I do not enjoy chatting during the game. As I am on the otherside of the pond and the Janet Jackson mandatory 3-5 minute delay, stateside Bearsfans tend to celebrate before we see it. Or scream in agony as it often was with Nagy. Nothing worse then watching a solid drive and then someone posts "Oh know another interception!" Wish it were otherwise. Maybe us non continentals should make our own Discord, so no spoilers.
A new Era begins in the NFC North!

Sadly, it does not involve the Bears.... :frustrated:

It's the same way when those who are watching illegal streams deal with the 2-5 minute delays. I'm not sure what else to do besides create a separate room? We can experiment.

UPDATE: I've added a "no-spoilers-chat" room.

Discord is always open, but it should be lively with representation on draft days, yep.

That could be pretty fun. There will probably be a mix of people losing their shit and people being giddy. It would be nice if the first pick got us all pumped. But, then again, there seems to never be a consensus. At least the Cubs play an afternoon game that day so won't have to have that game on for my father in law.

The Discord is an absolute blast, especially when @Stay_Cool and I are tying one on and playing Fuck-Marry-Kill :lol:

Just got an email from "DISCORD" to change my user name by March 4th or it will create a unique one for me. Was this sent by the admins on this board or a scam?

I think it might be legit. 6 days ago, Discord updated their username requirements. See this: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/ar ... 20identity

Just to be safe, logging into the app or website (instead of clicking the links in the email) should show you the same message. I would also look at the domain in the from email (the part after the @ symbol). If it's not @discord.com, I would be wary.
