I know for sure that there's still plenty of buzz going around about Homestar and the gang (Especially with the new sbemail released), but my concern is that not a whole lot of people use IRC anymore, I propose that the Admins make an Official Homestar Runner Wiki Discord Server. This way we can do get together and make editing and sharing thoughts a lot easier (If this already exists, Great! Let's try to make it more known) {{unsigned|DonPianta|19:43, 17 August 2017}}

:I agree. IRC Channels are horribly outdated and this would be a great improvement for Wiki discussion. - {{User:Catjaz63/sig}} 22:31, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

:::Now that the topic has been {{p|l=http://hrwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Main_Page&diff=778426&oldid=777799 brought up again}} by an anonny, I still think this is a good idea. I've been on the IRC channel a few times, and it is very inactive. Plus, you can only see messages posted when you are online, whereas with Discord, you can view all messages, making discussions more convenient. This way, you don't have to be online 24/7, and if you exit, you can go back and read messages you've missed. Discord is less outdated and more useful in nearly every way. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 18:51, 3 September 2018 (UTC)

::::Also, this is an especially good idea considering how inactive the forum has been. Discord is a good alternative way to discuss toons and updates, and is practically guaranteed to be more active than the forum, considering how many people use Discord. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 23:37, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

:::::Guess what else is inactive? The Wiki. And as I've said numerous times, there's no point in making a significant change to a Wiki that has lost most of its userbase. {{User:RickTommy/sig}} 02:16, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

::::::You use that as your excuse for everything. Yes, the wiki is less active than it used to be. So what? Why should that keep us from making changes to improve it, and maybe even make it more active? And who's to say this wiki won't become ''more'' active over the years? We may not have that many users right now, but the users we ''do'' have would surely appreciate a more convenient way to communicate. Inactivity shouldn't stop us from making a better wiki. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 06:25, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

::::::How is making a discord channel a “significant change to the wiki” even? -[[Special:Contributions/174.62.238.201|174.62.238.201]] 15:49, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

::::Um, what is this... "Discord" you speak of? [[Teen Girl Squad Issue 15|Is a... food?]] Shoehorned referencing aside, I know I'm only an anonymous contributor that only shows up for small things. I have to admit I haven't logged on to a forum for ten years (ugly memories) and have no social media accounts (I believe they are places of evil that consume their user's brains). So I'm a a lot [[Strong Bad's Technology|behind the times and I prefer it that way]]. So I guess having a dedicated chatroom doesn't really apply to me that much. Guess I'll probably go back to expressing myself in edit summaries and hope I'm understood. [[Special:Contributions/68.37.43.131|68.37.43.131]] 13:16, 15 September 2018 (UTC)
