The annoying thing is Discord does not have a Chrome app, so I will have to keep a window open when I am editing in my Chromebook.

Unlock Requests - MAR Discord Server

Postby DCLemur » Mon Sep 11, 2017 5:11 pm

I haven't seen anything formal posted about using the UNLOCKS channel as well. (In HO, we just posted in main section) For now, I am going to post the full request in the UL channel AND post a note in main channel (VA for this request) which should at provide a note in the GHO as well. **FYI - There appears to be no syncing of Discord UL requests to GHO -- of course, don't know how you would separate out the states.

Appreciate comments & feedback.

I have found Discord to be very useful... and feel it will grow even more so as we get accustomed to the platform. As with anything, there will be some growing pains, but nothing we can't handle.

The app in the previous message is for Chromebook only because that is what he was looking for.

There are downloads for other platforms on https://discordapp.com/download. Or search in whatever place you would normally find apps for whatever platform you're interested in. Personally, I just use a tab in a web browser, so I can't vouch for or against any of them.

I've found discord to be a very suitable replacement for GHO. Google has said that it is phasing out GHO for public use, and focusing on using it for enterprise users (schools, business, gov't). Whereas Discord seems to growing new features everyday.

I'm in favor of transitioning over.

As a note, I've added some notices to the MD wiki page at the top and under 'Community', feel free to steal them for other states in the region.

I think this was shared in chat, but put the link here for future reference:
