I know we tried this with AIM several years back, but I wanted to know what the interest might be for everyone if we started a PMS Discord channel.

Discord is a chat service that I think was originally invented for gaming, but is a service that also allows for a persistent chatroom that is open by invitation-only. I've been on LUE's Discord for a couple months and it's been nice to be able to just pop in and pop out whenever and see if people are available to talk or simply check in, rather than trying to set up coordinated times to talk.

If there's interest I can see about getting something set up, but the grumpy old side of me says he likes that we typically check in with each other here on the board. Just thought I'd see if others might be interested in the concept.

There's already very little activity here. Making a Discord channel would fragment our already tiny community.

I would probably sign up, for what it's worth.

What's the benefit over just opening a group PMS chat on Facebook?

I hate facebook chat. I would join a PMS Whatsapp or whatever this thing is.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

You do? I've had one going for like five years with a group of 5-10 people. Works like a charm.

I don't know if there's any actual direct benefit over a Facebook chat persay, but I think in my mind it "fits" together better with a GameFAQs-born community. I agree that we don't need to unnecessarily fragment at this point either. But I just thought I'd put it out there as a perhaps future option.

For some reason that I can't quite put my finger on, I know that I would probably mute a PMS FB chat thread and not check on it like I should, but would have no problem at least wishing everyone good morning on a PMS discord channel. I think that's why I suggested it.
