OpenMW discord

Post by DestinedToDie » 19 Dec 2016, 17:28

These days I visit irc once a week and chat in discord all day. So I've decided to open up an OpenMW discord. Join me simply by clicking here.

I'm not sure about the advantages of a shiny proprietary platform over irc (open protocol, a lot of implementation) and the forum :/

there's one. globally saved history althought dancer is that forum is quieter or more active after it. it would take eons to scroll morrowind discord general page to start (half a year)

+ becos saved history and name pins easier to ask troubleshoot questions + support for emotes... general spam advisory .p

Tamriel Rebuilt is using Discord and I have to say the results are pretty impressive. It reminds me a lot of Slack.

I recommend using Discord instead of IRC and I think we should add a link to the OpenMW Discord server to the top of the OpenMW navigation bar and try to discourage usage of the IRC channel in favor of it. It's much better and has a lot of features you just can't get with IRC.

So people have been asking for a webhook to be set up so a bot would spam github updates on Discord. Well here is the webhook:

https://discordapp.com/api/webhooks/293 ... -cY/github

However someone with access to github would need to add that in. Here's a guide on how to do it: https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us ... /228383668

I'd imagine the apprehension towards using Discord has to do with the fact that it is proprietary and a lot of people here are FOSS enthusiasts. I really don't like IRC though so perhaps something like TOX could work as a middleground.
