Would there be any interest in a DHW Discord server? I'm aware it probably wouldn't get much use, but I'm also aware that in some situations having a more appropriate chat room for getting help with development will probably be a lot easier than going back and forth on the forums and with PMs. I'm happy to set it up if there's more than like two people that would use it.

In case you don't know what Discord is, go here; it's a chat client that has a web interface and a desktop version, similar to IRC but more centralised and with more features.

A DHW server which stands for Disk Host WAN has been created by me and is available here at https://discord.gg/JMyEAmw . It contains the same two sections just about as the DieHardWolfers discord server did.

This is to avoid not violating the DieHardWolfers trademark name.

What happened to your server, Alumiun? Went there the other day, and it was gone.

Let's just say the level of discourse had devolved below what I could be bothered moderating.

Uh huh. And have you considered that it may have "devolved" to that point because you couldn't be bothered with moderating it?

Oh well, I daresay Payday 2 & PUBG are more interesting, anyway. Wink

Let me join in this circus here.

First AlumiuN, servers not gonna moderate themselves. You was the only moderator there and rather moderate it, you just played video games.
I know there was messages (Discord members probably know what I am talking about), but you were the only moderator there and you did nothing to keep it nice.

So next time if you trying to moderate a server think about how to moderate it.

I'm not going to pass judgement on AlumiuN's moderating ability with Discord, as I wasn't there, I never viewed Discord's content from elsewhere, and I haven't read feedback of people's opinions of it. But I know that starting up servers and their content isn't the same thing as keeping it going indefinitely. I doubt that the server's activity went down for one reason and one reason alone; I'd make a bet that other things happened as well. My advice to AlumiuN is to collect the facts one at a time and find out what happened to bring it to this point.

It is true that I could have been a little more active in moderating things; however, I made on my stance on people's conduct clear, and I was reluctant to take action against people because there was a lack of discussion in the server and I wanted to not be too heavy-handed in my approach. When it gets to the point that the vast majority of the discussion in the server is related to the behaviour of one or more users, especially in the case of discussion as laden with personal attacks as it was, and removing those elements would have essentially left me with an empty server, I decided that it was simply not worth my time or effort to bother.

With my approach to moderating, it more often requires a nudge in a better direction rather than flat-out bans and suspensions. This is where knowledge of social psychology can come in handy. You post things in such a way that it gets your visitors *interested* in veering away from hostile discussions, and they're interested because a point has been brought up ... a point they find more interesting to talk about than whatever it was they were ranting about at the time. And yes, this is something I need to work on myself. Smile
