Often I want to have extended conversations with you all. This platform is not good for conversations. Being able to drop a link to a Discord server where such conversations could take place seems nice. What do you all think?
Discord is very good in many ways. The biggest downside to Discord is that the conversations are not publicly archived in a searchable way.
In one of my hobbies, casual conversations between experts used to take place on forums. The natural evolution of that desire for well-archived conversations between experts is StackExchange itself.
Today, many casual conversations between experts happen on Discord, but those conversations are isolated from the rest of the internet -- no Google search reveals them, and when a Discord disappears, the conversations are lost to the public. When a forum disappears, the conversations are still archived at the Internet Archive.
This doesn't mean "don't create a Discord," of course, but it's worth mentioning.
