IRC is dead. Long live Discord chat

Post by Steven » Sat Mar 09, 2019 4:28 pm

All,

After a year of little to no in-quali and in-race chat, we're back this year. Our previous IRC channel is out of use, and instead, we have set up a Discord server (all credits to Vyssion for pointing that one out).

Advantages over IRC:
  • Ability to post images and use smilies
  • We've got multiple channels (chatboxes) available on our server (we'll use #general-chat for race chats). Check them out!
  • Discord can be used from within our live racing hub (as guest), but also through the app or website
  • Growing platform, modern technology
You'll be able to join as a guest at https://www.f1technical.net/live/ , but you may as well join directly through
https://discord.gg/Jc5X7yn

Feel free to check it out. Looking forward to your feedback!

Very nice idea. Will speaking also be provided?

There are some voice channels set up as well.
We'll see how everything unfolds.

Also, just like before, please use the same nickname on discord as in the forum.

To do this, click the F1 Technical drop down in the top left on the discord server and then select [Change Nickname]. This should only change it for that server.
