    It has been suggested on multiple occasions that the UFP switches from TeamSpeak to Discord. This is not going to happen, there are a number of reasons for this, of which shall be explained. However, you should also be aware that the UFP does have a Discord as well, for those who want to use it, you can get it here: https://discordapp.com/invite/UVFaZx2

    TeamSpeak offers a number of securities that Discord does not offer. As we host it on our servers, no information gets passed to a third party, there is no middle man. You enter a handshake between the server and your client. As Discord stores data on their servers, we have no control over what you share with them and what they collect.

    Unless there comes such a time that Discord allows for self-hosted opinions, in the way TeamSpeak offers, there will be no switch over for the UFP. This decision is primarily based on the grounds of security to the data of our members.

    Note from Lazereth

    Whilst Discord has a number of appealing features, such as inline image rendering, browser compatibility, and fantastic bot support; it simply does not meet the level of privacy that we as a community are willing to accept. The Discord application, as a company hosted service, retains all of your chat, contact, and networking information, which is not only accessible by Discord themselves, but also shared to third party advertisers (with no assurance that aggregated data is anonymous). This is outlined clearly in their privacy policy: https://discordapp.com/privacy.

    Should your Discord account be compromised, your entire chat history would be as well, which would be a disturbing notion for most individuals. TeamSpeak’s developers have had a strong focus on user privacy, with private chat communication being encrypted, impossible to store server side, and only stored locally on the recipient’s computer if explicitly enabled. In addition, channel communication is only accessible to the TeamSpeak identities in the channel at the time, the server, nor a client can access a log or history of the chats unless they were there themselves. Finally, TeamSpeak does have a basic telemetry system, however, this can be opted out of through the client, is anonymous, and can be deleted anytime via user request; as outlined through the privacy policy: https://www.teamspeak.com/en/policies. Other than that, and an occasional connection for licensing, no other network traffic is passed to TeamSpeak’s owners.

    Until Discord can be locally hosted, matches the extremely granular permissions system, and has a less concerning privacy policy, I simply cannot recommend Discord as the main VOIP communications client for UFPlanets. Should a veteran Discord manager have a solution to these issues, then please post it here in detail, as I would be very willing to hear it. Failing that, TeamSpeak most likely will not be going anywhere for a long time.

    Just as an addendum, please remember that you should all be hyper-aware of what information you are giving to third parties at all times (even to UFPlanets.com!). It is imperative that you understand your rights under data protection laws, and I urge you to actually read the privacy policies of services that you use. They are typically less dense than the terms and conditions pages we are all so used to blindly accepting, and let's you know exactly what your data can be used for.

    The UFP's privacy policy can be found here: https://ufplanets.com/cms.php?22-Legal

    If you have any questions regarding protecting your privacy, how the UFP handles data, or just want clarification on something; please feel free to PM me anytime.

    One of the higher ups can help you restore your permissions, but it might be worth it to create a TeamSpeak account, as it can save all your channel information to your account which will prevent this in the future.
