Obviously not for access from the public forums, but would there be any interest in creating a discord server for the forums? It could make meeting up and working plans together quickly nice and easy :v
The group I explore with has a Discord which includes other peeps in and around Toronto. It would be cool to see a UER-wide channel implemented, and I'd be down to help make that happen. However, my personal concern is that having a Discord server can take away from site activity. I've seen this happen on other old and less-active forums. I would ultimately leave it up to the discretion of Avatar-X and the mod team.
