Default Should we kill skype chat?

hey Marv floated this idea in the skypechat that in order to save ZP we need to kill the skype chat

I'm going sort of back and forth on the idea but I think he might be right?

we might all just sort of want zp to finally slip into that dark goodnight though so like here's the poll

killing the skype chat isn't going to make everyone in the skype chat rush back to zp, we'd only be losing contact with people if we did that. also skype is better for off-the-cuff and immediate conversations. if you want to save zp, just post here more. it doesn't have to be an either/or thing, people are more than capable of using both, and zp can be better for some types of conversations. killing off one very useful form of communication to save another is dumb.

Yeah basically this though maybe when we get into our long discussions of gender or politics we should bring them here.

Also VX. VX should only be discussed here.

This makes sense to me. I know I'm guilty of posting stuff on Skype when it would actually be better placed here, just because it's more convenient in the moment. I say keep both.

Ever consider Discord? Would save Zeldapower community, unlimited chat, unlimited voice chat. If you wanted to skype and use video chat, you still could. Would bring more activity to website and build a better fanbase.

Eh, I'm going to disagree. Skype is better suited for how we tend to communicate with one another. The forums might be better for long-form discussions and whatnot, but how often do we have those?

Having said that, I prefer the forums. Skype will never quite replace them.

Oh lol I didn't realise you took my suggestion this seriously. It was just an idea, but not a super serious one. I think overall Skype is good for the quick uninterrupted chat, but it definitely moves along quite quickly and a lot of good conversation is lost in the sense that you can't go back and view it as easily as you would in the forums.
