One thing I always feel this forum is missing is a section for work in progress projects, even if they never end up anywhere. Right now people are shy about their projects, so the only way you learn about them is by finding mentions of them such as these, when they're released on DUB repository or when someone makes an announcement post on Announce. The problem with Announce is that people only use it for official releases - and that's good - but we're missing out on all the work in progress buzz. I always reference the old dsource forums - http://dsource.org/forums/ - click at that, it's a graveyard now, but imagine going there back then - so exciting! So many fun projects. It's fun to scroll around and see what people are doing and maybe even join them in their effort. Most of these projects never got out of wip stages and got abandoned later on, but they were certainly interesting. Even now, many years later I like to browse them to look for inspiration and see what people were after. I'd really love a "Projects" section here on these forums, with perhaps sections for "WIP" and "Releases", so that people can post all the cool stuff they are working on for others to see.

Yeah, I often want a place to just gab. I kinda do in my blog, but that's more often something that is more finished since I feel like a blog post needs to have some more length to it: http://dpldocs.info/this-week-in-d/Blog.html I tweet from time to time but it is hard to fit code examples in there, like this one last night https://twitter.com/adamdruppe/status/1300914727627960320 yeah that took some trimming. of course if you are on the #d IRC channel you can often find me basically talking to myself as I think out loud about whatever code I'm doing at the moment... lol But what I think would be really cool though is like an internal twitter... no size limit but also a culture that there's no expectation for length and quality. Just casual "think out loud" or in-progress project updates that can split into chat. I could write that in a few hours. then blog about it omg. but the hard part isn't technical, it is just getting people to actually use it.

Mastodon instance? But if you do create an ad-hoc service, I'd very much use it if you didn't necessitate registration with an email.

I second a Mastodon instance. Would be great for short thoughts.

Currently we have discord, slack, IRC, Facebook, Official Forum and IRC with community members in them. I don't think there's shortage of places to interact with community members for feedback on such ideas. I'm on the discord (ran by Wild), Facebook, IRC (rarely cus it takes me back) and of course the forum. The slack I have no ideas how people get in. I know there's a number of members in there too.

Unfortunately you need to be invited. Anyone can do it, if you're interested. We just need an email address. -- /Jacob Carlborg

True. We should consolidate talk platforms. It's far too chaotic. And there's a Facebook? Seriously? And Slack? Seriously? That's where I have to sacrifice 1GB of RAM to? Discord has the featureset of Slack. I use Discord for real time communications, quick questions, and off-topic things. Sort of similar to IRC. Did you mean to say we have two IRCs?

That's more used by like dconf coordinators. The places new people come on for chat is just the irc and the discord.

Part of it is like Facebook being too much distraction for me. But I go there from time to time.

I personally use discord (only recently) and slack (local community) but there're Facebook people too. All have their different feel and audience.

So I think some kind of user account is useful and I figure I'll require them... but it will be just a random username+password rather than a required email or whatever. Simply set your browser to auto fill and it should be pretty painless... would that be good enough for you?

Awesome Adam. Now I really want to sew your D web workflow and stack in use at DConf Online. Don't say no!!

Yeah, I did tell the dconf people I'd do a livestream thing if they need me, but I was thinking about making an Asteroids clone or something then porting it to webassembly like I did with tetris so I could talk about the library etc too. But a web site is tempting as well, just not sure I could actually do something useful with it in under 90 mins. I can surely slap something together and talk about the code but I prefer having a real goal and those often take me a longer time. Later today though I will post a blog about the source code to this new thing. There's actually not much to it, it just looks a bit longer than it is because I did a lot of copy/paste lol
