On riot, I can add all sorts of things to prevent issues. I will let y'all know when it's up.

arcloop 2018-02-26 23:33:33

Are we doing team speak for voice, in that case?

hussar 2018-02-26 23:33:43

Riot also has voice.

hussar 2018-02-26 23:34:10

Or was that question directed at Thomas?

Josh OH 2018-02-26 23:46:16

I'll be interested to see riot. I played around with it and struggled. Granted it wasn't long.

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-26 23:46:56

I checked it out some time ago and it seemed a bit buggy and hard to use. They might have fixed it up since.

hussar 2018-02-26 23:47:27

Yeah, they have improved a great deal since I last checked.

Josh OH 2018-02-26 23:50:46

In terms of useability, i thought RC was more friendly, but ur right, no encryption. But we could just regularly purge channels like we do on discord. Technically all of discord is not encrypted.

hussar 2018-02-26 23:51:38

If I'm going through the effort of setting up something, I'm making sure that it is the best I can offer.

Patrick MI 2018-02-26 23:53:12

We should just use an aol chartroom.

Patrick MI 2018-02-26 23:53:27

56k circa 1995

Josh OH 2018-02-26 23:54:17

Sounds good Hussar. Looking forward to seeing it.

hussar 2018-02-26 23:54:30

PGP encrypted emails, lol.

Josh OH 2018-02-26 23:55:33

AIM?

hussar 2018-02-26 23:56:09

They killed it last year.

hussar 2018-02-27 00:01:06

I think this underscores the importance of having the phone number of everyone in your area, as well as a few select individuals from outside of it. This way we can create a web through which we can pass data, should we be shoahed by the Discord Jew.

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:01:49

@Hussar Mass phone number collections are somewhat of a bad idea, thus the email fallback.

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:02:20

We'll set up a backup forum or something similar which can serve as a fallback. No need to rush solutions.

FASHRABBIT 2018-02-27 00:03:19

What we really need to do is set up a massive nation wide carrier pigeon network

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:04:34

@Oliver Read the social media guidelines in <#364943265545584650> please.

hussar 2018-02-27 00:04:40

Not centralized, sure. But decentralized is in my opinion good. I.E. I get the number for all IL guys and then Jelly, Halfdan, and Charly, who each have the numbers for their guys, plus two others outside of their state. If anything happens, we can quickly disseminate information, without any one person knowing the info of everyone.

hussar 2018-02-27 00:05:15

Same concept as Peer to Peer data transfer.

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:06:48

Even so, I've known folks to freak out and go nuts and start risking folks' information with little to no warning. That's how I was doxxed, btw, gave some personal info out of convenience to guys I thought wouldn't use it against me. There are times when cell #'s are useful, but in general I'd avoid it with all but the most trusted people.

For the time being, since we're not engaged in illegal activity or anything similar, and Discord does a bad job of moderating things, we've got time to set up a backup with proper functionality.

hussar 2018-02-27 00:09:49

Cheap prepaid SIM cards could work. Have one guy volunteer, such as myself, and buy a bunch, then distribute them. Now you have a burner phone. My phone supports dual-SIM, so that works for me at least. But I agree, I'm just trying to suggest possible contingency plans.

hussar 2018-02-27 00:12:29

I used to be really into methods to avoid data collection and investigation, so I have picked up a few things.

Dustin 2018-02-27 00:23:57

Here it comes

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:24:07

I'm doing that

Dustin 2018-02-27 00:24:10

Hold on to your butts

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:24:11

Those are their old accounts

Dustin 2018-02-27 00:24:20

Oh ok

hussar 2018-02-27 00:24:26

lol

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:24:36

Don't worry.

Dustin 2018-02-27 00:25:15

Hussar faking his own death. So smart

hussar 2018-02-27 00:26:47

Now I have to find someone to make a life insurance claim on my former self.

Thomas Ryan 2018-02-27 00:26:50

I wonder if they actually banned the server, if our bot would be spamming "left the server" announcements as we sink under the icy waves.

Jelly MI 2018-02-27 00:27:14

Sad!

FASHRABBIT 2018-02-27 00:27:17

Nah, just one day you look and the server isn't there anymore

hussar 2018-02-27 00:27:26

Jesus. I almost lol'ed in class.

Jelly MI 2018-02-27 00:27:49

It would at least be semi-humorous if it did that.
