With the forum's chat function not working at the moment and the webcasts possibly not happening this year, I created a GottaDEAL server on Discord for us to chat about Black Friday or whatever else.

Here's the invite link: https://discord.gg/3hd2K5t

For those who are unfamiliar with Discord, it is a free text, voice and video chat service. You can access it via their apps or through a traditional web browser. Once you sign up for an account you can join the GD server using the special invite link above and can chat with everyone else who has signed up.

One advantage of using Discord over the old forum chat function is that you can view past conversation in the channels and not just what is happening while you are there so can come and go without missing anything.

Currently there is a #general channel for more off-topic chat and a #blackfriday channel for discussing Black Friday. If we need to create additional channels we can do that at a later time but this is a good start. We've already got a dozen or so people who have joined and I'll be posting about it elsewhere but I wanted to make a dedicated thread so more people see it.

I'd never heard of Discord. But I've signed up and it looks like it might be fun :).  Also downloaded the app to my phone. You can never get away from me now.

I'll log in and hang around our Discord chatroom throughout the day. Arizona time, of course. Anyone needs me just give a shout. :yay:

I literally learned about Discord via my Pokemon Go gaming addiction... lol Will be fun to actually have a non-PoGo server on my list!  :trampolin

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

About 10 minutes before you posted here (according to the time stamps), a notice came up in Discord that you had joined.  Were you able to get in?  If not, maybe try a "forgot password" or something with your email address?

Tomorrow we'll be looking into video chat or at least screen sharing so we can show the best deals in the ads while yapping with all you GD-ers.

Exciting to have some ads to talk about!
Be sure to pick up a microphone or use the feature from the webcam to talk to the moderators live in the voice channel

The Discord server has been a great addition to the site this year and we will definitely use it more and integrate it more into the site and forum over the next year. It's not too late to join us if you haven't. We'll also keep it running all year and maybe have some contests on there during the non-BF time of the year.

I've really enjoyed the Discord server.  I wonder though...Do you think it affected the number of posts here on the site?  Also, (just because I don't know how it works), does less traffic on the site itself matter in the grand scheme, as long as we use the partner links?
