Yeah, I can't wait to see how f/readingclub develops! In terms of ideas, I guess I was thinking anything from petty things like a movie night to perhaps, as 4chan-y as it sounds, raid far-right subreddits. I've often noticed that communities develop a significant amount after performing raids and such. I don't really know, to be honest. I'm pulling ideas out of my ass really.

A bunch of people have wanted to make collective actions like brigading forums, it hasn't ever really happened in a coordinated way

It may still!

I'm not sure how a movie night would work on the internet

RE: Movie night. There are loads of websites that can facilitate them. The most popular one I've seen is https://rabb.it

RE: Brigading Yeah, I can see why. Perhaps I'll try and organise one, and see how effective it is.

I wonder if there are libre software versions of rabb.it

I'm sure there is, I'll take a look! though Rabb.it is certainly the best one, though it is proprietary.

syncplay and cytu.be come to mind

idk if cytube is veritably libre. i don't really understand license stuff very well. here's the cytube github, license at the bottom. also dunno how it'd work for people who only use tor browser

also there's the issue of media providers for cytube, but they have a pretty big list, including direct links to specific types of video files (coin shred might be able to host? dunno if it handles video files)

syncplay looks like it'd be good, but it doesn't seem to have an easy means proxying through tor, and that might also slow it down more than it would cytube, especially with multiple people on the syncplay server... although i don't really know what i'm talking about tbh

i probably also don't know about some other decent options
