Continuing the discussion from Where shall we chat?:

I want to set up a RocketChat instance for mage.party. It will be gaming-centric (that is what the “g” stands for, anyhow…).

I am looking forward to getting a chat bot with dice-rolling hooked up there, but the first thing I need is a domain name.

Imagine each of these in front of .mage.party:

  • chat
  • telepathy
  • play
  • orb
  • line (like a party line!)
  • something else

The routes in RC include channels, so something might be https://telepathy.mage.party/channel/the-world-unsung.

Thoughts?

tavern.mage.party ?

I also like orb

Tavern sounds like a channel, ie orb.mage.party/channel/tavern.

I like playing with the mage aspect (as is obvious from my initial list), but I wonder if a detached meaning would be helpful here. Such as comms.mage.party.

Taverns also have a drinking association, which I personally feel is exclusive, so I will just go ahead and emotionally veto that. :slight_smile:

We have talkgroup.xyz, and #mage-party, for long form, mailing-list style posting. Because I kinda associate this with “talking” I avoid using talk as a sub-domain.

Maybe we can just use chat.mage.party. Then folks will just say, “Meet up on magechat next Tuesday at UTC whenevs…”

Sometimes it feels a lot easier to not be clever… :crazy_face:

I’m tracking with you.

Comms or chat both work for me!

We set up an instance at https://chat.interi.org for now, since a branded chat instance isn’t that important to me at the moment. :slight_smile:

We are still setting it up, but sign up! We have auto-pruning channels and other fun stuff!
