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 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.
AgreedI am traditional! Hive chat. it had good old days. Screw Discord
How could you- you should've found it sooner!
Don't let the disrupting force of Discord corrupt you, Naze!Regarding interaction, I feel like the Hive chat is more open for an unpretentious "hey, how's life going?" and general nonsense. Which I often enjoy when I hop chat (rarely, I admit =P).
I might be wrong but I have this feeling that Discord is for a more... objective conversation. I also enjoy it, but personally it's not like Hive chat, where I enter to chill a little. I can get more used to it with time, nonetheless.
I think for somebody with damn this:@Naze The Discord is for whatever you want; a *lot* of people use it for "random stop by & chat" stuff like you describe.
Also, there are sub-channels, so you can sort of 'keep to one side' and not disrupt whatever... "more objective" conversations may be going on. : ) #general_chat is probably a fine place for it.
Hahaha! Good one man!NSDAP ( No Silly Discord App Please )
I thought Archian also a dev * laugh *.... (I mean you're both from Denmark, Andreas)I'm on Discord every day and almost never visit Hive chat.
Also, as I'm the sole developer, being one day able to get rid of Hive chat would reduce the codebase I have to maintain. I still feel fondly for the chat though...
THE MESSAGE FROM KING HIMSELF!dont use either
This is one of my biggest issues. I'm even personally culpable; I go by my "everywhere-else-on-the -Internet" username of 'Khyrberos'. (Still, I try to mitigate that a bit by using an identical avatar).I liked thw chat better when there were chat moderators.
Discord is alright, especially if you use the voice chat to play warcraft with.
Only problem I see with discord is that with the custom screen names, you can't identify everyone at first glance, making conversation with such a big group a little awkward maybe.
Uh. We track your guys' IPs to stop multi-accounting and bot spam farms whereas Discord obscures their users IPs. So this is really the opposite of what you're thinking.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 mean even the old members who used to frequent the chat use discord. Bob, Pyritie, ShiiK, [email protected], Hindy, Dio, RDZ, ike_ike, wereguy etc etc. But I'm getting off-topic heh.I like the hive's chat, it's a quiet place for olde members.
