As some of you may have noticed, the server TeamSpeak voice chat service hasn't been available for a little while now; this is because our licence ran out. The licence we had actually costs money, so we've been looking into free alternatives that still live up to standards and can provide the service we need. We've been experimenting with a service called Discord; for those of you that haven't heard of it, you can check it out here, but it's quite similar to TeamSpeak in that it provides both voice and chat options for us. It also has a free mobile app, which is something that TeamSpeak charges for. You can check out the main Discord website here https://discordapp.com/ and once you've made an account, you can join us here https://discord.gg/ZaAappy Please use your forum username as your Discord username; if we start seeing unfamiliar names, we'll remove access to those unknown users. We have a limited number of text and voice channels for now, but if you'd like to see some more, check out this thread and make some recommendations! We're also able to set up some unique permissions, so if you'd like your own custom house/guild channel with access restricted to members only, you can also request that here. Usual server rules apply in Discord so behave and enjoy yourselves Staff do have access to all channels, as a heads up. Also of note; would like to get some feedback on this one once you've tried out the service. If it's no good, we'll look at TeamSpeak/other alternatives.
