From 2016 https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....e-beatles/

I know it might seem unnecessary, but hey: I'd like to chat with some of you in real time so as to get to know you better, and while there are threads for that I did wonder if maybe a quaint little discord chatroom on the side would be too much to ask? Obviously it would have to be something others are interested in, so I can't speak for everyone. Given how the site seems to not have too much traffic at once though there shouldn't be too much upkeep to worry about.

It's not really needed, of course. For all i know we could have a chat room somewhere or have had one in the past that went over like a lead balloon, but I found nothing in the search bar (provided I used it correctly. Sorry if not.) So...what say you guys?

Honestly? I think it'd be fun to have. It would enable us to voice chat as well if we saw fit and that would make things a hell of a lot easier for me personally. I have cerebral palsy (MattWatchingWHEELS, Get it?......it...Its a....it's a double meani---) Anyway, uh, it makes typing a bit harder when i do posts at length. Now, im NOT saying the forum has to stop for me. Im just saying that that would be ONE small thing that would help a discord be of use. I'm not asking for special treatment so please, if you don't see it as a good idea it's fine. That wasn't the reason I brought it up.

That said, I know people would still have to run it, but I mean...heck, I could make it myself if that would be something people were interested in. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Just an idea, no more no less.

IIRC someone tried to start a chatroom type thing before I joined (Pineapplerecords, maybe?) but I don't know if one was actually created. I think there was a thread for it, lemme see if I can find it.

Edit: Yep, here it is.

It's definitely an interesting idea-- I'm not too keen on it myself (talking to people in real time = scary a-hard-days-night-paul-7), but I'm sure plenty of others feel differently. john-lennon-salute_gif

Ah, so there was interest...how interesting!paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Given that the thread is over a year old though, I don't think it wise to bump it as i'm not too sure what the rules are in regards to necro-posting. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I'll just say that in the interest of what @Joe said in the original: Yes, the idea wouldn't be to infringe on anyone. At the most maybe we'd call it the "Unnoficial" BB Discord if we mentioned it at all I assume. Certainly we'd plug it, i'm sure! ahdn_john_08_gif

As for being scared, thats fine. The beauty of chatting is you can do so at your own pace and i'd never begrudge anyone the freedom to sit in a corner and watch. That's what I do in larger rooms, but this wouldn't be too many people (USIIIIIIIIING DISCORD LINES!) to feel small around, I don't think. We're all friends! heart

I'm not averse to it, but my mum would be and she works from home so I rarely get time to myself...

The rules for thread bumping is that we prefer pre existing threads (no matter how old) to be brought back from the dead, rather than create new ones, so we can have all the discussion on one topic in one place.

Hmmm. Very well. It's usually the opposite in other places, hence why I didn't do it. I suppose a mod will have to merge/lock this one (Again. X.x SO sorry. I tried to prevent it this time. truly!)

As for time, thats ok! Im not affected by timezones so i'm pretty much always here. Plus, chats get saved on Discord so you can respond whenever. apple01

Sounds like a reasonable idea. It would probably allow us to dedicate more of our time on the forum to Beatles posting, I guess.

Question - do Discord servers cost money to set up?

Nope! Free. Like I said, I could set a very basic one up right now. 🙂

Then from there you title the different rooms and such and add all the clever bits...still free but, point being just setting it up takes little to no effort john-lennon-salute_gif

Well, this may be difficult to continue seeing as the topic may be locked/merged but I could very quickly whip up a basic server and we all could build from there as a group. It wouldn't be flashy to start. Just something to demo and show people how it works. paul-mccartney-thumb_gifmccartney-shrug_01_gif

We will keep this thread as the active one.

I will lock and redirect the previous threads on this topic. You'd think I'd have picked up on this duplication before. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

From 2016 https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....e-beatles/

From 2017 https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....rd-server/

From 2018 https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....n-paltalk/

To quote Joe's posts from those threads:

Joe said

Thanks for shutting this down Starr Shine?.

Obviously people are welcome to start forums or chatrooms of their own, and can post about them in Pimp Your Stuff. But I'd ask you to please not use BB in the title, whether unofficial or not. Make up your own name for it! If 'Beatles Bible' appears anywhere it suggests some connection to this site, whether or not it's suffixed with 'unofficial'.

The one exception is the downtime forum, which has a very useful purpose when this forum/site is offline, and which I'd have created myself if I'd had the idea.

Thanks to the mods and Ron Nasty for helping with this.

Hi. The Beatles Bible isn't copyrighted (a trademark would be more apt, in any case). "The Beatles" is a trademark owned by Apple Corps, and I'm already skirting the issue by building a non-official brand around the name – hence the disclaimers on every page. They seem pretty cool about fan-related things though.

That said, the BB *is* my brand, and has been for a decade. I've shut down a couple of Twitter impersonators in the past, as it's fairly easy to prove that I've been using this identity across a range of services.

That's not really relevant to this, but as a matter of good faith I would ask you to not use the BB for any third-party endeavours. Go for a generic Beatles chat thing, though – it sounds good!

@MattWatchingWheels, remember that we have the Thread Search Thread where you can ask if a thread already exists on a topic. Go ahead and bookmark that link if you like. As The Hole Got Fixed said, we like to keep all the posts on a theme together as much as we can, so reviving old threads is fine - just not THAT ONE thread about who sang the ahhhs in A Day In The Life paul-mccartney.

Thank you, @Ahhh Girl

Well, fellas....*gulp* I made a work-in-progress server you can check out if you like. BARE WITH ME I'm still getting everything together as far as section organizing and all that, but here's how it works:

Ya go to this link here, see? https://discord.gg/yEnU42

Then, after you've made an account, ya can get in via either the web address OR by downloading discord as a program! They have a mobile version but for some it may be wonky!

Ahem, of course uh, if anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to ask, im just one guy so any help is appreciated! apple01heartbeatlemaniacs_02_gif
