Title: Discord
Post by: Juju on February 10, 2016, 04:29:15 am
Anyone using Discord here? It's like IRC and Telegram, but with voice channels. Started using it a few time ago when a few groups I'm on on Skype started getting bored of it.

Seems cool. Is it client server based or peer-to-peer? (Can i run a personal server, that is.) Anyway i should try it out sometime but for now ts seems fine.

I've been using Discord for a while, and it's pretty good. It's interface is quite user friendly and it's voice quality seems to be better than Skype, even though it seems to send significantly less data.
It's still quite new though, and you do occasionally run into glitches so you have to completely restart it, but it is updated regularly so most of the glitches will probably be fixed soon.

Necropost, if anyone is interested now that it's more of a thing. It has voice channels!

I heavily recommend linking the main text channel to IRC, tho, for activity. I can't voice chat for now but I got Discord.

We're testing out a Discord-IRC bridge. Have fun.

Discord is superior to skype.
Pros:
Dont have to install client.
Better UI
Group chat system is easy to understand
Cons:
none???

Can't wait until both IRC and Discord are officially linked.

Also Skype is garbage lol. It used to be ok, but now it's almost impossible to enjoy using. The classic client lags a lot when reloading old messages (10 seconds freeze) and the new client can't even be minimized to system tray, so it can be closed by accident, and it's bulky.

Skype also uses up lots more bandwidth than Discord. My crappy internet could barely handle Skype on its own, much less Skype + a game. :P

Yeah same

Also @Juju You should make WIRC hide the bot nick like with Telegram

I just did this. Can you please disable nickname coloring? Stripping it in omnomirc code would be a pain.

yeah all those notifications are annoying. I wonder if there is a way to turn off notifications from a single user in IRC

I am sure some IRC clients support it.

Just rightclick on the discord server and go to "notification settings" and then put the radiu button on like "Only mentions" ;)

I should do that too because I'm already on CW most of the time seeing the chat anyway

So now that I am slowly moving back into staff (as I did at my job two weeks ago and with other real life things), I have done some minor changes on the Discord server, mainly renaming #timgul to #music (at least, until CW 2.0 comes out), adding some extra people to one of the secret channels, getting myself and Caleb to have staff powers on the Discord server and updating some topics that were missing or outdated.

The word discord means "disarray, messy, unorganized, without moderation"

It just so happened that I was thinking of exactly that while making my post. Like exactly.

Thanks for the immense power granted to me on Discord :) Still doesn't beat IRC though!

Indeed, but trends change sadly. We have almost 40 users on Discord now and right now despite school we have about 15 online right now. Although things are quiet lately, there are many CW users who did not use our chatroom until the Discord server got linked to IRC, although the main problem right now is that some Discord channels are not available from IRC.
