For those who haven't tried it yet, Discord is a pretty neat little chat program. It does voice too, and it's really optimized for gaming, in that rather than having to add everyone to a group call any time you want to start a group function (and having to bug the people who don't want to talk by inadvertently calling them too :P ) you can separate your group chat into channels, with voice on or off on each channel (i.e. if you had a general voice channel you can just drop in/out of that channel without having to call anyone, or without waiting for somebody to call you.)

Anyway, who would be interested in an FFC Discord server (which is totally free, btw)? I could set one up very easily and all you would need to do is let me know your usernames here and I could invite you. And any other recommendations you have (i.e. ideas for specific channels or uses for it) are more than welcome!

For those who already have Discord, I'm koshkat#6796

That sounds interesting - is the UI relatively idiot proof?
Never used Discord before, would love an FFC chat thing though

I don't use Discord regularly, but if we have FFC game nights and the game doesn't have good chat, this could be useful!

I've set up a server with general discussion, prayer requests, and serious discussion channels - all will have the same rules as their respective counterparts here on the forums.

I could generate a link so that anybody could join but I'm not sure how to make it where it's a request to join and not joining outright with one click so for the time being, I'll just send anyone who wants to join a friend request and add them that way - I sent one to you, CofEFur!

anyway, it doesn't look like at the moment there's a whole lot of interest in this, but considering it's free, and easy to set up, i don't mind :P

I do recommend Discord, and it's now the only voice/chat system i log into, personally i think skype is a bogged down mess.
I forget my ID, but ill be sure to post it at some point when I'm not at work

Above is a permanent link for people to join. When you get on just PM one of the mods (currently just me @koshkat#6796 and Dissension @neodissension#0185) to get you normal member access to the server :3
