 DCAC Chat Room?, Ways to keep in touch more easily!

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.

Thanks! <3

This is a small FAQ covering the social Discord channel used for DCAC which can be connected to via this Discord Link. For a more comprehensive outline of Discord, please refer to the app’s homepage.

What is Discord?
  • Discord is a free voice and text chat app. Light, secure and quick, it’s presently used by over 14 million people. One of which could be you!
Why should I use Discord?
  • Privacy: No need to share any contact information you do not wish to while getting to know others.
  • Functionality: Easy to copy+Paste or Drag+Drop information, links and images to share with others instantly. Link your Discord account to Twitch, Youtube and more.
    Community: While face to face is best, life doesn’t always allow for us to attend meetings, offer suggestions or get to know more about our fellow members.
    Connection: Chat rooms can be fun. Places to freely share ideas at our leisure, arrange to meet to hang out or just find new friends.
Do I have to install it on my computer?
  • Not at all! Discord can be run from a web browser, no installation needed. Certain features won’t be available via a browser such as push to talk but the open mic is available. If the standalone client is wanted, Discord is available for computer, phone, and various OS. Don’t wish to talk? Just type!
Is it complicated?
  • No, using Discord is as easy as opening it and typing. Want to send a file? Drag and drop it in the chat. Sending a screenshot is as easy as Copy+Paste. Both Voice and Screen Sharing is smooth whether talking to one or more people.
Can I invite friends?
  • Guests can come and check out the DCAC Chatroom to see if they might like to join the group. We’d hope that those invited would be fellow lovers of all things DCAC encompasses!
