Today the .co domain launches and I'm proud to be a part of the .co Founders program and have one of the founding Websites.
It's duck.co, which is the new home of the DuckDuckGo Community forum (previously ideas.duckduckgo.com).
I have high hopes for this site, and wish it to become a real community centered around DDG. I've initially created four top-level forums:
- DuckDuckGo Feedback - report problems and give suggestions
- Spreading DuckDuckGo - share ideas and experiences.
- DuckDuckGo Code - discuss DDG open source code & APIs. Over the next year, I hope to put a lot more effort into this area.
- DuckDuckGo for Educators - use of DDG in the educator/library community in particular.
I of course will be actively participating in all of these forums and would welcome and greatly appreciate your participation as well.
The forum is run by Zoho discussions. I have it set up so you can post anonymously, though if you do sign in you'll be able to more easily follow topics & forums (by email).
You might also be wondering why I switched forum providers. Long story short, Slinkset (the previous provider) was down about 50% of the time and really slow when it was up. That is, it was essentially unusable.
