    • We have a discord server that we've recently started back up.  You can see the join link in the topic of our IRC channel or you can plug in http://url.bcts.info/discord into your browser and you can join the converstation there.  We have also setup a linking bot to bridge the discord and irc channels so you can see chat from both networks from either plance.  We hope this will open up the audience a bit more in the chat that don't have IRC or don't want to do IRC.
