I got my Monzo card a few weeks ago, and aside from the card processor issues we had a few days ago, I’ve been loving it. Let’s hope the current accounts come sooner rather than later, we’ve got some catching up to do!
I’ve noticed that the Monzo community forum is super active, but I’ve been on the hunt for more places across the web where people that are interested in fintech and alternative finance are hanging out to discuss their thoughts, review products etc.
So I thought, who better to ask than the lovely Monzo community? Please use this topic thread to leave comments, suggestions and recommendations for hang-out hotspots. These can be subreddits, Facebook groups or pages, blogs, you name it!
That reminds me, the 11FS team have recently created a community for FinTech followers called FinTech Insider News.
It works similarly to Hacker News or Reddit & the users are generally discussing news in the wider context of the FinTech industry, rather than looking at it from user’s perspective as we tend to here -
Was not me (I rarely flag), but flagging can often be as much about literally flagging a post to Alan for consideration of the topic as the actual content of the text
That particular forum got off to an odd/unpleasant start by my understanding with parodies and the like of :mondo: staff, so we want to be careful about anything that can be considered promotion of such content, in line with the Code of Conduct
It does seem to have settled down a bit, but is pretty quiet right now
Thanks for the suggestion of this other Fintech forum, as it did play host to parody accounts it doesn’t seem to enrich the Topic in my opinion so the flag has been reviewed. The fact that it held at least one account that parodied a Community member, doesn’t seem to align well with our own Code of Conduct.
Absolutely, if this other Fintech forum has been misjudged, I’d be more than happy to re-address this in future.
