During the Asia Regional Nodes Meeting, it was flagged that we need a way to communicate to individuals in the region and maintain the sense of regional community. Consider:
- The regional mailing list hosted by GBIFS is for node managers and a bit of “official” business channel
- Creating a mailing list for the group could be a bit isolating because it’s not the mainstream method for open discussions online
Does it make sense to create categories specific for each region?
However, we wouldn’t like this initiates “category exploding” on the platform, But consider this as a light-weight option for attendees to focus on regional priorities while still open to global views and possibly contribution from other region.
What do you think?
