Why don't next-epsoide have a Discord Server it's easier to connect

Re: Discord server

IMO a forum fits this site nicely. smile There's not a lot of traffic, and given that people are from many time zones a forum probably makes more sense?

Discord is way more convenient as most of people like us use phone and it's better to chat with others and share some thoughts

Re: Discord server

There used to be a chat system on here, but it got abused by a small few and died after that so it was discontinued.

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Curious to see santah's opinion. smile

Re: Discord server

I don't see the need for one.

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: Discord server

Why not create a fan made discord and make a post about it? Run it smoothly and if Sabtah sees it working okay, he may give it a news article or something after a few months. i'd happily help sort out a discord.

seriously, anyone using chrome knows what to expect - chat programs though...can get VERY personal...in PMs etc..

Im just saying I would not use it...but then again, I probably wouldnt even if it was IRC. so..theres that smile

Re: Discord server

Discord will hardly give you less privacy than a completely public and structured internet forum does.

Some people keep comparing Discord to Forums, and it seems to me that it's those people that only use forums in particular. I disagree with that.
It is an entirely different mode of communication, only having "text-based messages" in common really. Their use cases just aren't the same. There is a lot more structure that goes into a forum, for better and for worse.


That being said: I think the context of this site, slow content flow and all, fits the use case of a forum much better than it does an IM service.
Running both is possible, but from my experience, it often leads to subcommunities forming, which can be rather toxic to an open forum.

I would therefore recommend not to go forward with this idea.
