Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're only referring to the fact that the system keeps the things you type in chat "recorded" so that you can go back through your chat log and find older posts you've made. It's not like they've got people reading through your PMs to see what dark secrets you're sharing with people. :P

It's always good to be aware of what information is stored by services you use, but as long as you're not sharing bank account info or other highly private stuff, I really don't think you've got much to worry about. Here's a link to their newest Privacy Policy (which was just updated very recently) if you wanna read up a bit on how they operate with that stuff: https://discordapp.com/privacy

Thanks! I don't have internet right now and my phone broke :/ but once I get those fixed I will be signing up. I will probably check out Telegram too.

Telegram is fun! I like the stickers :P I kinda faded out of skype for a few years now. It seems that telegram took up less space (for my phone at least).

and OH! D: Condolences on your phone x_x Hope it gets well/fixed soon! ^^

Mmhm. I literally never used Skype on my phone cause it was so bad. Took up a ton of space, drained my battery like crazy, and since the mobile version wasn't properly synced with the desktop version, I would literally have to just sit around and wait for a bunch of old messages to load every time I swapped between the two. It was pretty lame. Plus, the voice chats always seemed to have connection issues for no particular reason. So when Discord came around, me and most of my friends jumped ship and never looked back. :P

kind of like the problems I had with Skype too! :lol: Was thinking of using discord, but currently I'm still sticking with telegram. Don't want to use too many at the same time :P

yeah that's why I never had it on my phone. I don't know if the issue has been fixed in the last... 5 years?... or if it's just cause all my groups died out and I don't get 100+ messages every time i go on anymore, but I do have it on my phone now

I had AIM on my phone for like 3 hours before I hated it and deleted it. Skype I didn't even bother with. I couldn't even get it to run well on a PC, let alone a phone.

Telegram and Discord are great on mobile though!

I made an awesome find at work today!

There was an Australian sixpence from 1962 in my till!

Australia hasn't used pennies since 1966 so that coin is potentially worth up to $7 ($5.19USD) to a collector.
For reference, face value of the coin is only 70 cents (0.52USD) in today's money.

I ain't selling the coin though. It's mine now!

I've actually never seen one of those coins outside of a museum until today :P

Currency......the fantasy we all share. Coins are fascinating things, what?

Good example, D-Rock. Some coins and paper currencies really are artful.

We had a Robin's ice cream store open up recently and my stepdad was excited to find out they gave him American quarters to add to his collection. He's now a happy clam.

I remember coming across the Canadian Remembrance Day quarter while looking up references for a collar for Gamecobra's character, really neat design. Hilarious that the American government thought that it was designed for espionage. :lol:

This reminds me, I have a Sacagawea gold dollar that is in need of cleaning. I should get on that.

You should! They seem to have vanished from circulation.

They're a thing, they just don't ever get spent because people are dumb.

It's fun to collect uncommon designs. Someone at work used it to buy a soda a while ago.

Though I looked up "collector's condition" and those things fetch absurd prices. :shock:
I mean, I don't imagine there are many places that will take it for more than what it was minted for. :|

...and there's not enough of these coins in circulation to become so ordinary that people don't "collect" them on the occasions one comes into their pockets.

I used to go out of my way to use them. I'd get them from banks and then pay for small things with them.

I merely thought of them as nice finds, preferred not to use them, though. But sometimes you're a dollar short. shrug
