Francesco's idea is great. I would like to suggest that we divide
responsibility i.e. we let one or two ambassador handle a particular
network. We can further have country/region specific threads running on it.
which can further managed by country/region specific ambassador. We should
further try our best to avoid creating multiple spaces or threads of same
country/region as it will only lead to confusion and mismanagement.
