As the Maker Foundation dissolution reaches its final stages, one of the remaining tasks is shutting down the Maker Rocket.chat channel by taking the databases offline. This means all the public chats (ie #general, #speculation etc…), and conversations with other community members will be taken offline and become inaccessible after October 31, 2021. We recommend that any conversations a community member would like to keep should be screenshot or copy/pasted.
The MakerDAO Community is tasked with exploring and/or deciding on a new communications platform (ex. Discord). Moreover, given certain legal obligations (related to the ongoing class action, for example) the Foundation is required to maintain the Rocket Chat channels and cannot “pass” the RC account or channels included therein to the community.
Lastly, we understand the inconvenience this may cause for everyone and appreciate everyone’s understanding. We hope that with a two-month headstart, the community can find a suitable replacement and transition to a new platform.
