i like this idea, but it has only 300 views for a year, and i have no request by this canal,
i had three, but by other way :
one from an announcement i made on /www.leboncoin.fr ( french second hand market ) i do guidance by phone call, and the guy make a donation to /e/
and two requests ( not concretised ) from there : [OFFER] Je veux fournir des appareils de seconde main avec /e/OS pré-installés
for information in one year have resold only one /e/-galaxy-s4 and two /e/-galaxy-s4mini to some friends
I changed a line in the Wiki (first post)'s introductory text to remove any limits to specific countries or continents. Manoj himself added continents and countries that were not part of the original enumeration, so I think this is probably uncontroversial.
Thanks for volunteering to start a community in Brazil.
You can create a post with a title like ‘/e/OS community in Brazil’ or something similar. In that, share the location where you would like to create the community and request others from your area to respond. This could be a starting point.
I have added these details to the initial post.
You can wait for other users from Brazil to post in the same thread. If you have folks living near you, maybe you can all plan to meetup.
The idea is to have informal gatherings across the world of /e/OS users. Have fun and in that if we can get some flash parties also that would be the icing on the cake.
A few recommendations from my own experience and what I have noticed when Fairphone meetups were initiated in other places:
Only schedule a meetup once a significant number of people have contacted you and at least 1-2 of those definitely commmit to attend it. Also make sure to leave enough time between announcing and holding the meetup, so you can spread it widely (social media, other communication channels in your area). Never limit it to just this forum community. I am optimistic that Manoj is willing to support you there with /e/ communication channels – if you give it enough time (I would suggest a few weeks, not just a few days).
An email address in your local community topic’s first post here allows everyone to get in touch with you (not just people signed up here). Don’t limit yourself to users of your favourite tool, email is the most universal way. Make up your mind how you do this without falling victim to crawlers that collect email addresses for spam purposes, e.g. you can insert the address as a picture or spell it creatively yet recognizable, e.g.: example letterbox • com If necessary, you can replace the email address with a different one after a while if it attracts too much spam by then.
