DC on Discord :O
« on: December 03, 2017, 11:26 PM »
So...after months of bugging him, I finally convinced mouser to get on Discord!!!  :o

If you want to come join us on the DC Discord server - the link is https://discord.gg/9J4mHfF

(Discord is a text and voice chat app, available for all platforms - it's kinda like IRC 2.0)

Lots of features - DC Forum RSS feed, and voice chats with yours truly (and whoever else wants to say hi!) are all part of this :D

Did I mention it's better than IRC? haha

The link again is: https://discord.gg/9J4mHfF

If you don't have discord, just quickly signup, download if for your system (or even use it in your browser), and then you should be on the server! (If not, after you register, just click the link again!)

Heh. I created a DC Discord server a long time ago. Probably a year or two by now. But no one ever joined it (and stayed for more than an hour or so).

Of course, that was mostly my own fault for not really "advertising" that it existed. But I did mention it in the IRC channel a few times. ;D

* Stephen66515 casually bumps this post

So I changed a few things and don't know if the old invite link works anymore!  So...here is a new one :)

I'd want to write on IRC, but I can't, as by default the 'voice' flag is off, so I can't even ask there to turn it on... :-[

Seems like the best approach would be to create a discord<->irc bridge bot so conversations on either show up on both places. That way you avoid splitting the audience between both platforms (or you end up with even less people to talk to).

We had a Discord<>IRC Bridge (The remains of that are still on the Discord server in #donationcoder-on-irc) but it seemed completely pointless paying for it to stay online (VPS) on the basis that the only person who ever talks on the DC IRC recently, is the forum bot, lol.

Considering we have a fairly large community of people, it surprises me that not that many want to come and chat in real-time about various topics :(

Honestly, I'd prefer Discord to be the option over IRC (more modern features, always connected, etc etc), but in all honesty...if everybody chose IRC for DC...I would be happy anyway...I'd just like to see more interaction between members of the community XD

I changed my mind and added the bridge...now it doesn't matter if you're on IRC or Discord...We can see you from either end!  :D
