    What is Discord?

    Discord is an all-in-one voice and text chat that’s free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. It does not require payment for TeamSpeak servers and hassling with Skype. It also has a much more user friendly GUI than IRC and supports file uploads, photo postings, and voice chat along with multiple channels which a community such as ours is in need of. Simplify your life by choosing to talk on discord.

    How much does it cost to use?
    It's 100% free. Free to run, to make an account, and to use.

    Why would I use this over IRC
    Simplicity and features mostly. IRC is still great in its own way, but Discord represents the future of online chat. If you want quick help, to view all chat history, and have all your different text channels in one easy to access place, Discord is the way to go. Picture and file uploads, emoji reactions, etc. Not to mention it has voice chat.

    What platforms are supported? Do I have to install anything?
    Android, iPhone, Mac, Linux and PC. No downloads required if you don't want them. All the big ones right here. In fact you can even use it without downloading it in your browser if you choose. Although downloading it is highly preferable.


    How do I join?
    Simply click the image below. It'll instruct you how to make an account and join in.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Developers just '@Moderator' in the chat and I can label you as a developer so that everyone knows.

    NOTE: If you want a specific username but it is taken during your account creation. DON'T WORRY. Nicknames can be set.

    I'm hoping to just play it by ear at the moment. Obviously willing to make all gbatemp admins/mods chat mods here if they want to be automatically. If they don't want to or even if there isn't enough to cover all time zones I'll definitely be recruiting people based on how active/responsible they are in the chat.

    In other words, we'll see.

    Hopefully this calms your worries:

    They're allergic to data selling and ads. You won't find a trace of that around us here.

    As for encryption, it depends on what you're using and what platform (mobile or PC)

    TLS for text chat, etc

    DTLS for voice over browser

    xsalsa20 for voice over desktop app

    They don't have plans to go Open Source, it's a good product and they want to keep it their own.

    As this is quoted from their lead developer, hopefully that calms any potential worries
