Thoughts on Discord alternatives?

Guilded is owned by Roblox... so I'd stay far form that. maybe try out Jami. The real trouble is convincing people to use a new platform.
Options for a neighborhood group for occasional communication?
1 project | reddit.com/r/portangeles | 4 Nov 2021
I think the best messaging app is Jami, you dont need to provide any data to use it, you can just use it and it generates an ID for you (no email, number for an account, but tied to the device instance), but again it needs an app. It is completely anonymous, open source and has end to end encryption by default. Also its peer-to-peer so no server is holding your messaging data

Although: an app like Jami is good if you don't need group messaging.

I think https://jami.net/ is a better solution and has a working mobile client.
Seems dead to me.

Idea for Tox group chats and viewing message history when offline
1 project | reddit.com/r/projecttox | 23 Sep 2021
Jami works in a P2P manner, and is able to send/forward messages and history between users, online and offline. It uses swarms, though, and has some sort of server component (not sure how much work this does). Swarms probably work something like torrenting, with Alice and Bob's encrypted conversation, or even Bob's DMs to Emma, being held by nearby IPs (i.e. Nicole, and a bunch of randos), and forwarded to Emma when she reconnects.
