Brand-new Discourse video! 🥳

We are thrilled to present our latest Discourse brand video! :tada: :slight_smile:

I want to wax lyrical about how magnificent it is and how it represents yet another great chapter in our mission to foster meaningful conversations and help build ever more vibrant communities, but I’m slightly worried you’ll just take my word for it and not watch it… :slight_smile:

So, without further ado, I present to you… :drum: :drum: :drum:

We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it. :slight_smile: :discourse:

This video represents what Discourse is in its true potential. Discourse is a home for your community. Here, all your data is safe and secure. You also have control over everything.

Nice video! It almost makes we want to use Discourse immediately… oh wait - I already do :discourse:

I like the animations :heart_eyes:.

I noticed the word “forum” isn’t used at all. Is that intentional? Not making a judgment either way, just thought that was interesting.

Good point. I suppose that’s is because the word “forum” gives connotations to old style forums which obviously doesn’t go well with Discourses’ view on how a a modern online community should look/work.

Hopefully it will make everyone else think the same too. :crossed_fingers: :slight_smile:

Posting it on here is a little ‘preaching to the converted’, but I thought you all may want a peek. :slight_smile:

I think ‘community’ sounds more open and encompassing too. Like you’re emphasising the people rather than the medium.

Surprised and pleased to hear an English accent - a Midlands accent, if I’m not mistaken!

There’s a whole bundle of UK cultural references to be unpacked in here! (Perhaps start here)

Hey Colleagues from the (ex-european :smiling_face_with_tear:) island,

is there a chance to get that video translated? If the data file is available with a separate audio track, I could prepare a localisation into german. And maybe there are some native speakers for other locales …

Dutch and French would be good to.

That is a great midlands accent!

I’m afraid that’s not currently possible, but it’s definitely something we’re considering for future ones. :slight_smile:

Hi guys :wave: :slightly_smiling_face:

When I was searching for a community software, that fits our needs and our attitude towards other people, I found Discourse and this beautiful created video. Right time, right place :smiling_face:

Now I’m a totally fresh member of your community with an equally fresh installed discourse instance. Happy to be here and looking forward to interesting and inspiring talks with you all.

Best, Joerg
