So for the Modkita project (yes that is now the name) there have been a few people on here that I have wanted to directly communicate with. The lag from messaging back and forth was getting annoying. As such I just created a Shapeoko Users Discord server for the community. Feel free to join. Here is the Server URL:
https://discord.gg/AYAsRNt (this link should never expire)
Also if someone from Carbide3D wants to take over ownership of the server, I will be more than happy to transfer it.
