Question for all of you out there that I've been thinking over recently.
When we re-launched the forum last year, I bought a Discord integration module for the forum that would connect a discord server to the forum.
After the forum was up and going and I was spending time reorganizing, upgrading and so on I just lost interest in doing it (aka laziness and lack of interest).
But now that I've found tons of discord integration tools like widgets and ways to share posts back and fourth, I've been considering starting a discord server to make our community more accessible to more people. I've floated the idea to a few friends that have their own servers, but there has not yet been interest in using their server to integrate with, which I understand. So I created a discord server and was thinking of setting up the integration tools because it seems as though some people are intimidated by the forum, which I kind of understand that it can seem intimidating at first when you're familiar with platforms like discord, but it's pretty user friendly with many more features but that's another topic.
The pros are that it could broaden our reach and get more people interested.
The cons are that it's time spent setting it up, managing the server, most of the stuff we use most like the calendar wouldn't be integrated and everyone and their sister has their own servers now, there are too many to keep track of already. So it'll take effort and time to even get people there and I don't want to water down the content we already have here on the forum. As of now I don't really think it would be worth the time and energy investment it would take and I kind of like being different and having a place of our own. (And of course I have an unhealthy distaste for discord)
So I'm looking for input. Do any of you think this would be worth the time?
