Scale Models Community discord!
Posted by ziP on Thursday, November 01, 2018 1:51 PM

Note: I do not mean to spam. I do not work for a website or other publication, this discord is owned and managed completely by my own volition and desire to talk and communicate with all modelers everywhere, without needing to go to multiple forums. I just wanted everything in one place. 

 

I love model cars. That's why I'm here, obviously. I've been ghosting for about a year and came out of hiding to ask anyone to join my Discord server thats for anything and everything self-built models. I have been browsing multiple forums and different magazines on this hobby, and haven't ever run into a single discord based on it. So I decided to make one myself. Anyone and everyone is welcome! If my advertising this here is not welcome, I understand and will remove the post if it isn't removed for me. 

 

https://discord.gg/fDJfHVC This is the invite to the discord. Please read the rules before participating.

The point is to go to the seperate text channels and post pictures/talk about models. You and other people create the discussion, its not like a forum. It's like meeting someone and saying "Hey, check this out!" and then you talk about whatever 'this' is. if you dont like it, don't join.

Calm down Barney Fife. It's not spam. It could be an alternative to forums that are drying on the vine.

I am wary of the opening post. There is much about to be suspisious about, especially the repeated and curious use of the word 'discord'. Even the link itself uses the word 'discord'. Discord means disagreement and lack of harmony. If you re-read the opening post, but replace the word 'discord' with 'disagreement', it doesn't make sense with regard to the creation of a new community, or at least not a community I would be interested in joining.

I believe the intent was to use the word 'discourse', which means discussion. This is a significant error, and I don't believe it is an error that would have been made by a legitimate party.

There are other grammatical perculiarities which make me suspicious as well, not to mention the general vibe of the thing. Plus, such promotion is against SA forum policies. Just my two cents worth.

I am reporting this as spam, and I am certainly not clicking on the link. If anyone has better intel, please enlighten me.

Plow boy has issues with me because I don't see the problems he complained about with the new Mobius Ford pickup. He thinks because one does not see a problem worth whining about that one does not know the subject. Hog hooey.

"Discord" is the name of the app. It's a server that people use to talk and communicate. If you dknt believe me, simply Google the app itself. It's free and nothing to be scared of. Dont be one of those old men who thinks hes careful on the internet then gets done in by a tech support caller

Wow, calm down folks. This is not spam. No need to get so worked up, this is a free online forum, there's bigger fish to fry. The original OP is fine. I've clicked the link and it's 100% relevant.
