For the record you can right-click the server you're on and set your nick for the server, so maybe we should make it so that people have to use their forum name or at least put it in brackets?

We can ask people to do that but I don't think it should be a requirement. As I said, it's a public server. If people want to come chat with us without signing up to the forum (maybe we'll persuade them to sign up from Discord) that's fine by me.

I suggest it's a requirement.

Yeah, it's just fucking weird if people don't introduce themselves.

I mean, we can add a "welcome" channel with a command that allows people to set a server-specific nickname, and it should be theoretically possible (though I'm not sure) to make it so that people can't post anything until they've done that.

I definitely get the frustration from not knowing who people are but I have no strong opinions one way or the other about whether or not we should put these measures into practice, I'll leave that up to group consensus. I would prefer that people use their forum name or referenced it in some way, but I'm not against people joining that channel through other means. People referencing their forum names being a requirement would help us distinguish who is and isn't already a forum member though, which would be useful for a number of reasons (a feeling of security among them).

I'm never going to get over how the Discord log looks like Mickey Mouse's butt or crotch.

^ wtf

We have options here:
  1. Make it a private server for people on the forum (I'm against this)
  2. Keep it as a public server but require people to use their forum name if they have one (okay, but we'd need a way of enforcing it)
  3. Keep it as a public server but ask people to use their forum name if they have one (basically our current arrangement; you can always choose not to talk to someone if you don't know who they are)
  4. Verify people on the forum by giving them a custom role (a bit fiddly but certainly possible)
  5. Do 4 and then set up a verified-people-only channel (call it #TLS?)

It feels like the easiest option is #5. That way we can have a general channel that we can link non-forum users to as well. Everything else feels kinda cliqueish which leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I don't object to non TLS users in the chat, but people should introduce themselves properly otherwise it's like having a stranger sit down at your table in the pub when you're with your friends.

Is anyone actually doing that?

I mean the only case of confusion and awkwardness thus far was just Fangu not recognizing 1 person , and Tel being Tel for like an hour.

Doing a cursory look down the member list on the Disc i can recognize like 98% of the usernames there too. Seems like a problem that doesn't actually exist imo.

Furthermore I don't think it would be that awkward anyway? Chat services, and especially Discord are kind of freeform like that. If someone is in the TLS discord I'm comfy around them just because I know one of you guys gave them the link to get in etc.

Not gonna jump to making things awkward because "zomg i dont know your username"

I understand that there could be issues with someone being a troll but that' really really easy to catch and fix, and in with option 5 that Flint suggested all the bases seemed covered.

I'm not exactly seeing the issue here tbh.

I dunno. It's been a while since I've experienced that personally, as I hardly ever go on the chats. I know it has happened in the past though. Even pre-Tel

Lol? .

I prefer knowing who people are too, but it ain't like I'm sharing sensitive information, unless it is to those that hack my account information (see above) .

I have noted that my appearance in Discord seems to be compared to that of the birth of Christ in a way that it has been used as a reference point of time.

As such, I will be writing a strongly worded letter to the UN for a new calendar era system-thing. They are:

Before Telcontar Era (BTE) and Telcontar Era (TE).

I would appreciate the immediate adoption of these new terms in this forum first, to act as a sort of... testing ground for the UN, before they make their way to the mainstream.

Stop speaking in hashtags, it makes you look stoopid

As for a button, a "wat" button would be nice, using . Some channels like Facebook and Slack have 'reactions' nowadays, giving people a more varied way to make low-effort replies to comments. Might be something to look into for next forum software (ha)
