    It would be neat if Nofap hosted a talking session. Everyone could talk about there current struggles etc. I know therapy exists, but this community knows porn addiction best!

    i think this is a great idea and way overdue
    something like an AA meeting but for porn addicts, or at least a channel we could talk through
    porn addicts anonymous

    That cost money that is not in the budget at this time would be my opinion.

    Discord is actually completely free. Setting it up, managing it and even scaling a community. At the most, the NoFap team may spend some money on some premium Discord bots or even a bot developed specifically for the server.

    The biggest issue is moderation. 24/7 live chat would need moderator oversight & the volunteers here are already giving more than can be expected of them for just the forum.

    NoFap is a big target. Articles come out that try to devalue this site because of the misbehaviour of a few. 24/7 live chat in Discord will be harder to moderate, especially with the limited human resources it has, which could just end up hindering its larger mission.

    I personally think it would be awesome, but I also put my money where my mouth is. If this is something people really want, they have to be prepared to help NoFap make such a thing feasible. If they can't give their time to help as a moderator, then they should be prepared to help pay for professional moderation. I don't think people really understand how much effort it takes to keep this site as free from toxicity as it currently is.

    Setting up a Discord chat is just adding a whole other pile of easily combustible material to a volatile target. It would need to have proper oversight. Address that issue and you have my support, until then, I'll just be happy that my little contribution of money goes towards server costs.

    I've set up and manager Discord for years now. I can say with confidence that a Discord server can have as much oversight as the NoFap forums. I've been an administrator on many forums and Discord. My experience backs my confidence.

    Discord is very convenient when it comes to live chats and hosting those types of events mentioned by the OP. Some of the top sub-Reddits have Discord servers (some even partnered).

    Now of course I'm going to say yes to creating a Discord. I'm a huge fan of the platform. I've benefited from it along with my own contributions. But it's up to the NoFap Team to decide what's best here, so I'm not going to be too biased. But maybe give it some thought and do a bit of research on it.

    I'll try this another way. Look at the context here. It's been 2 weeks and no staff has answered this. That's the point, a discord server will have just as much oversight as the forums. Your own point doesn't make sense in the context here & is actually working against your case for discord.

    I'll try this again. The main issue I see in a lot of online communities that discuss Discord as another option talks about oversight and moderation being an issue. My point is don't let your lack of knowledge in Discord or bad experiences let you stop you from properly considering it as an option. Just hear me out.

    Staff members, please correct if this sounds wrong. But if your main concern is oversight and moderation, then why not invest in the resources different Discord bots and even your own staff team to effectively look over a Discord server? I know from experience that a Discord server will enhance a community and bring people closer. The possibilities are endless.

    But if this isn't worth the time for the staff team, at least leave a response. I'm just speaking my two cents with my experience. From a member of this community to its staff team.

    Edit: I'd be more than happy to volunteer as a Moderator within a Discord server based on this forum.

    Discord server would be great. It will be messy but that's life.
