So, the forum is kind of inactive lately. We all know that. With that in mind, would there be any interest in making a Discord server? It'd be a way to communicate without the pitfalls of the old forum interface.

Personally, I'm not sure. Forums have an advantage of being able to divide discussion topics, and being able to serve as an archive. I don't think real-time chats can serve the purpose of, say, a giant archive of cameos in Nintendo games. Also not a fan of it breaking compatibility with my ancient Opera 12.18 browser.

On the other hand, it does have an advantage of having a dedicated program, and people can join whatever discussion here on the go without having to rely on a rather old browser-only website. At least, for as long as until some of us change phones and decide not to reinstall Discord.
