Hello Lains, I have created a server on Discord for "intelligent and interesting" discussions,
I am now searching for members as the server is really small as for now.
I thought that Lainchan would be a good place.
I'm hoping for the server to become a place where all the creative ideas can be shared.
There is also complete freedom of speech.
The discussions include philosophy, programming, games, some occasional memes and more.
Here is the invite

Discord, yes. It might not be the best in its design, but it isn't soykafty and it is popular. Discord has a big community. Rejecting Discord means rejecting the community.


>Discord, yes. It might not be the best in its design, but it isn't soykafty
"Hmm, I want to talk cyberpunky things with smart people. Should I DIY something unique with something open and secure and self-hosted? Nah, I'll just use a closed service run by a company partially owned by 'we're best buds with the Chinese government' Tencent and 'We're the epitome of the corporate entertainment industry' Time Warner! That's cool and hip and underground!"

>and it is popular.

So's herpes.

>Discord has a big community.

So does Peppa Pig.

>Rejecting Discord means rejecting the community.

Sounds win-win to me.


I think you do not understand that the server is not only for cyberpunky things, its just in generally for smart people. Obviously if the server was only for Lainchan I would host it on IRC or Matrix. Discord is the best bet if I want to invite smart people, because I seriously doubt that any people who do not care about cyberpunk or anything similar will want to install better alternatives just to join there.


>hurr durr only my small community which specializes in technology is smart
>people who don't care about technology that much must be stupid


>huh not all smart people care about technology so I must use a botnet service otherwise they wouldn't join me


Well, that is what I was saying from the very beginning.
Close yourself in your echo chamber if you want.
Also from what I know Discord isn't really that much of a "botnet". I have read their privacy policy and while it might be a bit fishy, it doesn't seem like your typical "botnet".


you're probably going to lose more people by using it, at least here
the definition of botnet it's on their "privacy" policy

Hmm, you might be right, for some reason I believed they didn't share the data with the third parties.
Still, I'd say it's kinda sad to just leave all those potential people.


it's kinda sad that people keep feeding those monsters with their data too

None of those corporate free-service fuckers can be trusted. Do you think Tencent and friends invested millions into Discord out of the kindness of their hearts? No, they did it because they want to get more money out than they put in. Discord has mass amounts of monetizable user data and no user fees. I think their long-term plan is pretty obvious.


lainchan is a special type of c i r c l e j e r k


Because the invite has 9/10 uses as for now, here is another one:

There is also a secret
channel on the artificial intelligence Discord server. If you would like access, just PM a founder (both lains) and they will give you the hidden lambda role. or


>intelligent and interesting


>hey lains just join this SIGINT C&C server, stop asking questions already


Discord is closed-source trash.
