Support your Interest and topics on our Forums ?
We have had some requests for new Subject Forum areas in our Discourse.
We are open to that, however it would be ideal that the person requesting is also prepared to support the nascent place, via searching and posting related content they think is valuable and appropriate.
A Forum without users is a sad thing. Ours is happily starting to see more use – as some people discover there’s great content already, and how much nicer an article can look there, as compared to the plain-text simple posting in Mastodon.
Some Forum advantages?
Certainly - I would mention :
- Rich text formatting, including Bold, Italicized,
- Full Markdown is supported, and the post editor has GUI controls, it’s just like a word processor.
- Heading sizes – like a web page, we can control Heading sizes, from Title to subsections as needed.
Give your readers a visual break? Forum supports Horizontal Rulers, HR, and they lighten up and ease reading.
can be inserted very easily. Via Import button, or simply Copy Paste.
or even via the image URL if it’s already out in the web.
images can be placed In-line – inserted in the text body where they belong.
not at the tail end of a post like in Mastodon. Example ?
- can be linked to an specific post, easily.
- Quotes are also easily used.
And our Discourse Forum is open to signup by anyone in the Fediverse interested. A verified email and you are in.
Support your new areas ?
Having personally requested a new SubForum for a wonderful piece of Software (the Pinafore client for mastodon and Pleroma instances), I am now there bringing content and inviting people to join. Which they will do, if there’s something to show.
