TLDR: Discord is back.
How to Join:
Once logged in to the forums, you can use the ‘bull horn loudspeaker’ icon at the top the page to show the #general chat channel in a live view.
Note: If you post a message to the channel via the web, it does it via a bot, so it is usually best to hit ‘Join’ and go to Discord direct. You can also use the menu in the Chat widget to see the other channels and who is around online.;
After some discussions amongst the Mudspike membership and s…
We do have a Discord server/thing for Mudspike set up here:
You’ll all welcome to use it, although some at work might have it network blocked.
If there are a few people regularly on it then let us know I can have a fiddle to see if we could embed something here too, to make the chat/discord/teamspeak a bit more obvious of where to go.
At the moment it’s probably best we all just try stuff out and see what works.
Will give it a whirl when I get home.
Or maybe I’ll try it while I’m driv
Discourse Discord seems to be blocked here, pity.
nah it’s cool, I know a medflight guy… wait, never mind.
We should write something new from both Discourse (the forum software) and Discord (the gaming voip/chat) called Discoursed and complete the confusion.
You wait till I post this image of the widget as a picture and then people click on it…
Hmm, shows me as logged in but something went wrong. Now that username seems to be taken.
They have a nightmare mix of web and desktop apps, with user accounts being created on the fly even if you just look at it funny. I’ve found the best thing to do is use the ‘secret’ log out feature, and then sign in as the account you already have:
Discord is privately owned, with the largest investor rumored to be Time Warner. We can admin the channel but anything in there is not really yours anymore.
Caveat emptor etc.
Is it really better then team speak? Does it do something better or different?
Didn’t we sell our souls to Beach when we signed up here anyway?
well yes, but Beach isn’t trying to jump in bed with Comcast. At least not until his son starts getting ready for college.
Of course you did, and when he takes money from Time Warner then we’ll find out by the sound of his Ferrari driving away I guess. I don’t think he’ll make much off your contributions

@BeachAV8R is paying for this stuff each month to rip you off then you might not like them any better …
Edit: Hey, my soul’s gotta count for something. No wait, you’re right…
Tesla. Remember…internet forum elites drive
It’s a social platform really, like a gaming facebook. The Voip is good, but it doesn’t offer things like mumble as yet (I don’t think).
I think of it like Twitch / Skype / IRC / Slack / Steam / WhatsApp had a big ol Start-up 2.0 money baby. It is handy to see what people are playing and chat though.
The electric motor, the most evil propulsion system ever devised.
I really like discord - the Slackness, the UI and the voice quality is great!
So, a month later…how is the experiment going? I find myself still going back to TS3, out of habit, but I do have my Discord set up.
I think the “problem” with Discord is that it dissuades or distracts people from an actual website in that it becomes it’s own meeting place/forum with the perpetual chat channels!
I could be wrong though.
