Hello,

 

My name is Alex. I am UA graduate from 2008. I was wondering if anyone on the forum will be interested in live chatting on a application called Discord. Discord is a text and voice chatting service mainly used for computer gaming but recently the application has expanded to the sporting world. It is a free service and is available for the computer and mobile phone. I am willing to moderate and own the Casey Big Purple Fans Discord server. This could be a viable option for any UA fans outside Albany area. I live in Philadelphia currently. 

 

I am posting this to gage interest. I have made a poll also. I will follow the majority. Thanks guys and gals.

I've heard of this but don't know too much about it.

Does it allow you to read the transcript later?

I could see a use for this to chat live during a game whether we're sitting in SEFCU or watching on TV so we don't have 7 pages of 'OH NO', 'OH YES', 'BANG! 3!' in a game thread lol.

 

Pre-game and post-game and other discussion would still be better served being on here though.

Yes it does allow you to read the transcript later and i agree for games it is a better option. Let me set it up and Message you the details. You scroll through the chat.

I think if it's in ADDITION to this forum for in-game posting I'd be interested.

Just to be clear, I think it would be interesting to try for in-game talk. I don't see it as a viable replacement for long term discussion etc. due to what I understand it not being a persistent platform.

There have been times when I've been away and it's been fun to come back and read the game threads. As bizarre as that sounds.

 Agreed. But this will be for games mostly. I am in no way trying to disturb the forums. i can invite you to the server Dane to take a look if you want.
