Hey guys!

I know we use mumble for our voice comms, and it works pretty well, but we do struggle with donut heads and drive-by trolling, as well as a lack of being able to admin our channel appropriately.

I was recently introduced to another VoIP client called Discord. It's 100% free, and even has an in-browser app so no downloads necessary. It separates out voice and text, so you can be in multiple text channels, and keep voice completely seperate. It also keeps text history, even when you are logged out. It's also invite-only servers, so we can keep trolls to a minimum.

Something to think about? I know there are some benefits to sticking with mumble, and I'm not 100% sold on Discord yet, but it seems much nicer and more polished than mumble.

Poll up if you just wanna vote and not type. =] Note that the poll is just opinions, I just want to have a discussion around our VoIP. =]

If Mumble is a problem, well it0uchpods created a private free Mumble server where there are multiple admins (me included) with a serious OPRF channel I manage. It's not frequently used but if required we could improve it. So e.g when we have a major event and we want to avoid people coming in and yelling non-sense stuff and similar (happened often recently, at least to me), we would have a Mumble channel dedicated only to it with admin privilege for OPRF channels which can be extended to many of us.
What do you think?

Since I have Discord up alongside mumble every night anyways, if any of you wanted to check out Discord, here's the link/invite to the OPRF server: https://discord.gg/yWe6BET

Our discord server now has a bot!

Type ?help to see all commands.

All I ask is that if you wanna use the music feature, go to the music voice channel.

If you'd like your github updates to appear in server, send me a PM here or on discord.

OK I voted Mumble that is my preference but both is fine. I just wonder if people would keep both open. Maybe there should be an AFK room for people who are not actually on or just don't log in. Every time I have gone to discord people are on the site or logged into the app but not there. My other issue is that its not Linux friendly.

I added an AFK "rank", so if you want to show yourself as AFK, type in ?rank AFK

the mumble server isn't nearly as active as it was it appears. I've been on it periodically since I came back.
