Re: Introducing Yade discord beta



I think that's a great idea, thank you Robert. I have not dared yet going through the creation of a new account (on Discord) though, would it be possible by chance to have something merged with Gitlab (and our accounts therein) ?

There seems to be like Gitlab-Slack or Gitlab-Mattermost [*] things. The latter seems to be available with our current Gitlab sign-in [**].

Hey Yade devs,

A few of us were discussing the *idea of encouraging more collaboration* among Yade devs and the idea came up to create a central server for chatting about various topics and exchanging ideas.

Discord seems to be a good candidate for this since we can organize the server into various topics (i.e. resources, polyhedra, fluid-couplings, geomechanics etc.) Also, we don't need to install any software to join and chat (there is a browser-based version)

*The goal of this discord* server is to bring yade devs and users together in one place to chat freely and openly. If we are lucky, some collaborations will pop up, if we are unlucky it may just become a landing spot for new users.

Before we open it to the public, I'd like to invite you yade devs to the "beta" server.  Come on over and say hey, start testing it out, and provide feedback. If you have any suggestions for the layout/organization, please let me know, and I will make sure to incorporate your recommendations.

So, see you over at the yade discord server:
