Anyone know how to see a list of one's etherpads? I am using etherpad via Disroot and can't figure out how to list my pads and the ones started by others to which I have contributed...

THREAD I shared this with my speculative fiction community.

Boosts welcome.

Thoughts SUPER welcome.

With the recent closing of spec mags, a thought keeps returning to me: solidarity economics could (possibly, maybe, potentially in an “easier said than done” way) produce some added stability for mags.

Ideally a VERY easy to use interface for non-tech people to add resources to a shared list. Something like the old list of websites I maintained for the Association for Union Democracy, with an easy form for submitting new items.
