Anybody here use Discord?

Postby lelandbdean on Fri Jul 01, 2016 9:44 am

A friend introduced me to it. It's like a lovechild of IRC and Skype/Teamspeak.
And it has built in markdown formatting, which is cool.

I personally hate Skype and I've been looking for an alternative to crap like Facebook chat.
Social networks have killed most independent chat protocols. I barely see IRC used anymore...

Anyway, if anybody wants to chat about programming/game dev/whatever, here's an invite:
https://discord.gg/Agf47

(it will expire in 24 hours, and I'll remove the link lol)

We have a semi-official ES Discord channel, though the majority of fans are using Skype to communicate w/ Falco & team.

Just a shoutout, Discord is awesome. Fuck Skype, join the superior chat program.

The moment they integrate group video calling, Skype is dead as dirt. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that's going to happen any time soon.

Edit: Apparently it's on the list, and is possibly even due in the next friends list update. Wooo! I hope it works well (everything else in Discord beats the hell out of Skype, so I'm sure it will).
