Created a Guilded server for chatting about ReactOS

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, drop it in here. (not to be used as a chat/nonsense section)

Created a Guilded server for chatting about ReactOS

Post by VanillaLilly »

Hey everyone! <3
I've been watching ReactOS videos on the community channel for quite some time now. I've also played with the OS in VirtualBox and I gotta say, it's pretty impressive. Now that introductions are out of the way, let me get to the point.
As a fun learning experience for both me and others, I created a Guilded server for chatting about ReactOS.
What does it offer? Main attractions are an event calendar, a voice chat channel, a channel where you can post pictures of ReactOS running on real hardware, each post having its own comment section, a forum section, and the ability to create threads if the chat gets too cluttered.
I'm still polishing things up, but if you want to join, or just want to see how it looks like without joining, here is the link: guilded.gg/ROS-Guilded

Hello.

Please note that we already have Mattermost chat (930 users) and Discord server (530 users), and also a bunch of Telegram groups per language.

I'm not sure it's good idea to spread the community along more chat platforms, but it's ok to experiment with things. ;)

Thanks for the reply, binarymaster <3. It is an honor to be talking with a dev (according to https://reactos.org/wiki/People_of_ReactOS).
I did see the Mattermost (at https://chat.reactos.org/login, I didn't try it yet though). And I did see the forum topic related to the Discord server. It is very inspiring to see an unofficial server grow so big over time. The reason I didn't go there is because I don't like Discord as a platform. Or, rather, I do like Discord as a platform, I love its features, but I don't like the people behind Discord. They did some very shady stuff quite some time ago, and it was a pretty big controversy (I'd rather not go into details right now). I do not blame people for using it though, and I wish the staff over at the Discord server the best of luck, from the bottom of my heart. I hope they continue to grow.

I do indeed think that it's not going to grow as much as the other platforms, it's probably not even possible. But that's okay. As you said, it's ok to experiment with things. If it would have just a few active-ish people, that would be more than what I could wish for. (´。• ᵕ •。`)
Thank you for your time.
