It's been a long time, and Discord is here to stay as a main communicator.

I think activity on the website would benefit a lot from having an embedded discord chat. It could even be useful on the side of the main game so that people could chat to each other or ask others to come online.

There's a github project online called Titans Embeds Discord that allows you to implement something like this, and it would be a great way to modernize the site and bring activity back.

We had this suggestion submitted before the site was released actually. It wasn’t implemented due to lack of an automatic installer for custom setup. (It would be a privacy issue to otherwise use their existing setup.)

However, having a discord chat in the forums would create too much emphasis on Discord, and take away from the purpose of the forums.

There is a reason we’re pushing Discord so hard right now, that’s because there’s nothing interesting on the forums or games at this point and being in Discord is like having the Pawn Community on your phone.

It might seem like a good idea to add this now, since the forum is the hub that connects you to the games, but in the future the games won’t be in the forum, making the forum independent.

Lastly, it’s not like Discord doesn’t already have support for guests. Anyone can click the invite link and enter as a guest if they don’t yet have an account.

it would be a great way to modernize the site and bring activity back.
Don't worry, the forums and games will be more active after we get the games upgraded and it's feasible to add new content regularly.
