What is Spectrum?sooo.... spectrum just launched and it looks like we have a wing commander CIC organization forum over there too.. if anybody wants to bounce in there and start chatting up wing commander and squadron 42.. I wouldn't mind some company
In essence, it's a unification of a new forum set and integrated chat. In time it'll allow communication between in and outside the client directly. Supposedly it has more powerful moderation features for the org chat rooms and forums as well.What is Spectrum?
I just discovered Discord...which is pretty cool.
In the short term, Spectrum is RSI's new forums and chat. As it gets more features, as Whistler said, it will eventually replace the existing ones completely. Currently it's missing a few key bits of functionality, compared to the existing forums but it's added a whole lot for orgs. Basically every org automatically has their own private chat and subforum. Orgs have control too over who can moderate or what permissions members have in that area. Spectrum will eventually grow in features though and there will be a mobile app so you can chat and such on the go. There will eventually be VOIP included and not only that you will be able to access spectrum from within the game. This means I can be flying a mission battling pirates with an org mate and chatting using voice but also talking to our buddy who's stuck in traffic and the other org guy sitting at his desk at work.In essence, it's a unification of a new forum set and integrated chat.

Eventually the original forums will be closed and set for archival reference only. App coming soon for Android and iOS.
