We’re moving the FastLED discussion to Reddit!
Google Plus is shutting down, and we have to move our FastLED discussion somewhere else. After consideration of many options, we’ve decided to move the FastLED discussion to Reddit: Go to https://www.reddit.com/r/FastLED/ and click the “Subscribe” button to join the Reddit FastLED discussion group!
Why we chose Reddit
We chose Reddit because it is a solid, popular platform with good support for sharing and browsing pictures and videos – which we love. And of course, Reddit has good support for all of the modern basics must-haves: posting, searching, commenting, password resets, mobile apps, and notifications. Reddit has many of related communities as well, including subreddits for makers, artists, developers, and Arduino enthusiasts.
It’s worth noting that Reddit does not host their own images or video. Most people posting to Reddit use Imgur.com for their images and video, and you can find a how-to for that here https://reddit.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/205243525-How-do-I-submit-a-picture-photo-comic-to-reddit- We’ll probably all use that guide as we learn how best to use Reddit for sharing FastLED projects and questions.
What will happen to all the existing G+ posts here?
Google says that in March, we’ll be able to download a data archive of the existing posts here before they shut down Google Plus for good. We definitely want to preserve as much as we can, and make it all accessible to everyone, just as it is now. Once we see what the exported data looks like, we’ll figure out where we’re going to host the archive; we don’t know yet, but as soon as we do, we’ll announce that.
