Maker goals - gone?

It's been some years since I've used Ship and Maker features on PH. I swear there used to be a way of listing weekly Maker goals with the community. Has this feature been discontinued? If so, which platform/community is most active for this purpose? I googled around and see there is wip.co but the engagement seemed pretty low on most posts. Open to suggestions on or off PH.

I used to like Maker's goal segment too!

I think the closest you're going to get is Pioneer which is kind of like a tournament. Otherwise I wonder perhaps a Slack channel that does this!

Indie Hackers maybe? Depending on your audience, I'm building a community of founders (who focus on developer audiences), if that's of interest I can share more.

@gd77 devocate.com. Very new but we're starting to get more context in our community. We have about 200 technical founder subscribers, just need to get the community going. Reach out if you need anything!

@tessak22 ah! indie hackers - I'd read a lot of posts there but have never joined. I never knew they had a goals feature. Heading over there now. Thanks!

Hey Nathan, over time, weโ€™ve noticed that usage has declined and weโ€™ve ultimately made the decision to sunset Maker Goals in its current form. Our new goal is to spend this renewed time and focus on tools that better serve your longer term needs. https://help.producthunt.com/en/...

@leandro8209 fair call. I am joining a couple of platforms. So far indie hackers and Lunadio are looking good. Perhaps I'll make a collection.

As you mention, [WIP](https://wip.co) shares a lot of functionality with what used to be Maker Goals. (Although we launched a year before Maker Goals, so I'd argue it's the other way around ๐Ÿ˜…) Some parts of the site might suggest otherwise, but we've got hundreds of active members including multiple makers who won Product Hunt Maker of the Year :) A lot of the activity happens within a chat with others makers, but joining it is optional. If you prefer to stick to the site, you can do that. We also have desktop apps for Mac, Windows and Linux ( https://wip.co/menubar ) If you're interested in importing your old Maker Goals we can probably do that too. Just send me an email ( marc@wip.co ) and I'll walk you through the steps.
