Should we just fucking move to discord - mortified_penguin - 10-10-2017

Should we move to discord or nah

Discord:
  • Better voice quality
  • Better performance on practically every device
  • Fun bots and stuff
  • Better linux support (for me and jeo)
Skype: 
  • Everyone is already there
  • Audio sharing¬†
  • ?
Discord just recently added video calling and screen sharing, which was one of our primary reasons not to move. Now people want to move again. Make your case for or against and vote

Here's the discord invite link for our official channel: https://discord.gg/RtgvBfE

Surprisingly divisive, for some reason

Last time we did this poll a year ago, I didn't wanna move on there due to the lack of screensharing. Now, Discord's screensharing is fully implemented, and now that I think about it, there really is no reason for us to try this again. I'm not gonna say the move is ABSOLUTELY gonna succeed, but there is zero reason for us not to try this. It's now a program that has everything we've got in Skype, but better.

Let's not forget that Skype didn't immediately grab all of us either. I was on the fence about it for the first year or so, at one point completely leaving the group because I didn't feel comfortable in it. Circ also took a long time to get into it. DoctorDude, he's not even participating in the main FPE groups, period. Perhaps Discord will also take every one of us a little while to adjust to, but once it does, it'll feel like home... except a little better.

Again, there's just no reason to get defensive about staying on Skype. Let's see how it goes, if it goes eh, too bad. We're only giving it a second chance, it's not the hundreth or anything.

Discord is better in almost every way. The only way it would work however, is if absolutely everyone went. I don't want anybody to be left out.
Also, we would need to get our shit straight: last time, we had like two or three servers and it did nothing positive. We should have a planned out server layout (like what call/chat rooms should be in the server) before we make this move so that it isn't all improvised.

bad things about discord
  • no quoting
  • bad for mobile battery
  • only mods can change channel names
  • only mods can make new channels
  • no mood messages
  • Can't use camera on mobile
  • no screen share on mobile
  • NO CALL NOTIFICATION UNLESS YOU ALREADY HAVE TO APP OPEN

I'm getting infrequent crashes now, too. Just twice in two days, but that's still more than my experience with Skype. Not a huge deal though.

solution to the 2nd 2, just make everyone a mod

and its not like skype mobile was ever functional enough for mobile features to work anyway
