I did hope it would hook a few of them in when I linked it tbh. There's definitely some overlap between the stuff discussed in the Discord server and on here.

As an American I imagine everyone speaking English online is American and I cant fathom any forum not being overrun by other Americans. How did the homogeneity happen here?
