Now that Discord is locking thousands of accounts everyday and forcing users to unlock their accounts with phone numbers, what is a better alternative?

Discord has always been shit, IRC has still been working this whole time. It watched the Berlin Wall fall. IRC is still perfect for text based chat, you can share images by linking them you cretin, I know this doesn't appeal to zoomers because they can't easily share their memes with drag and drop

Oh, that's surprising, I wouldn't expect a massively advertised "free" SaaS to do this!

Just don't use these things in the first place.
You were warned, you didn't listen.
But consider this a chance to stop it.

You can still be saved, use mumble and xmpp/irc and take back control.

If you're on matrix.org, it's generally bogged down by the amount of volume that comes in, to the point where they no longer federate presence updates. Consider using a different homeserver, such as halogen.city or matrix.kiwifarms.net

Riot is a Javascript webclient that can be used alongside Matrix, and that client's load time shouldn't be considered indicative of how the homeserver itself performs, as these are separate components. Register for a homeserver through either of the portals linked, then log in from a client of your choice. Any standalone client should load much quicker.

Their E2E is a total pain in the ass.
you joined a chat? Good job! Now you have to enable E2E on every single of the 1000+ users in the chat room and wait for them to acknowledge your key to be able to read the chat!
what's that? You just updated our shitty software? Tuff luck, you have to reauthorize the 1000+ users.
random bug? Go back clicking those users one by one goy to authorize them again!
Garbage.

Brayden Miller

If you don't care about verifying their keys and are willing to blindly trust them, just click the "ignore" button. Chat will be marked as untrusted, but you'll be able to send messages to all members.

Christopher Richardson

Even if you want to ignore the E2E, which imo defeat the whole purpose of this shit software, you have to ignore the E2E per user one by one, it's totally retarded.

Wyatt Miller

No, you can just click "send anyway" when you try to send a message. It will ignore all of them.
Also, if you want to verify, then by all means, do so and don't complain that you have to do what you wanted to! As for the client forgetting verifications: I haven't had that happen on client upgrade (don't clear your local storage!) and the UISI on federation failure bug was fixed a few weeks ago.

Companies always were aware of the fact that kids (schools) are the main money spenders in every family, so guess what? They're adjusting themselves to use what the kids use - discord. Even if it's like 3 years after the release.

Rocket.chat is a self-hosted alternative to Slack and Discord minus voice chat, unfortunately it's Node/Mongo based webshit that just doesn't scale on the server side if you want to keep non-trivial amounts of chat backlog.

account gets locked like an hour later saying I need to put in a phone number to unlock it
has a 'contact help/leave a message' link somewhere nearby
call them out on their bullshit about needing a phone number when it had to be verified by email not even an hour prior, and that phone number wasn't mandatory even in their own signup bs
gets unlocked the next day
I dont even use it but the fact things went a full 180 from how it used to be (the good old 'dont give personal information out to damn near anybody online) is something that just disgusts me.

IRC is perfectly fine. If you want special features like embeddings and emoji just use a client that supports that. And if it doesn't exist just implement it on your own. It shouldn't be too hard to parse links from a message and display them in a fancy box.
Just look at Twitch chat, last I remember they use IRC.

Discord is more smooth

has tons of features
because a chatting program neds more than text and voip...
people get into it easily
irc was used by gamers in the late 90 early 00, we had no problems organizing raids on everquest or pracs for cs 1.6.
Modern gamers are just spoonfed retards, they can't handle criticism and not having everything lvl1. Take a look at the shitheads that have mental breakdowns playing souls/sekiro because it's too hard.
tons of communities without the interface/functional autism
connected servers on the left
users on the right
chat in the middle
chat box at the bottom
typical irc client...
I can't take anyone seriously who still uses IRC
Developers around the world use irc because they don't want the distraction and the garbage (((feature-full))) (3-digit iq people call that bloat) interfaces.
kys and kys again if you fail the first time

Yeah, let's be honest here. There's a reason discord QUICKLY took over as the standard for server/group interaction. It's got a ton of shit TeamSpeak can't hold a candle to and that's the sad truth.

Robert Powell

Yeah, there is a reason but it's not the one you gave. It's because they had venture capital money to burn and a marketing team smart enough to appeal to the nu males, basedboys and nonces who flocked to their product and willingly gave them all their data for free.
