I’ve actually thought about this before. I’m all for it, as long as it doesn’t replace the forums in any way. Just to use for casual discussion.

We tried an IRC channel several years ago, but it never really seemed to catch on. IRC is a little arcane to use unless you’re old school though.
Telegram can also be used for this sort of thing?

I’m not terribly familiar with Discord, the only things I know are that

  1. A lot of Star War Galaxy of Heroes guilds use it (I don’t)
  2. A lot of Nazis were recently removed from it

With that said, can anyone explain to me why you would need to use it for this place? Why can’t you just post whatever you’re talking about here?

I presume the real time aspect of chatting with everyone else is the appeal. It was fun when there was a chatroom when you livestreamed TRM a few years back. Some other sites have a “shoutbox”, which is similar to IRC in look and feel, but no way to know who’s actually there unless they say something.

I’m waiting for video chatroom technology where we would all be in little boxes like some giant Brady Bunch title sequence. 😉

So, basically the Random Thoughts Thread?

I know a lot of gamers use Discord.

I’m not sure where I stand on the idea. It sounds like it could be a good idea, but I’m not sure how many would participate.

Nothing is so perfect that it can’t be complained about.
