    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.

  • hussar #general [server: Front And Center] view

    Feb 26, 2018 11:47:27 PM

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

    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.

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

    Sounds good Hussar. Looking forward to seeing it.

    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.

  • Thomas Ryan #general [server: Front And Center] view

    Feb 27, 2018 12:02:20 AM

    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

    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.

  • Thomas Ryan #general [server: Front And Center] view

    Feb 27, 2018 12:06:48 AM

    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.

    Hussar faking his own death. So smart

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

  • Thomas Ryan #general [server: Front And Center] view

    Feb 27, 2018 12:26:50 AM

    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.

    Sad!

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

  • hussar #general [server: Front And Center] view

    Jesus. I almost lol'ed in class.

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

  • Thomas Ryan #general [server: Front And Center] view

    Feb 27, 2018 12:28:09 AM

    I've had a server deleted on me once. There's a middle period where members are just disappearing with channels and stuff. I used that to log down all the members.
