How do you feel about a Discord server?

Post by Marauder » Sun Feb 05, 2017 4:13 pm

If none of the gurus have any idea on how to use Discord servers, I could easily set one up and transfer control to whoever among you wants to be the server administrator. Of course, you can also set roles which can give other people admin powers as well, so you can have multiple gurus holding the remote, so to speak.

Moreover, I'd like to ask the current community about their thoughts on having an official CLOK Discord server. Discord is much like Skype but without the video chat and it's on its own server, meaning you don't have to deal with peer to peer lag. It's free, too, so don't worry about server costs.

What do you think? Would it be helpful to organize stuff and have CLOK lore meetings again if Jirato comes back and decides they'd be a good idea?

Discord seems to be turning into a popular thing. I'm all for another way for the GMs to communicate, even occasionally, with the playerbase. As is frequently mentioned - a lot of us do come to CLOK and stick around because of the OOC community.

We already have one, I just never bothered advertising it since Discord has 0 accessibility options.

As far as accessibility, it's not all that bad. "Accessibility" is such a relative thing. I started using the PC app last night and it's clumsy, but again, not that bad. IRC is easier in comparison, but Discord is still a baby. They've got time to get it together. The ios app is a disaster. The web version is fine.

If any VI folks need help setting anything up, just contact me in the way that's easiest for you.

FYI, the CLOK #general channel in Discord and in-game chat are now linked up through a new Discord bot.
