AF Discord Server?

Post by Zuly on Sat Jan 23, 2016 5:53 am

I was curious as whether you guys would be interested in creating a Discord server for AF. It's a neat little client (also has a web option) that combines the voice functionality of VOIP clients like TeamSpeak, Skype, Mumble with the chat functionalities of IRC. Servers are free to setup and takes up half the resources that Skype does. You can opt to have the server appear in the public list or only allow people to join through an invitation link.

Because it works like TS and Mumble, it can detect if you are playing a game and show it as your status.  It also carries over !command functionalities from IRC clients.

Furthermore, it has add-ons like BetterDiscord that let you create/edit themes and integrate the cancer that is Twitch chat emotes into the client.

Since I discovered it, it has become my main comms client and it covers all the uses I had for Mumble and IRC.

 I use it as well sometimes, I find it neat how it shows what game you're playing.  I could try making one if anyone is interested.

oh my friend showed me this like a week ago, since we were using curse voice client already thought it was unnecessary, curse does the whole shows what game youre playing thing too and is definitely better than shitty skype when doing voice chat since you can adjust volume of individual people, but mainly we use it cause it does an overlay thing for league

thats fine, i dont know if i want to dl it right now, itll be a fall back if everything else dies, i already have 4 different clients running to communicate with various people and i dont feel like adding 1 more, and like i said its like curse and as far as im concerned discord's features that are present in curse are enough for me so there really isnt much of a point

That was the reason I switched. I had Mumble, IRC, and Skype running at the same time. I noticed some of the peeps that used Skype switching to Discord and most IRC communities that I frequent made Discord servers. I only keep Skype open during shift nowadays as I need it for work. I know how hard it is to switch because it sure as hell took me a long time to move to Discord from Skype but I was already sick and tired of Skype's bullshit. I only brought it up in case people would be interested.

I just use Skype mostly and discord as of a few months ago. Never used curse, but maybe I will when I play league with Meekoo if they want me to voice chat that is lol. and Skype IS shit, it sucks in every aspect, but since most people I talk to online use it, I still do as well.

I miss the good old days of msn. RIP.

https://discordapp.com/register

 You can register via there (it's a bit confusing at first and some shit still confuses me) and then I think you have to click this link to join pm for link

That was under the invite option, this is new to me as well so I'm not even sure myself. I could try testing on a new account or something and see.

Nah. I personally don't want to take anything away from here. It's more like a replacement for Skype so people can quickly find each other.

But Skype is a fully functioning and invaluable asset that keeps all of AF together.

How can something that works so well ever be replaced?
