Unofficial MFGG Instant Message Groups
Up until the launch of the Official MFGG Discord in 2017, a few users had taken it upon themselves to create unofficial equivalents to fill the void. This page details these groups, the conditions under which they were run and their ultimate fates.
The Not-so Official Skype Group
In late 2012, several MFGGers got together to create an unofficial Skype group. The antics of this group were later chronicled in the joke game series Super Charisma Bros.. Some of the earliest members of this group included Vitiman, Madox, ~CaMtEnDo~, Genogenesis7, Miles, and StrikeForcer. By 2013, the group kept increasing in size, but with this growth, drama and bickering drew as well. A handful of the members didn't even have a presence on MFGG.
New MFGG Skype Group
After some members stopped following the rules on the previous group and filled it with low-quality messages, on August 17th 2015, Syaxamaphone created a new Skype Group to bring back the feel of the previous group. To prevent the same situation from happening twice, the rules had been changed quite a bit. To add new people to the group, at least 2 admins' votes were required, and admins were selected by popular vote. The rest of the rules were much less strict, to make them easier to follow.
Jimmy T.'s All Night-Disco Club
This unofficial Discord chat was opened in March 2016, following the mass exodus of MFGGers from Skype to Discord. However, this group proved to be a bit controversial, which caused a split in the userbase. One half migrated to Club Saturn EX, a group that would prove similarly controversial to the other side. After the success of Hotel Delfino, the group was put into archive mode.
In January 2017, after a great deal of drama and controversy regarding the MFGG community after the demotion of Nite Shadow, Mit had created a post criticizing the moderation of the newer IRC (and later Club Saturn EX) and the split faction that had resulted from it. Dustinvgmaster argued that the more directly MFGG-related chats were plagued by an overly abrasive atmosphere and offered a compromise if that was what needed to happen.
The compromise group was launched in the same month under the name Hotel Delfino. The staff was split 2 ways between the Jimmy T. staff and the Club Saturn EX staff. Both of the latter groups were later locked when it became clear Hotel Delfino was stable enough to sustain itself.
