I like Discord but I wonder if, by nature, it's a good fit for dev.to - or at least the whole of dev.to?
I mean I can't help but consider how different the fundamentals of dev.to is to any kind of instant messaging platform...
Yeah, for sure. It's worth thinking about. My thinking is that this community seems really positive and supportive, and it would be nice to get to know each other better. A post/comment system doesn't quite lend itself to that endeavour as nice as real-time chat does.
