New Telegram Group for Public Transportation Topics

Would you support creating an international Telegram group for discussing Public Transportation topics?

I only have a look into D/A/CH Telegram group from time to time (german speaking countries) and do not really follow up those discussions. I don’t use PC for Telegram but only smart phone or tablet with (from my point of view) limited editing capabilities.

I prefer this community forum here.

Could we have such a community / sub forum here? Where would it be categorized? How would it be called? Are we enough supporting this idea?

I wouldn’t create a new category - those are for countries, not for topics.

Just add the ‘tag’ ‘public-transport’ to a new thread.

But it would be nice if certain initiatives and projects were to get their own sub-category. We could add another high-level category called “Projects” and each project/initiative could get their sub-group if needed. This way, it would be easy to “gather” people interested in a certain topic, much as we are gathering people speaking a common language…

But everything is fine that will stop people from using slack, telegram, or other tools that aren’t searchable and accessible for outsiders :confused:

Yeah, I’m trying to find more people with the same mapping interest and it’s been difficult.

+1 for being able to read contributions w/o the need of an app or need to login.
