I do like Discord, but does it seem like it kind of killed forum activity? This wouldn't be the first time I've seen this happen to a community.
Rather than that, I've noticed that when there's a lot of activity on the Discord, there tends to be more activity on the forums as well, and when the Discord is quiet, the forums are also quiet. In our case, I guess Discord promotes quick development and discussion of things which then find their way back to the forums.

Hmm, maybe I'm just projecting in this case then. I mean, I'd want whatever's best for a community, Discord server or forum, and if a Discord server turned out to be better for us in the long run, then so be it, but forums seem to be a better long-term "medium" for this kind of community because messages are more permanent, so that was my concern.
