characterslimits You can make the same argument with any piece of software. Consider iOS vs Android, there are people who believe that Android copied iOS, like you both believing Revolt copied Discord.
Except it’s an exact copy, lmao… they have very similar login forms, the setting menus look nearly identical. I’d be open to competition, just not when Revolt literally is a little brother trying to be like his big brother. Android and iOS are out of the picture and are actually different in their respective ways; I’ve been using both for 12 years.
characterslimits The difference here is that Revolt can be decentralized, unlike Discord, which means you can host the platform where the TOS doesn’t apply. Also, I haven’t seen a software go from open source to closed source.
Yeah, and also risk major security risks and having vulnerabilities in your code open to the entire world. I don’t think a lot of people want to host their own platform either; you need the server hardware to do it and need knowledge on how to host these kinds of things. I’d rather run a TS3 server and a forum together than run a Revolt platform.
characterslimits So, you would rather live in a country where you don’t have rights and hide from the police 24/7 rather than escaping to a country where you do have rights?
Countries with rights still have laws… the United States, the land of the “free”, still has laws you have to follow. If you can’t follow them, then pay the consequences. Your argument is invalid and does not make sense.
Discord isn’t going under any time soon, and it’s only getting bigger and better. If you want to use Revolt, be my guest. I don’t agree with the platform being suitable for TF. Look at what happened with Mumble. Alternative platforms for TF have lead to wasted resources. My objection still stands.
