A proposition to try out the uber new promo cool thing called "Discord".
As suggested by Wonderman, we could try out Discord, it's free, unlimited server slots always will be free and has a lot of functions teamspeak doesn't and it says it's great for gaming!!
SO what are we waiting for?!

Join us on https://discord.gg/0gu7dxm3yI5DgdPd !!

You should try it really, come to the server now.

Quality is much better, you have direct messages, history of messages so it could be our little boards. Don't bash it if you didn't try it please, just join

I do not see how quality is better when they are using the Opus codec. Its poor quality and draws more bandwidth. We use Speex Ultra-Wideband on the TS which runs at a much higher bitrate with less cost of bandwidth. So I do not see how quality is better.
When it comes to messages it doesn't really concern me as I do not intend to use that anyways.

However, since you are so eager about it, I can try it whenever I get time, but I doubt its close to the quality of TS

After further research; Discord isn't a bad concept. Even though it runs on Opus, the sound quality is decent. The chat system and the GUI is also quite good.
It may remind of a mix of TS3 and Skype. It does also not require you to install the client as you can join through a browser. Only problem is that there currently is no system for permanent Human-Readable links.

If our community is interested, we might migrate to this system, but I will need to know that our whole community is willing, meaning I want to know who is up or not for this.
All clan members shall answer here whether they are interested or not.

The concept is good, but I still prefer Teamspeak as discord still has some problems and you can't have a fixed address for joining the server. It's a no from me, but if everyone else wants to use it I'll accept it.


Hodor!

I agree with Hodor on the issue with there being no fixed address/permanent link.
The discord service is currently in its alpha build and may be lacking, but the concept is good though

We do not allow HTML injection through our forums, so nobody would be able to see that.
However, I decoded the HTML and made it a picture so that people may see the preview of it:

i don't actually see the point of changing clients from ts, we got something that works (if sayarons pc doesn't explode).
