    Discord is a cloud-based communication service similar to IRC, except allows voice interactions via VOIP. It has persistent rooms and other features we see within IRC & similar services.

    To connect to the UOF discord chat, use the following link: http://discord.uoforever.com

    You will be brought to the acceptance screen. Click the Accept Invite button to begin.

    From here, you will need to create a free account and verify it via email. Once logged in, you will be brought directly to the general chat room. Enjoy!

    Rules of DISCORD are STRICT - We can not monitor the chat 24/7 but all lobby chat is logged. If you see people breaking these rules please send us a pm and when we get to it we will handle it.

    RULES FOR UOFOREVER Discord Channel

    Scamming players through the use of DISCORD is bannable both in game and DISCORD!

    DISCORD is NOT your personal soapbox keep the drama in a Private Message

    Do not use this channel to produce negative attitudes towards the server/staff/players if you have an issue with the server contact the staff.

    No advertising any other server of any kind this includes script websites.

    Racial slurs is an instant ban.

    Constant Trolling, FLAMING or personal attacks will not be tolerated. Keep your childish name calling to yourself.

    Implying that you are staff or Impersonating staff will result in a ban from DISCORD and could result in a ban from the shard itself.

    Failure to follow these rules will result in banned from DISCORD.

    DISCORD is a privilege.

    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 IRC is very out of date in a lot of respects.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.

    God, I am so sorry this happened ,you are right of course. I suppose some gamers need babysitters.this should have been addressed by staff,

    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.

    i would prefer slack, having not tried discord.

    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.
