After many long nights and lots of bug squashing we are finally ready to open up Qunu for general abuse. This is an invitation for everyone in the jabber community to try it out. Let us know what you think and how Qunu can be made better.
So what is Qunu?
In a nutshell, Qunu is a Jabber-based ‘ask-an-expert’-style service that you can ‘tag’ yourself with. Qunu allows you to use your existing jabber client instead of forcing you to lurk on a web forum, irc channel or muc room. In essence, people looking for help come straight to you, the expert.
How it works
Someone on our site searches for help in an area in which you have tagged yourself. They can request an anonymous chat with you. We then send a MUC invite to your jabber client which you can accept or reject. We only send thru invitations when you’re online and available, and you can change your presence with us at any time. You have total control.
It’s a great way to give your expertise back to the community in a non-annoying,
non-intrusive way. You can give help when it’s convenient for you, and best of all, you get to see the ‘thank you’.
How to get in
In order to accommodate the various ‘quirks‘ of all the jabber capable clients out there we have setup lots of ways to get in.
- Register with quser.alpha.qunu.com
- Add quser.alpha.qunu.com to your roster via a subscribe request
- Add email@example.com to your roster
The end result of all this is to get quser.alpha.qunu.com on your roster.
Let us know
This is an alpha release. We would love your feedback.
