It would make more sense to keep all the TLS stuff on one server IMO. The issue is that people are only chatting in one channel.

We definitely use it a lot for FFXIV, though the channels are separated for a reason; people can use both the chit chat text and voice chat without getting in the middle of XIV chat.
It's convenient for all of us on the game but the Skype social convo still seems to be going strong so I guess people would rather chit chat there. Either is fine.

Yeah but the problem is, people I have no idea who are keep popping into the Chit Chat. And while that's not a problem in itself, because new people are GREAT, it feels old to keep asking them 'are you on TLS?' 'Who are you on TLS?' (should I even bother asking anymore?) (do they even know what TLS is?) because it makes it feel like it isn't really a TLS server

The best way to stop it from becoming a XIV guild is if more non-XIV players chat there. Like me! I'm on it every day.

I don't see the logic in moving back to Ryu's test server (10 people) now that we've established the TLS server (29 people and counting).

Edit: To your latest post, I know who all but one of those 29 people are. The one I don't know is "Honey". It would be nice if people identified themselves when they joined, but we can't really expect it or enforce it since it's a public server. Same goes for the Skype chat – why advertise it on the front page if we don't want strangers there?

^ Yeah but we're fairly sure the people who come into the Skype chat entered through a link from TLS. Right now it feels like (to me anyway, I might be wrong) that there's a bunch of XIV players who pop into 'chit chat' completely unaware that it's actually meant to be a TLS chit chat*. Again, I might be wrong

* Isn't that how we meant to set it up since this 'chit chat' was meant to replace Skype?

Also Ryu's server has been dead for like a year, no wonder it's just 10 people

Well there you go I said I might be all wrong about it.

In case there's any confusion, everyone that's on the Discord (for either FFXIV or the ChatChit) is an established forum user. There's nobody just from the game, we're pretty much all from here.

I'm on Discord and Skype Because some people on Skype never made a Discord account so I go back and forth to chat. Also I chilled out on the XIV voice channel because that's the only voice channel used even though I don't play the game, and it was cool, I don't think anyone minded me (not like I said much, just wanted to hang out )

Sometimes I get caught up on the names of the channels, so like I pretty much stayed outta the XIV one and stuff cuz I don't have the game and didn't want to intrude. But I was brave enough to ask if I could chill in the voice chat for it and realized I'm just shy, it's not like you can only join the chat if you play XIV.

I think someone mentioned in the Discord chat that there should be a 'welcome' channel, where every new joiner is supposed to introduce themselves to.

There's a FFXIV dedicated Discord thing that has a bot which adds you to certain channels once you identify your class; maybe (if we put in some effort) we could do the same thing for the TLS discord?

Or just make it a rule that your name on there should equal your TLS name.
