This is sort of a continuance of the conversations following Simon's post
last week about too much traffic on the list!

The problem I have with most of those options (Reddit, Facebook, Discord,
Twitter, & also the mailing lists) is that you need to sign-up to them. I
don't know IRC works & I don't even know what Telegram is!

As someone said last week, it would be good if the simple act of creating
an OSM account to edit the map, also gave you access to the "forum" or
whatever, to ask for help, give advice to others, discuss new tags, have
local conversations & so on.

Personally, I think that we should be making much more use of the existing
Help forum, with a complete redesign of the first page, to break things up
into "lounges", as per other forums eg http://fordforums.com.au/index.php
