We Should Create a discord server for parrot OS, Our Rival blackarch has done the same a while ago and I think We should do the same.
Yeah i admit i like discord.
I would guess the issues being: chats arnt secure and its another application to moderate/ admin.
I know ‘BetterDiscord’ supports ‘DiscordCrypt’, but i have never used it and dont know how its implemented.
i’m not a big fan of discord, i prefer other communication systems like xmpp
I’ve liked Hexchat in the clear net and also how it integrates with TOR. I see we have dino preinstalled but I haven’t registered any account yet. Or where I could connect and find akin people on our subjects. Specs for xmpp protocol look amazing indeed.
So has anyone decided to create a Discord channel?
discord is a centralized proprietary server.
we don’t want to migrate our community on places we can’t control.
the only exception was with telegram which has a pretty strange relationship with the open source world that we don’t like, but if we tolerate our presence on telegram considering it a legacy of our past, we would never accept to make the same error now with a centralized application again.
we are developing a new federated, decentralized and secure alternative to mainstream communication systems built on top of the latest XMPP XEPs (yes, xmpp is a very modern protocol with a lot of very interesting features) and we are working on our own dedicated forks of very beautiful xmpp clients that use omemo by default (omemo is the e2e crypto protocol used by signal which is way better than otp)
this communication system will be free for anyone and we are working to release ready to use wizards to allow common people to build not only simple standalone nodes of this network, but also pretty complex clusters in an automatic and secure way (to set up a xmpp server in a secure way is a pretty hard task)
we also understand that a discord-like portal would be nice for just our community and public chats, and if our xmpp-based solution would not prove to be a valid alternative, we would consider to host a https://rocket.chat/ instance just for the parrot community, as it provides all the modern capabilities and user experience of discord
of course we are going to build bridge bots to synchronize messages between telegram, xmpp, rochetchat and irc, but we are not intentioned to gibe our users in the hands of discord and there is no way to convince us of the opposite
