Putting G+ to Death

It's here. The death of Google+. Long prophesied.
To jump on the back of Chris' post here, even though I doubt I've got as much reach as him, here's some options.


We've got an OSR Discord. It's pretty chill.


There's a possibility that the scene gets more blog-heavy again, just like old times!
There's an OSR Blog Roll building up in Sheets, add your blog there. Contrary to what you might believe, the OSR blog scene is still pumping and there are new authors all the time, so get on it!
My blog roll on the sidebar there has a bunch of blogs, but it's hard to keep up!


There's a possibility that there will be a migration towards MeWe, another obscure social platform nobody cares about.
Is another obscure site the real way forward? Should we be worried about the weird free speech bent to the site? So many questions!
Anyway, I'm there as James Young for now.


A number of people are on Facebook, but the signal-to-noise ratio in facebook groups is fucking abysmal. Either way, I'm James Young there too.


  1. Facebook is a stagnant platform, and Zucc is not known for his discernment when it comes to not banning people. I say we colonize some other social media site to perpetuate our ideas, and MeWe might be a possible option for that. Or we could find an alt-tech site that isn't to big such as Minds.com or Gab, though I hear that the latter is kind of a madhouse.

    1. MeWe looks shit, honestly.
      Pundit wants to go to Minds so that's a no-go.
      I've never even heard of Gab!

      The biggest hit has been the surge in Discord numbers, so I'm not sure where we go from here really.

    2. There are a number of us over using Diaspora. Many OSR plussers are at:


      It is decentralized and Diaspora has been around for a looooooong time.
