Reopening the Safex Discord

Does anyone know when (if) the Safex Discord will reopen?

With the imminent launch of the marketplace, it might be a good idea to consider this now.

Discord has been open for many months, up until very recently, with a link on the Safex.io website that was only removed earlier today.

But, it seems the vast majority of new arrivals in recent months were scammers, trolls, fudders… either from other projects looking to cause trouble, or previously banned members coming back in under a different username with the intentIon of continuing their previous behaviour.

It is impossible to adequately police such antics.

And as Dan tweeted earlier…


Discord isn’t essential.

Found the reopening ANN… a year ago…

OK, that is unfortunate. I hope you will reconsider some day. Thank you for your time.

over the years in the crypto industry, the open chat rooms hosted by the development team etc, turned into more of a liability.

So much attention was on trying to manage expectations, mostly poaching, intense useless FUD rather than constructive contributions to the project.

After analyzing the environment the more successful projects out there did not operate a chat room, and only offshoots of marketing teams that supported the project from a different angle, and not one at attacking individuals.

And it is incessant, and it is annoying to deal with, even counter productive.

If someone wants to operate the community discord, that is up to them. But, as a core community we must focus on real strategies for PR and marketing, and not be forced into managing and being at the center of managing a chat room that literally any anonymous squirrel will join, we do not gain any content productivity and loads of FUD.

It has disheartened many people over the years, and it has also made our efforts to go directly to dealing with incessant trolling.

We have this discussion forum, and as I said. If you feel that you need a chatroom to talk in, and have something beneficial you can add the community in that way.

It is a shame that we did not utilize this forum enough over the years and focused on the chatroom.

Our project liquidity wise is literally on rock bottom (referring to exchange trading, and pricing)

I don’t see any analysis or precedent that anything will change because we keep a discord chat room open: re: other successful projects are not focused on this chatroom strategy at all, why should we be?

Keep in mind, this is not “closing the discord” if you’re already in there, you can continue to use the platform

Well said, the discord majorly bummed me out after a while. There are good people in there though

Agreed watching good people go really sucked, having the Discord was nice as other project didn’t, however with the mix of people and expectations thinking they are owed something instead of being happy supporting an idea and someone’s vision and goals believing and knowing they can do it and us as supporters saying yes you can. Then here comes the Clown needing to shoot it down because his old Lady is kickin it with the big SAFEX bag holder down the street after he sold his HaHaHa

Being a regular on both the forum and discord, I have to say I agree with this statement. Discord team/ moderators have been very helpful to so many. Early days we had great input from community members, and I would give hours reading through the comments with great interest. Lately I hardly read back on anything because it all seems like not constructive and no consistence on any topic. However, I would like to keep in touch with the community there.

The forum has always being my favorite place to talk about safex, we even get more rewards for promoting topics which leads to promoting safex, whether its TWM, mining, Sft, Sfx etc…

Hears to a new ere for the forum
