Questions or comments

How do I have a conversation?

There are two main ways to have a conversation on Confidist.

  1. Host a topic for a conversation.
  2. Join a topic for conversation.

On Confidist a topic is a starting point for a conversation. It usually is in the form of a prompt or a question. An example topic description might be something like: “If you had to guess, what do you think is the meaning of life? I’ve always thought it was the pursuit of understanding.”.

To host a new topic for a conversation all you need to do is navigate to the community that you think the topic belongs to, type in the description for your topic in the text box at the top of the page, and click “Host”. Alternatively, you can find a listing with “Suggestion” next to it and select “Host” to prefill a description.

On the homepage of each community, there will be a listing of topics being actively hosted. This is indicated by the “hosted by…” text in the footer of each listing and the “Join” button. After you select the “Join” button you will be matched with an active host and be entered into a live conversation. Be sure to say a friendly greeting to let them know you are a willing participant.
