Nachdem wir unser Forum im Juni geschlossen hatten, stand die Tails-Community ohne einen öffentlichen Support-Kanal außer IRC da.

Wir stellen vor:

Um diesen Verlust auszugleichen, haben wir beschlossen, eine neue öffentliche Mailingliste für den Benutzersupport einzurichten.

Diese Liste ist der richtige Ort für:

  • User support: solving doubts about how to use Tails, security implications of Tails, etc.
  • Community interaction: information and tricks about ways of using Tails that are not officially documented but might be of interest to others.
  • Small issues: pointing out small things that we needed to fix and do not require a complete bug report. That's fine and we appreciate it.

This list is the wrong place for:

Some reasons behind this decision

Since 2012, we worked on replacing the old forum with a question and answer application. We hoped we could have a shared application with The Tor Project that was heading in the same direction. For many reasons this did not happen.

To solve this we decided to:

  • Einrichtung einer Support-Mailingliste als neuer öffentlicher Kanal für den Benutzersupport mit Hilfe der Tails-Community.
  • Gather frequently asked questions from the forum and the list on our website.
  • On the long-run, have Askbot into Debian and improve it with the features we need.
