Obsidian Portal on Discord?

So, pretty much every community on the web has their own Discord server and given the state of the world and our hobby these days, most of us are online a LOT. So I was wondering, does OP have a discord server? If so, could someone please send me an ivite.

If it doesn't, why not? And would that be something the community is interested in?

    I'm not personally familiar with Discord or running a Discord server, so I don't know what I don't know here, but I'm told it would require someone to moderate it.  If someone in the community wants to volunteer to moderate it, then we'd be open to the idea.

    If anyone wants to volunteer, PM me, or post here.

    As long as you don't require someone to be on 24/7 and have no issues with a moderation bot being used as well, I could probably set something up

    This sounds great, I would love to get into a OP discord. I know very little myself but would love to become a member once the server has been set up!

    Honestly surprised no one has suggested this sooner, as popular as Discord is for pretty much everything these days.

    Whoops @Keryth987, it says my invite link is invalid. Do those things have an expiration date?

    They expire after a certain amount of time. We will have to wait on a new one to be sent out to join.

    Hi all,

    Here is a new invite:  https://discord.gg/4SVk3rh

    It will not time out, but has a limit of 100 users - I think that we would all be delighted if we hit that limit and needed a new invite smiley

    Just wanted to bump this thread- Maybe we can make it sticky up top or a general "Don't forget to join us on Discord!" banner/button?

    Hey @Kallak, @thaen, do you think that it might be worthwhile to promote this on your social media channels, like your twitter and facebook feeds?

    I think that the more people know about the channel the more valuable it will be for everyone.

    Sounds like a fine idea!  @Jynx001 actually does most of the social posting.  How about it?

    NICE! I'm in - thanks for setting everything up, guys. I'll start announcements on social media and look for opportunities to promote it. We're currently at 20 members as of this moment. Let's see how big we can go!

    @Jynx001- It's worth putting out on multiple reddits too, not just OP. See if we can capture some discord folks out in the wild.

    Good idea, @Conan_Lybarian - I'll try to get it on all the subs that allow that kind of promotion. If we have good discussions about different game systems, I can justify posts on subs with stricter rules. There's already quite a few good ones going for some of the systems that have threads.

    I tried five times to install this app and each time it told me installation failed.  I tried via the OP Blog twice and directly from the organisation's download page three times.  "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark"

    I am using Windows 10 laptop through Google Chrome.  Any ideas?

    That's weird, @twiggyleaf. I don't use an app, I just go to the discord website.

    Yes, you can run discord through your web browser if the app doesn't work for some reason.
