I moved some posts regarding the discord chat app into this thread so that we can continue discussing possible game changes in the other thread.

I definitely think discord is the way to go. A popular mobile game I play has an official discord server, and it's a very nice resource.

Luke, you can make many different chat rooms, such as 'Newbie Help', 'Alliance Recruitment Room', 'Moderator Room', and multiple rooms for alliances that request it. You could even make a room called Game/Discord Rules, and make a few posts in there with all the ingame and discord rules, and lock the room so that people can only read the posts you made, and not be able to post in that room. So everyone can check game rules at any given time. You can also do the same thing but with 'Announcements', so there will always be a place to go to see what's newly released, and what you're working on next.

These are just a few ideas off the top of my head.

You can pin important messages for each different room too, there's search functions, etc.

Testing it now at www.gewar.net/war/chat.php

Wonder if there is a way to embed the whole chatroom here. Now you have to connect to their site first. Not a big problem. But wonder if there are more options.

We should also make clear that using the chat is at anyone's own risk. Meaning: we are not a company. We can't constantly have moderators online. Therefor it's better to not moderate it at all and make that clear.

I disagree, I think you can make it clear that we try our best to moderate the chat room but that you use the chat at your own risk.

I still think you should make at least a few of us mods, that way there are people to clean up clutter posts, let certain players into certain chatrooms (for example, if we end up having alliance chat rooms then you would need moderators to allow Carson people into Carson's private room, etc etc), also moderators can clean up racist/porn posts and ban people who abuse others on the server.

Assuming you would want to make the discord link public and encouraged on the front page of the forums, there will always be random bots/trolls/scammers that try to join the discord server. Remember when we used to get random scammers making topics in years past?

Only an official general Gewar chat room that is attached to the game should you consider moderating.
When we all used Xfire we said whatever the **** we wanted to and it should remain that way. If you all want a pg13 chat room by all means make one but donít force alliances or any other private chat rooms to be moderated. That is something I will have no part of. I would quit the game if that came to be.

I could make mods. Might be helpful yes.

But I want the rule to be that none of the chatrooms is officially moderated by gewar. No punishments can be given in gewar for language you use, and nobody can come to complain to me about language used.
It's the only way. Otherwise someone will now and then step over the line, and others will use it and make screenshots and send it to me and then I have to get involved in that. And I dont want that.
By all means use the chatroom, but as it is outside of gewar you use it at your own risk.

Ofcourse there are boundaries. Deaththreats and anything that is illegal by law has to be reported but that speaks for itself. These things go straight to the polic. But I would expect discord to have a team for that themselves. As I can't see IP's from chatters, and they can.

Now on to more important stuff:

What do you need from me? What chatrooms?

This can actually really work. Although the chat is on another site, you can atleast from gewar already see who is online. And easy to use in browser but also from your app. I like.
