ePlaya promoting virtual regionals

by some seeing eye
ePlaya is the official open source BMORG platform. We can be a destination for regional virtual events, as well as in-person IRL events post-pandemic.

It looks like Eplaya has lost resources and visibility to the Org in the past year or two. The slowdown in access over the last Burn hurt us a lot. (Where they memory/server problems??) Anyway, that needs to be addressed before we open Eplaya for more posting.

I've met literally hundreds of people on eplaya and then met most of them face to face on the playa. I'm still friends with so many of them. I don't really see that happening from Facebook. The event itself is morphing and online trends gyrate as well.

I've had the same experience as Sham *waves*, but most of the action I've seen toward creating virtual stuff is in the r/burningman group.

This is what we refer to as "anecdotal evidence"

It was the eplaya M&G's when everyone on here showed up. I guess you could meet a few people from FB, but I don't see the large gatherings like eplaya has.

I've never managed to make a reddit meetup on playa, but I've met redditors; the eplaya meetups were rockin' for a bit, there.
