This is just GREAT.  :)
I was reading he thread about the problems MauryG5 is having with his AMD NAVI graphics card and thinking how difficult  it would have been, especially for a Linux newbee, to have gotten to the bottom of his problem on IRC.

I do hope more people will be signing on here. I only stumbled on the link on Twitter, where I seldom visit.

Sorry JollyRoger; not so much a shipmate yet, as an x86 landlubber who dreams of the open sea, but has only gone as far as exploring the wreck of G4 dinghy found beached on the shore. ;)

Outside of Twitter, there is an official OpenPOWER (and PPC) community mailing list, though it sees little activity,
http://lists.mailinglist.openpowerfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/openpower-community-dev

and discussion in a Level1Techs thread (hi q66), including a post about this very same topic of people/discussions being scattered across different platforms,
https://forum.level1techs.com/t/the-power-and-powerpc-general-discussion-news-thread/122515/245

Also, if I read the sidebar correctly, ClassicHasClass’s Talospace blog is willing to take guest posts too, right? So it, with its comments sections, can be a watering hole of sorts as well,
https://www.talospace.com/



Maybe there should probably be a dedicated community page on the RCS Wiki, rather than just linking to a few places in the main page’s footer?

Edit: Sorry if that everyone already knew about those, just writing my silly ahoy response and leaving it at that felt a bit empty.

Yes, guest posts are welcome, subject to editing for accuracy and house style. Do note they would be uncompensated (the money I make basically pays the domain name and defrays a sliver of Floodgap's hosting costs), but your writing would remain yours.

And welcome.
