What kagi can't fix is that most forums nowadays don't exist anymore and moved over to discord which is also a big reason for worse search results.

For example I had a technical problem with a device of mine, searched for maybe half an hour on Google until I joined a related Discord. Searching there in the support channel and I found the fix for my problem. Would Discord not exist and all the content be queryable by Google I would have found my answer within seconds.

I don't understand this trend and i hate that it's a thing. I also hate Discord.i shouldn't have to go to a fucking chat room when a forum works better.

Exactly. I would be less mad if it was Matrix, but Matrix search is really slow and not likely to get better.

Forums make a ton of sense.

Absolutely despise discord, fucking internet herpes.

Yeah, Matrix is way better, but the search there is way too slow on busy channels.

Just post stuff on the open Internet...

I guess my point was that locking all that knowledge and troubleshooting behind chat interfaces, and obscuring it from search engines makes the internet worse

[–] [email protected] -1 points 2 months ago

Agreed. But if it's at least FOSS, it should be fairly easy to get the data out for searching.

That is kinda what it was designed for before profit got involved.

I really want to see more from the commune-os to make matrix communities more publically accessible or even selectivily. The AP bridge especially

I think their discord is bridged to Matrix
