    Lightbulb Discord?

    Not sure if this would go here, so if not feel free to move/lock/etc. But I was thinking it might be fun to have an Aarinfantasy discord server? Kind of a condensed version of the site? I'm not sure how many people on here use discord or their experience with it, but I've found it to be useful and is a little more intimate in terms of chatting with others.

    These days I am so rarely here on the forum because I am too busy with my dual studies/RL but I am usually on discord so to me it sounds like a good idea in general, but it'd also mean more work to do to make it official, involving Aarin and Mods OR it will only be a fanmade server but without official context but then it could be any private server. The idea is nice but I wonder if there are ressources to even make it official when the site itself fights to survive with donations, the site should come first I think

    Yup I can only agree with brona here
    Besides that many users sure left the forum, because they found other social media plattform such as tumblr. And that separates everyone a bit from this cosy family kinda place. And if there‘s gonna be a discord server I‘m sure they‘ll be even less activity here...
    And to ad something more; discord feels so cold in my eyes. No individual personality to share, just text and your ava. Here it’s livelier that you can show: such as sets, profiles with personal wall, cards to show your favorite characters and much more idk if it’s just me and has the grumpy mind of an old lady who thinks „it’s better if it’s stays the way it is now“ (my german fellows sure know which meme I‘m referring toXD) Anyway I‘ll find it sad to see more and more go away from this forum

    Hi hi, I started using discord for a game about 2 years ago till last September when I quit that game.
    After that, I hardly use it anymore.
    It was alright I guess and I had a few people who actually suggested to me about an AarinFantasy discord some time ago... was really thinking about it but I also agree that if people start going there, I think the activities here will be even lesser. Of course there are pros and cons for forum and also Discord. But for now, I will not be opening anything on Discord.

    But you can definitely add others from here in Discord should you want to just chat intimately or something.
    ^_^

    Thank you though for suggesting!~

    I won't say I will never open a channel there at Discord, it really depends on how the site's gonna go and what direction I am heading... I would like to do more if I can, but I faced so many unfortunate situations in 2019 (not forum related) that I keep stepping back. Thought 2020 will be better but now my country (Malaysia) is having some Coronavirus cases, and I've to be more alert. I hope everyone stay safe!

    I totally understand wanting to keep the community here active and think that is important as well! I appreciate everyone input!

    Thanks Aarin.
    Most importantly: Stay safe!!

    As for the discord suggestion:
    I've personally asked Aarin about this before and I understand where she's coming from.
    There is a real chance that activity here would drop even more, but at the same there is a chance that it might spike up again. I'm just thinking about people talking over there "Hey, have you seen that post by XXX on thread XXX??"
    Would encourage people to chat more and maybe even come up with some new contests or something.
    Then again, I personally use Discord a lot and am online most of the time, which would make it easier to keep in touch with certain people.
    But another thing I talked with Aarin about is the fact that it would create more work for her or Mods as it would need to be monitored. Of course there are bots and such, but nothing beats good old human common sense.

    All in all, I think it's not as easy as to just create a server and hope for the best. Yet again, I personally would be in favor of a server, but I will accept what ever Aarin deems better
