[Community/Network] ERAS Discord Group
January 21, 2018 at 9:10 pm #5742
Ello there fellow buccaneers and pirates,
Im sure most of you know of the new girl in town called “DISCORD”, its a step up to connecting communities worldwide.
Needless to say with our group being not so large and the website being a bit “slow” I figured it wouldnt hurt to create an official ERAS/Buccaneers Reef Server to share your impressions, get help have questions asked, see previews in form of screenshots and whatnot.
It wont make the forum here obsolete and it is to be considered more of a real time interaction platform for everyone interested in ERAS.
So without further ado…
Heres the link: https://discord.gg/mYApmE
I already tried to set it up with basic things but I hope that MK and Jeffrey would take part in this and see if that knitts the community more together. Maybe get to know the people better.
I certain we cant go wrong with being a bit more active with that sort of networking 😀

Hey I’m all for it Dennis.
Hopefully some folks will want to try. However, don’t count on it. If people really wanted to talk about their experiences with ERAS they would already have done so here – regardless of the website being slow.
I know some people have – including yourself. I still loved that running logbook post you did a couple years back – very cool.
Have you looked at the screenshots thread lately? – Maltacus is doing a similar thing, but it looks like a story with illustrations – almost like a cool comic book or the like. He gave me his frames and I am preparing something similar.
As far as the new website goes, there has been a lot of frustration for me. One family member who has done websites looked at it and said it would take him too much time to convert the whole forum over.
Another guy who someone I know well thought would do the job – said he wasn’t interested after looking at the site.
Yet another “professional” web firm, in my home town of Idaho Falls said they would throw something together like an estimate for me to look at but then never got back to me. I think they are both greedy and unprofessional because when I mentioned that the most I wanted to pay was 3 to 4 thousand dollars, they said they usually charge more. I told them if the product was good enough, I would come up with more cash – but all I’ve heard is silence. I’m not even important enough for a professional courtesy call-back. What a way to run a business. Its been two and a half weeks since then – certainly I would have heard something by now.
Anyway, another prospective lead has now come up. Don’t laugh – but next week I am heading to southern Utah to meet with the son of my cousin’s girlfriend who is a professional web developer who isn’t busy with anything at the moment and loves gaming and history. His mother assured me that he would not be as expensive as the firm I just mentioned.
She showed me his work and it looked really good. – BETTER than that local web firm I talked to. So lets hope he wants the job. It would be so great to share with him what I need and want face to face as well.
Its funny that you mentioned the 1999 thing in your PM Dennis because I got that criticism of the site on some of our youtube vids and I have specifically mentioned to every prospective web developer that I want it to look antique and old school as far as content is concerned – the feel and atmosphere – but I DON’T want it to look like it was made in the 1990s LOL!

is that group still up? I might join since i am literally on Discard everyday
(cuz of my Witcehr group for example)
April 12, 2018 at 6:12 pm #6214
Well the group is up but not much has happened there, maybe it will take some time until it fully goes off, channels & moderation has been set up. All it lacks are people 😉

XD send invite and it is one more 😉 the Witcher and SC groups i am in
aren t big either. Besides …. i think not many active users in the reef
to begin with. Was just an idea to join to have a way for a bit more direct

Yeah, invite is expired now, so need a new one. After this topic kicked back up, I finally got around to installing and found it expired. I have never used Discord, so it’s all new for me, but as of yesterday, I finally got it on my computer to give it a look see…but unfortunately, since I was late to the party, there is just emptiness for me to look at, LOL.

I would post than the invite link as expired but you already do that jeffrey. a Discord group it’s always a nice place to know more each others and to have quick info about thing or that.The only problem is it don’t keep a log of previous posted thing since the group creation so important things must be on the forum. But it can be a good place for people who want speak on the project and have fail to connect here or don’t want to create an account.
when the new invite is posted count me in …

My fault, I had set the link to being able to expire:
Here is the new one (non-expireable):https://discord.gg/PtAjg
April 15, 2018 at 8:55 am #6224
same for me… expired / invalid 🙁
as for Discard … well seem to be a nice alternative
to Teamspeak…. but guys be aware it is Social media”
after all, aka private behavior survailance sniffing 😉
i recommend using the discard app, but browser only
is possible too.
