The fuck happened to just having a wiki. Lord. This shouldn’t bother me as much as it does but it just makes things so much more difficult than it needs to be. Discords are not an easy way to peruse a knowledge base of information. And on top of that now if I wanna keep up to date on Wagner bnbs I have to be subjected to a bunch of smelly weeb opinions. I’m tired
Me: can I just get like a basic outline on this character/class/weapon
“Oh join The Swept Plains discord. Sure it’s all geared towards super duper endgame content, but I dunno maybe there’s something in there for beginners. I dunno. Helping people is hard.”
Deadass this is the oldest I’ve ever felt. There is a discord for every single individual character in fighting games now. I miss forums so much
@mint Fucking valid mood right here.
@mint that's some dystopian shit
@mint Recently had to join a Discord to get a link to a Google doc with a link to a download of a file that I could then upload to a web app.
@caelyn literally got told to join a discord to get a google doc link pinned to the top of a channel when I could have just. Gotten sent the link.
@mint in the aughts while browsing the forums I used to tie an onion to my keyboard cord, as was the fashion of the time...
@mint I have never understood discord. It's too much, like joining a hundred rooms back on IRC but it's for everything, even a single "server" can have dozens of rooms how is anyone even meant to keep up?
@mint Its a real blinder that Discord have played to be honest. They have had some really good software and then managed to link it so closely to gaming that it's just eaten everything else.
@mint *stares at wikia*
@mint wikis have already been discord'd
@mint u know whats worse than being told to join a discord????? joining the discord then just getting linked to a reddit thread or a youtube video once you ask for help there
@mint Tbh, using stuff like Discord chat "knowledge bases" and video "user manuals" is just "free speech" tech bros finding new ways to force us to listen to them yap on about shit we don't care about.
Because they're so needy for attention that they can't be bothered to earn it.
Fuck that shit.
@mint seconded. Wiki good, discord bad.
