Matchday Chat has been an awesome OA feature for several years now, but we’ve found noticed it’s been rather inactive for a while now. One of the reasons causing the inactivity is the software being quite crappy, especially on mobile devices. We don’t like having to log in seperately to use a chat function, either.
Discourse is awesome on mobile, and posting is done with such little effort, that we’ve decided it may be good to leave MDC and use Match Day Threads more actively, during games. Last night was a good example of how interactive the threads can be. Added the fact that it’s awesome reading back the emotional reactions in the heat of the moment, good or bad.
We feel using Matchday Threads and leaving MDC would be a step in the right direction. But before we make the decision we thought it’s good to ask the community :).
Matchday Threads or MDC?
- Matchday Threads
- Not too bothered, whatever you guys decide is best for OA
