I can't hit the "Thanks button" enough for this ingenious idea of HtheB's
I HIGHLY suggest and recommend ....especially for the "Newmo's" who have joined ...to go first to discord and they can get assistance more easily and readily than waiting for someone to notice a post here and reply.

It would go a long way to cleaning up redundant and non relevant posts and threads here...

Not to mention Discord is pretty freakin' cool and slick and easy to use.
A MASSIVE step up from IRC
Think of IRC on steroids and psychotropic mushrooms.

More people are joining in, glad that this will work out.
Need to add some stuff on the server, like a FAQ with links to useful stuff.

What’s the benefit? Is it for gamers?

I concur. What for you may be The Next Best Thing Ever™ is for me Yet Another Thing™ (that may die in three months). What was wrong with the channels we had already? How is fragmentation and diluting resources supposed to be good?

Discord actually started for gamers indeed. But that's not the case anymore.

There are some good advantages on Discord, like a few of them:
  • - Easily read back log, even if you're not logged in (no need to check different sources of logs)
  • - Simple login to your account using a browser.
  • - Also has clients for Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android and iOS.
  • - Build in (extremely good quality) VOIP, handy for group talking discussions and meetings.
  • - Direct file sharing to the group or personally.
  • - Pin important messages so everyone can easily read important things, like announcements
  • - Push messages for mobiles, so much less battery drain than using IRC.
  • - No hassle with BNC's
  • - No need to find channels, as all the channels on that server are visible already.
  • - It's freakin' almost 2019, don't stay behind (:

The people who already uses Discord, knows what I'm talking about (:

Some of the problems with the normal channels at the moment:
  • - Reading backlogs can be painful.
  • - IRC is not for everyone.
    (If someone sees everybody as themselves: Please remove the horse goggles and look around, not everyone is technical and knows how to use IRC and it's commands).
  • - This means a wider audience can be achieved more easily.
  • - You need to find the right channels for the right topic.

You may well be right, but in just the past two years, our company changed the internal communication medium six times. I am sick and tired of this "hey guys, look, I found a new thing, let's all switch to it right now" trend. That attitude may appeal to teenagers, but, sadly, I am well beyond that life stage. In fact I am closer to the grave than to my teenage years

For a FOSS community Discord isn't very FOSS...
There is also the possibility of Discord taking the same fate as OpenFeint

welll...
This whole freakin' place for the last ump-tine years now has hardly been a still pond...
Every day I turn around a half dozen times reading the latest posts here about "the latest device" , "the latest app" , "the latest whatever"
I am royally sick of that shiny-bauble-chasing crow-like behavior that has inundated Talk here.

As far as a debate between IRC , and a better "shell" to utilize the same function, but with more ease of use (ESPECIALLY for new folks), and more interactive functions, doesn't bother me in the slightest.
I RARELY go to IRC for most of the same reasons as has been expressed ..
So something a bit more user friendly ...
Especially when playing catch-up and reading logs...
with a clean interface that is gentler on the eye...
suits me ducky.


As far as it not being FOSS enough...
How many devices does everyone have here that are purely FOSS?
I know mine aren't.
or rather what is on them isn't totally FOSSy...
I limit what I do have that isn't FOSS and use alternatives when I can and when they become available , and
at one point in time I did have hopes it could be done, to not have any unFOSSy crap on my devices,

But
I couldn't go completely FOSS back in the day and I certainly can't now.
Not and do what I need ...and get it done...work wise , personal banking, etc.

FOSS works fine on an "extra" device or laptop or pc...

But realistically the rest of the world expects interaction based on nonFOSSy crap.

So I just have to reject the whole "100% FOSS" belief.

As far as illegalities occurring with Discord and it suffering the same fate as Openfeint ...
Anything is possible.

If there is a more stable and similar alternative to Discord , then lets explore that possibility,
But fearing it will suffer the same fate as something else is premature.

Actually there are FOSS alternatives to Discord ...if that is the ultimate desire...
Security and privacy.
(and personally I am ALL for that ...so that option should be explored and migration to said best alt is a sane option.)

-Matrix.org
-Retroshare
-Riot.im
and
-Tox

I haven't checked any of them out, but all are free open sauce alts to Discord.
