Chat rooms have traditionally been a place for people to socialize. It sounds like you don't know how chat rooms are used and so you're trying to turn one into a technical support chat for antkeeping, like this is eBay or something.
I was just saying that when I asked a simple question in the chat in the past, I would be ignored. Just because its usually used to socialize doesn't mean you should ignore a new antkeeper asking a simple question.
What the heck. We aren't 24/7 ant support. We come in chat to enjoy ourselves, not answer your questions on command. I need you to pay attention the following key words....
We have a Forum for that friend! You know this thing you just posted in. You can also get your questions answered here! Yeah, you read that right! Just pick the correct subforum and I promise multiple replies within a few hour period.
No one is saying anything bad about discord. But remember if our chat is useless, (which it is) that makes discord too. Chat is for socialization.
You clearly aren't following me. I understand that the forum is better for asking questions because people don't ignore you there. What you don't understand is that my question could have easily been answered with only 5 seconds of typing, but instead it was completely ignored by members of Formiculture that were experienced ant keepers. If you think it is okay to ignore a new ant keeper asking a simple question then fine, but I don't think its okay. It's annoying to be ignored. Also you say that you come to the chat to enjoy yourselves and not answer questions "on command," but it really is not that big of a deal to answer someones question. I wasn't demanding answers, I was seeking help from people I thought could help me. And I was right in thinking they could help me, just wrong in thinking they would. No one even said "Make a post about it" or anything. They just decided not to respond at all. And if every new antkeeper made a new post about every little thing then the forum could easily become flooded with simple and repetitive questions/posts. And I KNOW about the search feature. I've used it but sometimes you can't find what you are looking for because the questions/information has been worded differently in the past.
Another thing I would like to mention is that you seem to like saying "no one is insulting Discord" and then insult it right after. This chat being useless does not make the Discord chat useless for one simple reason. Questions are actually answered in the Discord server.
(also from what i have seen, you like to ignore the arguments used by people against what you say, and then respond with something unrelated to their message/argument. I'm going to ask that you don't do that to me. thanks)
