« on: August 24, 2016, 03:07:51 am »
Hello! Welcome, if you are new (Or not!). There are currently three places where you can meet and talk with people who play X-PirateZ.

1) The forum, duh.

2) Discord Channel.
https://discord.gg/7f58BnS

3) IRC Channel!
http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=x-piratez

All of them have active members who will happily answer any question you have, and you can always hang out and share your experience with the game!

Nothing against Discord, but we've had an IRC up for a while now, and there are a few regulars who hang out there.

Can we make this sticky or that Dioxine/Meridian makes a official thread about the places where people can come and chat with other players? New people joined the IRC because you posted it in my thread actually

Before using discord it really helps to read and understand the privacy terms of service: https://discordapp.com/privacy

To be honest, i wouldn't use such a service. to much data sniffing, IRC is better =)

I can't really see anything I'd care about, but I am no expert and I understand your point. Could you specify which points are worrying?

But anyway, it's not like I have a choice... 100% of Piratez-related interaction (apart from this forum) is on Discord.

Yep. Discord has become the default XPirateZ and OXCE+ dev hangout space for brainstorming, player questions, and just generally talking about anything.

My weblink to the XPirateZ channel for those interested:

https://discordapp.com/channels/217792132633591809/217792132633591809

(and yeah, can all be done through a browser with no need for installing a client on your PC)

The issues that i see in discords policy are that it's quite nebulous and wide covering on several points. Normally such wide areas would be refined in following paragraphs and clauses. This document is however quite short and open to interpretation. The worst case is they can freely hand the info they gather(sufficient data about your device to track/hijack it at a whim) and any info you provide them(the full content of messages+any linked social media) to anyone they care too. The only restraint is "in a manner consistent with this privacy policy".  Given the briefness of the policy itself that clause means almost nothing.

Mostly this sort of thing is not a problem and pretty common in internet concerns trying to function worldwide. Just be aware that a data breach could occur and cost you the machine you used discord on, even without the app. Also note that anything you say could end up anywhere and you MIGHT have no legal recourse to defend yourself.

99.99% percent of the time nothing will ever happen but the one in a million will supremely bite the end user in the butt. Be cautious and aware of the possibilities.

I use discord frequently myself but i know how to mitigate the risks to my hardware and accept that the internet is the internet, anything i say will live forever and be interpreted as stupidly as possible by somebody.
