I know that some people only wants to "test" or learn some linux commands. Also there are people that prefer socialize using bbj as an example or mail, but what do you expect here? Whats your idea of the perfect "tildeverse"? or what do you think that tildeverse will/should be in the future? (Sorry, there are a lot of questions :) )

>>OP imho my idea for tildeverse would be a loosely-interconnected federation of mostly-independent systems, each with its own community and culture, that are built around old-skool, 'traditional' technology like IRC or BBSes (or even NNTP, why not?) personally I'd like to be able to chat IRC-style with people from other tildes, or discuss together in some sort of federated BBS. in any case, the old-school feel should be preserved, as a necessary 'barrier-of-entry' (and with that I don't mean elitism or something, but a 'speed control' of sorts in adopting new users. imho fast influxes of new people in any community without any time for them to acclimate tend to ruin the communities long-term, like usenet's eternal september). taking the time to learn the technology forces the new users to 'slow down' and acclimate.

>>2 IMO a tilde should be a learning community in a remote, cooperative, minimalistic and non-commercial computer environment.

>>OP I was drawn in by the community aspect. I grew up with BBSes, and ran my own dial-up for a while. It was a very small community of a few local friends. My high school had a BBS where I met friends I wouldn't have ever spoken to in the halls. I hadn't been on a shared *nix system and thought it would be neat to be able to type 'who' and actually see other people in the system with me. I've found a great community here. A diverse group of people all over, many of whom have been helpful. I've already learned a lot in just a couple of days, and I thought I had a pretty good handle on Linux. :) -Brad
