Great in-depth article comparing the uses of Discord (chat software) and Discourse (forum software).
We have a Discord and a Discourse (this forum) for Panzer Dragoon Legacy, but there’s certainly some overlap in how they are used, and I’ve sometimes asked myself if it helps or hinders us having both.
In particular, I liked the comments in the article about the requirement to create a topic being a “barrier to entry” for newcomers, but I also liked that the positives of forum software were highlighted, such as being indexed by search engines, open source, and generally more organised.
Which do you prefer: Discourse or Discord? Or do you like using both, and it depends on the situation?
Maybe someone will come up with a workable hybrid solution one day.
