Title: Financial Independence Chat Room?
Post by: outsyncof on June 19, 2017, 06:53:30 PM
Would any of you ladies and gentlemen be interested in joining a Financial Independence themed chat room?  I personally would love to talk about FI related topics in real time.  Please join me if this at all sounds like your cup of tea!

We have one, thanks. It's called the Mr, Money Mustache forum.
But, sure, why not? I'll click on an obvious spam/virus link. What's the worse that could happen?

Discord is a well known chat platform, it's definitely not a virus.  Although I do agree that my post does come across as spammy :)

I guess chat rooms are not as popular in 2017 as they were in 97'

Worth a shot, I guess!

Make it an IRC chatroom and I'll join

There are some chat rooms for subreddits. For example, /r/investing has a discord server (https://discord.gg/0Th8ZTRxPUqeAq71) and /r/personalfinance has an IRC channel (https://www.reddit.com/r/personalfinance/wiki/snoonet). It doesn't look like /r/financialindependence has a chat room, though.

There is a irc chat in the sidebar of https://www.reddit.com/r/EuropeFIRE/
https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.snoonet.org/fire
I believe people from outside europe are welcome there also, though.

Unfortunately the discord link is expired. Does the discord server still exist?

fwiw, if you want people to take this seriously and join, the current name is 0/10.


I actually was going to join until I saw the name.

Fair critique. It's meant to be a funny pun taken from a Wu Tang song. "CREAM" stands for Cash Rules Everything Around Me. "DREAM" was created to stand for Debt Rules Everything Around Me. Since Debt and Cash are crucial to financial independence, the name was born - it sounds similar to Dream Team :).

I don't have any intention of being a famous chat room mogul, just wanted to make a fun group for like minded people. I don't intend to change the name, but I'm open to suggestions if you are serious about joining the community.

So, I'm on discord. And real time there is the same as real time here - you have to be online, paying attention to it. The only real difference is you get harassed with notifications. If you're looking to clutter your phone up with more notifications I think you probably need to do a technology detox.

I'm going to assume that @i_have_so_much_to_learn didn't know that "Dream Cream" is a fairly common name for skincare products. But hey, like @ender said, you do you.

Have fun on Discord, though!

I mute discord and check it whenever I want to - it's not so bad.

Me too. But the notifications are pretty much the only reason to move to discord.
