    Bumping for awareness. Groups #dots channel is really active and lots of experienced users are already using it so if you need a place to ask discuss this live, this is the place to be at :)

    Consider that unlike a forum, you might not have people around when you ask your question, so you can still make a forum post but link it on discord if you meet someone, so you get best of both worlds.

    In addition it can harm Unity's progress if people only post on discord for dots because Unity might not see the pain points or finer issues of something completely under development right now.

    So having the post on here regardless is beneficial in many ways (and you can just link to the post in discord too).

    Edit: removed some posts below regarding discord channels - ask these questions on Unity's discord instead - this thread is for raising awareness about it, not supporting it.

    I joined yesterday and it's as confusing as I expected from Discord and I don't see much reason to move away from a forum.
    Discord is not even indexed on google so I'm not getting the benefits from it. If anyone says, well, chatting. I don't think chatting is a benefit. The fast pace and multiple chat users usually leads to poorly worded conversations.

    In my opinion we discussed and well raised awareness, regarding how same channel look different, based on user status. I think this is useful information for others, which may be hard to find on channel itself. Specially if someone is not DC oriented. Wouldn't agree on that?

    In the end, where better to ask, so information stay afloat for others ;)

    @Enzi to be honest, I just looking there now. But since February, I may have been there once, or twice.
    Next time I may try use search tool on DC, if anything useful can be extracted. But yes, one is sure, much noise ...
