Pouët should have a group chat.

category: general [glöplog]
then again maybe i'd better shut up because as a non-developer i can't really fathom how much time and effort it would take in reality so yeah

Let me elaborate a bit more on this: the idea for SceneID is to provide a set of services that are generally annoying to implement and can kickstart more projects, and/or aid existing projects (like Demozoo) with features where the annoying/intricate parts are taken care of: user registration is typically one of these, and PMs are another, and there's probably a few more that I didn't think of yet. The idea is always to look ahead and on a bigger picture rather than causing sites to reimplement the same feature a thousand times.

In terms of complication, I don't think it is, especially because 1) based on numbers Pouet is outnumbering other sites in SceneID users with an order of magnitude, so whatever Pouet does is pretty much the standard and 2) most of the same concerns of privacy/encryption/UX wouldn't go away if it would be a Pouet-local feature.

saying this since not many people fill their contact info on their Pouet bio.

Maybe an optional email field on the profile could make sense?

I tend to put my email in public in every forum/site, but I just realized it was not on pouet since, well, no really incentive to do so.
