How long is talk.tw gonna be experimental?

I think the experiment has been successful. I am inclined to remove the word “experimental” from the GG header notice, so it would be listed as simply another “alternative”, just like the current https://twitter.com/TiddlyWiki and https://www.reddit.com/r/TiddlyWiki5/ links.

And what’s it take to prove it is better?

Although many (but not all) have said they now prefer https://talk.tiddlywiki.org/, “better” is a matter of personal opinion. I don’t think it needs to be “proven” to be “better”… it’s merely another site for TiddlyWiki info.

And what if it is better, are we gonna shut this here down then?

IF the frequency of posts here drops to near zero, then I would be inclined to change the GG header to indicate that the discussion has “migrated” to https://talk.tiddlywiki.org/, just as we have done with the https://groups.google.com/g/tiddlywikidev discussion, which was moved to https://github.com/Jermolene/TiddlyWiki5/discussions and has had a total of 5 GoogleGroup posts since mid-June 2021. In any case, I don’t think we should ever completely “shut this here down”, as there are many links external to this group. As such, it will always be at least a historical resource for older discussion threads.

I think “experimental” can be removed now.

It is all about perspective. I don’t find TiddlyTalk better at all. It is a challenge to use the thing.

If want to say it is better for the great majority, fine. But a blanket statement that it is better, that’s it, that’s all, for everybody is a load of poop.

I plan to update tiddlywiki.com to link to talk.tiddlywiki.org shortly, and I think that will be the point where it stops being an experiment.

And I meant to add that as Eric suggests, I intend to leave the Google Group open, with both forums being used for official postings for the moment.
