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

If you want to get more in touch with the forums but you rather not use IRC
Then Click this link https://discord.gg/2MyfSfN

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

However
Side effects include: Lower Forum activity

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).

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

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"
