An embedded Discord would be cool as hell, would give the site a little more utility than it already has and possibly increase traffic to the site itself. I'd also put links to the Discord, in case new members end up wanting to join it, too.
For anyone that didn't see AI and me talking about this in creative, I held off doing this so far in case anyone didn't want to deal with the risk of getting trolls, etc, from people who randomly found the link. Adding a link is super easy and an embed box shouldn't be much harder, so it's mostly a question of whether you're okay with that risk.
Right now there's extremely minimal traffic outside of established members and people who show up from Twitter links, so the odds of getting trolls any time soon are not high.
It's possible to set up roles on Discord in a way that kind of inhibits new people from joining to troll, you'd just have make a channel for new arrivals and perhaps have them do something to get a role that lets them into the rest of the server.
@Random User the tales speedrun discord does this, all channels are locked to new people except an introduction channel and after someone posts in that they can be granted access to the rest
I leave it to the community--I'm certainly OK with it, but I wouldn't want to do this without y'all's consent.
