Hey @Ohm @RedFred7 I am conscious of an Elixir thread being so dominant on MetaRuby (as MetaRuby itself is pretty new) so am thinking about putting up an Elixir forum for us like this one
I think it will allow for more topics to be covered and over several threads instead of being lumped into just one. It may also help us make new Elixir friends. I guess I don’t really want to put people off MetaRuby by them thinking this place is talking more about Elixir, haha (but at the same time don’t want us to stop talking about it).
I’m quite happy for the forum to be used by people like us (just getting into Elixir) or the entire Elixir community (if they want to). I think it could be fun, extremely interesting and also very useful for those interested in Elixir (especially those starting out).
I know they have Google mailing list/group and chat room, but they have lots of important people on that mailing list (Jose, Joe Armstrong etc) and I think many of our threads will be light-hearted and not of interest to them. The chat room is great, but it’s temporary - we can’t really help others by our discussions as they are not persisted (so can’t have threads of interest, stickies, etc). Overall I think a forum would be great - for us and the Elixir community in general
What do you think?
