I have a odd problem with Discord. While all other programs like Mumble, Skype and Ventrilo all work when I plug my headset in the front sockets on my computer Discord does not and I have to plug the headset in around the back of my PC for it to work.

After thinking Ventrilo had been abandoned, I see that 4.0 has been released and includes new 64 bit clients for Mac and PC.

Unfortunately, it requires updating servers to 4.0 and Typefrag is only showing version 3 clients. They are apparently working on providing 4.0 support but have no ETA, but will let me know when available.

Something to think about going forward.

Well let me know if folks decide to swap to Discord both so I can visit and so I remember I have that typefrag subscription :D

oh HALLO.

I've found myself using Discord rather a lot lately so I went ahead and created a Deadly Cupcakes server and added many of the voice channels you know and possibly love. I'm strongly leaning towards finally letting the vent subscription go but I'm not in a rush about it and I'd feel better if everyone sort of drifted over and gave things a try and we saw if it was great for the group or caused unforeseen issues.

Here's the link: https://discord.gg/Bg4XXSv

Can confirm that link works, and there's a very friendly person on the other end named Kallan. Or possibly Wren. Its all very confusing.

I found a work around to my problem
It seems my computer running windows 7 like to adjust the volume of Discord to 0. If I right click the Speaker icon on the taskbar and pick "Open Volume Mixer" I can up the volume and the problem goes away until next time I launch it. No idea why it keeps turning the volume down.

I did a first pass at setting things up.

Marco is currently setup as Cupcake Assassin with admin rights so you don't have to depend on me to make server tweaks.

There is also a Guest Pastry role that allows someone to join chat and voice channels but turns off all the things that would let someone spam things or otherwise be obnoxious.

Default user settings are fairly relaxed. If you're idle for 15min you'll automatically move to The Fluffy Cloud Level as AFK

I even made you an updated icon so you look official:
