    I'm not sure how active it will be, judging from the activity of this forum. Another concern is that these servers can easily get messed up if they aren't set up properly. But apart from those issues, it sounds ok.

    So if players elect not to join the Discord server will they still be able to play the game, trying to get as much info as possible for our co-op

    So is the whole game on the Discord server? Or is it just the availability of other perks?

    The game does not change at all.

    You don't NEED to join the Discord server to play  Big Farm

    it is for communicating with other Big Farmers from around the globe

    Players on ALL servers will be able chat with each other.

    I posted some time ago about this idea. Although I only managed to get a very small number of my coop involved, I could see the potential. Chatting directly to players and asking them to sparkle your farm and you theirs and so on; I could see if this is taken up en mass, it could revolutionise game play. However, I mainly got negative feedback on the forum when I posted this idea. Basically, there was too much concern about bad language and general abuse. I think this is a minor issue but the negative side of things tends to be exaggerated by naysayers. This is true of a lot of suggestions on this forum BTW.

    Discord is another way to communicate and interact with other players. We are planning lots of good and fun things for players to do. :)

    I understand the basic idea, just not the how it will work. Is it like 1 of those old IM services or a separate window type thing?? A screen shot of it will help with understanding

    A Search for Discord images brings up many screenshots to see how other games use it

    Would the tutorial help? Click HERE

    THANK YOU!! I've been working overtime, which means 11 hr days and found this when I got home. Too tired to understand when I didn't have the time to investigate. Plus I think I'm at that age where I just don't want change anymore lol

    Just thinking out loud;
    On 1 hand, I agree, it'll be nice for those who can't get on forum to go to discord.
    On another hand, 1 more account, 1 more login on yet another type of social media is not appealing to me.
    But if we don't join discord, there's a chance to miss out on a lot of good info that we get here in forum. Many might post there instead of here?
    I admit I don't know much about discord, does it just work like a big chat room or is there places to save/post info?
    The game keeps using more & more computer thought process; it's about to where I can't have the game open with anything else at the same time, even just something to read. It got worse again after adding the Easter egg hunt.
    Going back to my 1st thought listed; is this their work-around for the players that can't access forum?  I mean, that's been an issue for a long time. Are they promoting this because they're not going to or be able to fix the forum login issues so many players have?
    No verdict yet, will have to think about this one. But I won't be jumping in and joining discord soon.
    Discord is an addition. The events channels are the same as you might have noticed.
    Discord is just more "live discussion", more interaction than a forum where replies may take hours or days.

    To add up with what Chickadee said, most of the games these days has their own discord server, from my personal point of view it would really help increase the interaction between players in an international level, and also between the moderators and the players  o:)

    And regarding the forum issue,  please stay tuned for some good news shortly ^^

    Looking forward to it - Thank you Bugs Bunny !!!

    edit:
    @BugsBunny I just found your post on modnews from January 20th that there was to be a fix 'soon' for the login issue. more than 2 months later the status is still soon?  I don't think they have the same definition of soon that I use. Have they offered anything more concrete about this fix?

    I am surprised that there is no audio chat at this stage. I thought that was the main point of Discord.
