    Chat about MOTU on Discord?

    Hey folks,

    A couple of months back a bunch of people on the forums were clammering for the return of the "chat box" plug-in for vBulletin on the forums, the admins managed to get it up and working again but I've noticed that very few people are actively participating, despite there seemingly being quite some interest at the time.

    Part of the reason for that I feel is that a lot of people these days are using their tablets or phones to browse forums and unfortunately (at least for me as an iOS user) the chat function does not seem compatible. I am assuming that's the case for many of you who would otherwise be active on the chat.

    At the time I suggested the use of Discord, something many of you probably haven't even heard of.

    What is Discord?

    Well, to put it quite simply, it's a bit of an amalgamation of different things. It's a bit compareable to Messenger, Whatsapp or Line, which some of you may be familiar with, as it's an instant messaging platform that can be accessed both in app form on your phone or tablet but also in-browser on your desktop.

    Where it differs a lot to those platforms however is that you have complete anonimity, much like on a forum you select a nickname. Unlike Whatsapp for example where everyone would see your phone number or Facebook where everyone would see your real name. So it's a lot more like old school chatrooms or forums in that sense.

    Another big point of difference is that Discord doesn't work with groups like how these other platforms work, Discord works with severs just like how old chat platforms. And like those you have different 'rooms' within those server, much like you have different sections/categories on a forum.

    The big difference from forums is obviously that Discord is an instant messenging server/chat application rather than just "posting" like on a forum or Twitter.

    A few more notes, you do NOT need to install an app, on desktop you can just go to discordapp.com and in the top right you'll see a button "chat", you'll have to register obviously but that will give you access to the browser version of the platform (I prefer to use this over the app whenever I'm on my PC).

    As for those of you who don't mind downloading an app, just look for "Discord" in the Apple or Googly Play stores and download.

    So do you want to join the "MASTERS TALK" server? I've created it a few days ago and right now it's just me and one other Eternian from Facebook, so come keep us company and be social!

    I created channels for some of the major podcasts such as Roast Gooble Dinner, Masters Cast, Fans of Power, BattleCast, Council of the Firsts ones, etc. for people to discuss their shows! Aswell as a Toy section, media section and comic section! Again, it's basically like a forum only in instant messaging form!

    I hope to see many of you on there, below is the invite link to the server which is open to anyone!

    I believe if the Mods agree to pin this thread to attract chatters that would be great.

    Alright folks, I know some of the people who are currently in lockdown are bored at the moment, the great thing about chatroom is no need for social distancing without each members here. Hop in to try it out and hang out with other fans. I maybe a little more slow but only you can enlarge the commmunity.

    I've given up on the chat room, as much as I pushed for it. I've logged on almost dozen times and no one is ever there. I fondly look back a couple of years ago when it was a packed chat room. I don't know what happened, but it makes me sad. I miss the one-on-one real time interaction with fans. I miss it a lot.

    UPDATE:

    And for the record, Fendi, on your advice I logged into the chat room. No one was there...again.

    Oh, there's people in the Discord channel, Jack. You can Mentioned the username like @Fendi in there, if you mentioned my name by using the at sign symbol (@), you definitely can ring me instantly if I'm active.

    I also disable chat messages notification on every channel I joined in Discord so I only rely on mentions if someone really wanna talk to me or want me to join the conversation.

    I'm so low tech that I wouldn't know the first thing about how to get there or what to do once I arrived...

    Well, here's the link of the Discord. https://discord.gg/spZNd5 which you can chat on the browser or you can download the application called: Discord there so you can easily login into the software when you start up your PC.

    and like this site, you have to register to a new discord account to make things easier. But there's no blocking/can use regular email on site registration.

    in a nutshell:

    1. click Discord link above

    2. register your discord account

    3. You can chat on Discord Windows

    4. or you can download the software which is this link. https://discordapp.com/download

    5. Start chatting.
