A little over a year ago there was a group of regulars who met up on Skype and had many a successful and productive conversations. It was great fun overall and I felt a nice connection with other members who frequented there.

So I've undertaken the process of setting up a discord server for FDR, a voice chat client originally made for gaming enthusiasts which has become a very respectable piece of software in its own right. 

What advantages would this setup have over a Skype/Google group?

Multiple Text and Voice Channels: This lets us organize our thoughts into sub-categories so if we want to focus on issues such a interpersonal or daily occurrences, we can do so without flooding other conversations people might want to have such as parenting. (Which would be less frequent and require more thought)

Easily Accessible: You don't even have to install a client to your computer if you don't want to, it can run through a browser same as the FDR chat (Though you will need your own account)

A tiered permission system which allows for more troll-pruning (Typically not an issue but as FDR grows it might come to be so.)

And personally I find it preferable to Skype due to a lack of ads as well as less memory bloat. 

The downsides I'd note are that it's unfamiliar to the majority of people as well as a slightly lower quality than something like Skype. 

The Channels I think of being useful for the start as are follows.

General Chat - Where daily ordeals will be discussed
Introductions, Timezone, age, main life ventures
Philosophical Discussion: For those who want to dissect and disprove UPB!
Peaceful Parenting: Parenting can be tough, so lets make it easier as a community

Note that this doesn't seek to replace the FDR forums even if it borrows some inspiration from its setup. Instead I hope it can compliment the community by allowing us to connect through an easy to understand application which also has smartphone integration for those who are so inclined.
