I'm surprised 6 people put "Something else" in the Staying in Touch poll...

I don't even know what other methods there are... paper mail?? 😆

Are you insulting real communication?!!! Paper mail is obviously superior. So much faster than texting or calling, and the traditional way is always the best way!

I mean, I don't have a Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat or TikTok account, I don't text or own a phone, and my friends don't really go on these forums much, so "Something else" was really my only option (besides video calling, I have been using Zoom a good deal). My primary method of communication is in-person.

I will say that you forgot to put emailing on there, though...

It just so happens that my channels of communication are nicely divided by the types of people I contact. By order of precedence,
  • I use Discord for Carmel Science Olympiad, which is my "something else"
  • I use Gmail for North Carolina Science Olympiad
  • Aside from scioly.org, Facebook and Messenger are for any other Science Olympiad matters
  • I use Instagram to contact my freshman-year roommate
  • I use GroupMe for UNC groups, because, for reasons I don't understand, the UNC student body adores GroupMe
  • Texts are for (mostly) low-priority matters
Everything just fell in place. I didn't design my reachability like this, but it's convenient that as soon as I see a notification, I can tell which group the sender belongs to by checking which app sent the message. Actually, because only a few people from each group reach out to me each week, I can usually even tell who sent the message before I read it.

Carrier pigeon is clearly the fastest and most reliable method of communication.

I could've sworn that I read something about the fastest mode of communication being by radio wave, via the repeater on the Mars Rover...

Yeah, one of the easiest tests to self-study for if you have a teacher who deliberately makes tests and assignments easy... *shrugs*

Perhaps you could add discord? Seems to me that a lot of people use that here

I thought that was on there. Besides to be fair a lot of teachers send us postcards.
