About having a Discord server

For now, I have decided not to have a Discord server for this site for a few reasons:

  • I am concerned with the privacy policy of Discord's services and data mining. I have also heard that the platform is not free-speech friendly, as well as other concerns. (see here and here.)
  • Discord runs slow on alot of times, an on many devices it might not run well and take up too much resources.
  • It can become a place for drama and toxicity. And I've seen alot of crazy things go on down there.

For now, just use the wiki chat or the IRC channel. I know that potential users might demand for a Discord server given that it is very popular right now, is more convenient and easier to connect, and offers more features. I'll think about it if popular demand wants it. If we do put up a Discord server we are making sure that it is well moderated. - SapphireWilliams (talk pagecontributions) 00:36, 29 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
