Advertise ownCloud Central to #owncloud IRC users


#1

A lot of people who show up on IRC are not being helped because IRC is a poor form of helping people. The hope usually is that there is a quick solution, but usually there isn't, mostly because of poor initial details and few people with time to ask for more.

the Help category in ownCloud Central seems to be a much better fit, but how do we advertise this best? Just change the topic to something like "Issues are usually resolved fastest through a post at ownCloud Central?" (with a link).

I couldn't even do that; I tried yesterday in the #owncloud-android channel, but I don't have the proper permissions, and don't know who created the channel.

Anybody here knows better?


#3

Same here with #owncloud - who actually is operator?


#4

I think @danimo should have permissions


#5

If IRC is interesting for more users and too little help is provided, we could perhaps organize meetups? if there is actually need for that on top of the forum.
