Message from Thomas Ryan in Front And Center #general
On riot, I can add all sorts of things to prevent issues. I will let y'all know when it's up.
Are we doing team speak for voice, in that case?
Riot also has voice.
Or was that question directed at Thomas?
I'll be interested to see riot. I played around with it and struggled. Granted it wasn't long.
I checked it out some time ago and it seemed a bit buggy and hard to use. They might have fixed it up since.
Yeah, they have improved a great deal since I last checked.
If I'm going through the effort of setting up something, I'm making sure that it is the best I can offer.
We should just use an aol chartroom.

Sounds good Hussar. Looking forward to seeing it.
PGP encrypted emails, lol.
They killed it last year.
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.
@Hussar Mass phone number collections are somewhat of a bad idea, thus the email fallback.
We'll set up a backup forum or something similar which can serve as a fallback. No need to rush solutions.
What we really need to do is set up a massive nation wide carrier pigeon network
@Oliver Read the social media guidelines in <#364943265545584650> please.
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.
Same concept as Peer to Peer data transfer.
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.
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.
I used to be really into methods to avoid data collection and investigation, so I have picked up a few things.
Here it comes
I'm doing that
Hold on to your butts
Those are their old accounts
Hussar faking his own death. So smart
Now I have to find someone to make a life insurance claim on my former self.
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.
Nah, just one day you look and the server isn't there anymore
Jesus. I almost lol'ed in class.
It would at least be semi-humorous if it did that.
