Not OP and I don't really care about discords etc, but do you really think this place is dying? It's a lot more populated than when I first found it.

At that time you'd get maybe one post a day. This thread alone has >>5 and was only started today.

While I don't really want to bump this guy's ad for a discord, what do you mean by this? I've considered joining one for a bit to talk to people but is it more just people spamming memes or something?

Not that anon, but yeah, most public Discord servers are like that. The ones with hundreds of users have 10 active users anyway and it's either a circlejerk or emoji/meme-only communication.

That being said, I've found a welcoming circlejerk recently, so it boils down to people, in the end. I'm sure this imageboard's Discord server would be nice if it was managed properly.

That's a shame. I remember joining lainchan's IRC once and it was basically indistinguishable from /pol/, which was really disappointing.

It'd be nice to find a small community like this one but that was more immediate like irc or discord.
13 Name: Anonymous : 2020-05-27 19:43
>>12
I've been on Lainchan's IRC 5-6 years ago and it was... odd. Not that much /pol/ back then, but there were attention seeking glitterboys, who should have been banned, but for whatever reason weren't.
The valuable convos were often overshadowed by these people.

Lainchan has this one problem that everyone wants to prove they're the best hacker around. There are lots of people who are into darker stuff and barely into technology, too. Was the former owner of Lainchan very much into tech? I think not. He even got the whole imageboard into debt, because he used the server money for some shit IIRC. That's the easiest example to point out.

I agree it'd be cool if we had some place to talk on. I value every piece of convo here, but it's impossible for us to ever become friends, after all.
It's weird how this topic basically resurfaces on several imageboards, including this one:
→/read/1577164055
but there's still no solution for what we feel.

That's... actually a great way to describe most of them. Didn't think of that.

True. It used to have a little more to do with tech, some of the stuff described in the zine and what people talked about on the IRC was actually cool and in-depth.
Unfortunately the ratio of cool stuff to ricing and posing was like 1:5.

Maybe not so related but where are /prog/ communities now? Ones where they actually talk about programming and not just introductory threads and resources exchange without noticeable progress. Ones where actually discuss their experience and the problems they faced during their programming sessions with any given language instead of constantly comparing languages and pasting the same arguments not support their language but against the other language. Technology boards are a meme because they turn out into ricing communities and text editors flames talking about how easy it is to rice your TODO file.

I have this big hole in my heart for genuine programming discussions and I have yet to fill it. Damn the people who claim to support free software and technology as a whole but instead of working on producing good software, as they claim to, they end up shittalking each others' preferences and ricing their machines. I'm so pissed that the free software communities are becoming soulless and unproductive.

Same anon from yesterday.
It's a basic social Discord server. I don't find them that interesting though...
I think that's a problem with group chats as a whole where you are faced with an endless stream of messages. You have to respond quickly before the chat switches to another subject and that doesn't give much room to be thorough and lead the conversation to a more interesting place.

Sadly the only real programming discussion I've ever found is either in small groups of colleagues or, rarely, on hacker news.

>>13
It's an interesting discussion though, I also would like some online comrades to occasionally discuss things with. I guess the problem is that it would have to be really heavily moderated or gated somehow, and personally I wouldn't even be able to tell you what the rules should be or have time to enforce them.

Same. Looks like there's no good place to find support and maybe get people engaged in your projects or actually discuss programming.
One of the scarce reasons I miss university, to be honest.

>>19
or gated somehow
This imageboard is just obscure, that's why we're mostly able to hold a quality conversation right now. It's hard to balance obscurity, though, so that people who'd fit in here could actually find this place.
Besides, one bad move (e.g. when the board gets linked in a wrong place) and everything gets flooded either way.

>>17
Why do you think you don't fit in, though?
Anyway, good to have you here.

>>20
Paid a visit to some of these places and well...

The first place discusses mostly Reddit, politics and Russians.

On the second board there's literally a thread about a guy whining they banned him from Discord.

SchemeBBS seems to actually be fine, but you have to be interested in LISP.

Shiitaba and 4-ch seem to be somewhat OK.

The decentralization doesn't help in that case, as you have to visit 5 different boards and swim in excrements to find a shiny pearl.

There's only so much you can discuss in the time window of the other place you mentioned, especially when it divulges to other topics. It's still nice and better than most places, though.

I've found only one good place to discuss it and that was on Discord, so I wouldn't recommend it. Otherwise I just talk to my /tech/ friend about code and projects we're working on. That fills that for me, but I wish there was an actually good /tech/ board on a text/imageboard. 4chan's /prog/ was apparently good according to a friend but I never used it and then of course moot nuked it.

From what I've seen in fairly successful communities, they usually function with few rules but they have a lot of gatekeeping to make sure only people who will fit manage to get in, usually through invite-only stuff, you have to have a friend who's in to get in, etc etc. Also at least for the few successful Discords I've seen, they don't ban people, they stick them in a pit channel where they can't see other channels and can only talk in the pit. From there they can either stay there till they're let out (if they even end up being let out) or they can talk in the pit and ask to be let out. It's not a perfect system, but it works a lot better than banning and usually can be used to punish rule-offenders temporarily easier.
24 Name: Anonymous : 2020-05-30 16:35
>>22
Is it still operating, or did it end up like most Discord servers?

>>23
I run a gatekeeped anime community myself. We literally used to pick people off anime listing services and send personalized invites. I must admit finding them in the first place was tough, though, and many have ignored the invites too (since people like that don't have the best opinion of Discord servers, I believe).
Then we stopped scouting, so the only way to get in there now is by knowing one of the members.
That kind of exclusivity ensured the prolonged lifespan of the community (it still exists and is fairly active, even after 3 years), but it's a bummer there aren't many new members, who'd bring something interesting in.

It's also sad, because if I wasn't one of the creators of that community I would probably never end up there, because I wouldn't be invited. I feel like there are many places with valuable people out there, but I won't ever learn about their existence.

Also at least for the few successful Discords I've seen, they don't ban people, they stick them in a pit channel where they can't see other channels and can only talk in the pit.

The public server I've made had the same exact rule. The best servers I've been to did the same as well.
I mean, if someone can't even be bothered to write a short sentence about themselves, it means they either don't care enough, or their brains are fried. In both cases letting these people in would be detrimental to the residing community.

So, basically, it all boils down to:

Invite-only
Good for the community, disadvantageous to people who are looking, but can't ever learn about the existence of such a place.

Gatekept by a pit channel
Good balance between being public and maintaining the quality.

Security by obscurity
Somewhat good. Dig in long enough and you will find it. Requires effort to get in, which is a filter already.
Might fall down when it gets flooded by someone who links it in a public place.

I'd join anon but as >>23 said: less rules are good, I don't agree with gatekeeping in the sense of inviting your friend then they'd need to invite someone to get in or something similar though.

Also at least for the few successful Discords I've seen, they don't ban people, they stick them in a pit channel where they can't see other channels and can only talk in the pit. From there they can either stay there till they're let out (if they even end up being let out) or they can talk in the pit and ask to be let out. It's not a perfect system, but it works a lot better than banning and usually can be used to punish rule-offenders temporarily easier.
Servers only do that so they'll keep their member count up. People seem to have complexes about that.

I run my own discord server that's small so if you need any help then send an invite my way and I can help!

See this sounds like something I'd love to be a part of, but the problem is that obviously I don't know anyone there, so I'll never get in.

I understand the reasoning though. As soon as something is public it really suffers.

That said, I think there are a lot of people who are "outside" of these kinds of communities and have no way in, as seen in →/read/1577164055 so I don't know what the solution is but I'm sure there must be one.

As an aside, I'm grateful to be able to have this discussion with all of you, I think >>21 is right in that it's because this is obscure. But, that does make me worry about what would happen if this became a lot more well-known. Perhaps we should organise a place to go if that were to happen, I don't know.

I don't really agree with you. When you have a server with good people, you usually want more people like that to join in. There are good servers with only 20 active members that are open in that way so they can recruit more people to share more experiences (i.e. who knows if the next person to join isn't some programmer working on a cool game, or an indie musician, or some other creative person).
I have recently joined two servers with pit channels and both of them let me in without much of a problem, just because my intro didn't consist of just three words. Having to wait for a mod for approval also filters out the people who are unwilling to wait, which may suggest their attention spans are short or they just came to cause trouble.

The servers that care about having lots of people (and solely on that) don't have pit channels. They just let everyone in and the whole thing usually dies fast.

>>26
See this sounds like something I'd love to be a part of, but the problem is that obviously I don't know anyone there, so I'll never get in.

I try to repay for my sins by making public Discord servers, which sort of serve as recruitment grounds for the people who show they could fit in the right server, because they're curious about anime and don't just blindly watch everything without a thought. If I see such a person, I DM them with an offer.

Unfortunately, this doesn't really work, because the people I look for have probably given up on looking for communities (on Discord, or at all).

But, that does make me worry about what would happen if this became a lot more well-known.

Even if I said that just being obscure to maintain a quality of discourse has a downside of being potentially discovered and flooded, I don't really think that will happen here. You have to put some effort in to find this place, and this is enough to repel lots of people, including these, who don't really know what an imageboard is in the first place (because they've started out with Discord).
That being said, I would love to discuss things with you people here on a pseudonymous basis, but I heard the IRC is long dead - shame.

Maybe this is the case but I've never seen any with pits using them for that purpose, although I might be wrong. Thing is, pit users don't show up on the main list so it doesn't really change how it looks once you're in the Discord.

>>27

Agreed. One of the good Discords I was in had a channel that was open to all established members, and newly joined users could only talk in there. Kind of like an intro channel, but it served as a good vetting place and also a way to fuck with people who just wanted to spam and cause shit. Only after being talked to or "ok'd" by an existing member could they join. The system was actually really good and kept out a lot of stupid people who wouldn't have added anything.

How interesting. I occasionally post here, but why not join a Discord "server" and isolate myself from the people here, all for the low cost of installing proprietary spyware, being unable to use Tor for posting, agreeing that everything I send the company has a license to, and being harvested by a private corporation looking to build a critical mass of users before selling them under the bridge?

People who do this are awful, because they may genuinely believe this is community-building, but it's not in any sense. All this does is help these vampires draw more blood and completely isolate people to strongarm others into joining.

As for programming venues, Lainchan's /lambda/ suits me just fine. I don't think there's currently a superior anonymous programming forum. I'm generally unwilling to create accounts just to participate somewhere, and most IRC are just people idling for long periods of time. I participate in one other group I won't mention here, because it's an offshoot of something strange and each participant is generally expected to be a heavy participant in a way most other forums don't.
30 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-03 15:56
The issue with Discord, which is constantly perpetuated by the software itself, is that server owners are never content with a small group of users (say, less than 20). Every half-decent server that I've been on has been consistently destroyed by growth-starved owners that only care about bloating the number of users and having more and more posts in each room, not whether any discussions of legitimate wit, value, or interest are held. How do people even use these servers with thousands of people logged in at once for anything other than simple shitposting?

As users in this thread have mentioned, this can be only circumvented by difficult-to-find, gatekeeping moderators - but, of course, those servers are impossible to join without knowing someone from them already, making the process mostly pointless.

I've noticed that there is an actual "Discord Admin" archetype. There's a whole bunch of people who get off on having their very own community, and derive their pleasure from 'owning' a group of people, even though that group of people never formed around them. You'll see a whole lot of 'My discord guild...' posts and proudly stating they're a Discord Guild Owner in social media profiles.
32 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-03 22:07

Yeah those people are terrible, just real tools. I used to want to run a guild back when I thought it had some value, but I eventually realised that people who try to run guilds without a specific reason (e.g. for a specific type of community that doesn't already have a place to talk) end up becoming power-hungry or self-absorbed because of running one, if they weren't already. Power corrupts, even in stupid situations like running a Discord guild.
33 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-03 22:21

>>32
I'm >>24 and an co-creator/owner of 4-5 guilds. Have never cared for anything else than the quality of discourse, but I guess I'm in the minority.
As I mentioned, some of them are about anime (so the topic's specified), some are pretty much "whatever goes" and even in the latter case I put users higher than the numbers.

I'm not the only person to run things like that. There's this video game, which has a spin-off imageboard and that imageboard has a Discord guild, too. They have a pit channel and the only place that links to the guild is the imageboard itself. From what I've seen so far, they don't try to make it the biggest community ever; the mods don't get power hungry too. I haven't been there for a long time, though.
There's also a guild hosting the emotes related to the aforementioned game and this one allegedly had a community, but as you can imagine it's been killed off.

There's also a sad case of that game about demon girls that came out recently - someone impersonated the actual creator of the game and made an "official" Discord guild. That's just amazingly disgusting, honestly.
They've been forced to stop impersonating the actual author of the game, but they still remain the owner of the second biggest fan community guild for the game, despite their shitty behaviour.

On a similar note: I really want to like 22chan but their ad for the discord server is really off putting. They go for this "old /b/" vibe but then put their discord server right on top which doesn't fit the rest of the board at all.

But the phenomeon you posted is also pretty interesting:
A friend was over and he told me about the Yu-Gi-Oh manga, specifically that it wasn't always about the TGC and that the early chapters are worth looking into. And I was totally surprised because I only ever knew about the anime and thought the TGC is where it all started.

And two days later I see someone in social media posting a panel of said ealry chapters of the manga.

Depends. I joined some "group finding" discords to find people to play some online multiplayer game with and the guys I met there were all pretty normal people. I think as soon as you drift into this anime/imageboard sphere you're suddenly never far from furries and trannies. They're just inseperable. But don't worry, there's still decent people on discord.

I was trying to say that you tend to notice those kind of people more because it's a hot topic on imageboards and alike. I tend to maintain separate mental contexts for every website so even if I did came across them on Discord before, because I'm not subconsciously looking for them I didn't even notice.

I noticed this back in 2008 though. Back then you had tripfags on /b/ posting with anime avatars (mostly female avatars and never far from erping) and furries also weren't rare. Imageboards and sexually deviant people being close to each other isn't a hot topic in my opinion, it's a well documented phenomenon. And thus it's no big surprise that discords for IBs tend to harbour the same kind of audience.

op here, i almost forgot i left this here after going on a break for a bit. Sorry if the invite fucks anyone over but as i said i just made this out of boredom so it isn't that quality anyways, you don't have to join. I was just hoping with more people things would be a bit lively since most people i've met on these kind of boards are nice in general, or maybe i haven't been around much after a while. Imma post a new link if anyone wants to but there isn't much i have to offer there. Also if anyone is annoyed by shitposting instead of actual conversation, i have separate channels for them so you don't have to worry about people spamming shit in general chats. https://discord.gg/7KCabvv

Okay dude you seem alright so I'm just gonna tell you this: people on textboards and even the majority of people on alternative 4chan boards despise discord. It's a bad chat client with lots of horrid attitudes and people. It's basically a meme cesspool and the fact that your discord has a "shitposting channel" tells me yours won't be great or even worth joining. By creating these servers, you are sucking the life out of boards like this. For the past month, people have given pretty much only this very thread attention. Honestly I think if you want a "nice memer" community you should post this server on [s4s]

I disagree. It's functional, free and everyone can set one up. Skype had bad quality and bad connections and for Teamspeak many needed to rent a server.
with lots of horrid attitudes and people
Yes and no. It's a tool and everyone can use it and like cars, screwdrivers or forks assholes use those too.
But yeah, many public servers are filled with these people, but even more are just about a topic/community/game and are fine. I joined one for team finding in a multiplayer game and everyone just does what the server is for.
It's basically a meme cesspool
see above. It's not a uniform platform.
and the fact that your discord has a "shitposting channel" tells me yours won't be great or even worth joining
True. That's where your actual point should begin. The way a server is ran usually dictates its audience. A channel like this of course attracts the very kind of people this anon and many others despise so much, me included.
By creating these servers, you are sucking the life out of boards like this.
That is my main concern, too. Usually you don't NEED a discord server for a board, because the board itself is where the community interacts with each other. I'd say even an IRC detracts from the main thing, but this one's dead anyway so I don't mind.
If you board isn't fast as 4chan and you can allow for multiple splitoffs of the commmunity it's fine, because new people will replace them soon and the site won't miss the traffic. But for slow boards it's not necessary and will almost always form a 2nd community.

So people who have no idea about the community want to make a public discord server for said community. Excellent.
I think I'll keep my discussion here, thank you.

I just want a child-free chat about things that aren't anime or porn. At the very best it's about programming because everyone's a programmer nowadays.

Just my two cents: if you are FORCED to use Discord for whatever reason, there are two good unofficial clients: cordless for terminal, and Ripcord for desktop. They are far lighter than the official client; just don't get caught using them.

Caught by who? And why? What's so bad about using an unofficial discord client?

it's against the discord terms of service, so you can get banned if someone happens to report you using it. however, i don't recall any incident of someone getting banned just by using it.

I guess discord really wants to have your data.

Disgusting. I'm not gonna even use it for talking to friends now. P2P or nothing.

Then make one.

I did, several times. The problem isn't making one but finding people who'd actually like to build a community instead of just shilling themselves, and promoting the server around without getting the enmity of the unwanted. It's just not worth the time, effort and costs. It's already difficult enough to get anybody to join if you spam invite links on the trashiest places on the web.

Sounds to me like there's just not enough people who are looking for/intrested in such a place OR they already have one and don't need another one.

I'm not >>59 but he's totally correct. Half the people on the internet are assholes. Add anonymity into that balance and you can guess the results if you spread something around for people to join.

The only communities I've ever been a part of that were worthwhile were small, hard to enter, and unknown.

I'd like to be part of another at some point.

The only cure for low-effort trolling on the internet is good moderation and an adherence to pre-established rules, both of which are in short supply nowadays due to automation.

Except even the things that aren't called low-effort trolling are just as low-effort and braindead.
There are subjects that you simply cannot touch because people don't have pre-established opinions to throw at each other or it's an actually unpopular view that people actually disagree with, so when you touch upon these things you witness that people are completely incapable of thinking and their various parties are all the same thing. There's so much uniformity of thought it's basically impossible to discuss anything or present anything truly different. The only debates you can have are 1 or 0 about a couple things. Same with interests, it's all converging to the same stuff and if you don't belong to one or another faction you are really isolated.
I think at this point there are too many kids or stupid people online. I have to get acquainted with real people and real socialization again, but I feel like I'll never trust people again, I think people are what they show in a safe context. I know I am the same person when I log off.
