We're always exploring alternatives to Discord. It's a good platform, it's widely adopted and relatively stable. However we are at the mercy of a third party company. We'd prefer to host everything ourselves to ensure any userdata doesn't leak to third party providers who may sell, or datamine said data. We're eagerly following projects such as Revolt and to a lesser extent, Fosscord.
If/when this day arrives, it'll be communicated well in advance.
Upon joining you'll be presented with a Captcha, we hate bots - sorry.
There is a short list of server rules in #rules.
We expect everyone to abide by Discords Community Guidelines also.
