Post Forum, TS, Discord and stuff - Discussion Reply with quote
Lo all,

So I thought we should probably see what the appetite is for a bit of a revamp.

At the moment we have the website, these forums and TS3 server.

There has been discussions on the use of Discord instead of the TS3 server as it pretty much does everything TS3 does but for free. But if people really want to stick with what we have then fine but lets discuss first.

Buggerlugs how much does:

- the website and forum hosting currently cost?
- what is the cost of TS3 server?

There are lots of fancy clan website with snazzy forums like http://fightcluboutfit.enjin.com/ but it would be a shame to lose this forum in the process of moving to a new one. Do we really need a new jazzy forum?

Personally I think Discord is something we should focus on regardless of a new forum, it fires up as you log in and immediately you can chat with Fight CLub members, see what people are playing and go and jump into a voice chat if you want. The persistent chat element and easy of set up really sets it ahead of TS3.

What do people think?

This fourm is antiquated and shit and I can't properly post pron and stuff on it as easily as I could if it were a spiffy new one!

We don't have to lose the current one just archive it and keep it available.

Is keeping all the old crap really worth the cost of not being able to embed YouTube cat videos?!

This forum still has a kind of...nostalgia to it that nothing else will come close to, I am for changing TS --> discord though

I've transferred ownership of the Discord server to you FS, you should have full admin access now.

It's basically a mix of TS3/Ventrillo and IRC chatrooms, all modern and pretty-like.

If you mean the Discord, the invite link is in this bit of the forum, the link in that topic won't expire unless FS revokes it.[/quote]

Ok thanking you I will work out how to work it.

There are ways of embedding Discord into a website using a widget that you can put into the website code, that might be an option.

The discord app is a great way for us all to keep in touch as soon as your computer fires up. We already have the voice channels set up for PS2, PlayerUnknown, WoT. We can set up more for whatever game we want to play.

Is everyone ok with Discord - any nay sayers? It is free, we can chat, talk and I can't see a better option really.
