FlyerTalk Discord

I've set up a Discord for the FlyerTalk community if anyone is interested to chat in that environment: https://discord.gg/cFNVptzCty

For anyone that hasn't used Discord, it's similar to Slack, but a more casual environment and more common among gamers. It's been growing significantly.

Fascinating! Discord was originally created for video gaming communities to have a place to chat. Good use by the school to use something students might know quite well.

Yes, it's because students -- seems more so boys than girls but the gender gap isn't as extreme as it used to be with electronic games -- already were using it a lot and tended to encourage and assist their friends with using it so they can use it together for game play and then other stuff too.

There is still a FT IRC channel over at https://mibbit.com/?channel=%23flyer...irc.mibbit.net though it admittedly does not see a lot of traffic.
