Hey Martin, ever think of setting up a Discord server? It allows real-time chat and interaction. A lot of companies are starting to use that instead of forums for direct communication and real-time troubleshooting with support, etc. It's not as black and white as here, or as searchable, but It's what people seem to be going towards. Just a thought.

This brings up a good question: how many people enjoy talking in real-time?

If the telephone part of an iPhone was removed, I wouldn’t even notice. Anything I have to say only takes a minute, and I’m only interested for a minute in what other people have to say. My wife can yak for hours with her friends & they don’t say a damn thing, and she never watches YouTube videos on how to repair an old watch, for example.

It also offers real-time conversations, honestly, it's better than a forum in that matter, you are able to see how people think in real-time as well. Plus issues can be resolved in real-time instead of dealing with the forum bullshit upon where a lot of time can pass and people don't clarify until hours later.

I got one set up for my book when and if becomes popular. I'm also using it to publish maps and other materials for the "geeks" if there will be any... plus if the press gets wind of it I'll also have press release media for them as well... It's really a modern-day forum with very few downsides. except perhaps to really get any advantage of it, the price goes up depending on the side of the popularity of the discord server...

Which at this point in time, mine is free :P

Real-time & links: how is this different than Twitter? And does everything just scroll away so that no real conversation with people who aren't there can happen?

Yes. That is it. It's twitter without follow and algos. But with voice. There are different "rooms" you can choose between.

Voice rooms snd and chat rooms.
