While Debian celebrates Linux and communities, especially Debian Communities, the Discord link given is not an official Debian resource nor administered by Debian.
Typo perfectionish.

Wants me to join before I see the contents...I backed out. Never was that fond of Discord type forums anyway.

I can't help but to feel that Mumble would be much more appropriate for a Debian community. Never would I use proprietary software to discuss Debian.

It's like having Raytheon host a world peace conference. Yikes.

If we can call it "software", heh
Nothing more but (yet another) heavy-weight ugly Electron one-service client that's bricked once their server is inaccessible. Putting aside what kind of "people" reside there
Sometimes ya just need a little less brain.

You are right, I'm pretty sure if someone from Debian team joined it would be very easy to give privileges.

Wouldn't agree more. Sadly Element (matrjxt.org) failed to bring new people in. The bridges between irc was golden.

Sounds interesting. Do you know of anyone running a Debian discussion on Mumble?
The Discord channel doesn't seem to work anyway.

1* I just discovered that there's a Debian discord channel. Cool I guess, but does anyone really care?
2* Mumble might be a better solution, but:
3* What, in the name of all that is holy, is wrong with IRC anyway?
Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action. Four times is Official GNOME Policy.

IRC is like HTTP, it is just a building block. To really.compare discord to IRC you would need to define the network, channel and client applications used in the comparison. For example, if I join the pikvm discord I can see messages that were sent before I joined the discord or when I was offline, quite a major advantage.

I happen to be the owner of the new server. We definitely have been back for some time and do have a few actual developers in it, but I would like to say that we're also an unofficial venue and you should consult the IRC or Matrix communities if you want official communication with developers.
