Open Town Hall

We will be starting a monthly Open Town Hall as part of an effort to get better feedback from our user base and understand what you need from the platform, what we’re doing well, and what we need to improve on. You’ll be able to voice your thoughts, opinions, concerns & compliments, and any other feedback you have.

The Open Town Hall will be an opportunity for you to meet the Core Team and ask us any questions about the project, our direction, our roadmap, the state of development, what we’re working on, and what we’re currently prioritizing. The event will be open to everyone, and will run every fourth Sunday of the month from 19:00 UTC to 20:00 UTC.

The meeting will start with a brief update on progress in the last month, and will then continue in a Question & Answer style where members of the community will have a chance to ask questions and we will do our best to answer them. Brief minutes will be posted on our blog after each meeting.


Super excited for this! Can’t wait to hear all the ideas and feedback!


We’ve added notes on the first town hall on the blog: First Open Town Hall |

Is there an event created in
Also the link to the Open Town Hall is quiet hard to find I think.

Hi all, apologies but none of the leadership can make this time, so we’ll have to cancel this one. We’ll see you next month!

I keep missing them, these have probably already been addressed but I need clarification :blush:

  1. I get requests from ppl who do not fill out thier profiles.

is there a way that they cannot request a stay without already having filled out some required information?

  1. I recently got a request from someone who lives in my own hometown and needed a place to stay for a couple days. Due to work and being broke.

although I was torn because I care, I know this is not the platform for that. How do we keep CS from turning into a different platform altogether?
And how do you handle these situations?

Much Appreciation!

Hi all,
Will there be a town hall meeting this month?

I am new to couchers (CS veteran before the for profit fiasco) and excited to see this platform and community bring back the true CS spirit.
