Online Chat / Discord Channel

Postby robheaton » Mon Aug 09, 2021 4:17 pm

Hi Folks,
We are testing an addition to the Online Chat using Discord.
Discord gives us many new features, including voice, video, screen sharing, embedding pictures, persistant logins & much much more!
In particular this gives a far far better chat experience on phones and tablets.

The original IRC based chat has been linked to the new Discord Channel. (Thanks to some technical wizardry by XorA!)
So if you join one and post something, it automatically shows in the other. There is no need to join both.

There are no plans to close the original IRC and we will continue to run the two side by side, as I know lots of people use IRC from a retro machine to join.
(Myself included)

If you want to try the Discord Channel out, there is a link at the top of the Forum on the navigation bar, or you can join using this link -

You'll see in both the IRC chat and in the Discord Channel there is a user called 'QL-Bot', this is the link between the two systems.
