I think it just goes back to my point.
Also I don't see any problem with a discord for yourself and some friends to use. The problem is how you want to include the entire forum page on it. It is hard enough to control people on one site to not cause flame wars, imagen two times the work. In general, I recommend the discord channel, but only to exclusive people that you know won't be a dick.

Ricbent is right. This board should be the main discussion area. IRC is fine for a quick chat or question not worth a thread but having a major Discord server will kill the board.

as if the board wasn't inactive enough.

Staple and RicBent don't like Discord so NSMBHD will stick to IRC (that 1988 thing which is limited to ASCII characters and is complicated as hell)

seeing how you sum it up to this, I could say the same about you. everyone basically said there's no need for a discord and especially one ran by some random member.

meanwhile, ndymario's point is that he isn't some random nobody. turns out he isn't staff either.
it's standard procedure to consult the staff beforehand, rather than throwing in a thread with links. if there really was benefit having a discord, the staff would have started one.

this didn't deserve drama, but it wouldn't have worked out.


you see this sort of thing often now.
since just anybody can start a discord and title it after anything, nembies are tempted to to start discords for forums. but then, what's the point of having forums in the first place?

So in other words, Staple and RicBent don't like Discord so NSMBHD will stick to IRC (that 1988 thing which is limited to ASCII characters and is complicated as hell)


I gave a explaination why I am against a discord and yet your post sounds like we are against it without a real reason.

And you clearly have no idea what you are talking about. You can use Unicode. Aka you can even spam your shitty emotes there.

This

We barely even have a general chat thing here so what'd be the point to make a discord?

Sure it'd be easier for kids that register to ask one question, but really, account or not you can just as easily access everything from here.
Having notifications doesn't justify it either.

TCP was created in 1973, clearly we should stop using it because it's expired and using old tech is a Very Bad Thing.


Also, IRC is open and decentralized. Anyone can make their own server or client, and those are entirely autonomous. Discord is centralized. All the Discord clients that exist are the web interface stuck in some UI-less Chrome (which by the way is the worst way to develop apps and should be killed). All the Discord 'servers' exist within a central system that controls everything.

IRC is what the internet was originally intended to be. Discord is what the internet is turning into (see also: Facebook, Twitter, etc...).
