Testing out chat. Thought it might be quite good for stuff like live events/videos/comps etc.
Or can just leave it up for hilare bants etc

Is this basically a replacement for DMs?
That’s one of the issues - people don’t know when to use chat vs DMs vs forum etc. It’s not supposed to be a replacement for DMs.
That’s why I thought it would be better for just events. But I don’t know, that’s why I’m sticking it on. But I think it’s just another thing we’ll have to moderate and potentially get in trouble for
It’s like when Instagram introduced the stories. It just divides content between two separate interfaces, imo. Probably best to just keep it all on the forum for manageability.
But maybe I am being a dinosaur. I have succumbed to using Instagram stories.
Edit: actually, looks like I haven’t understood Chat. Thought it was just going to be a big forum free for all. Actually it’s much more personal that that.
That was my first thought. Could be funny but would just end up as the pointless topics thread. Bring back that group MSPaint thing if you’re going to have something like that.
I could see chat being better functionality wise that DMs but don’t really see the point in having both. Like Dent said it’s just creating more mediums for the same thing. I don’t talk to anyone on here anyway though so what do I know.
