Hey everyone, I've created a discord for our growing community. Everyone is welcome to come in and start playing their games! New, permanent invite --> https://discord.gg/y9YTStdGUb

Edit: Since it's already been mentioned several times that Discord is a bad idea, this Discord is a temporary solution to the necessity of establishing comms while we set up something new, probably TeamSpeak. I'd like to hear other suggestions though.

Discord banned me for supporting the President.

Hence why it's going to be temporary. A Teamspeak will eventually be our permanent home. This will help us gauge our support and how big of a Teamspeak we'll need to start.

It's been years since I've used either, but is Mumble not still better than Teamspeak? It's cross platform and open source, which is really important.

14
The_Huscarl [S] 14 points ago +14 / -0

Can't say I've really used much Mumble. Teamspeak is what I'm familiar with and I've never heard any complaints. What does Mumble do that's better than others?

11
Benjamin 11 points ago +12 / -1

It's open source, which is the main one. Other than that, it was known for having lower latency when I last compared them.

11
Warskullx 11 points ago +11 / -0

Better feature set, better codecs, lower latency.

I use mumble regularly and have no issues with it. It's just a little more difficult to connect to a mumble server than a discord server, but it's much less invasivse and resource heavy than discord. Might want to check if the owners of it are commies though

Mumble beats Teamspeak any day.

1
mvrak 1 point ago +2 / -1

None of the common gamer solutions were intended to scale to the amount that we'd have. I think Teamspeak is as good as it is going to get.

Why not matrix?

Your invite is dead, gotta set it to a permanent invite or it'll expire after x amount of uses/days.

I'd recommend setting up a new invite that doesn't expire and editing the thread.

The_Huscarl [S] 5 points ago +5 / -0

I'd never set up my own discord before. Thanks for the tip. It should be fixed now.

Please find a different place to chat soon. I use Discord for non-political stuff because I've got servers and friends there that I don't want to lose.

Dereliction 4 points ago +4 / -0

There was a group put together to organize and help fellow supporters get to DC for the 6th. Discord banned it and everyone who was in it, permanently. That's how they knew.

3
Scooby721 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yep. I was in there. Got banned and lost all my contacts. Got kicked out of every server. Fucking commie faggots.

Sadly I don't join the discord of anything that can be even remotely tangentially connected to politics. Because Discord will blanket ban you just for being in the server itself without ever having written a single sentence.

11
Dyldozer 11 points ago +11 / -0

Discord profile pic has been crack head hunter ever sense the leak. Still not banned yet. Don't know how. XD

RONIN808 7 points ago +7 / -0

I suspect they ban the free users that are members of these servers and keep the nitro accounts active....Only reason i can think of i survived the TD Discord purge - cuz i pay for nitro to use all my pepes in other servers.

3
DaesDaemar 3 points ago +3 / -0

My account was banned and I had been on nitro before. You underestimate their hate for us if you think a few bucks will save you. You just haven't been high enough on their radar for them to act yet.

Can confirm. Happened to buddies of mine.

Benjamin 7 points ago +7 / -0

Yeah, I have to use Discord for one or two other things, and can't risk getting banned. Fuck them. It sucks because it's an effective deterrent.

7
mango20 7 points ago +7 / -0

This is the problem with “one account for all your organizations!” I actually need Discord for other purposes than gaming (business related) and I don’t want to risk a ban from all servers at once simply for having an association with politics. It’s like on Facebook if you get banned they boot you from certain other Facebook services and acquisitions. Totally unethical behavior; guilt by association.

4
thekindlyman555 4 points ago +4 / -0

Can you not make multiple discord accounts to get around this?

2
HeavyVetting 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yeah but unless you can run the accounts on different devices it would be annoying having to switch between them, and there's still the constant threat that they could ban your accounts for having alt accounts.

3
DaesDaemar 3 points ago +3 / -0

Just wait for Google to follow suit. Your docs, 10+ years worth of email, poof.

20
pedesRust 20 points ago +20 / -0

Fuck discord. Please give us another option. I would be happy to join.

All of my legacy media (FB, Twitter, YT, and now Discord) is set to self-destruct at month's end, gave myself this month to backup and look for alternatives.

Discord started going downhill in 2018.

bluewhiteandred 20 points ago +20 / -0

Gotta move to Element/Matrix or something

I see you mentioned Teamspeak

Discord banned TheDonald: https://mashable.com/article/discord-bans-thedonald-trump/

HidinginNY 12 points ago +12 / -0

I'd agree with Matrix. Don't know about mumble, Element or Teamspeak. As long as they don't deplatform cause you disagree with the Leftists that infest everything.

10
bg4u 10 points ago +10 / -0

Element is just a Matrix client, I believe.

6
HidinginNY 6 points ago +6 / -0

I think that may be the case.

8
mango20 8 points ago +8 / -0

The more I look into Matrix the more it looks like a great solution. Decentralized and open source are the buzzwords that stick out to me.

5
HidinginNY 5 points ago +5 / -0

I'd have to do more researxh, but it seems like a viable option.

1
Dereliction 1 point ago +2 / -1

It is a great solution for the reasons you highlight, though conversely it's not as slick or feature rich as alternatives. And a lot of people don't already have it or even know what it is, which can be an impediment to building a community there.

2
DaesDaemar 2 points ago +2 / -0

Is Matrix a more encrypted version of Discord, where admins have back-door access and can ban everyone?

1
HidinginNY 1 point ago +1 / -0

I don't know. I'd have to look or ask around.

2
Foletado 2 points ago +2 / -0

They knew about Matrix Chat and its censorship before they made the Discord -- and decided to be part of the problem rather than the solution.

1
DaesDaemar 1 point ago +1 / -0

The server needs to be privately run, not cloud-hosted.

11
cyberpepe 11 points ago +11 / -0

I recommend checking out https://matrix.org if you are worried about censorship. The experience is quite comparable to Discord and it is pretty easy to host your own node.

10
Aoikaze2000 10 points ago +10 / -0

IMO I'd rather not do anything here with Discord... although I am down for exploring other options.

Trying to limit discord use so no. keep us posted when you make something else plz. will gladly join. man up guys this is not how we win, using platforms that essentially hate us.

7
Tenet 7 points ago +7 / -0

Check out Mumble if you are contemplating Teamspeak, it used to be less expensive and with better codecs and lower delays. Teamspeak is pretty good though - if you can verify hundreds of users, I believe you can do a non-profit license and get a free 500 slot server.

The PBKAC / OTTER alliance in WoT had one of those - the only limit is the community can't monetize anywhere linked to the TS.

Matrix may be a good option, the Element client is decent - not sure about voice chat though, it has it but people had some setup issues. Worth investigating.

Oh man mumble. Haven't used thst since it launched. I'm down for using that again.

CaptainRon77 1 point ago +1 / -0

If you have a PC for discord why is that the only way you can communicate with “friends”?

I talk to my clan and friends through message boards, emails, steam chat, and mobile texts. I’m not trying to be mean but if discord is the only way you know people, they aren’t really your friends. Friendship is bigger than talking on discord

Screw Discord, there's better platforms than that. Like this one until a better thing comes along.

Idk why people are all worried. This community is not related to politics. Discord won’t ban us. Just don’t allow political talk in the server.

Make a steam community instead

2
mango20 2 points ago +2 / -0

Consider me interested. You might want to consider Mumble over Teamspeak since TS requires a paid license and has user limits based on the license price. Mumble is open source.

Discord hates you, everyone on c/gaming, and everyone in your Discord server. They are keeping records of every comment made on the server, text and speech. By using their software you are supporting woke degenerates and their despicable ideologies.

You're basically saying, "Thank you for the boot on my face, and thank you for not stomping me in the face with your other boot, yet, sir."

But hey, I guess it's convenient...
