Hi and welcome here!

I agree, a new subforum about general discussions would be useful, I have created it and moved here this thread. Please let me know if you think we'd need any additional subforum here.

Good idea about the chat channel. I have tried to join using the above link, though it always returns a "Failed to join room - You are not invited to this room." error, both as an unregistered and as a registered user. I have also tried to search for the planetgemini channel in the directory, but I could not find it. Has it maybe been set as a private channel?

Thanks! hmmm that's strange. i use this link format for other channels to without a problem. Maybe it's a browser problem? The Channelname on matrix uses this structure: #channel:server so its: #planetgemini:matrix.org

I'm using the latest Firefox Quantum 57.0.1 on my laptop running Linux Mint. I have done a bit of research, and according to this post:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/sl...org-4175604896/

the problem might be the "Anyone who knows the room's link, including guests" setting...

No worries  It works now, glad that the problem was solved. I'll be there online as much as possible, I have also added the link to the channel on my signature, and if you agree I'd add it to the links bar at the top of the forum, too. Let's see if anybody else joins us!

I have now mentioned the channel on both the Facebook Gemini page and the Indiegogo project's page, let's see if more people will now join.

I can recommend the use of the native matrix clients: https://matrix.org/docs/projects/try-matrix-now.html
