Replacement for the old live chat

Sat Nov 24, 2018 6:28 am

I miss the Airliners.net live chat, but I'm surprised there was no discussion of what could've replaced it. This discussion, if you ask me, is long overdue.

Would it be possible for us as a community to set up an unofficial replacement for the live chat -- one that we can collectively manage along with the mods? Maybe a Discord server or a Mattermost instance (an open-source version of Slack, and is free for everyone if we can install one on A.net servers) might do well for the community, giving us a meaningful real-time alternative to just forum posts.

While yes, the old chatroom suffered from lack of traffic, I still think a live chat has its uses. I wonder who else thinks the same?
