This page is officially retired. I can’t keep up with new groups anymore, which is a good problem to have. As indicated below, if you join Urbit, go to ~bollug-worlus/urbit-index in order to find public Urbit groups.
You finally got set up on Urbit and you don’t know where to go. Here is a list of public Urbit groups you want to be a part of. Of which you want to be a part. Napoleon Bonaparte.
Obviously, one can find these groups on Urbit but it seemed sensible to have a resource on the outside to show potential new users what’s to be found before they take the plunge. Groups can also be found on Urbit by going to the Urbit Index (~bollug-worlus/urbit-index) where there is a notebook for communities to advertise themselves. The Stack’s Urbit Groups page has a telos, and that telos is its own obsolescence. In the meantime…
The Urbit Community Page
For those who are interested in Literature and Language (primarily English canon)
I’m forming this group to do a few things.
Learn the habitations of words and souls of sentences (etymology, usage, grammar, structure &c).
Vaunt the heroes of the language.
Create a space where it is not only acceptable but expected that one write effortfully, like the epistolary or longform of old and not like Twitter or sms (it is fine to write briefly, but try to do it well).
Pleasure in the aural and oral elements of the language again.
For those trying to learn Hoon
For those trying to learn Sea Shanties
