Discord server: are you interested? (Instant messaging/chat)
« on: December 03, 2018, 12:58:43 pm »
Now I know at least the non comic discussion part of the forum is kinda dead and that essentially a chatroom might seem like an idea doomed to fail from the start, BUT I figured I'd ask anyways. Partly because I figure instant messaging can be slightly more of a passive thing than checking a forum and people might feel like it's more easily accessible in a way because they can just pop in and chat for a bit now and then if they have the program running anyways.
I might be wrong.
I'm not overly active in the chats I participate in myself, but personally I thought it would be nice, even if I'd only end up having a conversation a couple times a week or something.
Anyways, if there is interest I think it's worth at least a shot, doesn't cost anything anyway.

Discord
So for anyone not knowing what Discord is, it's an instant messaging program that also has voice chat. Similar to Skype except better. You can set up servers, essentially group chats, and add multiple separate chatrooms or channels, not unlike a forum with sections and threads, as well as voice chat channels that you can just pop into.

I'm proposing we try making an unofficial Flipside forum discord server (if there is interest) and see where it goes. (I'll take responsibility.)

I've had some as well.  Just minor though, but still!  I think a Discord server would be good for Flipside.

Help would be great, I've never done it before, and it would be good to have someone available to moderate at all times if necessary as well.
Just plodding along.

Yknow, I probably should mention this more, but I do actually have an official Flipside discord server, so you could feel free to use that!  Here it is: https://discordapp.com/channels/421466600806285315/421466600806285323

I had no idea, that's awesome!
But that link doesn't seem to work for me.
Just plodding along.

Sorry, I'm still a bit new to this discord stuff!

Here is a proper link, this should work: https://discord.gg/TSmUEH

The invite link expired already.
I'm pretty sure you can make permanent invite links unless you don't want lots of random people stumbling upon it and joining.
Just plodding along.

You're right, sorry... I didn't realize there was a box you had to check so that the link wouldn't expire.

Okay, THIS one should always work: https://discord.gg/DRhrBGb
