IRC, Discord, Reddit, Twitter, and NNTP

You have links for IRC, Discord, Reddit, and Twitter. Why not also add NNTP? Some of us are using NNTP, and I might be willing to add a newsgroup to my own NNTP server for All The Tropes, although it would probably be better to be hosted by Miraheze instead, I think.

(Also, why does it specify "false" as the title for the new topic by default?)

The "false" thing seems to be a backend glitch.

As for that newsgroup, link me to this when it's ready and let's see where it goes if you decide to donate your bandwidth towards that end.. If it's a good place for tropers to gather, I'll be willing to put adding it our social networks up for consideration.

Our Discord is run by fans with our blessing, don't see why a fan newsgroup wouldn't be worth considering.

My newsgroup-fu is really weak, can't even remember the last time I looked at one, either of you gentlemen want to give this a whirl? Have to admit I have very little idea what I doing despite using the Pan newsgroup reader.

I haven't made use of UseNet is at least a decade, because my current ISP doesn't host it, and I didn't want to pay for access through a web-based provider. In any case I won't have time to look at this until I get off work, and not even right away then.

Fair enough, I have no objection.

The only reason I could see for keeping it is that it highlights new pages created by tropers who are not yet autopatrolled - but we can get the same information from the Recent Changes page.

No objections to either deleting or keeping the section.

No further comments either way after two more days; I'm making the change.

There are no older topics
