    Hello! I'm new to XMPP. I'm not sure from the page https://xmpp.org/community/chat.html (or otherwise at all) is this the chat for simple users?

  30. Someone

    Besides chat and mailing lists, does XMPP have a more modern forum? Like Kontalk, Signal Users...

    Licaon_Kter, Link Mauve: I realized XMPP is a relatively small community. Basically I'm looking for where the main XMPP user discussion takes place, wish some key developers participating, too.

  165. Someone

    I like the forum format. So I wonder if XMPP has something like https://forum.kontalk.org/ or https://community.signalusers.org/. If not why not?

  181. Menel has joined

  182. Someone

    So, what is the main user channel? The main website, XMPP.org doesn't suggest any. Or I'm missing something.

  183. Someone

    As my above examples of the Kontalk and Signal forums suggest, forums are very well 2010s. :)

  184. jonas’

    there is no main user channel.

  185. jonas’

    should there be one?

  186. jonas’

    maybe there should

  187. SouL

    it depends on main

  188. drops has joined

  189. SouL

    It is easy to have a main channel for an application :)

  190. jonas’

    I’d base it on language instead of application actually

  191. jonas’

    for users

  192. Someone

    Maybe there should. :)

  193. Jonny has joined

  194. multixmp has joined

  195. Someone

    I mean there is a main communications channel to use for users of most open source projects. Such as FreeBSD, Ubuntu, Gnome, Swift language, or whatever.

  196. Martin has left

  197. Martin has joined

  198. SouL

    Yeah, those are projects

  199. SouL

    So you can join Gajim's room, or whatever

  200. SouL

    This jdev@muc.xmpp.org is for development

  201. Someone

    Wait! What's your definition of a project? To which XMPP itself may not fit?

  202. Someone

    Weare on operators@

  203. Someone

    Anyway, I suggest there to be a main users@muc.xmpp.org or something. No surprise XMPP didn't get mass adoption in the last 20 years. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  204. SouL

    Someone, yes, this place is for people managing an XMPP service (aka Server admins and the like)

  205. WebPigeon has joined

  206. SouL

    Someone, users usually want to ask and talk about the client they are using

  207. Someone

    I'm not.

  208. Someone

    I'm useing whatever web client and it's fine. I want to ask about XMPP itself.

  209. SouL


  210. multixmp has left

  211. reset has left

  212. pep.

    "No surprise XMPP didn't get mass adoption in the last 20 years.", everybody's got a different reason for that, or why other projects have been successful :)

  213. reset has joined

  214. drops has left

  215. Someone

    My fist guess is leadership decisions, scrtucture, or thinking at the head definitely has to be at lest part of the reason.

  216. pep.

    Someone, there is xsf@muc.xmpp.org for protocol talk, jdev@muc.xmpp.org for dev talk around XMPP. There is jabber@conference.jabber.org for users of XMPP, but lately we've been moving off that service because it's not really well maintained. Maybe there can be an equivalent on muc.xmpp.org

  217. Someone

    And I can't type, sorry.

  218. pep.

    Someone, also different goals. XMPP is a protocol. Adoption for XMPP means in projects, not especially by users themselves

  219. WebPigeon has left

  220. Someone

    Similarly many are interested in email technology, not just the different email clients and services offered out there...

  221. Someone

    "Someone, there is xsf@muc.xmpp.org for protocol talk, jdev@muc.xmpp.org for dev talk around XMPP. There is jabber@conference.jabber.org for users of XMPP, but lately we've been moving off that service because it's not really well maintained. Maybe there can be an equivalent on muc.xmpp.org" Okay. So which one to join as a user? If not now, maybe in the distant or not so distant future? :)

  222. Licaon_Kter

    Someone: there is no central xmpp...users are of clients...clients devs have their rooms...

  223. SouL

    Someone, what do you mean by user?

  224. SouL

    What kind of things you want to discuss?

  225. SouL

    As a user

  226. pep.

    As a developer (user of XMPP), you might want to join xsf@muc.xmpp.org and jdev@muc.xmpp.org :)

  227. Someone

    What do I want to discus as a user? I've read in the Matrix.org FAQ that we didn't end up as a society putting our XMPP handles on our business cards. As most people have no clue what it is. This has been the case of XMPP's last 20 years. What's your vision for the next 20 years of XMPP?

  228. WebPigeon has joined

  229. Someone

    "As a developer (user of XMPP), you might want to join xsf@muc.xmpp.org and jdev@muc.xmpp.org :)" Which ONE, as a user? You already confuse me. :(

  230. debacle has left

  231. pep.

    You're already not on the right channel anyway, not sure how you ended up here. And if you're an end-user, you might want to join the channel of your client

  232. pep.

    Matrix only conviently mixes all about protocol, implementations, etc., I don't think that's a good practice to follow (the one "good" thing is that they can show numbers)

  233. SouL

    Someone, xsf@muc.xmpp.org

  234. Someone

    How I ended up here? I went to XMPP.org And simply tried to find out which might be XMPP's main user channel. As most other 99% of open source projects have one.

  235. Licaon_Kter

    Someone: you are here to repeat "20 years" and talk about Matrix? Why?

  236. pep.

    Is there even one channel that everybody joins on Discord, Slack, Telegram, WhatsApp? I'm curious now

  237. Someone

    "I'm useing whatever web client and it's fine. I want to ask about XMPP itself." It has zero things to do with my client.

  238. pep.

    oh ok, I missed that sentence

  239. pep.

    Then join xmpp:xsf@muc.xmpp.org?join

  240. Licaon_Kter

    Someone: there is none....users talk between themselves not navelgaze about making a room full of users to attract VC funds based on the member numbers

  241. Someone

    "Someone: you are here to repeat "20 years" and talk about Matrix? Why?" I mentioned Matrix once. Their FAQ, and their mention of XMPP in this context made me thinking. I thought this is an excellent question to ask the XMPP folks.

  242. Someone

    pep, thanks!

  243. multixmp has joined

  244. pep.

    Someone, you can also do that from the web client, should be able to

  245. Someone

    I didn't talk, or imply anything about VC funds...

  246. pep.

    no but you mentioned Matrix a few times, that's enough to trigger some :)

  247. pep_ has joined

  248. pep_ has left

  249. Someone

    I've said I've only mentioned Matrix ONCE. And heck, I though that would be a fair comparison.

  250. SouL

    It depends

  251. SouL

    But don't bother about that, just join that one and ask

  252. Someone

    OK, I got your recommendation of xsf@ as my channel... I can leave you right here... or we can got to some conclusion of this chat. :)

  253. SouL

    Well, you will se almost the same people you see here, but there :P

  254. SouL

    See you there :D

  255. SouL


  256. Someone

    OK, see you, but tomorrow! I have other things to do as well...

  274. Ge0rG

    Link Mauve: and then you are surprised why nobody messages you? ;)

  275. Link Mauve

    No, I’m actually getting too many messages at times.

  276. Ge0rG

    From the Russians, selling drugs and moneys?

  277. Link Mauve

    No, they stopped messaging me once I started running mod_firewall. :(

    I'm pretty sure I know where that person came from. I told them if they wanted to put theirs xmpp address on their business card to go ahead. I'm not sure why that's some kind of pro for matrix? I haven't seen business cards with matrix addresses either. I guess it's a failed project then!
