One thing to note though
If we abandon gitter, the discord would need to have a permanent join link
We've always operated under the assumption that anyone can come in here to discuss/ask questions
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 22 01:28
True

@flakpanda
Mar 22 02:46
Well yeah. You create a permanent join link, but we can make different channels that are accessible by different people. A public channel, a maintainer channel, ect...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 04:25
yes, there would be a permanent guest-access public join link
along with a bot post on join that would ping the person with where to report bugs and who to ask questions if the other sources don't have the answer
:D

We so need a channel for AoS, just to make things easy for dual maintainers
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 04:31
yep
it would be BSdata Devs as a whole
so serving AoS/Necro/40k/KT/etc
as an aside
hey @Thairne
take a guess how much iron ore/min it is to get 4 heavy modular frames per min with no wastage
the numbers might make your eyes hurt a little
1500 iron ore, 540 coal, 315 limestone, per minute
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 22 09:26
oh GOOD LORD
WTF
And I thought I had things under control......
thats like the entire maps worth of ore...

You're gonna need a bigger map.

what is discord??

newbie

so, I have no opinion, if it works, I have no reason to make a suggestion otherwise

as long as you guys don't disappear into a private hole and never speak to us voyeurs .. I'm happy to offer my insignificant vote in favour .. I use discord for a few chats and it'd be easy to use for this .. the downside I guess is that every muppet on Discord knows where you are and you'll see an increase in the "Why is Space Wulves not fixed for the Leaked CA2095 - you guys suck whaddya mean you don't implement leaks?!?! " ... etc. randos that will appear

Discord sounds like a great idea

in other news, I just tried out Battle Fortress... Basically it looks like its a good place to track your hobby, if you don't already have a spreadsheet doing that :smile:
the way they have gotten around the army building section is that you have to enter all the stuff manually
so there is no copyright data stored by battle fortress, because it has been entered manually by the usres
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 11:04
not looking to jump ship anytime soon but is there a bulk upload of data method ?
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 22 11:04
into Battle Fortress?? I haven't found anything like that yet
you'd have to manually add all the data individually
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 11:04
cool
I'm much happier with you all doing the hard work for me into BS
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 22 11:05
also, there is this: https://40kcompanion.com/

Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 22 11:05
well yes, you'd still need BS to know what all the points add up to in the first place, and I don't think the data can be shared between users
but once you get every model you've got uploaded the list builder should work nicely
there's just a big investment in time to get there in the first place!!!
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 11:07
yeah sounds like hard work .. I'm lazy
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 22 11:07
heheheh
if you just wanted to use it to track your project from a hobby perspective it is pretty good
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 11:07
so lazy .. listening to the guys talking about Satisfactory and speeds n feeds made me cry
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 22 11:08
hehehehehe
I imagine battle fortress would be a good resource for a blogger, because you can record progress updates, which i'm sure you can then share to various platforms
maybe I'll have a more in-depth play and see if it will be a good combination of the hobby spreadsheet I use atm, with battlescribe, and the project tracing program I have as well...
back to the most recent discussion, discord, when and where and how??

@GenWilhelm
Mar 22 11:12
it's like skype or teamspeak (or any other VOIP app), Simon, but with a lot better support for text channels
Price Van-Saint
@sk_Father_Price_twitter
Mar 22 11:13
and it's supported in app and browser
I need to find a SFW way to have it open in chrome

@/all since everyone seems massively in favor, here is the invite link

Sad day, Discord is blocked at work
lol
but the app is far superior on phone
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 15:11
So I think I got the webhooks working for event feed
no bot required

Have we considered MS Teams?
It's just a little bit more project/work focused, instead of gaming.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 17:05
thing about discord is that it's commonly used by the people that will want to find us, and has excellent mobile support
MS teams was... less than stellar on mobile
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 22 18:17
At work, we have one saying: "Teams isn scheiss!"
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 18:32
So ... can you sign into discord with your Github account?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Mar 22 18:35
not that i know of
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 18:35
can use the same email/username though
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 18:36
So why the sudden push to move off of Gitter?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 18:37
mostly because it requires browser use on desktop, the mobile is ancient and awful, and holding multiple simultaneous conversation threads on different topics can be difficult
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 18:41
So... why would one want to use an app on the desktop.. rather than a web interface?
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 18:42
memory use, other web portal services that don't play nice
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 18:44
So ... browsers are ubiquitous. Applications require approval to install. (If you happen to be keeping track of stuff ...)
(In a non-personal machine)
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 18:56
discord also works in browser
and on phone via browser or app
and doesn't eat bandwidth on mobile like gitter
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 18:58
You’re good with the discord “Your content clause”?
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Mar 22 18:59
voice chat can also be utilized when text can be to much
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 19:00
You really want to talk to the lunatics Thwt come around here? They can be pretty scary :wink:
flakpanda
@flakpanda
Mar 22 19:01
i mean... i work in the service industry, so...
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 19:02
there is a dev-only channel for just the contributing lunatics
:P
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 19:10
LOL the new Discord iOS app forces headphones into a lo-fi headset mode when it’s running and ruins music and alternate audio playback...
sigh
Amadeusz Sadowski
@amis92
Mar 22 19:12
I think I'm going to miss the most the issue-number and other GitHub associated integrations: e.g. #1
OftKilted
@OftKilted
Mar 22 19:18
Given that being banned from discord is a permanent ban.. as long as nobody ever does something that gets them banned as a dev ... you’re good.
@amis92 That was quite helpful ... even on mobile.
So. Is @Jonskichov on Discord? Or can we drag him there to ensure support?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 22 19:37
Losing the issue tags will be sad. I think it'll be a nicer environment in the end though. And there's a shitload of bots, maybe one's out there to support the issue tags. Also one of the bots is crawling /r/BS too which is nice.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 22 19:39
I'm working on getting issue tagging working via bot
I have a couple ideas
Earl Bishop

That link you have up is perma link yea?
If it is, I'll update my cats with it as the contact.

it isn't at the moment because I was in construction mode, but I'll be fixing that

Hey folks. Have we changed the way to incorporate Operative Requisition Sanctioned stratagem? I don't see it under "No Force Org" slot anymore. Could someone fill me in?

you need at least one IMPERIUM unit, last i checked
