You can put it in your information tab, or your signature. Better than nothing :P

Is discord one of those passing fad communication protocols? I will give that it is probably more useful than ICQ (which is in there) at this point but if we did add things for every passing fad protocol and social network (you can have my bebo account name if you like) it would get annoying.

It seems like it, you see anyone else around with that?

And about it being a passing fad, it a matter of opinion. Not everything last forever. I'm sure 5 years later a new thing will outdo discord, and then now everyone wants that.... (not really everyone. Just whoever wants it. Is like a evolution religion) IF FAST things it a fad, is his observation. :teach:

I have no great observation or any data, only anecdotal and that is no good for anything here. At the same time I have seen plenty of things like this blow up and then turn to dust time after time and chasing them on forums gets to be a pain for no great gain. I do however know it has thus far failed to penetrate the business or in many cases general user markets and if it is just games then we have been here before with teamspeak, ventrillo, mumble and the list goes on.

Equally "I'm sure 5 years later" -- 5 years would be an amazing lifetime for a piece of software like this. Were it to be that then the hassles of adding it to the contact page and sorting it during forum upgrades and such like would probably be well worth it. The turnabout on these things is often in the 5 months range though.

I will agree that am probably overly cynical and that has resulted in me dismissing most such things for my personal use, to then stick with IRC and email (they are there, the are on everything, it takes a lot of extra layers but they still work however many decades on this is), and maybe missing out on a lot but ultimately feeling smug when it all goes down in flames or just becomes a skeleton factory.

    Not really, switch games have a pretty good hud and ui for the size, steam deck depends, fortunately some games allow to increase the HUD and UI.

    You can play both Series X and PS5 on portable devices. Including on your steam deck.
