Discord eems to be the "thing" right now.
Shall we get our own server? Unlike Teamspeak (which no one seems to be tracking) discord servers are free.
-voice chat... Not as high quality and secure as Teamspeak but decent enough for gaming (push-talk, voice detection, overlay on some games)
-IRC-like chat with history provided if you disconnect (no 24/7 online needed)
-@username highlights in history (a bit buggy on selection though)
-paste images quicker than imgur
-Can start on windows startup
-Has some strange loading messages like LEEEROOOY JEEENKIINS! or It's time, to DU-DU-DUDUDUDU-DUEL!
-Automatically shifts AFK voice connected people to an afk channel
-Admin levels similar to IRC but has their own special title if server creator wishes
-Servers aren't really servers, they're more like channels with super-channels which are hosted byt the server selected (e.g. Sydney, Aus, or Chicago, U.S.)
Lack of features/bugs that are much needed:
-@username highlighting needs to be fixed, im sure it'll be fixed by next year
-there's no ctrl+Find capability for history, only option is to scroll into the abyss to see the 5000th line past the current one
-Supposidly, lack of official IRC bot syncrhonisation, however Slack has the feature and Slack is made by the same guys so it'll probabky be available in the future
-When inviting people, click next to the #general arrow box thing and go to advance settings and set to expire at "never" else people will not reconnect. Many new discord owners forget this when posting a permanent invite link. Also make sure "temporary membership" is not ticked
