We considered discord after we moved away from Slack (Slack was way too hard to follow as the community grew, but it was a bit better at keeping people engaged because of the mobile push notifications), but we decided this forum is a better format for us to build on top of. Discord is great if you just want a place to chat, but this is more extensible (we have some big plans for this site and are working on mobile push notifications, etc.!) and we have full control over the platform to grow it as we see fit which makes handling things like GDPR much easier.
That said, I’m very keen to start setting up some weekly video chats and meetups. We hosted an in-person meetup in Sydney last week which was great. Some of us were chatting this morning about hosting some sessions on Clubhouse also.
