POL Discord Server.

Post by DevGIB » Wed Jul 05, 2017 3:46 am

EDIT:
SERVER LINK CAN NOW BE FOUND ON THE CHAT PAGE OF THE MAIN WEBSITE, REQUIRES FORUM LOGIN TO ACCESS
Not sure if there is one already(however i did search the forums and couldn't find a reference).
It might be a private server.
However i've created a public discord server.
If there are any POL staff/admins who would like admin access on the server either PM me here or on discord.

Without further ado the link: <EDITED>

In addition i'm open to ideas for channels if needed.

Thank you GIB,

I was going to suggest it too, I think its more user-friendly than the old irc channel.

why discordapp?
  • You can still read old messages later even if you disconnect. You can create an account and keep always up to date.
  • A lot of free shards are using discordapp to communicate with the community.
  • You can download the app for mobile phones and use it like whatsapp.
  • Admins can easily configure and manage their channel. Add bots to post new GitHub revisions, promote or ban players.
Ultima Online projects that use Discordapp too:
It would bring some fresh air and maybe more people to our community.

That's an interesting idea, I'll have a look into it. Is there any way to set up an IRC / Discord bridge?

Naa Discord doesn't have an IRC bridge that I know of. I myself have been a big proponent of IRC for a long time but over the last year or so I've been turned to Discord and i actually like it a lot.

There absolutely are discord <-> IRC bridges. I'll look at setting one up.

We had one for a previous ZULU server we were running and it lasted for a bit and then people were getting annoyed, eventually everyone migrated to discord.

Server link has been removed, you can now access the discord server by going to the Chat tab of the main website.
Please note that you'll need to be logged into the forums to access the discord server link.
