Discord chat for UE4 devs

We already have over 2000 people using Slack:

oh i didn’t knew about it

I tried Discord and I didn’t quite like it. I like Telegram because it has virtually no limit on upload size (discord has 8MB), it’s available on more devices and platforms, and there is a reply function which discord lacks. There is no dedicated UE4 dev group but there is a gamedev and a graphics group. join the graphics group here and ask us to invite you to the gamedev chat.

Discord is excellent for voice chat, that’s where it’s strengths lie (for example, a game server with two teams can easily both hop into the same Discord server and have shared text chat, but separate voice chat channels that can be dropped in and out of freely).

could you explain me guys why you’re outside discord?

Sweet, logging in now!

So many people, not so active? Or is it me?

There is another discord group with a bunch of the Discord Devs and Unreal Devs:

Just be sure to never reveal any personal information on Discord. The channels are heavily monitored and data is collected. You can do your own research on Google but it appears the guy who runs Discord has a history of spying and selling personal data

Can you link to some quality articles about Discord privacy?
The ‘Surveillance-Economy’ wheel just keeps rolling rolling. :stuck_out_tongue:
I’m down to about one App now… Its called ‘Signal’! - FTR!
Meanwhile Privacy Shield is coming under new scrutiny too…

I could but I would be banned from this forum. There have been documented cases where Discord has forwarded personal information to a group that specializes in doxing. Like I said, I can not say more here because I want to keep my account. You can either do your own research, believe me, or don’t believe me, up to you. All I want to do is give people here a heads up. Whether you take my advise or not is your choice.


Banned… Why? Epic is quite pro-privacy as corps go.
As long as the link isn’t just some inflammatory Reddit…
If its not send me the link by PM, I don’t mind posting it…
Privacy is too important a topic now to just self-censor…

Any updates on that link about discord? Id like to use the service, but I want to know @Wallenstein knows…

I will NOT post anything here, but you can do your own research on the guy who runs discord and his history (OpenFeint just go to Wikipedia) and there are many articles by people claiming that the contents of their chat has been leaked.
Now I’m not saying you can’t use Discord to talk to people about Unreal Bugs or Marketplace sets. what I’m saying is to NOT use your personal info there and to consider using a VPN

Thanks guys!!!

Regardless it’s just common sense to not mention personal info in such places not even in forums like this >.< Having a different handle/email for different places can be a little nice sometimes especially to reduce harm when being compromised. And having different passwords for different things >.> If you take a hit because you weren’t careful in these regards it’s no one else’s fault.

It’s very easy to write things that capture logs from places like discord, irc, forums, you name it. It’s just text to scrape. Some people do it to test their homebrew ai for things like trying to spot accounts with potentially the same owner by finding speech patterns or whatever else. Some do it for statistical research. Some do it just for fun. Your accountable for what you type in public. It may never go away.

You can buy a bundle to upload larger amount of files in Discordapp or you can use for example MediaFire.

​​​​​​Well I was kickbanned permanently Unreal Slackers(they don’t tolerate music meme gag jokes,pirated software so I guess metaphorically this means no bootlegs-remade or demade retro video games from 80’s and 90’s,no copyrights infringement so I guess no mentioning of old Epic Games PC games from early and late 90’s I guess same goes for former employees so PTSD or negative manners similar to schizophrenia results sudden ban,no NSFW behaviors such as stalking,doxxing, prying in someone’s private life,grooming,sexting, flirting in unreal slackers discord server. 3 years have been pass since this thread was closed.…ine-developers
How unfortunate that Fortnite Battle Royale forum moved to and was switched to Reddit. I can’t even find forum archives in Way Back Machine.

I don’t understand the issue. If you are like me, in the US, everything we say, do or flush is databased in real time, in perpetuity. Data is the new oil, except it never goes bad.
So, say you dox yourself, I don’t see how you weren’t already doxxed. Discord, if you look at it’s background tasks is as much a data vacuum, as is twitter, google, …, firefox, …, anything on the computer. WWW stood for world wide wiretap for a reason.
What happens if you discuss Marketplace items? The creator cries or something? Wouldn’t bugs found be just free QA/QI for the Unreal devs? What am I missing?


Curious if it was time to join-the-herd. :stuck_out_tongue: Took a deeper look but didn’t like what I found:

Discord as a substitute / replacement / companion tool to Answer-Hub and the Forums - :cool:
Discord as a useful promotional tool for building up a community to help launch a game - :cool:
Discord for work / business? Not without E2EE! Just too many reasons to distrust them - :(:

Discord = Facebook-4-gamers = Invasive tracking + Lack of privacy + Data breach risks!
If they ever add E2EE messaging then maybe. But the founders just don’t seem to DGAF.
And they started out with a cynical contempt for user data same as Zuck.:eek: Alarm bells
