I want to invite you all to our new Ukulele Underground Discord server.

This forum is now 13 years old, and though she has served the ukulele community well, she is tired and needs a break.

Discord is a realtime chat platform that is free to use. There are apps for it for every device and you'll be able to talk and post pictures and even voice. chat with your fellow UU members in real time.

All you need is to click this link and create a discord profile.

The forum will stay up, but honestly, discord is a much better place to hang out in this day of smart phones and tablets. The mods and I will get it set up just like the forum so you won't miss much from here. I hope to see you all in there.

Not sure how Discord server is an improvement. All the topics funnelled into one thread? No thanks

Discord s great if you sit and enjoy tweeting all day but I like to search through old threads. there's all kinds of great info. Yeah this site can sometimes get repetitive but discord's nothing but one big pile of noob questions (at least from the sites I've been on that have switched. people answer things quickly on this site anyway.

That thread should be deleted permanently, especially with the UU forum now being done with XenForo, a very efficient forum service.

Oh, I'm so glad we'll stay here! I really don't care for Discord. Cat'r says it's like a slow chatlines. :p Which is good in some circumstances, but not for threads and archives and what we have here.

The new forum service is great. I think the way it awards points is a bit juvenile and quaint, but in every other respect it seems to function very well indeed. (y)

Feel like such a boomer for being so bumbly at using Discord. Then again I’m not a gamer, the users that favor it?

I'd like to be able to "tip" UU once in a while. I was doing VIP for a while, but I'd love another way to contribute without the auto-billing.

I am not a boomer but I don’t like discord.. Google cannot search it and unless you plan to live chat it is horrible

Funny, back around 2000, I got into NAXOS audiobooks on CDs. Not popular at all at the time. I could convert them to mp3s. Now, audiobooks are very popular like podcasts. Discord is ok but there is still a need for a forum like this. Keep it going!
