The FTP Discord!

Post by Torpedo10 » Tue Aug 21, 2018 12:37 pm

Hey All!

An FTP Discord server is up and running.

To download Discord, you can go here: https://discordapp.com/

The above link will allow you to either access Discord online or allow you to download the program. As I mentioned before, you can also get the app on your phone.

If you don't already have Discord, you'll have to create an account. It's free, quick and easy to do. It's probably best people use their FTP name, but if you already use Discord under a different name or want to sign up under a different name, that's fine - you can always change your name once you get on.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is Discord?

It's an all-in-one voice and text chat for people that's free, secure, and works on both your desktop and phone. It's very accessible and user friendly. You can also use the voice chat program, but I think that will be less popular so probably keep use of that to a minimum.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Joining the Discord

To join, just click and follow the link to the server is: https://discord.gg/gHpURve
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why use Discord?
There are many great reasons to join us on the Discord. It is aimed to support the forums as an instantaneous chat platform, that's more communicative than IGMs and more versatile than the forums. It will hopefully increase activity not just on the Discord, but on FTP too!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once you Join

There's an @ feature to tag members. A member will get a notification if they've been tagged. Please don't abuse this feature or use it to annoy anyone.

Another thing that people might find helpful is that you can still be on Discord but afk (away from keyboard). There are 3 other settings apart from online that you can mark yourself as to indicate your status. Idle, Do Not Disturb or Invisible. Might be good for those that still wanna be on and have access to Discord, but aren't around to actively chat, or are at work, school or whatever.

Those who are mods In-Game will also get mod powers on Discord, so be wary! Whilst it won't have any influence in game, any trouble caused on the Discord will get you suspended there for a period, or at worst case, banned.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask away. Otherwise, see you on the Discord!

You won't be in person though, it's a quicker version of here that you can conveniently use on your phone in an easy app format. :P

If FTP the game was an app alone on the market, I'd say you could double the active users, minimum.

Well you know what I mean. I'd struggle to use my voice or I'd use 20 words to say what 5 could well do.

It's majority just text, you can use the voice activated mediums if desired but I think they're too clumsy for something like this anyway.

Off topic, but one of the main reasons, I think, FTP is not gaining any traction in new user base is it's mobile presence. Newer generations/Millennials just don't do desktops anymore and FTP is not mobile friendly at all. Setting orders, in mail message are few examples.

For my work we are in a similar situation. We work in a tech product where our customer is mainly desktop users and our mobile presence is awful. so we are not able to penetrate new user market but we are working on this.

Maybe ash should consider this when he finds his mojo back! :ninja
