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 ;-;

@lumi @ichii @mlubert @pry

Same. I really dislike platforms in general that replaced forums because they are always very temporary in their nature.
Want to look up discussions from 6 years ago? No Problem with forums, but there's no fucking way to do this on Twitter, Telegram, Discord, the Fediverse, etc... And that sucks a lot. I used to read old discussions every now and then because I enjoy reading people's views on topics that interest me, and it's also cool to see how things may have changed over time. Also, in forums posts usually are of way higher quality because there wasn't such a high pressure to respond fast than there is now. It's like observing part of history, and that feeling is completely gone with modern platforms.

@Feuerfuchs @mlubert @pry @lumi Forums coupled with TS3 for voice were the days for me :blobcatrainbow:
