Trying to gauge interest in an idea...

Postby undefinedprocess » 08 Jan 2021 10:15

Alright, I'll keep this short and simple, so y'all don't have to read through a long post before you yell at me and tell me if this is a stupid idea or not.
I, myself, am way too obsessed with following development around DFW, and would love to have a more casual way of discussing it & other various topics with everyone. I view this forum as more of a place where I want to see/post things that are "post-worthy," and can/will/should be referenced in the future, that way, we don't have to rely on Steve Brown, you know?

Anyways, not sure if there's any of you on here who are a little younger like myself, but I've been debating creating a Discord server to somewhat mirror this forum for awhile now. I like the idea of more candid/casual/quicker conversation, as well as the possibility of voice calls/chats, as y'all are really the only "people" in my life that I can discuss this stuff with. Nobody around me has any interest whatsoever in development, construction, etc., so...

Anyways, y'all please let me know if you have any interest in this, as I'd love to be able to discuss all this stuff with y'all on a different platform (but not take away from the forum). As I said, just a bit more of a candid/quick platform to use.

(If you're confused as to what Discord is, or what I'm talking about & have any questions, drop 'em below.)

And if this is a stupid idea/post, let me know. Not wanting to take anything away from the forum, really just want to add another level to it (ish?). Also, this post is long now, and I said it wouldn't be. Shit.

What is Discord? :D
Nevermind, I'm probably 'way too old.

I'd be up for Discord. I haven't used it before, but I'm always up to have additional venues for discussion. I don't know that I have related to a statement as much as this one in some time:

Nobody around me has any interest whatsoever in development, construction, etc., so...


Anywho, thanks for throwing the idea out there!

Yeah, I'm sure some people would definitely be interested. I'd do it.

Alright, so there’s some interest, glad to hear that... For those of you who do know what Is Discord is, I’ll ask you this question and you’ll basically be answering on behalf of those who aren’t familiar with it.
I already have my own Discord server I’ve built (empty, really in progress) that has channels for all the different things I’m interested in (photography, development, tech, etc.). Would y’all just want a channel or two in there dedicated to development/construction/etc. chat, or should I/would you prefer an entirely new server dedicated to DFWU? Please let me know, thanks! :)

Hmm, okay, so maybe just a couple of channels within my pre-existing server? Thank you for your replies, I appreciate them! :mrgreen:
