Discord and the forum will be the main places for discussion.

There is also of course the Xaya XMPP chat that we may be using more soon...
