An Unofficial CBB Discord Server

Post by Isfendil » 01 Jan 2017 00:51

This thread is the CBB base for the unofficial CBB Discord, a Discord server specifically for CBB Members. It was originally going to be temporary as I lack much time to moderate but I learned that things such as moderation and even bot creation and hosting can actually be outsourced to people and computers that are afforded with privileges, so I see no reason why it has to be transient anymore. It is still a new server so suggestions for improvement are welcome. If the CBB mods want to do something with it, and it isn't utterly horrible for everyone involved, I will be happy to oblige them. I will try to comply with forum rules.
If the CBB mods want to join the server and moderate it in accordance with forum rules, I will happily oblige them.

For those of you who do not know, Discord is a vastly improved IRC service with two different methods for built in voice chat and takes up very little memory/HDD Space.

Here is the link with which to join the unofficial server: https://discord.gg/XYfbRdH
This link will never expire but is only good for fifty one hundred uses, meaning one hundred people could join and then the link will become useless. If the link becomes useless and you want in, put a request on this subforum, and I will post a timed link as soon as I can.

The server already has fourteen or so CBB members and the speed of activity is rising.

I am mainly trying to counteract the slowness of the forums here a little, while also proposing an alternative to ... less savoury conlanging discord servers here, as the CBB generally tends to have decent folks.

Please, please, do NOT advertise for other conlanging discord servers, even if they are declaring themselves as affiliates for the CBB. This thread is specifically for this server and questions, requests, and so on that are related to it. There is already at least one other thread where options are being discussed, take advertisements for other communities there.

Thank you for reading this far. I hope that through this we can help to build a substantial extension of the CBB into another realm of digital space.

Thought I should put up a list of current members. If you see friends, consider joining them.

loglorn
Opipik
teranewtons
K123456789
Dezinaa
Ebon
ethan 石勤文
gestaltist
GrandPiano
Linguifex
OthEB
protondonor
umsyt
Wario Toad 32

We have had no incidents thus far but it's a little slow due to conflicting timezones making it so that few people are online at the same time. It would be nice if more people joined and sped things up.

Then by all rights I shouldn't like using it at all. Yet I do, how strange.

Honestly, gestaltist, you ahould just use discord for when you wish to discuss something, even I don't bother following everything that's going on. I have several servers on mute for this reason.

Also take in mind there is another thread for discussing discord, not this one.

You know, if you want people to actually be able to join this discord server, perhaps you should check the expired invitation link.

People test my patience sometimes.

The link has been replaced.

And to think, I -just- deleted the app from my phone since I rarely used it. Maybe now I should re-download it?

Can I get a link to join as well or is the other one still good?

The link has been replaced, it should work. If it does not, I'll send you one directly.

It does, I realized I clicked the dead one that was quoted above, not the one you edited in the OP.

It appears things on the server are finally picking up! I encourage those whove considered it to join now that it's finally reasonably active.

And it now also has a pretty logo (after several revisions) (courtesy of Thrice of course), so what reason is there not to join?

I get the impression that this has replaced the IRC channel as the de facto CBB chatroom, so I'm stickying this thread instead.

Perhaps it should be renamed The Unoffical CBB Discord Server?
