I’m the founder of a community (of sorts) called Sugarmaples. We’ve been using Slack for the last year or so. It’s a great tool. But it’s not so great when there are a thousand people talking about something at one time. We are going to start holding some really interesting video-conference-based online ‘meets’ with about 1000 people per meet. And afterward, I want people to be able to continue the discussion somewhere. Discourse is an obvious option. So is Facebook Groups.
My main need is to be able to silo folks. In the use case above, I need to isolate the thousand participants for each meet into their own space. They need to be prevented from entering or seeing the titles of other spaces.
Thoughts on whether Discourse is usable for this and how it would be set up?
