discord is a free to use service (generally used by gamers) used for group text and voice chats! it has a super sleek, user friendly design and the mobile app is also super easy to use and has never frozen up on me. i think it'd be good for route 50 chats because it allows the option for multiple channels within servers; which would help with those times when two people are talking about roleplays and three about the new fire emblem game.
the link at the bottom of this post directs to the rules portion of the server; please be sure to read and obey them! and for any mods that are joining: i'll make ya'll mods of the discord server, too, just for the sake of keeping everything under control if a lot of people do happen to use this, haha!
