Welcome to the brand new diem-connect forum. It is intended to be a place for our european discourse surrounding the policy pillars and our common political discussions. The timeline-feeling of the forum helps to stay informed about everything that is going on.
A litte introduction:
- on startup you can see all discussions that are taking place in the forum
- with tags (the menus on the left side) you can filter the discussions to see only topics that belong to a certain tag
- the Channel/tag announcements is locked, so that only moderators can post something in there. The Topics are still open for discussion.
- There is the possibility to assign certain roles like moderator, or DSC-Coordinator to anyone. Some exclusive Channels/Tags can only be seen by them.
- in your profile menu you can activate automated mail-notification
- Added media upload support, so that files to a file-size of ~2mb can be shared (incl. illustrator and photoshop files.) (the cap could be raised..)
Sadly there isnt the possibility yet for Private Messaging. But the developers of the framework have it on their to-do list. (oh, i found it You can now send private messages by hovering the avatar of a user, and click the dropdown menu. You funnily have to activate a tag and write a title message (it then appears in between the other discussion topics. happy posting!)
In my mind it is important to not only discuss the political issues for their own sake, but to encourage the community to condense their ideas into concrete proposals or building knowledge-networks of links and references to elaborate their arguments. The associated wiki is an ideal place for this kind of endeavour. It is open for everyone to edit (you only have to make an account if you want to upload stuff), and can thus serve as a repository for important ideas that you want to preserve and share.
Furthermore i think this forum could be a perfect place to inform us mutually about what happens in our DSCs. To sometimes write a little report about your municipal activities, current state of affairs, or need of help and assistance. DSC News of, by and for everyone. (CC Blog/News would of course also be highly appreciated
So, take a look around, (not so much content by now..) feel at home, and lets start discussing.
