AKA Discord?

Post by Asgore Dreemurr on Wed May 11, 2016 7:00 pm

If you don't know what Discord is, it's this new program that is another medium of communication similar to the likes of Skype and Teamspeak. It has a ton of new features that Skype and Teamspeak do not have, and is much more safe and easy to use than any other application.

You can create multiple channels within a free server to separate chats by subject, and the friend system is very secure, so you won't get spammed by some random on Skype. You won't get sniped online either, because it comes with IP protection and server encryption. Not only that, but there is both a browser and downloadable version.

I was thinking we could migrate to Discord, since it is much safer and people who can't or don't have Skype can use it. We can separate our RP and AKA chat to be completely independent, and have a chat dedicated to voice chat while all being under a single server. We can also make other kinds of channels and keep it all neat and organized. There are also server roles, so moderation is possible. (There are also moderation levels, so we can translate AKA staff ranks to Discord with no problem.) Also, Discord runs much better than Skype does. So voice lag and other issues will never be a problem.

You can check out all the features here compared to other applications: (It also comes with a dark mode Very Happy)

Downloadable version: https://discordapp.com/download

You can choose to not download it and instead use the browser version.

Discord is much more customizable than Skype and relatively more convenient overall.

I'll give it a shot. I mean I'll still use Skype, but I'll give it a whirl nonetheless. Also Ten, Videns character in SF2 is making greetings with Cylon.

Sorry. Been really busy so I didn't notice. Finals weeks of school are stressful.

Also, to add friends on Discord, you take their Discord tag and add their number.

For example, my Discord is Gnash#3366

Thank you for the suggestion @Asgore Dreemurr

If you want your suggestion to become a reality, give me the names of X people who do not have mod or admin powers on AKA and I guess we could try to make it happen. AKA get a petition going and get signatures.

Separating the chats hasn't worked in the past, considering some of us (myself included) have a habit of just talking about RP stuff whenever we feel like it without going to the other chat. What makes you think we're not going to do the same simply because it's "more organized"?

Tama, I told ya in skype, and I'll say it here: We're not going to yell at people to make it more organized. I don't care about organization, and I don't think Luna or Ruby does either. If they do, they can say otherwise.

Here is what I did not tell you though. If say we do get a discord, I'd probably set up a text channel for announcements and stuff that only admin could send messages through. Like "Oh, this RP is starting up" or "Welcome this person as a mod" or things along those lines. We will not force organization on the community.

That wasn't what I asked on here at all, Dazo. Your response here literally has nothing to do with my question, which was this: Why bother separating the chats when no one is gonna follow it anyway?

It was an option they can consider implementing. The decision to do so is up to the mods, ya know. It's just a feature I wanted to put out there to show the many uses Discord can have.

EDIT: This is one thing @Dazo talked about with the announcement channel thing. http://prntscr.com/b30cta

The fact that dazo is posting about this, and you guys are denying him. Is bad. I agree with this and we should kick the skype chat and move to this.

Lmao fire, I'm hopin for the best and preparing for the worst. If anything, if people actually do say they want to do it and post it (mods and admins not included) then it just gives me a reason to actually talk to you nubs more and maybe even care.

Not to mention I USE discord on a daily basis. I know it's a good program. Just giving AKA a server convinces me more. Besides that, I don't really care if we have it or if we don't. If people want it, people can have it.

But usually if ten and I back up an idea, people tend not to like it, usually how things work around here.

People hate us by default so they discard our ideas most of the tim. I'm just saying this is something that'll benefit them. It'd be appreciate it you the members of AKA could convince people to sign. Also you guys, do me a favor and please add my Discord: Gnash#3366

Non-admins need to like this or else it can't happen. I just hope people can see this objectively rather than denying it for being...well us.

I see no reason for it. The skype chat has been doing fine and no one has been complaining or having issues aside from the occasional lag spikes. I'm not switching. Sorry, not sorry.

Nice thought, but no reason for it. Skype is working fine for the majority and the majority will not want to switch. This includes the most active admin (me.)
