    Congratulations on integrating the most notorious forum killer to date :)

    In all seriousness though, discord is really really good, hope your site can sustain the ease of use of Discord.

    Lack of innovation is the forum killer
    Chat is a site feature

    Our community is dedicated to providing the users a growing network that contains tools and features to enable them to become structured with effective channels of communication. We will soon be adding an application database where group leaders can write and host online applications and interviews for potential new members this will be in addition to our already established extreme vetting services... this group can tell me your dogs name in about 30 mins. My team is focused on moving forwards we look at all options and do what we think is best. discord is so far ahead of everything else in this regard it is not even funny. and the fact its hosted and free is amazing.. no ads either

    Excellent post I hadn't seen this specific Discord integration addon yet. Looks like it's newer. Will be looking to try it.

    Yeah, there's a couple.

    Jaxel has one, which is good, I use it. I think Nixfifty has one, there might be another one too.

    We use the Nixfifty one, which is good, just a little fiddly at setup

    I hope this works out in your favour. I tried to do the same thing with one of my gaming forums and lost the forum to Discord. I do think your niche is more likely to yield positive results and I wish you the best of luck :)

    I'm with fixerfixer

    I'll eventually try this on my local motorcycle community

    I'll simply get rid of all (or most) forums.
    Keep Pages, Gallery, Calendar (major part of site), etc.

    Discord is better at communicating, especially real-time, has voice, notifications, etc.

    And people will use their accounts for the gallery & to RSVP to events.

    Win-win really.

    I don't see Discord as the enemy. If it works better and users like it (we already have an active Discord) then why not give the people what works?

    Wow. The combination of social groups, chat and discord is an obvious no brainer.
    True, but then its lost forever.

    Can you back up a discord site if it all goes pear shaped? And also do discord monitor the types of sites? can they ban particular sites if they become politically active like most successful IT companies of late? Is this a risk?
