He's doing all the hard work. I will just follow our esteemed leader down whatever misguided path he takes us. :)

As you know, I LIKE Discord and use it regularly now.

I received strong feedback, however, from a number of players that their preferred method was e-mail.

It was also the only method that got consistent results the last time, though, in fairness, Discord was not then in play...

I was unaware there was a poll on Discord vs. Email vs. Carrier Pigeon. Had I known, I would have strongly pushed for Discord as I think it's a great format for keeping things organized and in a manner that I can more easily contemplate on my phone while eating lunch.

I know folks like it and I'm well used to it.

For a live KS (1824, par example), I'd definitely use it.

Clear preference amongst those who played in the previous for e-mail, though...some wanting nothing to do with Discord...or at least having nothing to do with it at present and not particularly wanting to try.

That's interesting. I find Discord much easier to use for Kriegsspiel than e-mail.

I do both, and I find it horribly unwieldy to extract information from an e-mail quickly and precisely, if it is not superbly layouted, while cross-referencing back and forth with my map or TTS or whatever.

Plus all the options with channel management and teams and roles and whatnot.

Huh, wondering why exactly people find e-mail more convenient.

Probably because it's something hey know... and maybe some of they don't want to learn anything new.

"EMAIL"?!? Why, We had JUST "Air Mail" and "1st Class", or "Magazine Class"-(forgot WHAT they called that), "CandyGrams", "Strip-O-Grams", "PAY to PLAY-by-mail"-('Starweb', etc.), and whatever! "Do Do Do Do Do Do Do!  Playing 'Games' in the U.S.A. Somebody get ME a handful of 'Cheetos'! ...and a 'Cheeseburger'!"
