Due to the recent outbreak and Discord wanting to be good guys, the Go Live feature in guilds is buffed from 10 to 50 persons per channel. What this means for us is we can teach people about Ubuntu MATE en masse, and while Discord has this buff we should take advantage of it to hold a virtual seminar with 30+ persons for demonstration of the system to interested parties.
Yes I get it's scummy to exploit this, but at the same time when opportunity knocks, do we let ethics restrain us or answer the door?
Figured I would edit this in because not everybody read every single one of my posts; I created a semi-official (read: not official at all) Discord community we're still appending onto. If you want to join it:
- Create an account using the official Discord app from https://discordapp.com or from https://discord.gg
- Join server using this invite URL: https://discord.gg/sc9dv8P
If you already have a Discord account, use invite code
Once in, say hi and make yourself at home! If you still don't know what Discord is, the service is a closed-source, proprietary social network with an affinity towards gaming, which allows infinite log scrollback for guilds and groups, free user-to-user calling and free video casting (with limited framerate and resolution options). For ways to improve your Discord experience, check out the Discord Nitro section of Discord's settings to see what buffs you get for tossing them some coins.
Unless they've changed this recently, you do not need to commit finishing creation of a Discord account to check out the service, and from your web browser you can use the service unverified to check it out and see if you like how it functions. Chrome or Chrome-alike browsers recommended.
