This channel is for discussing possible platforms for TEPBC. MOCpages may not be the best option for this year, as it continues to have connection issues and seems to shut down constantly. Flickr could be another option, but it does not have the best group support.

The final option is Discord, and this is the one that Democritus and I feel is the best platform. We can have separate roles and permissions for everyone, more support, more flexibility, and ease of access. I already have an official TEPBC server, but for this year Democritus and I would probably start from scratch with a whole new server.

Post your ideas or thoughts here.

I have no Discord and don't feel very comfortable with setting up another account I need to maintain.

I can understand that.
But with the way MOCPages is going, how do we have confirmation that the site won't randomly go down for weeks at a time again?

Yeah, we don't have any confirmation and never will have one in the future. I think that's fact.
Lemme think about. Actually it seems to be a app where I just need access to without the need for much maintenance.

I suggest that we use M-P as much as we can, and use Discord as a temporary backup for whenever M-P fails.

In other words, post your mocs here as much as possible, if the deadline is near and you haven't uploaded your MOC yet, post it on discord first, and whenever M-P's back online, post it here for comments/likes etc.
Finding a MOC back from 3 years ago on a flooded discord server is a pain.

This way, the jury would have access to all the MOC's, we'd have the functions of M-P.

I'd never heard of Discord before, but after minimal research it seems like a good option as a backup. As it's invite only, it doesn't offer the possibility of random users spotting the contest and joıning in that MP does. On the other hand it would definitely offer a better group experience than e.g. Flickr.

Right.
The main reasons I chose Discord was because of the privacy and cleanliness that it provides.

I got Discord not that long ago, so I'm fine if you want to use it.

Mocpages can be considered to be dead. Whenever I checked this site, it feels more like a zombie than an active website.

Imo I would prefer Flickr.

Why not just accept MOCs submitted through all three, and use Discord to have the judge discussion?

What about Facebook? Everyone is on FB so nobody will be forced to create new acount. Personally I donīt want to create new acount on page that I will use only for this contest.

Ouch for Facebook. I will use my Discord if necessary but would prefer the MP option for creation posting.

Ok, so far the suggestions are:
- mocpages
- discord
- flickr
- facebook
Are there any other mentionable platforms? If not, I suggest a poll between the contenders (let's allow selecting more than one option) and get this going

Hi Lo, hi Sven, hi everybody else here! See my comment in "main conversation"... ;) I prefer MP because I like to maintain this cemetary! :) Cemetaries are not boring and sad until our world would be a big one... So GO!
