Jennifer Pearl: true [1:12 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: nothing is lost [1:13 PM]

Astromon: yeah its the best way to go [1:13 PM]

Astromon: having dif chat groups there for eterna sounds like a good idea [1:14 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: one of the things awe are talking about right now is how to incentivise the community to contribute more [1:19 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: that will definityly comeup durring the event [1:20 PM]

whbob: The community needs to know if they have the skills to help.  So posting the needs for development is important to rally the community [1:21 PM]

Jennifer Pearl: agreed we will discuss what is needed as well to make vsions happen i think but Eternacon may end up being more of a start of the converstion than the end but I do want us to leave with some solid directions to move [1:22 PM]

whbob: There probably needs to be working groups with a lead member to manage tasks [1:22 PM]

Astromon: we could have a page on the eternasite that says are you interested in this? then you may be interested in this [1:23 PM]

MasterStormer: idk if I got you right, but like the old Eterna univercity (or academy, I dont remember the name) there should be chats to teach every aspect of eterna [1:23 PM]

Astromon: or then you may be able to help in this way [1:23 PM]

MasterStormer: To get people into contributing [1:23 PM]

Astromon: oH yeah ive seen those teachings in chat [1:24 PM]
