Would you still chat if the discord never took over?

Unread postby Example » 3rd February, 2018, 6:58 am

I was just thinking about henning's posts a bit back abotu how he doesnt chat because of discord and I wondered if there were any other people who dont chat because the loss of chat
would you want to be on a chat that had no cams but would be actually integrated in the site
if there is enough people maybe something can be worked out

yea people are content with the discord and it doesnt have cams so it got me wondering
i get in the beginning losing cams seemed really big but i think everyone's adjusted to it and now the care to cam isnt as strong
it would be cool if we got some people back cause of a site chat but we will have to see if anyone reading the forum even likes the idea

An integrated chat is better than a third party chat. There are simple phpBB chatboxes simple and lightweight.

Not nearly as much. Discord is just too accessible.

^ basically this

I would still use flash chat but way less, simply due to the way it worked (or rather didn't work) on mobile devices

I came in the age of discord and one of the reasons I actually got to the server was that I found the discord first, and then the forum. So I don't think that I would be here without the discord, unless I managed to stumble upon the site.
But if there was a 'flash chat' reintegrated within the forum, I would probably use it, although discord is so much more convenient, breaks less, and is easier to find and organize messages in.
Additionally, while Discord doesn't current have cams in server voice channels yet, they stated they plan on rolling those out hopefully by spring/summer this year, and I think the state of constant development also makes discord more favorable

I recall seeing a reddit post from a discord representative about it. This would've been in mid-2017 and they listed off planned changes over the next year. This included private group call upgrades, screen sharing, spotify overlay (which just went live), game integration, and a few other things, and stated that they eventually wanted to make voice channels more accessible and functional by eventually adding voice to them. I don't think that they had an exact deadline but wanted to see how their progress was until they began experimenting. Like most of their other features, they'll roll it out to about 5% of users/servers for testing purposes

Discord is far superior in every aspect but cams and even those are planned on being implemented.

Sadly, no I wouldn't. The discord was the reason I actually joined the community, and I am definitely more active and reachable on it instead of the forums.

Well considering for at least the last 6 months of it's life Flash was so broken to be nearly unusable for me, and when It did work there was always some annoying issue that just made it unenjoyable to use.

The statistics say it all really, The discords activity continues to grow strongly month on month and I doubt a lot of the friendships that have formed over the last few months would of happened if we were still tied to flash chat.

this thread isnt about choosing between discord and no discord or how well the discord is doing tbh
its more so for the people like henning to speak up and see if there was a nice amount of people who dont chat now cause of the loss of an integrated forum chat

Although you won't find me on them, I do think the cam element is a miss though and does bring members closer together. There should be a timetable or more of an effort made to promote Tinychat sessions at times, IMO. Just like how this games night is a regular thing and stuff.

Lets remember that Flashchat's cams broke for about a year too during 2013-2014 and we all had to rely on going to Tinychat, which we regularly pretty much every night. Just takes someone to say "wanna Tinychat?" I guess.

I don't like speaking up. I'm more of a talking down on people kind of guy.
