Default Re: VT should get a Discord

However, I do think a Discord server would need to be an earned privilege. Users can only gain access to the Discord server after 100, 250, or even 500 posts. So while Discord would not work as a standard chat for VT, it would work very well as "veteran members only" exclusive chat. Even in an unofficial capacity.
Vt used to have a pretty big skype group years ago. Though it was very much those who were approved of and known. That way thimgsmwouldnt get awkward. I think it's a great idea for those people who want to chat together outside of here as people do it anyway. This is by no means a replacement for chat as I haven't seen a real massive amount of people flocking to our current chat. So I guess whatever brings this place together and for people to build better rapport with one another is a great idea.
