GitHub isn’t really a place for free-flowing discussions though. It’s more for “to the point” type issues. Using GitHub like a forum, is like using a Mini to plough a field.
Discord is the opposite. It’s full of crap, which makes it impossible, or uncomfortable, to use for serious topics.
So I do think this is a the right place for more serious dev type discussions. But like anything, it’ll only work if people use it. If they do, it’ll be great.
The down side is, the UI and UX with this platform, isn’t as flush as other platforms, but it’s also not bad. And I do like the built in gamification.
And while we’re on the subject of gamification. How customisable is it? Or is it set in stone?
