Hi all, Very Happy

Trying to get back onto the fumbbl chat networks. There seems to be IRC still, and also Discord (whatever that is).

Unfortunately, all the IRC clients seem to be total junk now — can anyone recommend one and give complete set-up instructions?

As for Discord, the interface looks horrible and it seems to be demanding email verification — what is that about?

Maybe there are already some guides around as to how to get set up, but I haven't been able to find them. Sad

Welcome back Pac

IRC is dead.

Discord is good. email is used as login I think. I never receive emails from Discord.

It's used widely in the FUMBBL community.

I updated this recently, if it helps.

Shame to hear that IRC is not used so much.

I don't want to use Discord. I see no reason why email log-in should be required.

Wow, Pac!

Last game 2012. Welcome back!

Discord is where it is at. Do you not have a dozen fake email addresses for things like this? Wink

Keep it Secret.

Nice to see you around again, koadah.

Er, no I don't have loads of fake email accounts right now.

IRC never required email log-in. Why does this Discord thing demand it? I don't see any reason it should. Besides, the interface looks like ugly junk.

I am no expert - but discord is fine. IRC was fine. They are all chat programs - they do what is needed. I use discord sometimes - generally not much as not much time to chat - but I do see folks always on and chatting which is cool.

It might well be — but why on earth is it demanding an email address? IRC never did.

Is it so they can disable/limit accounts where users are reported to be abusive? They can then check email address and IP.
Things have changed on the internet since IRC days. Also I think Discord is run by a particular developer.

If people are abusive, they get kicked(/banned). Why would you need any more than that?

I think I might know the 'person' you are referring to. Razz
