Unofficial Cyborg Central Discord Server

Post by PolosElite23 on Fri 16 Jun 2017 - 13:39

@taerKitty and I have gone ahead and created a Discord Server for the Cyborg Central Community. It should be a bit easier to manage and do stuff with than Skype. It currently has Voice and text chat capabilities and will have video chat later down the line.

You don't need to download an application to join. You only need an account with Discord, which is free. Please note there is some level of verification to protect the server, which is. You need a verified email before you can post. This helps us root out any nasty bots or anything. You'll need a role before you can see or post in the major chat channels, so post in the admin-requests with your username and we will get you a role sorted out.

I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

The problem with platform change is that transitions always leave people behind. We're not going to 'close' the Skype group chat down, but be aware that there may be GSG, anime, and etc. activity elsewhere.

Discord is like up-with.com. Up-with allows people to create their own forums. In addition to GSG, there seems to be some fantasy sports leagues, RPGs, and just hang-out-and-chill forums.

Discord allows us to create our own 'servers' which are virtual chat 'domains.' Each server can have it's own set of chat channels, members, and rules.

The SWA Discord virtual server is for Cyborg Central regulars. We have chat channels that parallel most of CyCent's active sub-forums.

It has a better UI than a half-a-dozen Skype windows open for IMs with this person and that in addition to this group chat.

You guys are always so ready to jump on the Next Big Thing. (sighs) Guess I'll have to roll up my blanket and put out the fire.

Mario Bossi would make a better handler than Marco Toni. Come to think of it, so would Christiano.

Elizaveta didn't jump - she was pushed.

Sofia was pregnant. It would have been a boy.

Ok, I'll figure out how to do the Discord thing...

Discord is pretty straight forward. I use it with the Twitch streamers I interact with.

Thus he did. 12 of us so far! Looking forward to more! I'm keeping my eye out so I can add roles when people come online.

Just want to note that while I do check the forum every week or so, I am now pretty much only using Discord to discuss GG and anime.

While it's kind of meant to be a real-time chat platform, I find it works great just to post one's thoughts and allow others to chime in later. And if people happen to be on at the same time, then some serendipitous conversations have been the result. cheers
