Discussion on: Real-time chat community vs Forum community

I have opinions on using Slack (most of which is applicable to discord):

I think existing platforms are often a short-cut that can immediately drive some engagement but often be very hard to extricate from..and I don't think real-time serves everyone. That said, I've definitely seen vibrant chat communities so I don't want to denigrate anyone running them; I just think it's a risky choice for a community.
