If there isn't one, I'd love to start one! If there is, may I join?

I'd certainly join one, Vimms Liar have a discord so I don't see why this site couldn't do it too

My experience of Discord in general is a method that sucks away forum users from the initial website. I've seen it on many other forms and in my opinnion it can ruin activity on the Forum/Website. I don't mean to be a negavite nancy, it's just people then become accustomed to Discord and the accessibility then never bother to go on the website - It also sets a divide within the community from Website & Discord users.

If someone were to create a discord server, they would need to clearly indicate in the name that it is unofficial and not run by the site.

Hmm.. You're probably right. I'll hold off on it then

I set one up at one point and was going to see about it being official and I had even tested building a bot that would list out new entries and such, but I figured I was just being whatever so I never really went much further with it.

We already have the forums. I see no point in creating a Discord.

Seconded. It would move communication to another medium and disincentivize forum posting. Not to mention whether or not people would actually use the voice chat which is a large portion of it to begin with.
