Old school posting will be available on Discord ...

According to a post on Discords' official blog on Wednesday, Discord has grown to become a primary internet community for user-made channels covering everything from video game lore to Dungeons & Dragons campaigns.

There are still forums everywhere on the internet, hosted on platforms like Vanilla or vBulletin, but they have declined in popularity over the years. Discords' take on forums is interesting; it allows users to create individual, distinct topics that remain visible to the general public. It's a significant enhancement to Discords' existing threads feature, which allows for specific topics.

Communities can quickly become overwhelmed by a flood of small messages, although these tools do not alter the nature of Discord.

Forums used to be a much more popular online discussion format that was discarded in time in favor of faster and more robust solutions. However, they still have a valuable niche in terms of long-term discussions, long and thoughtful debates, and archiving information; for instance, an official game Discord might have FAQs and guides under one forum, while walkthroughs and guides might go under another.

The feature is available today, and it's being implemented on Discord servers that have the Community flag enabled under server settings.
