    If you're an old turd like me on Bulletin Boards, you may remember that we used to have an IRC Chat on the forum. After I joined, I can't recall a time it ever worked to be honest, but it was still there. As of late, there has been a number of different clients available, such as TeamSpeak and Mumble. However, recently a new one has emerged and it looks very promising. This one is Discord. It allows you to chat with its users either through text or voice. You can download it on a variety of devices and from the experiences I have had on other forums, I think The Bulletin Board could possibly benefit for not just us forum users, but for the Wiki Staff as well, allowing for instant alerts to other staff of wiki vandalism and more interactivity. Thoughts?

    I'm not opposed to it. We do use Discord behind the scenes for NIWA staff chat anyway.

    Yes I'd agree with you, but we need regular posters like me to join in.

    Sorry for the late response - I'm down for it too. Already using it for NIWA staff chat + several other rooms, and I wouldn't mind having Nookipedia on there :)

    Felt this needed to be bumped again now with the main page revamp.

    Jake Edit: I'm promoting this on the main page to see if anyone else would like to weigh in on this.

    Might as well get this underway :) I'll set up a Discord server for us in the next few days.

    Just a reminder that we have a Discord server if you ever wanted to chat with others about Nookipedia, Animal Crossing, and whatever else. We just went public on Facebook, Twitter, and the wiki with the link, so there are definitely a good friendly bunch already there, why not join! :) https://discord.gg/X6msWDu
