Wanted to say thank you to NRG & Betacode, appreciate all you guys are doing, particularly in challenging times like this. Glad to be back brothers and sisters!
Here's what I want to know. What do we want?
I like the idea of separation of stuff, although so many of the things we talk about syncs in circles. Maybe:
- Social - members meet, music/video sharing, coffee lounge
- Private (was thinking about certain things we talk about attracting attention - IE the h3lm3r flash guys) with some kind of vetting process by Nick and Grass and others?
Would it be possible to create some kind of structure for some members to create a backup copy of the site? I know we could use a site scrapper tool, and that would be good to for someone to make backup copies periodically, but is relatively slow and somewhat hard to share. I could investigate spinning up a server and syncing the DB, to help should things go down again as well? IE a mirrored copy of the site in the event of another problem?
On design, the only request/suggestion is whatever theme we default to in the future be very mobile friendly. I typically use the site on my phone and making that easiest will help a lot.
Chat - I think having some kind of chat would be very helpful. I've done a lot of privacy research and depending on everyone's needs have some suggestions:
Signal - very secure (a bit of a pain in the ass)
Telegram - not as secure, but very simple to use - but is not as secure as signal.
Unfortunately both of these are app based though. One tool I'm checking out is:
Cyph.com - seems very strong (secure) and it's web based.
Again, thank you guys.
