Invitation to FeministWiki project

Post by SocJusWiz » Sat Sep 22, 2018 1:12 pm

As it says in my forum signature, I'd like to invite all radfems and radfem supporters here to the FeministWiki project.

The project is not only a wiki, but also includes a chat server (XMPP/Jabber), a forum, email, file storage, and more. With your membership credentials you can use all services. Essentially, the FeministWiki project offers a "digital home" for the global (radical) feminist community.

Contact me here, or at twitter.com/@socjuswiz (quickest option), or at admin (at) feministwiki.org to get your membership.

Members are added manually by existing members to prevent abuse, but if you tell me you're from the Sinfest forum then I won't scrutinize you much, maybe just write a sentence or two about what feminism means to you. :-)

Full disclosure: Like Tat, I'm a male radfem supporter. In context of the FeministWiki project, I'm the "technician" but not any kind of community leader, since any feminist community ought to be led by women.
All radfems cordially invited to the FeministWiki!

How's that project coming out? Just curious \o
Call me Celina. I've been a fan since 2007, and tried to enjoy the old forum since then too. Now that we have a forum for radfems/people who actually enjoy the comic! Hell yes! I'll call up all my buddies here!! Armageddon is coming.

Wow, I haven't come back here since October... Embarrassing.

The project is in a state where every now and then someone says "great project, I'd like to join!" and then they get an account but don't actually use it. :-P

I think the problem is that everything's still empty. Someone needs to "bootstrap" a community around it. The forums are empty, the wiki doesn't have any entries, nobody uses the chat, etc. So when someone new arrives, I guess they don't have any motivation to start using it.

There are now two women though (one my aunt, one I met through social media) who want to spread the word and see if they can popularize the platform a bit in their circles. I think slowly something will come out of it.

I also need to work more on the technical side of things. People might want a Twitter-equivalent, because lots of rad feminists are using Twitter and might be accustomed to the way it works. (Many quick small messages, something between a forum and a chat...)

Edit:

By the way, there are now also two radfem forums created by radfems themselves, which seem to be more successful:

https://genderhammer.com/

https://forums.roomsofourown.org/

Since I'm male I try to stay "in my line" so to say and keep to technical stuff, so it's natural that these sites would be more successful in building a community. I say, the more the merrier!

Idk if I'd recommend genderhammer, they seem to have a lot of rampant transphobic views, which leads to a fairly toxic forum.
