please let's put that cursed thing where it belongs

in the trash

@lumi cant til I find a reasonable alternative honestly

@pry for most of its functionality: look at xmpp

for the rest: soon™

@pry tbh i think the biggest thing is where people are

discord would not be valuable without its users

it wouldnt have gotten so big without their pretty religious hype squad

their strength is being able to use your friends against you, and more than anything else, that's the reason i hate it so much

@lumi @pry Hype squad came about way after discord exploded though.

It became big because TeamSpeak 3 didn't keep up with modern software. XMPP was never Discord competition imo.

@ichii @lumi @pry Using Discord for voice chat: Great. Trying to use Discord for ANYTHING else: Garbage.

I've seen SO many subreddits and other groups turn to Discord to function like a Wiki, but making read-only channels that are designed to be read chronologically as a sort of record. What's that, you want to cross reference something? TOO BAD HOPE YOUR SEARCH DOESN'T RETURN 1000+ MESSAGES

@mlubert @lumi @pry Yeah it is terrible. Text chat should be used only for what TS3 chat was used for: sending links, pictures, and random banter.

A chat is not a replacement for a webpage.

@mlubert @lumi @pry Just like I hate how Discord killed forums, as organised threads went to hell.

@ichii @mlubert @pry i used to be active on those forums like phpBB, myBB and whatnot long ago

i miss them ;-;

@ichii @mlubert @pry i hope AP gets public/private groups at some point … i feel like it could bring back at least a part of that

@lumi @mlubert @pry I would be happy enough with Google Plus-like circles.

@ichii @mlubert @pry i haven't used G+ enough to say whether i like that or not

@lumi @mlubert @pry I haven't used it much either, but I like the concept and I can see the usecase here.
