Default TLS Discord (More better than Skype)

Because it's been mentioned many times in various sections, I went ahead and made a TLS Discord server. It makes chatting a hell of a lot easier than on Skype and the text chat is virtually the same, but with options for multiple channels.

https://discord.gg/qqGG2eb

Click clack the link to join. I made it with just a chat channel as well as one for FFXIV (requested elsewhere). If we want more channels it's no bother and I'll give people who are fussed permission to tweak with stuff. Do the thing.

Ooo, I've used Discord for XIV before, and thought it worked super well for that. Love the existence of multiple channels.

I made an account and tried to join, but it says the instant invite is invalid or has expired? Not sure what to do.

I think it overwrit when I tried to send a different one earlier. I updated the first post with one that shouldn't expire.

I joined; thanks for setting up. Ryu made a test server for us a couple of years ago last year but it never got much activity. Hopefully this attempt will stick.

So, I joined Discord and it seems very nice. Odd choice of name. Anyway, I have a question. When they asked me to confirm my email, they sent me this message:

"Wowwee! Thanks for registering an account with Discord! You’re the coolest person in all the land (and I’ve met a lot of really cool people).
Before we get started, we’ll need to verify your account. To do so, click on the comically large button below or click this link."

Is this the kind of message all the cool kids like these days? I can't ever feeling thrilled to get a message like this, not even when I was eight years old. It feels like it's trying way, way too hard - like Virgin mobile faux-matey messages ("Wow. Hi there! We really love you, so just chill and listen to these great tunes while we try to find someone who can talk to you." Three hours later.....) or tumblr letting me know I have a new follower. (Fourtitsandbuttcheeks started following you. Swoon! Love, tumblr).

Why are these messages so awful?

Those messages are awful and cringey.

Personally I like their loading messages when you boot up Discord. It's all gaming related like 'Smashing pots', 'delaying Half life 3' and there's bloody loads.
