What if I don't want to/can't run Miscord myself?

You can donate $5 or more and get a gift code for up to 3 hosted instances for a month... basically, I do all the dirty work/host Miscord/keep it running for you. The only thing you would need to do is create a Facebook account and connect it with the chats. More info on Discord (#announcements or DM me at Bjornskjald#2002).
