 Post subject: Your new Discord server!

Hi everyone, we've been testing out our Discord server over the last few days and we're ready to open it up to the public! Discord is an easy to setup app for text and voice chat. It also works through a browser link albeit with slightly reduced functionality (for example push to talk won't work in a browser). Has a phone app. It shows you who's online and who's playing what, be it Minecraft, Overwatch or games on Steam. You can add other chats, games and communities to it without logging out of another.

Here's the link:

Make sure you download the app aswell once you have an account, it's worth it.

Text chat and IRC:
The chat allows pinging players, embeded videos, emojis, formatting and other goofy gimmicks. Using a bot we have linked IRC in with it's own channel in Discord, you can communicate without issue between the two chats. It also works with Minecrafts IRC so you may speak to people logged into the server from Discord too. You can mute chat notifications by right clicking the channel you want to mute, or pressing the bell in the top right corner.

Voice client
With Mumble aging and being an absolute pain to help people setup, it was time to move on. Discord is easy to setup for last minute highlander joiners and has almost all the features and then some. You can redo all your binds like push-to-mute, change the volume of inidividual players and setup voice activity. The overlay seems to be much more reliable, and has increased functionalities. However Mumble isn't going anyhere and will be available for anyone who still wishes to use it!

You can read all about Discord's features here: https://discordapp.com/features
Here's some resources if you are interested: https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us

Please report any issues you have with using Discord, still may need to tweak the permissions. Any suggestions too. Currently IRC has it's own channel to speak to Discord, let us know what you think about that over the coming days, and if it would be better if #general chat was merged with IRC instead. Few tips, make sure you don't accidently join voicechat, it only takes a click. Discord runs on windows start up unless you disable it. It will also run in the taskbar the same way mumble does if you close the window.

Anyway I'm looking forward to a closer community and easier events, see you on Discord :18

If you need help tweaking your settings just ask. By default the channels will beep you if there's a message, you can mute channels by right clicking on them, or pressing the bell in the top right corner. Right click on player names to add friends. Using @ followed by a user name will ping them.

If you need an Admin you can type @admin, there's 4 of us currently.
SpA Members are able to kick and ban users, and mute/move them in voice chat. Don't fuck about!
Regular Users have access to all channels and many of the Discord features.
@everyone is the default guest rank when you join, they have limited access to features and can only join #general chat and General voice chat.

SpA has run pretty smoothly without setting strict rules on what's okay to post, so let's keep it that way :wink:

After properly trying it out, it seems superior to Mumble in many aspects. I still haven't grasped how to make new (voice) channels on our server, though – if I even can. Probably not.

People kept calling the General voice channel the ‘Minecraft’ channel, because “we” took it over first. Folks who wanted to play other games swiftly went to #1 Phil Mitchell, and/or the other channels currently available. Does Discord have a similar temporary channel system Mumble does? If so, can we give the ability to everyone?

Another thing I researched was the ability to change the CSS of the UI. You have to press Ctrl + Shift + I to activate the HTML & CSS window utility, which you can use to change just about everything. I, myself, did font-size:24px; for the text (so I can see it from my bed, because my eyesight is pretty shit):



Maybe we should ditch Mumble after all. As Junco already said, it even has an IRC link.

That's just the built-in browser developers tool.

So, the chat of discord is connected to irc chat? I always hate setting up irc so ask saint to do it, until i quit like 5 to 6 years back, haven't been using it since.
Would be nice if being on discord would mean i could see irc chat as well.

Now I don't have to remember my quakenet password! I really do enjoy the ability to see pretty much every chat message between servers and IRC through discord and being able to easily switch between channels. My only problem with it is the inability to make temporary channels.

I think it was nice that we were able to custom make channels in mumble but it's not a real necessity tbh.
We can make generic channels like 1, 2, 3, 4 , 5 , 6, 7, etc., right?
Like what we are used to in TS?

Reason you can't create channels is that the permission for it also allows people to delete or edit existing channels which could be destructive. At the moment we have a General voicechat and then #1, #2, #3, #4 premade channels. We can add more. Discord is still adding features though, so fingers crossed for temp channels.

May help if we all send an email or request of some sort to let the developers know we are really interested in the feature.

Edit: There's already quite a few requests for it, we can upvote requests. https://feedback.discordapp.com/forums/326712-discord-dream-land/suggestions/10354893-temporary-voice-group-idea
Edit 2: There is also already one thing in the works that will allow sub-channels: https://feedback.discordapp.com/forums/326712-general/suggestions/10349820-group-together-sub-chat

Yeah the browser app has reduced functionailty. Would recommend downloading the app, it doesn't need much (if any) setting up.

I like it too. Would like to see the irc and general chat channel merged though.
