Slack or Discord - Which do you prefer using and why?

Just wanted to ask quick question. In VA’s etc or in large groups with a high amount of pilots which communication platform do you guys prefer using?

I prefer discord due to it being free, and truly free (no Ads) and it having much more customization.

Note: personal preference.

I think discord is better because it’s more user friendly and has voice comms. The bots you can get are also way better than on Slack.

Slack, easier and I have to exit ik nfjnite flight and leave it in the background to talk in a chat so slack is quicker acess.

Personally, I prefer Slack. Discord is too “all over the place” for me. All of the VAs/VOs I’m in use Slack, and I believe most do. Slack is more organized and cleaner than Discord.

Slack is much more easy to use, discord is all over the place like @MrMrMan said. However, don’t get me wrong Discord is cool.

Discord ends up being funnier, and more customisable, as well as having more bots to add (if I’m not mistaken). Discord used to be more messy, but now is way better, we can create categories for a server to become more organized (more even than slack).
However, this is just my opinion. Discord for life!

Discord, IAV and many other VA’s use it as it is flexible, easy to use, has the ability to have roles and restrict areas and is fully free. No messages dissapearing after 10,000

I like slack better mostly due to the simplicity and convenience
Discord is a little too much all around the map and It’s not as easy to use imo, the two pretty much have the same features.(although discord got a few unique cool features that slack doesn’t)

Okay, many people have points as to why Slack is better… But does Slack have a Casino Bot? I didn’t think so.

Slack actually does have bots, but they have very limited functionality.

The debate around Slack and discord for VA’s is a long one.
Slack is much cleaner and safer and has more security safeguards. However, discord, as said above, is much more customizable, it has more channels, more perms, and my personal favorite, more than 1 read-only channels. And as Callum said above, there is a paid plan which makes slack nicer. While on the free plan, Slack is ok, it doesn’t have roles and such that makes discord the way it is.

Its based on personal preference, a poll on the IFC won’t settle the debate.

Also you dont need to be sent an email to join.

My main gripe is that you can’t make a channel read only in Slack with the free plan.
