what in the world is a Discord group?
Discord is a new messaging app originally marketed for gamers. It is not so far off from UER's AvChat in concept except much more modern and sleek.
You join a "server" (for example, a uer server or an Atlanta exploring server). Within the server, mods create "channels" (just like any other chat app, eg Pacific Northwest, Southeast, etc.) . You can also create multiple voice channels to talk in (and they may have added video? haven't been on it much). Moderators can also use a host of bots and commands to automate a lot of the routine moderation.
It's very convenient for having a dedicated chat for large groups and then breaking up the discussion into smaller groups.
