If a program is free it’s your data they make money from

Funny the first thing that happens when I go to that site is a popup asking me to give THEM info :wink:

You’re browsing the internet without a javascript blocker? You’re a brave brave woman.

Javascript wouldn’t dare

I must’ve been asleep when javascript became a bad thing. Is it a “JS can let anyone take over your computer” type of thing? Should I tell my browser to never run JS?

Actually, I tried that and it changed the forums so that I couldn’t post this question, so I had to add the forums as an exception. Is that what you guys do? I use chrome on a pc.

Javascript has always been a bad thing. Just like Google Analytics has always been a bad thing.

From the very first introduction of JS and the resulting popup window spam, I’ve had it blocked by default, with only certain specific websites in my whitelist.

It has its uses, for sure, but the amount of websites not working without JS for no reason at all, except for ‘we want to track you’ and ‘we NEED the pretty menus’ is stupid.

But trackers, cross site scripters, browser history hijackers, home menu replacements, search bar replacements, etc are all javascript, and all used by various websites.

Edit: Since there are very few websites I visit that need Javascript, and the ones that absolutely require it go on my do-not-visit list 90% of the time, just blocking it all by default works just fine for me.

this website gives you the information to let you make up your own mind , not necessary to follow their advice but at least be informed about the choices

The voice \ text chat is a loss-leader for discord. They really want you on their platform so they can sell games & compete with steam.

Yep. And of course they want you to sign up for their ‘Nitro’ subscription, so you can use more emoticons.

If you can’t type out a response but just put an emoticon why do you need to respond at all. Emoticons just tell me you cant really be bothered.

I could never use mumble because I do not talk so I like Discord in the fact of the text chat capabilities and being able to do that from my phone really helps me. I have not been on it lately due to real life issues but I really do like Discord and I am glad we have switched to it.

Have you made it to the OTG server specifically? If not, that’s where you want to start. Check out this thread: https://forums.oldtimersguild.com/t/otg-discord-invite-link/220

It also includes a description of what to do/expect when you arrive.

Ok, great! That’s a start. In the first post is a link. That link will take you to the OTG server, specifically. From there you can follow the instructions (that’s the 2nd post). Say hi in the #welcome channel, get processed, and all that fun stuff.

Our server has a habit of disconnecting some people until they have their permissions set up. If you happen to be one of those people, you can hop into one of the voice channels (no worry about speaking or listening, an empty one is fine). That seems to help hold the connection. If not just hop back in every now and then and read the channel history to check your status.
