***CHAT USERS: Please weigh in here***

It has been suggested that Chat be moved offsite to Discord. I personally don't know much about it, but I know a lot of people using for gaming chat and such. You'll have to register, but you can check it out here.

https://discord.gg/9RQQJXe

From my perspective, the main advantages of it are:
  • It's not on our server, so it won't lag or go down during games.
  • It's more modern, so you can do things like direct messages, images, attachments, etc.

On the other hand:
  • There's no direct integration, so everyone will have to manually create an account if you don't already have one.
  • Usernames won't translate from CP, so you might not be able to tell who is who.
  • It's a completely separate system, and the CP mods have no control over it, so it's kind of a free for all.

I personally don't care - I'm only an occasional chat user anyway - so whatever most of you chat users want, I'm fine with. If most people would prefer giving Discord a try, I'll change the link in the header.

Concur.

I don't use chat that much, but if it comes to that, I might consider it. That being said, I'm still set in my own ways on using the game thread.

How bad can the lags get on gameday in chat?
Same as game threads generally.

I've never used Discord but not afraid to try it after the Superbowl. I do like chat on gameday.

I have a feeling that if/when the Chiefs make the SB that the site is probably going to go down. Maybe try using Discord for a trial run next week and see how everyone likes it. Isnt there a Discord app?

Yeah, there's an app.

If Discord isn't the answer, there are a variety of other options out there for hosted chat rooms. Unfortunately, the good ones generally have fees of around $20/month, but that might be doable if we get a handful of people to pitch in $10 per year or something.

Hey Face. Might not be a bad idea to put the invite link in the OP as well. Encourage people to look.

Don't be so afraid of change guys. At least give discord a chance. You've got to be tired of not being able to post when the game thread blows the server up.

Discord is pc and phone friendly. Very easy to use.

Non-chat person here. I don't really care what is done but I'm wondering what impact chat has on the server during game day?

Much less than posting in the game thread, but it has some impact.

Is the discord active?

I will try it out today, but i like an active chat. The CP chat doesn't work for me anymore because we have no computer, just mobile and tablet.

I use the gameday thread when im streaming the game so i dont know about stuff before it happens, as the stream lags 40 seconds or so behind.
