Most public forums are now connected to discord via webhooks to help draw more attention to the forums. All private / IRL forums will not. Just wanted to let you all know.

"All private / IRL forums will not".  Glad to hear that, because I wasn't sure about all private posts.  I saw in Discord, earlier, that you'd said "most" private and IRL posts.

It might drive a little bit of traffic back to forums.  I'd be curious to know if the Event Claim reminders increased claiming, or not (I know you track site metrics).

I think that Discord removed a lot of the need to post to a website forum.  It's much easier to access, as well as being easier to post quickly to, from a wide-variety of sources.  A lot of games are switching to a Discord channel.  They're not giving up on their forums, but they are promoting their Discord channel as the desired source of community communication.

Forums are a long term discussion source and a place to capture history. Discord conversations are easy to miss. Those announcements only have a shelf life of a few minutes while their in focus. It's rare theres any activity on them after they've passed the focus of the conversations. Think of Discord like a chat application. Where Forums are like a Bulletin Board or Knowledge Repository.
