ANNOUNCEMENT: RPGFan Official Discord Server is now Live!
« on: October 26, 2017, 07:57:26 PM »
Hey guys, I'm pleased to announce that the official RPGFan Discord server is now live. This is currently a "beta test" for what will hopefully become an important social asset for the site. (No, longer a Beta Test. We're LIVE BABY) We're letting our forum members be the first to come and join us and help us set up an active and inclusive community. As our beta testers, your feedback and ideas are most welcome. Come and hang out with us!

Questions and Answers!:

Q.) What is Discord?
A.) Discord is an easy to use text based chat app with voice capability aimed at the gaming community. You can use it via your browser or by downloading the Discord program (Recommended).

Q.) I just made an account, but I can't access the RPGFan Discord server! Help!
A.) Try waiting for 5 minutes. The RPGFan server is set up to require a user to have a verified email for at least 5 minutes. This is to help combat against possible spammers. If that still doesn't work, email or message me here on the forums and I'll try to fix it for you.

Q.) But I like the forums, I don't want it to go away!
A.) There are no plans at all to retire the forums. Discord is not meant to be a replacement to the forums, but more of a supplement. Forums are still superior than any alternative for things such as the Game Journal, discussions dedicated to certain series and longer essay-type posts.

Q.) Then why bother with Discord?
A.) Well, our more popular threads on the forums may end up being more suited for an environment like a Discord server. Threads such as "Whats the haps?", our TV, movie, book and music threads and general game discussions could benefit from the more live and dynamic atmosphere of a chatroom.

Q. What are the rules?
A.) The Rules are as follows.

1. While swearing and mature conversations are permitted, the following is not:
Bigoted
Racist
Homophobic
Transphobic

and Sexist language is not permitted.

2. Be respectful of other users and do not incite flamewars or encourage excessive political soap-boxing.

3. No pornographic links or images. Go take a cold shower.

4. We here at RPGFan do not support piracy in the least.  Please do not request or post about Emulators, ROMs, ISOs, etc, or information relating to anything of the sort.  This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted music, console and PC games, and feature films.  We support these industries both as an outlet and consumers ourselves.  We expect you to do the same.

5. No spam or linking to sites that may harm other users. Anyone who attempts this will be immediately banned, and too much of it will just result in the server banning outside linking all together. Self-promotion is allowed, as long as it is not excessive and you participate in the community in ways other than your own self-promotion. If your first post is you promoting your Kickstarter or youtube channel etc, you'll be banned immediately.

6. Q.) I want to report misuse on the Discord, who do I contact?
A.) If you see someone acting inappropriately on the Discord please make your first point of contact the members of staff in Pink with the title "RPGfan Discord Overlords". If it's an emergency there may be other members of staff in Yellow that can help.



Well, that's all folks. Please come join us on the Discord now. I'm here to answer any and all questions regarding this exciting new feature!

Once again, here is the link:

Bumping this for more visability since I noticed someone else on discord said they didn't know we had one.

One downside of Discord is that if you're busy on a day everyone happens to have a good conversation, you can't make that perfect quip you've been saving up hours later like on the boards.

Also minor thing, but is it possible to change the way streams are announced? Even if I mute the channel it will still give me notifications because the function ignores anything that mentions you specifically, and apparently that includes the @Everyone.

Right-click on RPGFan server icon -> click "Notification Settings"
Turn on "Suppress @everyone and @here".

Does this do what you want?

Never noticed that. You'd think they'd also make it accessible via the generic setting menu. Anyway there hasn't been a twitch announcement since I changed my settings, but it'll probably do the trick. Thanks.
