Agreed with those above. Those who have spoken against it at least give it a shot, it's pretty awesome!

Exactly. So it only works on three browsers. Also TeamSpeak is far more intuitive IMO. Of course I use them all for voice chat namely. If all I want to do is type then IRC or Forums work just fine.

Edge is almost there, and Safari (4% market share) is long off, though the standalone client works just as well.

No fault there, and not pushing Discord as the end-all-be-all, but the API available to it, allows me to extend a lot more features to Discord than we would have otherwise, and many players are already using it. I had the idea to do so on IRC but I was informed from quakenet staff that it was not going to be permitted, started on my own application that had gotten quite some traction already but I'm playing catch-up with an already existing platform, when Discord was then brought to my attention. Unless there's a better client from a technical, and general user friendliness and feature, I haven't found it.

To be fair, those three browsers are about 90% of all browser usage :-)

And that's a huge plus :-) Being able to develop for the client can be great!

Needless to say, I finally jumped on the bandwagon as well... 8-)

283 members is quite a lot, and with that over 100 members were online at the time of this writing. With that in mind a lot of overlapping conversation has been occurring among the channels. Have any suggestions regarding the channel layout?

Aspect of Sorrow,

I'm not in the Discord, but I assume you have not assigned a Numbered channel system to specific topics.

Example:

Those are voice chat channels, but the same concept could be applied to text chat channels to?

It's just a suggestion from the blind perspective of not being in the Discord server

For anyone interested, there's now a channel on the BG discord with a live feed of developer changes.

As always any suggestions are welcome!
