Hi! I'm Raven. At this last meeting on 4/7, I asked a few members if there was a Discord or other kind of chat room where club people could connect. The replies held a certain note of uncertainty which sparked an idea. I'm not sure how welcome it would be but hey, you never know until you try, right?
At the moment, the internet has a number of chat room programs which range from awesome to 'kill it with fire'. One of the former is Discord. https://discordapp.com/ Available to use in a browser format, standalone desktop or phone app, iOS and Android-friendly, it offers a great deal of versatility for owners and moderators. Best part, totes free. It might be a suggestion for letting people get to know each other between conventions, gaming days, anime viewing times, etc.
There is of course, Slack but it's more business oriented.
Skype which thanks to MS' new ToS, likely wouldn't be privacy friendly.
Google Chat which can be limited and finicky.
WhatsApp which I'm not familiar with but I hear is trendy with the 18 and under.
Basically, there are options and I'm curious about what anyone thinks of using something like this to coordinate meetups in real time, sharing links to media more broadly and just digitally hanging out via text or voice or even facetime. For the artists, Discord and Skype support Screensharing to allow others to see what we might be working on if it's in a digital format.
Food for thought.
