NOT OFFICIALLY AFFILIATED WITH THE SNN. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO JOIN. NO ONE IS FORCING YOU.


Those of you who are in the Sonic News Network Skype group(s) will know that the Reckless Admin Tag Team™ has launched a new social platform in the form of Discord, an all-in-one text and voice chat complete with many features that make it preferable to other VoIPs such as Ventrilo, Mumble, TeamSpeak, and Skype.

What's all the hubbub about?

SNNDiscordChat

For years the Sonic News Network community has used third-party software to communicate outside of the wiki. From XAT to Skype, each of these applications had its pros and cons. XAT had a limited reach and was unappealing to most. Skype looked fresh and modern, but since the Microsoft acquisition it has been free-falling into oblivion rapidly. The Sonic News Network chat offers a simple solution based on the SNN itself. But no longer need you suffer through lackluster VoIP software! The Reckless Admin Tag Team™ has launched the Discord chat!

Why can't we just use the chat? Why can't we use Skype?

Chat

Good question! Some people seek to get away from the strict rules of chat. Others want a dedicated service that is specifically designed to be a chatroom. The SNN Discord offers both! Discord is a dedicated text and voice service with many great features!

Skype

Skype is laggy, uses too much RAM and CPU, has no moderation tools, isn't as pretty as Discord, and doesn't have the embed links feature. I could go on for days.

So how do I join?
