its retard proof. thats why its so popular.

>> No.72950213

it was made for gamers specifically but i know some companies that use it for their internal chat because it's dead simple to set up and just works (until it doesn't). discord devs should seriously consider entering enterprise market - they'd make decent amount of dough if they removed all the gay speak in their ui and hosted premium servers with better uptime and shit like that.

>> No.72950325

true but more liberal companies like startups would eat that shit up.

>> No.72950347

Because its easy to use. Its almost like you should care about user interaction!

>> No.72950363

imo because of their initial marketing strategy. Back when it released anything that got trashtalked was a liability to the social status of its users. They trashtalked skype and teamspeak causing the edgiest of the edgelords to start bragging about how they're only using discord. The wannabe fedora tippers followed suit until the last normie thought that skype and teamspeak were shit.
The rest is history. These days discord, for all the shit it gets for being the default choice, is actually pretty damn good, if it weren't for the massive privacy issues. There are plugins for modded versions of the client to disable a large part of that shit, though, as well as a lot of other nifty shit like breaking the ToS by recording every message you recieve or scraping an entire server's userlist and mass reporting everyone on that 13 and under dating server.

Oh and they support the left, which means that they don't have to be great or deliver on promises. They'll get forever defended simply for supporting them.

teamspeak is objective shit
vent is more shit
skype banned me because my brother forced the red icon all the time so no one would talk to him yet he would start chats, apparently talking to them when they are like this is called harassment, and they hard locked my account with no warning and no way to recover other then 'make a new one'
then discord came up, me and friends were looking for an alternative due to how shit skype is, so it became the obvious choice.

ease of use, able to send small files, voice chat, and chat rooms, and the ability to set up servers with 0 hassle...

is it great? Fuck no

Same appeal as IRC had back in the day. IRC isn't pretty either, but it's the perfect place for fellow autists to congregate. Before anyone mouths off, yes, IRC users and Discord users are two completely different groups of people who want different things out of their chat paradigm. I'm drawing an analogy here.

It was a variety of things, really Marketing, centralization etc. I can't say that Discord didn't fill a need in terms of some features, but its business model and privacy issues are matters of concern. It is a problem how dominant it has become in the market, centralizing so much communication under a single proprietary mantle.

Ultimately, we should be doing everything possible to support Matrix.org (and the Riot.im client, among others) instead, which gives similar features to Discord, yet is open source and federated (ie you can run your own server or sign up on any of your choosing etc).

Indeed. One of the main devs did a huge Ask Me Anything thread on the /r/Privacy subreddit (and was cross posted to Linux etc) so there's a lot of good information there.

Matrix (and Riot) are coming along nicely, but one feature that I think they need to overcome Discord is the integration with Patreon (or Liberapay, KoFi etc) Twitch, and the like where subscribing to a channel or becoming a patron auto-magically grants Discord rewards (access to certain channels, certain privileges on the server, a certain category, name color and/or icons to use etc). This is one way that Discord facilitates the use and expansion considering people figure these extras are worthwhile. Matrix having support for something similar would really help

I love Discord because of the transgender people. I'm heterosexual and you can argue that if it looks like a woman, it's not that bad, but it doesn't matter either way. Would you rather have intercourse with a man who looks like a woman and has a penis or a woman who looks like a man and has a vagina? That's where things get confusing. However, that's not even why I like it. I like it because it's hot having a man dress up as a woman and be submissive to you.

There's lots of them on Discord and they're more willing than women and are easier to deal with. Of course I still prefer women because of the vagina and all that, but this is more of a fetish. As for the platform itself, it just panders to incel NEET "gamers". What do you expect? It's exactly what I expected something related to video games to be. Look at the stupid "gaming" computers and their middle schooler design. It's all fucking gay as fuck. It's just a clone of Slack that has a "gamer" sticker on it.
