I had an idea that I ran by SkullTraill and he recommended that we do an interest check first. Wondering what everyone's thoughts are on WF hosting weekly/bi-weekly talks on Discord. Some ideas I had on managing this if we move forward:
  • The talks are not a replacement for WF forums threads. They are workshops meant to provide an additional layer of conversation and knowledge. Notes on each talk will be taken and posted as a thread for further discussion on the site for those that aren't able to listen to it live.
  • We could start a thread where members sign up for slots by presenting their topic and outline.
  • Talks could be split out into two sections. The topic itself and then Q & A about the topic. A time limit should probably be applied too.
  • Talks would be moderated. Any trolling, unacceptable behavior, or straying off topic will be dealt with accordingly.
  • Supplemental material could be provided as links. Or since Discord has screen-sharing capabilities, a slideshow can be created to help attendants follow along.
This is just an idea right now and the community is still growing. But if enough people were interested and we kept at it, I think it would be something neat to look forward to and mingle with the community more. I'm sure the first few talks will have few attendees, but as long as we stick to it and work hard to provide good content, it can grow to something bigger.

Thoughts?
