PostSubject: Felarya Discord   Wed Dec 27, 2017 11:21 am

Back in the day I'd always advertise the chatzilla/IRC chat. It had always been successful, and had run for a good several years before Sokai (the admin who made it) left, promoting me to a mod. In an effort to save the IRC, I moved it to Skype, where it saw a boom in membership. IRCs have always been a pain to connect to, and been difficult for people, also using software that is specifically meant for such a thing. Its really easy to forget that its there. With skype it was always there, and easy to use.

I know people have talked about putting Felarya on a Discord...but...Felarya already has a discord. Mangamastermind, and old forum user here made it, and we moved the IRC there. I'd say current occupancy is about 20-ish people? Vaderaz, Mage of Mist, myself, Pendragon, and some others are already there.

The other thing is, I'm not sure how to integrate it with the forum users and activities. Its mostly for RPs and OOC discussion. Luckily, since its discord, it can have multiple channels and servers within itself.

I know a good number of users here speak french. Could always make alternate language rooms too. Krisexy, French Snack, Karbo, Gwada, etc.

Discord invites expire though, so posting a link would unfortunately do little good. I'd have to continue updating it, or personally invite every person who wants to join.

Kinda weird for my first post in ages but you do know that you can set a discord link to not expire right?

Can you? I still don't know everything about discord. (I also want to set up a bot, but that looks like it takes a lot of time to do)

Yeah all you have to do is go look around in the settings for the invite link and change it to not expire

The thing here, is that the IRC was initially meant for small chat and RPs, but now with 20+ members it starts getting a little crazy. I do want to invite people though, I'm just worried that in the back of my mind it'll get a little nuts.

I want to find a good way to organize the discord channel is all.

Perhaps the fact that the forums and the Discord aren't intertwined can be a blessing; is Karbo on this Discord server, and if so, can we request that he also distribute a link on dA and Patreon?

Maybe. Dunno. There are a little more people now, as I've been distributing the link to the channel pretty slowly. I was hoping to invite the mods first, thinking on how things would work out. Currently, because its based on the Felarya IRC, the mods and admin on the Felarya discord aren't the same mods on the Forum, and I'm not sure who would have authority over whom (I really don't want to have that conversation. I hope its not necessary). Do we give the mods on the forum modship status on the discord as well? Hard to figure.

One of the reasons why I've been slow about it is the issue of leadership. However, bringing it up like this in public makes me feel like I'm making a way bigger deal about it than it honestly needs to be. Still - they're two different sites.
