We need a Discord Server

We need a Discord Server

Title says it all. It would be very useful to have text chat, and IRC is a bit dated.

Since SuperTux is an open-source project, and Discord is proprietary freeware, it might be better to have a Mumble server instead: https://wiki.mumble.info/wiki/Main_Page

There are also some Mumble server hosts available, though I have personally never used any: https://wiki.mumble.info/wiki/Hosters
I make Let's Play videos of FOSS games. You can find them on DTube and VidLii. I have also made a few small Free Software games, available on my GitHub page.

IRC works, if you prefer something more modern, join us via Riot.im in #supertux:matrix.org

brmbrmcar, please do not spread information that looks to be official when it is not.

Magellan argues very well, proprietary chat protocols are unsuitable for open source projects.

Better?
Yes, open source things are better, but nothing matches the usability of Discord right now unfortunately. The point of having a Discord in my view is to make it easy to talk with other people than IRC and other chats. I cannot use Matrix anymore because the account system is stupid.

Hmm, as long as it is unofficial, I have no problem with one. Officially, we still have irc and such, and I see no need to switch.
The link above should be clear enough it isn't official?
Some people are like slinkies... not really good for anything, but you still can't help smiling when you shove them down the stairs.
