As an idea--> Not entirely sure how Discord works; however, if I am guessing properly--- if there is a sub-discussion about a campaign setting or specific issue that is separate from the main discord hosted "room", perhaps it could be copy/pasted into a thread into the new "reddit" or new forum, like Sparkletwist has done with the old chatbox conversations that sprawled a bit. That would ensure the conversation is preserved in a way it can reasonably accessed in the future.

So we're moving to some Wordpress hosting. Building the new site will begin soon. Just a short update, wanted to let everyone know we're still chugging forward smile

Some updates:

Working on some core functionality for the Discord bot (dice for now; other stuff depending on what comes to mind and what people suggest).

Still evaluating our new hosting. Mixed feelings so far, but there is work left to do - especially on my part, as up until now sparkletwist has done most of the looking - before we decide if it's the right fit.

Some great conversations happening over the last couple of weeks, and some cool collections posted in the #inspirational-art and #inspirational-music chats.

If anyone hasn't had a chance to check out the new chat yet, make sure to join us using the link that sparkletwist provided in the Tavern.

Thanks for the update Hoers. Unfortunately I only get an invite invalid screen when I click the link in the tavern.

If you are interested in getting back old people (like Elemental Elf, Xathan, etc.) Is it possible for you to send a mass email to members of this board (through the board software to the registered email addresses) concerning the move/changes?
May be worth a try.

Also, once again not a Discord expert- can people start sub discord chat rooms? If an admin can, maybe one thing the CBG can do is give each very active member 1 sub-discord channel if they are actively working on a setting, for specific discussion/development. e.g. (#cadaverousearth) if it was still active. Since each person could only have 1 or (max. 2 in certain cases--maybe it could be further limited to only settings where players are running games), it may encourage people to focus development. And others could drop by from time to time like in a thread to comment on their setting (or games being run therein)?

There are already sub chat rooms, but we have to specifically add you to the "Members" group to see them just in case we get spammers or trolls or something. So make an actual username and come join us laugh

Yeah, and to add to this, the plan I had in mind is that we'd control the creation of new chat rooms and do it on the basis of games being run, rather than actual settings.

Someone popped into the chat on Thursday or Friday evening and voiced some concerns to me, but I'm not sure who it was, so I'll post generic responses to them here:

  • You can freely change your nickname regardless of what your actual login account is, and it should remain persistent once you do - no worries about an account having a weird or random identifier in it.
  • I try to be available most of the time, but we've all got different schedules and conversations come and go. Much like the existing forum, people will respond to comments that they see when they log on or bring up new topics, and we have multiple chat rooms (with the option to create more) to span different kinds of conversations.
  • Discord was originally built for gaming chat use, so it has some built-in features that allow you to broadcast to your friends/fellow chat members what games you are playing. This is not enabled by default - you actually need to link any gaming service accounts to your Discord account for it to do this
  • We've had a pretty great turnout so far. Lots of interesting conversation on systems, setting concepts, and off-topic stuff. Hope to see more of our people join us soon.
