Discord is shit Anonymous 10/22/2018 (Mon) 02:28:19 [Preview] No. 12909
Is there a Libre version of Discord that isn't so shit? It needs stuff like this:
>voice chat
>text chat
>Youtube and image embeds in text chat
>Free Software (Libre)
>you can host it on your own server
>you can make bots for it
>uses actual good encryption
>has a web interface and mobile app
>you don't have to have a mobile phone to register an account

matrix: https://matrix.org/blog/home/
Voice chat: yup
text chat: yup
youtube and image embeds: image embeds and and youtube previews.
free software: yup
own server: yup
permissions: Like some people are mods of rooms? If so, yes.
bots: yup. https://matrix.org/docs/projects/try-matrix-now.html
good encryption: there are E2E encrypted chats, and the protocol has been audited. Not sure how well it's implemented though.
web interface and mobile app: yup
no phone: yup

You could also use IRC or XMPP, but matrix is the most similar to discord.

I had a look and it looks great, but the voice chat is a problem.
I'm trying to get some people to migrate from Discord so I don't have to buy a prepaid sim card to create an account and give them all of my conversation data.
In other words, it can't compete with Discord voice chat rooms.
I don't think they have the attention span to use both this and Teamspeak; plus, Teamspeak is proprietary.

Try out telegram, it's pretty decent tbh. Not sure how much botnet it is...

use Tox for P2P
for server-client use IRC or XMPP with people you trust and configure it to be as secure or feature-ful as you'd like
internet chat is like desktop publishing, it has been solved for 30+ years
if you want bells and whistles you are part of the problem
if you want security and anonimity that has been hacked on to it

Just to clarify, is your problem with matrix the lack of conference calls/ multi-way voip?
Matrix currently doesn't have it, but there is an experimental feature for it if you use riot as a client. There are also plans to support it officially in the future, but I haven't been able to find a date.
If you want conference calls, I've heard that jitsi might work. If you want to bother configuring everything, then XMPP can probably do everything you listed. The only problem is that it'll be difficult for less technically inclined people to use.
It can definitely satisfies 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10. It probably satisfies 6 and 7. Not sure about 3. The problem is that some clients and servers don't support every feature you've listed.

Yes, Rocket.chat
Discord is forked from that. Discord is a perfect argument for those shilling against MIT license.

Not botnet but a honeypot from Russia.

There is Wire, but they use Amazon technology on their servers and keep a huge chunk of user data. The data is encrypted and all tools are open source through.

Another one which has been recomended by Snowden is Signal. Also open source and encrypted, but they record only a few details of users.

I think Assange is working for Russia or some other big actor too.
I mean, who the fuck even hosts wikileaks? If it was a one man's mission they'd just upload shit to freenet or something.

Right, and WikiLeaks has thousands of documents regarding Israel which they still haven't released, so they're very picky in what they release into the public, which was apparent with the 2016 U.S. elections.

I just want to mention there's Mastodon. If society can't break free of social media then we can at least make it better, and Mastodon promises to be a decentralized Twitter.

Mastodon is run by SJWs and they refuse to federate with any server that triggers them.

The closest thing to an acceptable Discord replacement is Riot.im, but that's still effectively centralized. Tox would be the best but nobody's willing to clean up toxcore.

True, but there are tons of instances that don't ban everyone. Ironically the biggest instances pawoo.net is on their blocklist.
Hope you are fine with japanese people and lolicons, though considering you're here you probably are.
Also, isn't that somewhat the point of federation when it comes to social networking? Being able to block instances without needing to censor people from the whole network?

Riot uses matrix. It's still beta, but it's the future and the rooms are very active. Lots of Discord users already migrated over.

Signal uses lots of google services. The development team, using the pseudonym "Moxie Marlinspike", is openly hostile to anyone wanting to separate from google dependencies, and has long flame wars on Github about it. Wire is the best centralized communication app, but it costs $5/month to use, so it is limited in reach. It does allow you to add someone for free to your chat that has not paid, but they get booted in 24 hours. Unlike Signal, Wire is very transparent and welcoming to the FOSS community. They do have proprietary dependencies, but so does every app with a feature set approaching Wire.

I don't know about this particular case, but Wikileaks usually announces big procurements of documents, and then give timetables on releases based on the speed of curation. They go through every document to make sure nothing harmful gets out. So the basically have an internal "classified" system like what the FBI uses. I haven't seen Wikileaks blackout text like the FBI does, but they do openly truncate pages from leaks. For example, they do not release most NSA malware code they receive because it is too dangerous, by their reasoning. The bits of code they have released have created lots of havoc already, as you might already know. Remember WannaCry?

Don't trust wikileaks but my personal feel has always been they were under the influence of a mid level player who maybe backing them over a high level one. They've pissed off to many people on all sides doesn't mean (((globalist))) wouldn't have there hands somewhere in it though they struggle to exist too much and I wouldn't think Russia or the Israelis have as much of the public spurgouts.

Three groups of dissident right shitposters sitting under one Sedevacantist's server, yeah, that's real stupid. Why would anyone with two braincells admit to shilling one specific server under a Catholic priest with his own agendas on a non political board? Fuck off.

why would anyone with two braincells listen to a kike like you?

the owner is not a catholic priest, his agenda is to safely house the right-wing and disillusioned, and he's a solid, albeit quirky, guy.

don't like it? run your own homeserver, nigger. make sure you put aside about $40/month or more for a decent VPS in somewhere that won't fuck you over, be ready to pay for it all on your own since your fellow NEETs won't help, and I wish you all the luck in working with the rest of the matrix community, which hates *you* by default.

why would anyone with two braincells shill for one server without context and not provide alternative servers besides the Ordo Evangelistarum server yet be a part of at least one of the three NEET dissident groups and had publicly associated them with that one server?

You clearly have an agenda and it took me this long for you to admit that you're not practicing proper OPSEC by responding to me when you could of had continued on spamming that one link. This is your final warning, any more shilling of this specific matrix server is automatic deletion. No one with one braincell will shill specifically for one matrix server publicly instead of literally anything else out there both proprietary and open source. Never put all your eggs in one basket. The Feds now know, fucko.

They're Sedevacantist LARP(s) at the very least.

P.S., use IRC, fuck talking.
