Or just don't use Discord.

Use discourse instead? It's really the best in my opinion.

Look at what just happened to Yuzu - Years of community just deleted because of a few lawyers.

I haven't read the legal outcome, but wouldn't this have happened anyways if the forums were in other places? The github got removed as well

basic news is: Yuzu and citra agreed to shut down with immediate effect incl. discords.

At least with an open platform youd have a chance to backup discussions or rehost. You'd probably still be dead in the water but it would beat the info being wiped.

I created a discord server for an open source project of mine, but grew to dislike it. It got spammed multiple times, people are off topic and talking about their lives in channels that aren't for that, and so I started pushing the community toward GitHub discussions.

Discord isn't searchable, nor archivable, nor public, but GitHub is (I'm aware of another conflict with Microsoft for some people, but to me this is the easiest solution to get contributors and have an easy CI setup).

I haven't had much success yet, but I'm slowly shutting down all links to the discord and will let it die (for outside contributors at least). I might keep it to stay in touch with a few developers, to refine issues and prepare migrations that aren't ready to be turned into public discussions/ issues / pull requests.
