Hey everyone, in a bid to bring back alive our beloved chat community, I have created a Discord chat server for us. It is merely an experiment to see how many users will be interested and to see how many we can get in the server. It will also be an opportunity for you to test out the platform.
Scroll to the bottom to join the server.
If this becomes successful, I will create an official forum to propose the replacement of Wikia chat with a official CoD wiki Discord server, which would of course be owned and operated by a b'crat, and this server will be shut down afterwards.
Discord has proved success in bringing back multiple wiki chat communities, including the MLP Wiki, with 60+ users joined in a week.
For those who aren't sure what Discord is, Discord is a chat platform, similar to Skype, which offers text and voice chat. However there are many advantages of Discord over Skype and the wikia chat, which I'm going to briefly describe below.
- Reliability - Discord has proved to be very reliable, during my time on Discord (3 months), Discord has been down on one day only for a couple of hours.
- Multiple chat rooms - Discord's biggest advantage is the ability to create separate channels which act as separate chat channels. So you can easily help one out with wikia related stuff without being interrupted in the main chat.
- Custom emotes - Discord allows us to upload 50 of our own emotes, meaning we can add emotes from our current chat.
- Interactive bots - The bots on Discord are a lot more sophisticated and advanced. The bots can play games, be your music player and provide info.
