While not exactly a fansite, it is an external website and now, bzflag is up on it as well!
Discord, on short, is a place where gamers (and others) can communicate through voice and text chat. Before proceeding, I would like to note that bzflag already has an IRC channel #bzflag over at the FreeNode network. Quite some people already idle in it, so it is something to check out.
But to maximize the efficiency over at the IRC, one has to set up a Bouncer (BNC), to get the backlog of activity upon a new visit. Next to that, one also has to get a client of their preference as many default ones tend to not be that attractive. But then again, this is all subjective. The point is that the majority of communities around the internet tend to be transferring from the IRC onto either Skype, Discord, or some other place. Most have it optional, so I would like you to see it that way as well; after all, the more the merrier, right?
Which place you choose is entirely up to you, of course. But I would appreciate it if you could jump in the Discord group on every so. If nothing else, to say "Hi" and check on any potential updates.

Once you're in, that's it. At the time of writing this, I'm considering of putting a jolly bot in so the place won't be that gloomy, but I'll see if there will be a need in the first place (:
