Pouët should have a group chat.

category: general [glöplog]
then again maybe i'd better shut up because as a non-developer i can't really fathom how much time and effort it would take in reality so yeah

Let me elaborate a bit more on this: the idea for SceneID is to provide a set of services that are generally annoying to implement and can kickstart more projects, and/or aid existing projects (like Demozoo) with features where the annoying/intricate parts are taken care of: user registration is typically one of these, and PMs are another, and there's probably a few more that I didn't think of yet. The idea is always to look ahead and on a bigger picture rather than causing sites to reimplement the same feature a thousand times.

In terms of complication, I don't think it is, especially because 1) based on numbers Pouet is outnumbering other sites in SceneID users with an order of magnitude, so whatever Pouet does is pretty much the standard and 2) most of the same concerns of privacy/encryption/UX wouldn't go away if it would be a Pouet-local feature.

saying this since not many people fill their contact info on their Pouet bio.

Indeed.
Maybe an optional email field on the profile could make sense?

I tend to put my email in public in every forum/site, but I just realized it was not on pouet since, well, no really incentive to do so.

i'd be comfortable with that ONLY IF that field would be available to logged-in users only :)

FYI a demoscene slack was created in early 2016.
~80 people are on it but it's a ghost town.
I guess sceners prefer IRC in the end.

Also there are probably a few dozens of private slack/discord of groups out there.

I'm surprised there is no more interest in a public Discord.
Well let's see actually: DEMOSCENE DISCORD

First I ever heard of either, tbh. I'm guessing that widespread adoption would have to be pushed by a significant body in the scene. Off the top of my head I can only really think of Pouet or Revision that would fit the "significant enough" category.

I think a demoscene slack would be awesome, amongst other things because I can't be fucked with connecting to irc on my phone. I have tried a couple of times, but it's just too much hassle. Also, I want my notifications, simple sharing from other apps, embedded media, sharing files (no, DCC is not a usable alternative) and so on.
Slack basically provides every irc feature I care about, on every platform I use.

And even though a lot of people is still on irc, the ratio of "there, but idle" clients are ever increasing (including mine).

Actually some additional optional contact information fields would help already, no?

After all those years of slack and discord usage, i switched back to mibbit irc and guess what these casual talks are best.

Let's set up a Second Life/Singularity cyberspace thingy so we can finally spend our glöps on virtual furniture!

There's also always the option of Telegram, of course.
