I have recently purchased the Reformed.IO domain with the goal of providing collaborative means for Reformed Christians to commune.There has been of late a number of incidents on the major social media platforms (Facebook & Twitter) that have censored content specific to holding a Christian worldview. I do not think it is too unrealistic to see this trend continuing with the ultimate risk of the Christian witness being completely inoculated.
I’m currently investigating a number of different technical frameworks to use, but to host this and to make it successful will require funding. This will mostly amount to monthly expenses around paying for compute power. The more folks utilize the service the more it will cost to continue maintaining it and having it operate at acceptable levels.
I already have some high-level objectives defined and here the main ones:
- Forum Boards – To discuss various topics such as Sola Scripture, Confessions, Christology, and the like.
- File Exchanges – Ability to exchange files of interest
- Collaboration Teams – Create teams for specific discussions and collaboration.
- Real-time Chat
I’m estimating if there is a lot of activity with the service it will take about $30 a month to get things going. If you are interested in seeing this project take place, please consider becoming a monthly Patreon by clicking the link below. If just 30 people commit to $1 a month it would go live.
