please let's put that cursed thing where it belongs
in the trash
@lumi meh all my friends are on discord, little chance i could convince them to switch off of it, so i'll keep using it for the time being
@pyromage i understand ♥
at least we're not arguing about where it belongs
@lumi cant til I find a reasonable alternative honestly
@pry for most of its functionality: look at xmpp
for the rest: soon™
@lumi I need the rest lmao
@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 network effect is powerful
@pry and walled gardens are plain evil
@lumi the problem is we need some good, open source and decentralized alternative for it, cause these don't really exist
@selfisekai gotta work on it, then!
Whatever the pros and cons for relatively technical users, the discord audience don't care.
They want integrated voice, chat, and fun social spaces with minimal cost, financial and effort. IRC will never be that, and that's why discord has absolutely smashed IRC/Jabber and TeamSpeak/Vent/Mumble use in gaming.
