A Discord Chatroom

Postby Dawnbreak » Sat Oct 08, 2016 1:16 pm

I am going to bring this up, because someone has to.

Skype is an unreliable piece of software. Its memory leaks, horrible interface, and general poor behavior over the last few years have been leaving a sour taste in my mouth, and I want to get rid of it fully at some point in time - something I cannot really do given my position.

Hence, I am here to pitch the use of an official TER Discord Chatroom. Discord is an amazing, free software. It barely uses data, allows for more personalization, more flexibility, less lag, and my personal favorite - better emoticons.

I would like to gauge the interest of the community and that of the other members of the staff in this thread.

Edit: Here is the invite link.

I agree in-so-far that Skype is a generally crappy software. Having a discord might be good, I guess, at least for ease of getting in touch.

You would have my support. Discord has a bunch of advantages and additional or just better functioning features.
One good example is the fact you can properly mute a channel, including the sending of files. Which Skype fails at.

No annoying ads and ad space too. And the fact you can have multiple channels within the same group is major.
It is also a nifty feature that you can display which game you are playing, allowing you to see if anyone is in-game.

I've never had problems with Skype myself, but if most people would prefer Discord, I guess I'll come along.

I will be making a channel and posting it in this thread in the next few hours - it will be for those who are interested, and for testing the waters and seeing if it will gain enough traction to overtake our usage of Skype.

A friendly bump for anyone that has missed this thread, most of the community members are most easily reached through discord.
Here's another invite https://discord.gg/dq4REY
