I know I answered this in the chat, but for everyone else: I've disabled "presence" for performance reasons.For me, at least, on Brave Version 0.65.118 Chromium: 75.0.3770.80 everyone shows up as offline. On Chrome Version 75.0.3770.80 people who are online show up as online.
Last time I used Tox the group chat functionality was completely broken and had to be facilitated by a bot that had to invite you to a room every time you wanted to talk. Is that still the case? I imagine the reason for Matrix over IRC is because Matrix is more accessible to the zoomers who were using the KF Discord before it got deleted.Why Matrix over Tox?
Why don't we have an irc?
That makes sense, thanks for explaining.The goal is about competing (and now replacing) the Discord server. The biggest difference between IRC/uTox and Matrix is the client-side versus server-side paradigm. With Matrix all chat history is stored server-side, allowing for persistence and offline messaging (some uTox clients have weird workarounds to support this). Matrix is also federated, where uTox and uMatrix isn't.
