Between the mailing list, facebook group, slack thread, and subreddit, do we really need this forum to exist?
Please share your opinions regarding the pros and cons of having a discourse forum for SuperCollider.
edit: just heard back from one of the mods over at lines, who brought up some relevant points:
facebook is evil
reddit is kind of ugly, and has some social weirdness attached to it
the mailing lists are kind of awkward to set up, and the archiving system doesn’t always work
slack is a professional tool, which can be a bit of a barrier to access
conversely, discourse is neat, easy, decentralised, and offers users choice in how they want to engage with discussions
edit 2: if you haven’t already, it is worth having a quick look at discourse’s feature set.
