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.

Is there really not a Discord for people who frequent this place?

Some guy being a new member with a single post using our logo, which made it look official. Sounds legit.

I have a server set up, but haven’t posted the invite link yet because I tend to think it’s just going to be a real-time Off Topic section.

Well I didn’t remember the details I just knew someone had posted something.

What’s the point of having an off-topic session if it can’t be a little crazy?

Call me a nerd but I really want a Discord so that I can know the people of OT.com better.

You could probably make use of channels to contain Off-Topic’s wackiness.

Hot take: The Force Awakens is in no way, shape or form a rehash or remake of A New Hope.
It’s no more derivative than the average sequel, and is certainly less derivative than the prequels.

Have at it:

[link deleted] - Instead of a global invite, I’m going to control access to the Discord by requiring members to PM me and request a unique invitation that expires after one use.

When you register in the Discord, please set your nickname to match your forum username.

Please note that the same rules apply in the Discord as this forum.
