I am curious about you guys' opinions on real-time chat communities like discord/slack vs forum-based (best answer) type communities like Reddit/discourse/quora/StackOverflow.
Been seeing the trend of users starting a discord channel for their subreddit, are they uprooting and shifting their communities to discord? or are they just finding an alternate communication method for real-time chatting?
Which is better for building a community ground up?
If I am running both which should I focus my attention and spend more resources on?
Having my community on these 2 platforms seems to be spreading the content my users are generating resulting in not being able to find a "best answer" in one place and discussions are scattered and repeated on various platforms. Wouldn't that be much more difficult to maintain the community?
