Discourse has recently released a PRE-ALPHA (whatever that means, sounds dope though) Chat plugin. What I’m pumped about is that it gives a way to discuss plays that allows users to move their messages to a thread easily. What I’m currently envisioning for the usage is legitimately for strict DD conversation, whereas Discord is more casual.
Chat is currently enabled on the #analysis-due-diligence category and can be opened by clicking the “Open Chat” button on the main category page:
This plugin is still being tested, so it likely doesn’t work 100% across all devices, etc. But I figured we’d give it a spin ourselves that way it’s worked in when it makes it eventual real debut.
When chatting, if you’d like to move a message to a thread you highlight the message and select the “Move to Topic” button and confirm by clicking the blue “Move to Topic” button that appears:
Then you’re given several options on where to move the message to:
This looks to be Discourse’s attempt to take a run at Discord and Slack so I’m hopeful that when it’s fully fleshed out, it may serve as a replacement for Discord in the future (especially since it’s Open Source and therefore expandable by our team of talented @Architects)
Good luck this week, more coming very soon.
