    I don't know where to post this. Off-Topic is probably the best place.
    So.. As simple as it may seem, I'm just wondering, which one do you prefer most?

    Hive Chat or Discord? And the reason. :)

    I chose hive chat because it doesn't track my location, as far as I know, and it brings more traffic to the hive and helps their advertising.

    I personally prefer Hive Chat because I'm kinda used to the vibe there and many things happened there in the past.
    Plus, it links to the user's profile so I can check out the ones i'm chatting with right way and everyone there is definitely members of the Hive.

    The only downside is it doesn't keep the chat history so as soon as you get disconnected, everything disappears and you miss some of messages. But I can live with that-

    Hive Chat because @San.

    Once Discord has replaced Hive Chat entirely (it already has for the most part since now no one bothers going to Hive Chat anymore), there'll be no more San.
    That'll be some shitty day.

    Discord. Hive Chat is dead for me, becouse I'm not Hive veteran for 20 years, so nobody give a damn about me. While on Discord I can feel myself more comfortable.

    Hive Chat, because the stench of a corpse is wonderful. Not to mention that when Hive Chat truly dies, Sansa San will follow. And like Slavemaster Shar Shar Binks said, that will be one black day. I'm already sad, actually.

    Edit
    And oh, I like how messages turn green when I'm mentioned. Always wanted that in more IMs, because fuck reading walls of texts. Like this one. Bla bla bla. You can stop reading now. Seriously. Stop. Get moving. Stop it. LEAVE ME ALONE!

    @Arowanna yeah but when someone @'s you in discord, it highlights the whole message.

    The time I had in the Hive chat, even though it wasn't that much, was very enjoyable.
    I feel like a discord channel is not as personal as a website chat, but maybe that is just me.
    I just love the style the Hive has, for me it is the best designed Website I've ever used and that goes for the chat too.
    Gotta admit tho that I haven't been in the chat for a very long time. Still a bit sad that it isn't used as much these days!

    Discord is awexome, has a dedicated mobile app, works amazing with loads of features & cool stuff, keeps track of conversations with History & Searching & Pinning, organizes discussion with Channels & Sub-Channels & Roles...

    C'mon Hive Chat. Just die already.

    And links to user's profile. Things that probably are irreplaceable. :(

    Chat colors might be added.

    Rank icons and links to user's profile are for now not possible.
