Hey everyone! Brian Here! Earlier today, Hope4321 posted a thread on how she wished we could all hang out and chat and support one another in real life. Well, a gem (or germ lol) of an idea came to me. Since I belong to an online gaming community, we have chat servers where all members of the community can gather and be able to voice chat and play our favorite games at the same time! So I thought I would set up a server (or channel, as I'll call it from here on out) where members here can chat in real time, either by voice or by text. I chose to use Discord (don't let the name fool you) to base the channel on because it's absolutely FREE! Hey, who doesn't like free??? lol
So, you're probably asking, how do I get in?
Well, first off, head over to discordapp.com Just download and install the app (or you can open Discord in your web browser if you prefer).
Once you create an account name (be sure to use your username from here so people can identify you), just follow the link below:
Once you enter the channel, you'll have unlimited access to come and go as you please and chat with anyone currently in the channel! There is a main voice room you can go into to chat via voice as well as a text chat channel if you're uncomfortable doing voice chat. There are also private rooms if you just want to chat with a couple of people only, away from public chat! Of course, the Rules and Regulations of this site will apply in the Discord channel at all times. Any violations of the rules and you'll be asked to leave. I hope that everyone will at least give the Discord channel a try! It will be available 24/7/365, as long as there is interest in keeping it going.
Now, there's a place to chat and get to know each other and really hang out in real time! Won't you join me?
