[tor-relays] Relay operator section in our forum

Hello!

Some of you might already have seen that we have a shiny new forum
now.[1] And, of course, there is a part of it dedicated to providing
support for relay operators as well.[2] Check it out and feel free to
contribute!

Thanks,
Georg

[2] Relay Operator - Tor Project Forum

thank you for creating the Discourse forum.

Without the direct link it is a bit hard to find the relay section,
without reading all the smaller subsection names since it is a bit unexpected to find it under

"Support
User support for Tor in English. [...]"

if the "tor-talk" ML can be mapped to "General Discussion"
maybe it would be nice to have the "tor-relays" replacement on the same level?

nit: I would find "Relay Operations" more appealing than the current "Relay Operator" name (singular).

kind regards,
nusenu

thank you for creating the Discourse forum.

I've to admit I'm a bit surprised the torproject has chosen
the Discourse Saas option instead of running it on a system
where you control what logs are stored and for how long.

Are there plans to make it available as an onion service?

Following Discourse recommendation, we're starting with a few
categories and subcategories. Adding too many categories before using
would look like a complex maze and making hard to people ask a simple
question.

This week we're soft releasing the forum[1] and adjusting some settings.
We're officially announcing the Tor Forum next week on our Blog.

if the "tor-talk" ML can be mapped to "General Discussion"
maybe it would be nice to have the "tor-relays" replacement on the same level?

If people here enjoy the Tor Forum, we can add a new entire 'Relay
Community' category and more subcategories (Good/Bad ISPs, Bridges[2],
Exits, meetups...). Discourse is very flexible and we can move old topics to new
categories and so on.

nit: I would find "Relay Operations" more appealing than the current "Relay Operator" name (singular).

Please create a new topic here :wink:

At the moment, we've prefered to follow other projects path[1] and use
Discourse free hosting for open source projects.

The new forum works fine with Tor Browser and/or you can enable the 'mailing list
mode'[2] and never interact with Discourse web interface.

Are there plans to make it available as an onion service?

Yes, but not at the moment.

Discourse was contacted, and as it looks right now, we are not getting
an onion service.

I looked around a little, but I can't find where there is anything on
exactly why it isn't self hosted.
