Merry Christmas/Festivus/whatever holiday you do or do not celebrate!

2017 was a pretty busy year IRL for most of us - according to forum statistics, our busiest month was in June with 1671 total posts, meaning our post rate has been a little …

Forum Bug

Wed Dec 28, 2016 3:18 am by Adrian

Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

CC Discord Server - Thoughts?

Post by Adrian on Sun Apr 03, 2016 12:31 pm

Hey everyone! I discussed this with Hero of Time a bit, but before I start making some more movement I thought I'd get an opinion from you guys about creating an official Creativity Center Discord server.

For those of you who don't know what it is, Discord is a Skype/Teamspeak alternative - it's built towards gaming groups, but it's certainly not limited to them. It has a super-quick desktop download time, it's available on basically all operating systems (including mobile), you can open it up in browser, and best of all, it's 100% free - free to join and free to make your own server! It also takes up less CPU than Skype, meaning minimal impact on your other computer activities.

Discord lets server owners create multiple text-chat channels and voice-chat channels. If someone is being a little noisy/you want to zero-in on a conversation, you can even turn individual voices down on your end. It also lets you alter your username whenever you choose, and allows for quick and easy server switching when you have multiple things going on at once. In addition, there's also a Friends List function that allows you to add contacts for PMing purposes, and game overlay. There's probably more that needs to be said, but I think I covered most of it. Here's a link to the site if you want to look into it for yourself! http://discordapp.com

Again, I'm looking for input at the moment. Technically, the server is "made," but there's still quite a bit of set-up I'd have to do, so I'd like to see where the idea sits with you guys. If it's all-clear, I might add a few "Slasher!" text channels, just for the hell of it. Let me know in the poll above, and I hope you all have an excellent day!

I've used Discord a few times and enjoyed it, so I think this would be a good idea. I'll probably continue to use Skype as well, though.

Never used Discord, but I may as well try it out o:

EDIT: Okay so, I'm also always going to use Skype because I have more than just a few CC people on it. But it'd be cool for other purposes and not just like, moving everything xD

I'd rather keep everything on Skype, simply because I prefer keeping everything in one place. I've downloaded Discord before and it, when running at the same time as Skype, tends to slow down my computer. If CC did create a Discord group, though, I would probably still join it 'cause I don't like being left out.

I've been using Discord for about few months to talk with some of my friends and its pretty much amazing, but I do have to warn you that although its a lot better then Skype in a lot of ways its still build more toward talking all the time instead of just chatting. It's more of a superior Teamspeak then Skype.

However the service is pretty awesome, I've had very little trouble with it and from what I can tell it doesn't have a lot of problems. I'd be willing to help set-up a server for it since I've done it before, but I'm sure it wouldn't take you that long to get a handle of what everything does; Its pretty easy to understand if you test everything out and/or read the little question marks by some of the options.

Overall it'd make arranging game nights and group calls easier, but I'd still prefer to use Skype for everything else.

Yeah. I figured later on that we wouldn't want to completely carry over from Skype (which is why I added the second option xD), but for game nights/little stuff, it'd be nice to have. I've been on it for a couple months now myself and it really is awesome, but since we're so ingrained in Skype now, Discord would be more of a side-thing to have.
