Hi there,

to catch up with the community after a long absence, I figured I might fuse one of my favorite current pastimes with USP; Discord!

I fell in love with the Discord chat, and with our IRC currently being a little barren, perhaps our regulars can reconvene in this new, more modern space.

For the uninitiated: Discord is essentially a fusion of IRC, Teamspeak and private messengerss; an all-round package for gamers in which you can join various topical servers. It supports regular chat channels and even voice chats, though the latter are obviously optional. Another boon is that it keeps previous chat history, so you can catch up on what's been happening even if you weren't online to talk. Grab it over at the above URL!

Never thought about a Discord server... Nice IRC replacement.

I was considering saying about moving the chat to Discord, since it basically seems to have become the sucessor to IRC as far as chat goes, so it's nice that that's happened now.

Comparing Discord and IRC is like comparing facebook to HTTP.

Every group chat system since IRC has claimed to be the successor to IRC, yet IRC still continues, and will still be around long after the death of discord or skype, as they have all suffered the same problem as social media.
People only use the one that has the coolest features, so when another network offers something better, everyone will abandon ship again. Same for instant messengers.

IRC will continue because it is an open network, not a proprietary client. Thereby IRC can be added to anything and still maintain a small footprint.
Look at all the funky extras Twitch chat has, well guess what, it is normal IRC with a different interface.
I use Discord because I have to (same as facebook), but I use IRC because it is integrated into several communication tools I use. Even the browser I am using to type this has integrated IRC support.

Believe me one day Discord will just be another MySpace, and IRC will simply have other clients that use the network in new ways.

I've hooked up a bot which allows two-way communications between our IRC and the main "general chat" channel on the Discord. :)

Hey guys, keen to keep in touch with what's happening and reconnect with the community, but I share Dr.Flay's aversion to Discord.

Is that link between the discord and the IRC still up? I've googled a bit but can't find a link to the relevant IRC channel?
