Zelda Cavern Possible Discord Chat/Subreddit

  • Recently, I've been addicted to this new chat app called Discord, which can operate through internet browsers, downloading it onto your desktop, and it even works on mobile devices. It honestly is my favorite chatting application ever. I know we have an IRC channel, but adding a Discord channel could potentially increase traffic to the site, especially if we make a subreddit of some sorts on Reddit. I've gotten into this odd mood that makes me want to have the site grow into one giant community, more than the many members we have on here. Please let me know what you think of this, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. If we end up coming to the conclusion that these will be made, I'll gladly start them up if need be.


  • I have a disccord account and the Spanish side has its account. I can create the group for us.


    I'll post here the address once I get it.


    The subreddit, that I would rather leave it to your discretion, Lexatom, as I don't know much of reddit.

  • I think I'm going to hold off on the subreddit for a while.

  • Meanwhile in the Spanish side a guy told me we could try to create an amino (mobile community) so that's three ideas I am thinking about.
    Out of the three disccord sounds like a compliment more so that something that will be competing against ourselves. Discccord is an excellent tool to have voice chats, so organising a get together to say play a game or just chat in real time sounds pretty cool. Other than that it is yet another chat. our third for the community.


    The sub-reddit and amino I think should be something that compliments and not competes with the forum if it happens, so maybe something more specialised that hasn't been done yet. Amino already has a Zelda community amino, so maybe something focused in the fan-fiction and fan-art or something would attract more than just another general Zelda community. If we can score something that even the users of the general Zelda amino likes it could work in our favour. Same for reddit, we need that sub-reddit to be something different and inclusive that attracts the users of other Zelda sub-reddits.

    Amino would be impossible for me. I don't have a phone. ;~;

  • The amino thing I see it working more for the Spanish side, as tehre are not as many spanish speaking aminos as there are users, but if I end up making something I'd most likely double it and have one in each language.
    Also, It should be something to complement the experience, so you should not be missing anything big, @Lexatom. It should be a perk. same with reddit. I am sure Disccord is the easiest to see how it already works as a complement.


    ADDED: I made a Zelda Cavern discord group
    This is the invite link: http://discord.gg/bseqdyw
    It won't expire, so feel free to share it at any time. :)


    ADDED: Now we just need to get ideas for the reddit and/or Amino things. :XD:

    I'll start inviting a bunch of my friends to the site. I could've done that earlier, but I didn't. No idea why. :p

  • Still don't see the point of a subreddit, since it comes across as the Zelda subreddit except less active.


    Yeah, that is why I would like to make it something less general than just "zelda". It would work better if we focussed in one thing of the Zelda series that reddit doesn't cover or is not having a subforum for that a lot of people could enjoy. I am not familiar to know what could those topics be, maybe zelda fiction or something.


    With the amino, I probably will leave it for the Spanish side.

    My wife keeps reminding to join the discord thing. So I will soon.


    He's in!
