C'mon guys, an IRC? SMWC has a discord. I think it's a better way to organize general chat instead of in the forums. Barely anyone seems to be active on the IRC and it refreshes chat every time you reload. So... Thoughts?

Also, sorry if this is in the wrong place. It technically has nothing to do with hacking NSMB, and I couldn't find a better place to put it. I won't just make one because I'm pretty sure someone made a skype group a while ago and kinda got bashed for it xD


Edit: I went ahead and made an unofficial server:

Bumping because the IRC really does seem dead and forums aren't great for quick questions/discussion, And I want people's opinions.

That would actually be a kind of nice idea.

Also LimitedLime didn't get bashed for making a Skype group, he got bashed for doing it in the most idiotic way possible - spamming on many different threads, and when he was told not to, he starting raging.

Anyway, a Discord would be an okay way to communicate to be honest. The IRC chat is inactive, yes, and Discord IMHO just generally feels better. But whatever, it's the staff's choice

The IRC chat is inactive

If you have a question and go ask it there, you should get a reply quickly enough.

They/we just don't really have anything to say there in general, most of the time people are talking on other channels or other platforms.

Discord is generally better than Skype, for example, it has a bunch of useful moderation stuff while Skype is just a basic phone call.
It could work, although very strangely.

I've asked questions on there before, though, and I've only gotten a reply once.

People reply to questions when they know the answer, and when the questions are relevant. And of course, when they are available.


Offtopic: whoo, I just catched a killed a mosquito in a single move, without having to move from where I am. It was a dumb one.

if a Discord group is made, it will be controlled by the board's staff, and any groups that are creatded by random people will not be officially recognized or affiliated to NSMBHD


we prefer IRC anyway, it's simpler

But I think a Discord Server would be more active then the IRC. It's not as simple as IRC but way better imo.

I have to agree. Honestly basically everyone should agree sy this point, really no reason not to. A Discord chat would be much better than an IRC.

It's also not as simple as IRC, but it's still fairly easy to use and is generally better.

Discord doesn't seem overall as active as Skype and such, to me.

Also, I'm not much of a Discord fanboy.
IMO, it doesn't give the 'official' feel either, and the layout feels somewhat cramped (I had trouble finding the user settings, too).

It's basically the same as the time they were like 'Move to Discord! Because it's better!"

You have the rights to like whatever chat you want.


Back to the topic of IRC, the staff and users who used it for years and are used to it probably wouldn't love having to suddently move. Having both a IRC and a Discord channel wouldn't make much sense, either.

And the more channels we get, the more we need to manage (or else, it usually turns into a bashing group).

Well, I see a Discord group in hell pretty much every gaming community of the games I like. And they each have about 500 members.

just because it's Discord isn't going to magically make it more active.

Well...

As far as I know almost no-one uses the IRC. Discord at least has notifications and doesn't disconnect every time your computer goes to sleep, and it also shows the chat history. These are likely some of the reasons that the IRC is so inactive.

You could also just make your own Discord for you and other people who don't like IRC.

That's what I've done Link is at the top. Don't worry, haven't made it an official server.

I don't think so. I am in several other IRC channels that are more active.

There was already a thread on the "Genneral Chat" area called "discord chat The HACK" trigger by yellowwinner.
Any type of communication between people, which aims to optimize the process of developing ideas,
as well as increase synergy in the knowledge of the topics proposed, should be free to all people on the planet.
Although it is a very interesting idea, I am inclined to agree as StapleButter on the following point:
Once the "Discord" tool is parallel from NSMBHD forum, any subject matter there will be unofficial and opinions published on that area, will not be considered exactly the same view point of NSMBHD forum staff.
