    I don't know you guys but i like to see some screen shots of the actions and to read the excuses and accusations that comes after it... is part of the spirit... and make us from outside of the battlefield feel better and interested about what happens in the shadows.
    Discord as many other new (anti)social networks usually limit the content that we have access to, we got locked in a content bubble.
    Everyday as member of some discord chat rooms i see lots of screenshots of fights and facts that usually most part of players dont have access.
    Renaissance is not a mainly PvP shard but i think the forums help to make it more popular to the incomers.. see who is who.. the rivalty... gives that human touch to the game.
    i am not suggesting anything... i am just talking about something i think is a fact... and i want to know if someone agreed.
    probably is something that we will need to get used with.

    Discord is the primary tool for most UO players now. Most players now gauge where they wanna be off discord activity more than anything else. So it’s not a bad thing. The forums will be timeless forever either way. Happy holidays !

    Discord is a great tool to use for sure. Its vulgarity that eats me up. But at the same time i guess theres always a negative following a positive.
    There used to be rules such as if you tell another player to Get Good* or you suck etc but apparently it is hard to control and cant be enforced that well. which i guess you cant be everywhere all at once to do so.
    That one dude with the bad jokes really get to me though, makes me wanna pk his azz daily :p

    Yeah i agree, is a new tool that came to help!! definitely... to organize, and to communicate in real time...
    I am only talking about the information posted there simply vanish/disappear between all kinds of talks in the chat room channels... after a wile is posted, on discord, it disappears.. so the incomers will not have contact with the content about fight/pvp for example... the forum will become a desert with no "salt"...

    i believe the forums will stay active here as long as there are stories to be told in Salty Dog and pictures to post of every kind etc. its up to the players to keep it active so lets keep it active. and for 2020 try and keep the animated talk out of the discord for the most part, there is a such thing as fooling around talking smack in PvP its always gonna happen on any game that has it. But can at least try to tone it down or think before you type, i for one are bad at that. You definitely get more bees with honey. It is a eyesore to new players especially. i doubt people go around looking for a place where they can tell someone how bad they suck and how their sister &^%&%&*%&%& their big toe etc etc,,
    I for one will hold back on my rants i know i can be an asshat sometimes with the stupid jokes but i do it on purpose im not a friggin spaz as i seem lol, if ya knew me irl you'd say that cant be you. sadly its my only release as i said before and im my best entertainment, and to anyone i offended i sincerely do apologize. i however will go off on people that go off on me in a animated way or insult others in a vulgar manner, and thats when it is hard for me to hold back. I've always stood up for the person who don't or can't defend themselves whether they want it or not and the habits been hard to kick when i see what i consider bullying... especially one thats only few months to a couple years into the game. this isn't a get good overnight game like WoW it has more mechanics and more risk and as far as i know only game you can loot others in or steal etc on a level to where it pisses them off rofl.
    I by far are not a saint but do try to keep explicit words at bay and do call others out when used.
    i watched many of players leave over discord insults/threats etc and some were really good players and people. Words can offend people or set off shit like PTSD and other disorders for those that do not know any better. Try to think about that possibility before one goes off on another, or choose words more wisely. People don't personally know others in these games for the most part and dont know whats going up in their melon or what kind of condition they are in, or what may be up with them for that moment in time, ya never know.
    Be as kosher as possible i guess, not as in being blessed by a rabbi like a crate full of Vlasic pickles.(dry joke).. If someone gets your goat DM them if ya just got to and say whatever it is, that way its not public and later on ya feel like an idiot after you cool down.
    and it's mainly PvP where there is always gonna be someone pissed off. My way of thwarting this i by jokingly call them *Damned brigands* because every time i do it humors me in a funny way. Had a couple people ask me what the word meant so i guess to them for a time being was insulting. Its an Outlaw lol.
    Have fun y'all and Happy Holidays...

    Discord is free, download it or lose out. That is all there is to it, everyone has equal access.

    The information at discord disapear after a few... what i like about forums is because it works as a wall of shame to the eternity. The prints, trashtalk and etc, will gona stay here forever, to the next generation of players... feeding their imagination about the pvp scene of the shard.
    but i can live with it. maybe i didnt expresed myself properly i am not talking about use or not discord..

    Discord is the same type of platform as IRC, just it doesn't look and operate like it was built by 90s linux admins. IRC and the forums co-existed for the first ~6 years of the server. No reason Discord won't also co-exist with the forums.

    I agree...back in the heyday of stratics, people were using all sorts messenger apps like ICQ, as well as other forums in tandem (PK-HQ lol). It seems to me that the world has evolved and social media has changed peoples' habits in general, not just in uo.
