***CHAT USERS: Please weigh in here***

It has been suggested that Chat be moved offsite to Discord. I personally don't know much about it, but I know a lot of people using for gaming chat and such. You'll have to register, but you can check it out here.

https://discord.gg/9RQQJXe

From my perspective, the main advantages of it are:
  • It's not on our server, so it won't lag or go down during games.
  • It's more modern, so you can do things like direct messages, images, attachments, etc.

On the other hand:
  • There's no direct integration, so everyone will have to manually create an account if you don't already have one.
  • Usernames won't translate from CP, so you might not be able to tell who is who.
  • It's a completely separate system, and the CP mods have no control over it, so it's kind of a free for all.

I personally don't care - I'm only an occasional chat user anyway - so whatever most of you chat users want, I'm fine with. If most people would prefer giving Discord a try, I'll change the link in the header.

I love the Discord chat room, but I agree that we should wait until the offseason to change.

Is there a way that the normal chat that people us on CP can be improved (along with the site)?

I'd assume that it would need a new/bigger server to handle the traffic?

Not really, no. It's a half assed hack that was written a decade ago.

For those who donít regularly go to the chat, we only won the game at Denver this season because TLO mandated that we only post in caps in the fourth quarter. It was a true revelation.

So Reerun gets banned for being a douche to DaFace about the server, and then votes to keep chat here, thus hurting the server performance. What a piece of shit.

So if there were improvements/more processing power/indexing (whatever it is) made for the server, not only that would help the board performance, it would enable to keep this chat on here?

Correct. Though I'd still argue that the user experience leaves something to be desired even when it's working well.

That's fair, but perhaps in the offseason, run a poll to gauge CP's preference if they want bells and whistles while on a different chat, or continue to use this one with no bells and whistles?

Just a thought.

Either discord or make the chatroom way more prominent. Would be cool to talk over mic about the game.
