Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

And I would like to mention that, even if it was designed for gamers, doesn't mean we can't take advantage of it for other needs. The Laravel community, for example, has a Discord server too.

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

I think this page explains it perfectly.

Even though I wouldn’t mind using Slack, it kind of defeats the purpose of my suggestion, which was bringing the community to more people.

But, again, if you guys are more fond of Slack, it’s very similar to Discord except in matters like its public.

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

The availability of Discord. It's a service widely spread. Most people on the internet have Discord. People could easily join Discord without having to understand how IRC works.

Re: Moving developement discussion to Discord

To be honest I'm not trying to replace the forums with Discord. Although at the end of the day you can do everything on the forums. Even IRC wouldn't serve of much purpose. However, the things that you can accomplish with Discord that you can't with IRC are explained in the topic's initial post. I s...

I personally see no benefit to making a move to whatever is more popular today. IRC is easily available with a web client for everyone. It's not like the idea is moving to a popular service just because it's popular, but because it provides more powerful features to manage a chat with a community s...

Moving developement discussion to Discord

I created a new suggestion for phpBB but I'm not sure if it is the right place to put it as it's not a suggestion for the software but for the community itself. Just in case I will quote my suggestion to further discuss it: Other open source projects are starting to move its developement discussion ...

Providing a way to add new columns to forum and topic lists

Currently the template events available in forumlist_body.html and viewforum_body.html don't provide any way to add new columns (like, for example, the number of posts and topics that a forum has) to the lists. Adding a new template event doesn't quite solve the problem because prosilver's CSS doesn...
