One thing I always feel this forum is missing is a section for work in progress projects, even if they never end up anywhere. Right now people are shy about their projects, so the only way you learn about them is by finding mentions of them such as these, when they're released on DUB repository or when someone makes an announcement post on Announce. The problem with Announce is that people only use it for official releases - and that's good - but we're missing out on all the work in progress buzz.

I always reference the old dsource forums - http://dsource.org/forums/ - click at that, it's a graveyard now, but imagine going there back then - so exciting! So many fun projects. It's fun to scroll around and see what people are doing and maybe even join them in their effort. Most of these projects never got out of wip stages and got abandoned later on, but they were certainly interesting. Even now, many years later I like to browse them to look for inspiration and see what people were after.

I'd really love a "Projects" section here on these forums, with perhaps sections for "WIP" and "Releases", so that people can post all the cool stuff they are working on for others to see.

Yeah, I often want a place to just gab. I kinda do in my blog, but that's more often something that is more finished since I feel like a blog post needs to have some more length to it: http://dpldocs.info/this-week-in-d/Blog.html

I tweet from time to time but it is hard to fit code examples in there, like this one last night
https://twitter.com/adamdruppe/status/1300914727627960320

yeah that took some trimming.

of course if you are on the #d IRC channel you can often find me basically talking to myself as I think out loud about whatever code I'm doing at the moment... lol

But what I think would be really cool though is like an internal twitter... no size limit but also a culture that there's no expectation for length and quality. Just casual "think out loud" or in-progress project updates that can split into chat.

I could write that in a few hours. then blog about it omg. but the hard part isn't technical, it is just getting people to actually use it.

I'd also really like this to be a thing.

Mastodon instance? But if you do create an ad-hoc service, I'd very much use it if you didn't necessitate registration with an email.

I second a Mastodon instance. Would be great for short thoughts.

Currently we have discord, slack, IRC, Facebook, Official Forum and IRC with community members in them. I don't think there's shortage of places to interact with community members for feedback on such ideas.

I'm on the discord (ran by Wild), Facebook, IRC (rarely cus it takes me back) and of course the forum.

The slack I have no ideas how people get in. I know there's a number of members in there too.

Unfortunately you need to be invited. Anyone can do it, if you're interested. We just need an email address.

I forget to mention that I've already gotten an invite and I'm now in.
