    Is discord going to be moderated like the forums here? I have seen some really toxic people on it. Might not be the best reflection of the UOF community for a new player joining the shard.

    Kael, although that may be true...the plain fact is they will eventually see it anyway...why sugarcoat the truth,since there is no point in it. People will show you who they are . then you just deal with it. So far I have not seen anything too bad. and it is way better than IRC in my opinion.

    dont see much difference. both have the middle column that everyone chats in. both have right side colum with users online, both have channels to the left.
    you can turn off link images in the settings
    here is a link you can download different skins

    I think discord is a way better alternative, honestly. IRC is very out of date in a lot of respects.

    When a few peoples whole conversation target is making fun of someone's wife passing away it certainly is not the reflection you want to provide of the shard. Whether it is true or not, this type of behavior just shouldn't happen. Don't get me wrong, I think guilds fighting back and forth on the forums (or discord) about fights is great entertainment and is one of the main reasons I actively follow them. An active forum to me means an active shard. Some level of taste still needs to be adhered to though.

    Actually, I like IRC through irccloud the best, but IRC is no where near as simple for the average person to setup due to client configuration and registering of nicks.

    It wasn't directed at me. Just think personal attacks of that nature just shouldn't happen. Keep it about the game that's all.

    You are absolutely right...If it is NOT game related, It should never be used to attack someone never.

    Slack isn't really ideal for what we need this for. Slack is more of a office/team communication tool. I used it shortly at my job, but we quickly got rid of it.
