if you want to chat with raddlers come join the https://ni.hil.ist mastodon instance, there's cool people on there.

yeah it's not end to end encrypted but it's not like you're going to go on Matrix and talk about your plan to blow up the White House.

U can always make a different mastadon account and just follow ni hil.ist users. It doesn't really matter

yes but it's not the raddle chat anymore. it's the red frog chat. because ziq felt that it was being used to attack them and didn't want it to be official anymore.

also it's been dead for months and no one talks there anymore.

I wouldnt mind if someone made another unofficial one always looking for small talk.

Dont know how others feel about it given some of the history LL and wednesday mentioned. But maybe have some strict rules on not talking about raddle users or smth.

I don't get the appeal at all. Just make a thread and then talk in it. Seems silly to go on a different platform just so you don't have to make a weekly group chat thread.

i mean i didn't do this because on raddle everything you do is publishing, like it's putting something out there for people to read.

i know some people have their own forums here but i assume everyone reads raddle via the new posts / all forums setting.

on other platform it's less intimidating, you can just say stuff and people can choose to engage, you're not starting from a position of 'hey i thought this take was so good i came here to publish it'.

you know?

I was suggesting just have a weekly thread where you post comments. Then it's not a post for every small idea.

Make a forum /f/group chat. Then someone makes post group chat 1. Then if you just wanna chat post a comment. People either check the post or just see it by browsing recent comments.

Then u keep the whole userbase.

feels snappier. dont have to refresh the page every five seconds to see if people respond. feels less formal in general like I dont have to come up with a title for things I want to talk about. no upvotes/downvotes

edit: the up/downvotes is a big thing. Like it feels awkward to talk about how I went to the grocery store today and then having people publically voting on how cool/uncool me buying asparagus is or smth. Like even though its all imaginary internet points it feels like there are stakes or smth.

Let me guess:

  • Yes, Matrix exists
  • No, the raddle chat server/group does not.

No, it exists. Ziq Got mad at whoever was running it. Because ziq didn't want it associated with their name. Which I thought was reasonable given the circumstances. So there is a matrix with some raddlers. Tho I don't use it or know the link. Plus it sucked and no interesting convos were on it.

So there was a raddle matrix but it's rebranded now. Same matrix different name.
