Lemmings Forum Discord
« on: November 20, 2016, 03:36:36 AM »


The Lemmings Forums Discord is for the game Lemmings from 1991.

This is NOT for GlOiRlIiLlLiAl TiAlGi!

We get so many people looking for that server simply because of the creator's name. If you're looking for that server, then don't click this invite. It's gotten so out of hand that I need to say this.

If you're here for the video game Lemmings from 1991, or for NeoLemmix or other related stuff, find the link in the spoiler:

I deem the Lemmings Forums Discord unofficial at the time of this post, until Namida says I can deem it official :P
But either way, Enjoy :)

One of the major points of a forum is the written rather than spoken style, and that the posts don't disappear just because you're not there when they're posted.

I certianly have nothing against this existing, but I don't feel it appropriate to deem it official. We don't even have an official IRC channel for the forum itself (albeit #neolemmix somewhat acting as an unofficial one).

EDIT: Over the time since this message was posted, it's become more official (and pretty much replaced IRC). However, I'll stress that as forum admin, I still reserve the right to later declare it "not official" if I feel it isn't being run in a way consistent with the forum's values. So far, I have no reason to believe this is going to happen, though - it's a "just in case" statement, nothing more.

I think this is going to be our replacement for Skype namida, a lot of us made Discord accounts last night and GigaLem created the server.

I don't think it's going to used for anything other than poker nights or stream nights :thumbsup:

If its not too much trouble, I know it may not be official but can this topic at least be pinned for those who want to join?

However
Side effects include: Lower Forum activity

Another side effect similar to that would be the activity on Quakenet would go down; may even become unusable if we all relied on Discord to chat.

I would not be very afraid of this. I think most of the stuff will still be in IRC or the forum.

You could even say IRC is bringing down the forum activity with the same argument ;P       

For quick chats which are not worthy of creating posts or topics these alternative methods are way more handy. It could also increase the overall interactions and "bounding" between forum members.

I recently stumbled across this
https://github.com/reactiflux/discord-irc
A bot post messages from IRC and Vice versa, I want to set one up but I don't know a thing about Discord bots
I was thinking of making it active to a tribe I would put it in (I would call the tribe #irc_tribe) and the bot's name would be "Satalemming"

I'm just reflecting here an announcement made in the chat: We have waited long enough on the issue around the ownership account. If it is not resolved by the 14th of November, I will create a new Discord server to replace this one. I may do so sooner if I get the impression GigaLem is not making any sincere effort to resolve the situation. To avoid doubt, this is a deadline for the issue to be fully resolved, not just for next steps to be taken.

Does that mean it'll basically "start over", or will all content carry over from the previous server?

If you mean by this "Will it still keep all the same channels, roles ect.?" then it's up to namida, but if you mean "Will all our old messages still be on there or will there be 0 messages?" then there won't be any of our old messages on the new server. Unfortuantley that is impossible, so all our old memories will be lost. Hopefully GigaLem can just get this sorted out, though, and it won't come to that.

Yes - it won't be possible to transfer messages, though I'll certianly look into whether there's some feasible way to archive them. I figure there's got to be something - official or otherwise - that could comb through the chat history and save everything.
