Matrix chat server is up! Account registration is OPEN at matrix.hackers.town
Join up, make rooms, and idle with us! Encrypted group chat is a click away. Full list of Matrix clients over at: https://matrix.org/clients/
@zpojqwfejwfhiunz I can NOT say this has been the least troublesome signup; I mean ... wtf, google recaptcha?
On a hackers.town instance?
(I have a DISTINCT feeling this cross-domain signup is not the way to go. Among the "this isn't right" parts: the xhr request to "matrix-" (no domain) - the "are you sure you don't want to use an email" with no possibility of entering an email, and ... well attempt #10 now to get thru all the hoops to turn google back on so I can use recaptcha.
I _seriously_ do not see what the disadvantages of irc are, given that I have to trust Google to sign up for this.
Warning: MORE INCOMING LOUD COMPLAINTS
SOMETHING is wrong.
I just went looking for a signup page on matrix.hackers.town, but it just is the page for the "the software works, now you need a client." Which is _understandable_ in that it's a newly installed instance (and I fully expect will be probed for faults in the default install) but -
Now, it is true I could very possibly join using a non-hackers.town matrix account, but the captcha appeared while following the instructions to sign up for a hackers.town matrix account via the riot.im link in the original post.
With ublock origin on "yeah no fscking tracking/ads" and umatrix on "block and warn on most everything" of course.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
