Hey there scuttleverse. I'm mostly interested in scuttlebutt for a personal application on my computers at home. I'm wondering if people are doing similar things already, or if I would need to write something myself.

What is the best way to get a question out to people in the know? Is there a channel for scuttlebutt apps or questions? Can I cross post my question to multiple channels? It doesn't look like there is a re-share feature to increase a post's visibility.

Sorry i didn't see this sooner @Matt McKegg

Channels, in my opinion, is something of a misnomer. They function much more like tags on twitter. So, just tag something with multiple hashtags and it'll show up in all those "channels".

There's a channel for each of the apps, if you have an app specific question, and the scuttlebutt tag (intentionally not tagging it here) is good for general ssb stuff, and it's generally not hard to track down the creators of the apps here. As far as I can tell they all seem happy to help people out with questions.

I'd just provide specifics describing what you want to accomplish and related questions, and post it in scuttlebutt.
