Board discord
« on: March 15, 2017, 05:18:46 PM »
So there's a stuffing RPG bugtesting discord, but I feel like with a community the size of this forum's, and with so many of us interested in gaming, it'd be a good idea to open up a Discord for the entire forum. I can launch the thing if nobody else wants to, but I wanted to see if any of the forum moderators felt like this was more their cup of tea before I went ahead and did so.

A discord would generally be a good thing for the sense of community, especially for people like me who are more willing to talk idly about this stuff vocally or in a chatroom than through forum posts, and often have better ideas in a quick rapid-fire conversation than a lengthy series of posts. Not to mention it actually gives a stronger idea of just how many of us there are and how normal this actually is when you see 10-20 people on at one time.

Plus, for those of us who enjoy playing these games that are made here, especially the tabletop games, the Discord might be a good place to set up roll20 sessions or gaming groups to test these things.

This is certainly not a terrible idea.  Discord rooms are able to handler a lot of people, and different voice and text channels can be made for all of the projects on this board.  I would like to see kilif's input on this, as he is the one who started this forum for us.

This should be the permanent invite for the discord. Right now, there's just a general channel (for anything), rpg channel (obviously), request channel (for requesting bots, new channels, w/e), and finally a leadership channel for admin things.

If you're a developer and join, just ask to be denoted as much on the request board. PLEASE at least nickname yourself the same as you are here on the forums, otherwise it will be confusing for everyone involved.

Also, if I did anything wrong, please let me know. First time setting up a discord server, so we'll see how well I did in actually setting it up. Oh, and one last thing, voice channel was removed. I can add it back at popular request, but somehow I doubt that's going to happen.
I'll finish something one of these days!

I don't know about 'popular' demand but I for one am actually fond of voice chat. The only thing it really eliminates is 'all girls over the internet are secretly guys', and I actually get my very best inspiration as a writer from conversations with people.
