Anyone interested in a SW discord channel for all the weird tech and doctrinal arguments?

 

EDIT: it seems there’s a decent amount of interest, so here is a join link:

Mildly depressed confession: I am really not feeling a number of the server peeps’ determination to reinvent the wheel(s) WRT minimalism, Tarkin Doctrine uber alles, ‘little ships rek big ones ‘cuz NARRATIVE’, gaming stats taken at face value, etc.

then it is your patriotic duty to argue against bad logic, and fight brainbugs alongside the other comments section regulars wherever they appear on the server.

Good to know we can always count on DISCOMPNOR for morale reaffirmation.

I find myself somewhat overwhelmed by the format on Discord. The posting style here is much more methodical, and it’s easier to take the time to contemplate a reply without the discussion passing you by. My job requires me to spend long hours away from the Internet, so it’s very easy to get lost when trying to catch up on points that were covered hours earlier.

Agreed. Discord is fun for rapid fire q&a, memes, and general mayhem, but it is hard to compose a long-form rebuttal on issues of doctrine or science…. because someone posted 15 anime gifs in a row.

Hey, Fractal, would you be interested in moving some of the discussion to an extant SW forum? I can think of two candidates off the top of my head: the Rancor Pit started as a dedicated D6 RPG forum, but has changed ownership recently, and the new webmaster has opened up for more general Star Wars discussion. The other is the SWRPGNetwork / HoloNet, which is a ghost town these days because a log-in issue several years back (which has since been corrected) drove a lot of the traffic away. We’d practically have that one to ourselves.

Possible, but it might just be easier to reform discord by instituting rules, moderation, and creating channels dedicated towards a more high-effort style of posting.

Well, I have feelers out to the forum mods for info, if that’s something you decide you’re interested in.

The more anime memes I see, the more I understand why the NKVD was a thing.

The format is definitely different, discord and the like is more akin to old aol chatrooms or IRC chat, while this section is more akin to managed forums (and those forums still exist). The main plus (and minus) of it being the speed and picture/gif posting ability. I don’t think trying to make one platform more like the other would work in practice necessarily or would make anyone content. Its different crowds and content. The more static platforms like the forums or this section are definitely easier to use as reference than the fast moving chats on discord, but discord… Read more »
