Honestly, this sounds like a suggestion I could get behind. Don't get me wrong, I love JoyFreak and I love talking with other posters. We could use JoyFreak as the main communication, and have discord as an IRC-Chat analog. Maybe.
And Discord is really nice. You're right, there are plenty of gaming communities with Discords and live chat is good. But I like JoyFreak, and it's grown to a big site.
