Does SNB Have a discord server?

If not, collectively, I think it would be a great place to hang out for network support and to help each other.

What do you think?

I wouldn't. I'm not eight years old. No social network(s) use allowed on my network or my devices. :)

I come when I can to help. I'm not on call 24/7/365. :cool:

Until I joined snbforums so late in my life, my previous interactions were with Faxes. Lol... This is as social as it gets.

Merry Christmas to all!

No, but the Asuswrt-Merlin crowd does have an IRC channel, where we sit at around 90 members online on average.

8 years old lol, I'm 49 and use and run a discord server, my son, daughter and nephew idle in it, as do my friends from around the EU that I play various games with, mostly overwatch and wow. I also idle in map making channels etc, and run several bots in my channel. It's a great tool for gaming and tech support. For example you can screen share and guide people through a setup process etc. There is probably around 25 people in my channel, but I haven't been running it that long. There are also bug fixer channels etc, just about everything really.

I used to use IRC, about 20 years ago for counterstrike, but it is sooo dated now. I think we had about 150 people when I was in a reasonably successful counterstrike clan. From memory I think it was Mirc we used on quakenet.

Just a thought anyway, using it regularly I can see how it would suit SNB, that said if you guys are happy with IRC that is also fine. I would be quite happy to assist setting it up if there is any interest, if not we can leave it be. Although I think instant support on all kinds of router issues in a channel could be successful.

Aren't you fancy with the faxing.
I would have posted earlier, but someone picked up the phone, and my USRobotics 56K modem disconnected my computer.
Happy & Safe Holidays To All

@Clark Griswald @L&LD I love the fact you guys are so modern. Where can I upgrade my US Robotics Sportster 28,800 to such spaceage technology ?

I also love the fact you are called Clark Griswald, he is a personal hero of mine, and I love to watch the Christmas Vacation during the season, reminds me so much of my own family.

There are a few of us with special talents that cross space-time and are able and willing to live simultaneously in the past while using and enjoying the futuristic new gadgets, minimally. :D

You don't need to actually have a US Robotics Sportster, just knowing about it puts you half way there!

Keeping up with the times doesn't mean you're young just means you aren't a fool. Tech improves on a daily basis. IRC is the basis of what things run on, I mean basic programming code mostly still runs on Unix. I think a Discord server is an excellent idea.

Communicating via the latest fad isn't keeping up with the times to me. What I learned about communicating (without computers, mind you) helping out, is still serving me very well. :)

I remember a few years ago... "Hey, why aren't you using What's App? It's great! I use it to keep in touch with my kids, why don't you also join in?". Which I kept refusing to do.

Cue 2021...

"Everyone, uninstall What's App. They are stealing all of your personal data. Switch to Signal instead."

I also get people asking me "Why not use Telegram?" Well, why would I want to share my personal phone number with a foreign company just so I can communicate with others on what is the current fad, and which I suspect will also go away a few years from now?

IRC isn't owned by a company, it's run by enthusiasts, so I don't have to worry about these types of things happening a few years down the road. I've been using IRC since the early 90's. It "just works".

I don't want to keep changing communication platform every 3-4 years just because things come and go. Where's Google Hangouts now?
