    I really don't think Skype is great for group chats anymore, especially in gaming communities. So, I decided to create a Discord server under the New Sims Online name. Discord offer permissions, embedded video, pics, and links, ect... As well text and voice channels to narrow down any topics. The nice feature is it's also available on mobile for free with the exact same UI.

    Wow, discord's really taking off. I hope they're not doing anything shady to keep it alive until they get out paid themes...

    On that note, since the desktop app is literally just a chromium window, it's possible to inject css hacks to make the layout more conservative. Here's a simple css replacement hack I wrote a few weeks ago to make things more bearable:
    https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/131166361761087488/139161549255344128/discordmod3.zip

    Extract to %appdata%/../Local/Discord/app-0.0.283

    Makes the channel bar hide below a specific width, and makes messages shorter in general. Also replaces https://discordapp.com/assets/9a2aa596faed1aa0ce218d1c4b9af279.svg
    with its true form: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12239448/8Ol.svg

    I'll have to try that theme!
    Let's hope they aren't.
    Gitbook, Atom, Visual Studio Code, Discord, ect... I'm finally starting to see why you find web technologies so appealing. Then again I was kinda drawn to it back when Chrome OS was announced but it was way ahead of it's time to be of any use back then.

    Teamspeak feels better for me and my friends (big servers, easier management), but Discord is much better for chats (TS really falls apart there). Loving the UI too, the dark colours sooth my eyes and reduce power consumption.

    If you want to Discord to detect FreeSO, open the Options menu and click on the Games tab.

    Sorry for the briefly taking the public link down. Things were getting a little out of hand.

    Seems a little strange that as soon as Zack leaves it becomes official...

    Because the ownership was transferred to me, the project leader... This isn't strange at all.

    Fair enough, but Zack was staff, and you had full permissions, so nothing has really changed.
    Either way, I don't want to start a debate now, so I'll end it here.

    Zack was the owner, but he was not on the FreeSO moderation team. Therefore it was not official. There's no "debate" in the first place.

    You're only saying that cos you got banned! When there was a voice chat you joined it with mic muted too. :rolleyes:

    Actually you just left at the wrong time. My voice is a beautiful, handsome, deep, soothing British voice, and I proceeded to stun the whole chat with my amazing sounds*

    Maybe a warning label that your Discord links may expire woulda been nice. Just a suggestion for next time.
