Because it seems like there's not a single discord (see here for more info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discord_(software) ) for amstrad machines anywhere, so I made one!


I'm looking for some input on what I can add(and/or take away) to make it better for everyone.

I'd have suggested searching the forum first, since there was already one made a couple months ago... (admittedly it's inactive, though)

I know this is part of a cycle, and we're moving from forums back to IRC (call it discord or telegram or slack), but I think it is a shame. The community isn't that large to split it.

Anyway, I keep lurking here. No other social media for me for now (does this count as social media? :D).
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel, Kitsune`s Curse and Brick Rick for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

Yes, I agree. And while a chat is nice for some specific reasons, it sucks for many others. Mainly, other than real-time, it's not convenient at all to search through old 'posts'.

That's totally cool. I'm not demanding that anyone join! But if you should ever reconsider - we're not going anywhere :)
It's my ultimate aim to bring as many communities together as possible - With the success that has been the Amiga discord(which I co-founded) I figured there should be at least a proper unified place for Amstrad users to meet and collaborate. I do recognise that it might split communities, and I'd honestly prefer it didn't, but I would like people to be able to use the forums and have another place to scratch that Amstrad itch should they desire it.

Blimey - I almost thought this was Reddit for a minute when I read down the posts ;)
I think it is a cool idea. Extra CPC coverage doesn't split communities it just provides more cool resources and places to collaborate and share news. Plus Discord has Smartphone Apps so it is easy to use when on the move!!
I've joined and I still check this site too...
I hope it does well and best of look Devlin.  :)

Cool to have a realtime chat sometimes too!!
