ThinQ.tv FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THINQ.TV

ThinQ.tv is developing a platform for live online thought-provoking conversations. We are organizing a critical mass of people to participate in Tech Tuesday, Faith Wednesday, and International Thursday conversations. We aim to eventually have 24/7 conversation channels for a wide variety of thought-provoking topics. We encourage you to host conversations about your own topics and invite interested individuals and organizations.

ThinQ.tv is like a Zoom meeting or Google Hangout, except that people can drop in to the conversation from the home page Schedule of Conversations instead of having to be invited with a link. Please browse the current schedule and drop in to any of the conversations posted to get an idea of what you could do on the platform. You may also post your own conversation.


WHAT PEOPLE DO ON THINQ.TV

Bible studies - Several churches host their bible studies on ThinQ.tv. We’ve had people join from their hospital room!

Conversations - Conversations on all topics are permitted. We’re fostering a culture of intelligent thought, fellowship, and empathy. We encourage talking with people and listening, rather than the typical norm of internet video where one person talks at people.

Donations - Conversation Hosts, such as churches, can receive donations in the sidebar during and after conversations. Hosts may also sell downloads of ebooks or other writings and other items that they would fulfill.


HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN A THINQ.TV CONVERSATION

Go to http://ThinQ.tv and click the "Join Conversation" button if a conversation is in progress, or “Try a Conversation” when the chatroom is empty. Recent versions Chrome and Firefox work best. Do not use Safari. You may also join by phone: download the JITSI meet app in advance and join the THINQTV chatroom if prompted. That’s it! If you need to turn camera or mic on or off, click the icons at the bottom of the viewer.


HOW TO HOST A THINQ.TV CONVERSATION

Signup at http://ThinQ.tv. Click the “Host a Conversation” button on the home page schedule. Enter a time, topic, and a few details. No need to spend time writing out what you’re going to say. Instead, focus on inviting interesting people to join you and let them carry the conversation!


HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO JOIN OR HOST CONVERSATIONS

Nothing. We are currently focused on learning how to best serve those who would like to participate on ThinQ.tv on a regular basis. However if you do receive donations on the platform, we take 5% and the payment processor takes 2.9% + $0.30.


ThinQ.tv is constantly evolving and appreciates any feedback you might have! We hope you will try it out and realize it’s simple to use.
