  • vipersnail 🐌Hermit❤️Snail🐌 (@vipersnail) reported

    @Exklusiv Also I'm super good at reading- anyway it's just a messaging service for video games and stuff. It's a great alternative to skype and stuff as it's usable both in app and on browser (I use browser exclusively as I hate the app)

    You all need to calm down in my DM supporter or not. Respect me and my time. ***** talking isn’t free. Want to see me online book a Skype session or wait for me to go live on MFC or SM. Want to meet me prepare to be screened, send a deposit and pay for my time.

    DUDE DISCORD FR BE DOWN AGAIN. **** IT, MOVING TO SKYPE

  • Luna_Pixu Luna Pixu (TR) (@Luna_Pixu) reported

    @rexart35 Yeah... Skype's kinda fortunate to be own its own infrastructure (as it's a Microsoft property). Discord is reliant on Google's Cloud service for better and for worse. As we can see here, if one gear in the machine jams, the whole thing falls apart.

  • JHNR2003Online JoeHatch (@JHNR2003Online) reported

    Discord outage again so I am going straight to work with setting up backups on both TeamSpeak and Skype. Hoping this is resolved soon so we don't have to do what we did yesterday. If this is resolved by 11-11:30 we should be good.
