2018-07-20 15:21:54 UTC  

We can serve the union buildings with a eviction notice

2018-07-20 15:28:41 UTC  

@Rational Gent Keep tweet promotion to the relevant channel - <#468389204133543946>

2018-07-20 15:29:27 UTC  

Perhaps we should have a #book channel

2018-07-20 15:29:40 UTC  

and an economics channel please

2018-07-20 15:31:10 UTC  

Too much variance and little too niche for this stage. Relax, guys, it's not an encyclopedia haha

2018-07-20 15:33:06 UTC  

@Conscious Caracal @Daniel van Straaten we need a book channel now! This MUST happen

2018-07-20 15:33:28 UTC  


2018-07-20 15:33:57 UTC  

Don't make me banish you to the <#469490581899575297>. No revolts on my watch.

2018-07-20 15:39:48 UTC  

Why not expand and make it home for everyone. It's not like you have to pay a fee or anything to create a room/group? Lol

2018-07-20 16:03:28 UTC  

@Sheamus Seen such extensive catering tried multiple times on different discord servers and it reliably ends up a chaotic mess.

2018-07-20 16:04:20 UTC  

It's the very same problem, in principle, the ever expanding LGBTQI movement has. Trust me.

2018-07-20 16:06:51 UTC  

@Conscious Caracal I wouldnt compare if you do it with structure. If there are people willing to dedicate themselves to such a group, them elevate them to moderate it guided by set of principles that govern all other groups. It's when you do away with that structure of enforcing the principle, that it inevitably becomes a mess.

2018-07-20 16:09:35 UTC  

I am sure Malcolm would accept the responisibility of maintaining order in that group

2018-07-20 16:09:39 UTC  

That's way to complex a system for this stage, sorry mate.

Nowhere do you see a server with a 100 different sub sections, unless you have a rock solid structure and team.

The effort and time you're proposing vastly exceeds the current benefits.

2018-07-20 16:11:56 UTC  

Why undermine us though like we are children? Not attacking you, just reasoning with you. It does come across as not having much faith in us... if a group becomes a problem or idle for too long with no maintenance i am sure it can be closed down with little criticism.

2018-07-20 16:13:15 UTC  

What? 😂 Not investing in luxuries due to resource constraints is not treating you like children. You'll survive without these niche channels until we have a stronger server structure in place, relax, my dude.

2018-07-20 16:13:52 UTC  

What resource constraint though, if Malcolm wishes to accept the responsibility, it is his time, not yours.

2018-07-20 16:14:02 UTC  

Sure no problem lol

2018-07-20 16:14:15 UTC  

Willems channel has grown a lot in the last few days, let it simmer and settle

2018-07-20 16:14:20 UTC  

just again, not attacking you, dont take it the wrong way lol

2018-07-20 16:15:35 UTC  


2018-07-20 16:15:37 UTC  

Caught up

2018-07-20 16:17:49 UTC  

@Sheamus A discord server with niche channels is only dignified if said niche falls in with the core of the server. (1). (2) You populate additional channels as your discord server grows. Otherwise it becomes a complicated mess. We will be hitting 200 Members total this weekend with an active user list of +- 40-50 users active on peak hours. That is small.

2018-07-20 16:18:33 UTC  

We will be supplying you with all the channels you need to the best of our abilities, but will not create channels that only has 2 posts an hour.

2018-07-20 16:18:42 UTC  

Dead channels = cancer

2018-07-20 16:19:12 UTC  

Take <#469596463345958912> as an excellent example. Good idea in principle, especially for the future. But it's dead at the moment.

2018-07-20 16:19:50 UTC  

Yes I agree, but if someone is going to take on a group, they are going to do the necessary marketing to attract attention, like I said, if it becomes idle for too long, or a problem, can put an end to it with little issue.

2018-07-20 16:19:53 UTC  

Give us time to structure the server's bread-and-butter channels first.

2018-07-20 16:20:13 UTC  

lol this is not a fraternity 😄
