1st of all, thank you for bringing this thread up.
So, as @calmh asked, I give you the answer:
As the title of this thread suggests, it is meant for overall discussion. Not that I’m trying to imitate other communities, such as XDA, Reddit Android sub, YouTube Vanced, Blokada, but it’s a “trending” platform that certain projects/communities have been using that is user friendly.
You guys are correct about already having IRC as a IM platform. I’m just saying that Telegram could be a neat friendly UI, while IRC is a bit “old-school” and limited for me. It kinda remembers me the times of MySpace, ICQ and MSN Messenger times.
I’m NOT telling that IRC is outdated (mostly because some people still use it until today), but it’s kinda dead there. Fyi, I’ve been trying to reach people to help out with some contribution, but I had to do the researches all on my own.
That is, many users are just afk’ing hanging out there and you don’t get the whole story. And that’s where Telegram comes in: it’s all in the cloud, so you can read older discussions at anytime you’d like to.
Besides there are thousands of features you could make use to give examples of your issues/errors/problems. (Voice/video messages, instant picture sharing, bots to aide people with lots of features, cloud-based, unlimited cloud storage, unique private @username alias [not revealing your real phone #], etc.)
As I already said: it’s a place for discussion, so people that are still interested into more specific support, would come here or on GitHub, creating a new thread or issue.
Also, I’m not asking for the official staff care about it specifically (only if you want to), but it’s just another way to get better help with community volunteers, as I mentioned in OP.
If you don’t mind at all, I can create the public group and give the admin rights for people that are interested in taking proper care of it.
What do you say?
