I was wondering if anyone was interested in a Discord server for Pico-8. It's not meant to take away from the official forums but I feel like it would be good for quick questions and general discussion as well as help build a tighter-knit community around Pico-8.
If you're interested, let me know! If not, then no worries!
Didn't know there was an IRC channel but I think I do favor Discord.
It's more for gaming but its a bit more dynamic than Slack and has more features that help with gaming than say IRC.
It's not so great for organizing projects though but it could serve as a meet up space and for organizing gaming in general among the crowd.
Hmm maybe we should make a page for all the different community gathering spots.
There one on Reddit at least?
This idea that we need to pick one gathering spot and isolate to it is nonsense. The slack is active, the IRC has regulars, and a Discord chat would be fun for live conversation. I even do Pico8 development over Twitch streams, reddit, and Google+, not to mention the board here.
People are where people go, and if we want this hobby to be accessible, it needs to be where the people are.
If you guys start up a Discord, I'll show up.
