I’ve been working on the next iteration of hyperlink.academy, and thinking about it’s relationship to this forum. This forum provided a much needed social space for the “school”, acting as an incubator for adventures, and a documentation site even.
So, let’s merge the two! In practice, this would change three things:
- Instead of visiting fns.fathom.network you’ll be visiting forum.hyperlink.academy. The old domain will redirect to the new one.
- Instead of logging on through Discourse, forum.hyperlink.academy will use a Single Sign-On backed by accounts on hyperink.academy
- As a result of 2. you’ll have to sign up for an account on hyperlink.academy, and must use the same email as you use for your FNS account.
For those of you who don’t know (which is probably all of you lol) the name FNS is a recursive acronym/GNU joke, standing for FNS Not a Sschool. It’s a little bit in-joke-y but I liked it! However, I think hyperlink.academy is way easier to understand, requiring significantly less explanation.
This space belongs to everyone participating here as much as me, so if you have worries about this, let’s talk about it!
While it does require creating yet another account, I think having authentication we control would let us do some really cool things! Specifically: better infrastructure around joining and running courses/adventures and linking to other tools (a hyperlink.academy git forge for example, or an ebook library)
The plan would be to do this move sometime in the next two weeks (given the current development trajectory on Hyperlink V2 holds, which is to be fair, a risky assumption)
