Default The Unofficial GDS Discord Server

I have created an unofficial GDS Discord Server. If Arlie or Adam decide that the thread should be moved, please do so. However, I decided to post it here as this Discord aims to complement the already existing IRC channel and has the goal to bring the community together in live discussions. Please remember that all of the Grey Dog Software rules apply in there, even if it's a platform that is in no way affiliated with Grey Dog Software.

There are currently channels about several games, including the TEW series, WMMA series, Bowl Bound and Fast Break Series, among others.

Here are the rules as written on the discord server:

Rules:

Welcome to the unofficial GDS Discord. All GDS Forum Rules apply here and please keep in mind that this is a family friendly Discord Server, so please keep in mind the most basic rules:

0: Reading and respecting the entirety of the rules is mandatory if you wish to be a member of this community. By remaining on this Server you acknowledge that you have read and accepted these terms and agree to respect them.

1: No Offensive Language, no kind of any NSFW content, no discrimination or insults of any kind is allowed under any circumstances.

2: No discussions about piracy or any other illegal activities should ever be held here. This covers both GDS games or any other kind of game/platform.

3: No flaming, no spamming, no advertising of any kind. Sharing of external links should be made in conformity with all the GDS rules and all the rules listed in this section.

4: No asking for Mod, Admin or any other kind of power position. These positions will be given to GDS Staff, Mods or other selected RESPONSIBLE members that may help run the community.

5: Any GDS Mod and Staff Member will automatically be assigned a role of either Mod or Admin, respectively, provided that they send me a PM on forums to verify their identity. This includes Game Developers and all of the GDS Staff if they so wish to join.

6: This Discord is an unofficial GDS platform and has no official affiliation with Grey Dog Software. However, we do strive to meet their rules and standards. If you see any of these or any other GDS rules being broken, please report it immediately to a staff member.

We wish to make this a friendly platform for everyone to be able to discuss their favourite GDS games and we will always provide any help to GDS and its community within our possibilities.

7: Please keep in mind that when you enter this discord you will automatically be assigned as a guest until a staff member gives you the member role. At this point you will be able to make normal use of this discord and its platforms.

8: I reserve the right to terminate anyone's membership at any point, for any reason, at any time, so please follow the rules and do not bother or troll the members of this community.

9: No usage of inappropriate usernames or profile pictures is allowed.
Thank you for reading.

Link for joining: (Permanent Invite Link)

Again, please keep in mind that GDS rules apply and that all GDS staff and mods are invited to the discord and will be staff members upon joining after confirming their identities via forum PM. Additional RESPONSIBLE staff members may be chosen to help deal with the discord day to day operations. You will be a guest automatically upon entering until a staff member assigns you as a regular member. (Do not despair if it takes a while, I will assign everyone as members when I am around.)

The goal is to eventually get this to be a "sticky" thread if there is a good participation, if this helps the community in high traffic days, as intended, and if the GDS staff agrees to it at some point.I hope this can be used as helpful tool to the community if there is sufficient participation.

Yesterday we have reached the milestone of 50 members. Thank you to everyone that has joined and that keeps making this a friendly community where we can discuss our GDS games and other matters in the most civilized way possible.

Update 2: Some channels were merged or removed, thus providing a new experience where it is easier to center the conversations as to people not to feel excluded. Upon joining you will no longer be a guest, you will be a member and will be able to start talking to other members of the community immediately. 2 Mods have been assigned, one of those is also a mod of the GDS boards. And last but not least, our channels include the possibility to discuss all GDS games, which include MMA5 and there is also a channel for other games, as well as several voice channels.

We currently have 78 members. While the majority still discusses TEW, the WMMA5 channel has already began being used and we expect to be able to provide the best service for anyone that wants to have fun and discuss their favorite GDS games, as well as a variety of topics, such as sports, wrestling, MMA and so on. Thank you to all that have been making this a great community.

We are still growing, so changes may and will naturally come with time, but thanks to everyone that has given feedback.

I have no idea how slack works. (Although I think it's similar to some extent.) So you'd have to join and see for yourself if you want to.

Update 3: Adjusted Bots positioning and permissions to improve their using. Added a new mod and added a music bot with the respective music text and voice channels. For now it is controlled by Admin and Mods only, in order to avoid the channels being clustered and the content is easier to manage and control this way. We are currently with 96 members. Thank you to everyone that has helped make the community grow and that has contributed to make possible that we all have a great real time experience discussing our favorite GDS games and any other subjects.

I will continue operating the discord and updating it for as long as people want to make part of the community.

Update 4: Fixed a problem that allowed guests to post on the general channel. We are currently at 111 members. Thanks to everyone that keeps making us grow. I would just like to say, as some people have asked this in the past, that this discord does not aim to replace the forums in any way, as they continue to be the official and only way to get all the GDS content. It just aims to complement them by providing a unique real time text and voice interaction.

Which is great as a lot of us don't have many people to talk about these games outside of here. So to reiterate, this discord serves as a complement to forums and not a replacement. Thanks again to all of those who have made this community be a great one so far.

Update 5: After user feedback, removed the possibility for regular users to use the @everyone and @here commands, as they no longer ping everyone except when used by mods or above for server announcements or specific important situations. Changed prefix for the bot commands to avoid a conflict that was happening between both bots in the music channel.

Edit: Removed the music bot Rythm (due to a conflict) and the music is now provided by the original Dyno bot. Still with access from mods and above only for the commands, but everyone can listen and do requests to mods and above.

It had to be done for the greater good. Plus, mods and admins can still use it for announcements when needed and such. RIP @everyone, 2018-2018

Update 6: Added specific generic tags (non overlapping roles with the sole purpose of group tagging) for TEW, WWMA and Other Games, so that players within those groups (those who choose them, as they are optional) can tag each other, thus keeping the use of @everyone unneeded and disabled. Member count is currently at 126. Thanks to everyone that has made this a great community and real time experience for the GDS fan base.

We are accepting applications for our first community game. It will be a TEW 2016 game. The mod to be played is still to be selected. Right now we are accepting applications and depending of the number of interested people we will set a date for it to start according with rules/guidelines to follow, etc. For more info you can join our discord, which is also the place to apply. We have a dedicated channel for participants (so that everyone can have access to it in one place) and we will be seeing how this goes. If it works well, more community games may follow and not just TEW ones.

At this point there are no plans to make a dynasty out of it but that can change if the players involved are interested in that option. I will oversee things along with the discord staff, but will likely not take place due to professional commitments that are taking some of my time these next few weeks. Codey (Discord staff member) will be participating. More news to come soon.

After the conclusion of our first community game, the channel used for it is now open to everyone that wishes to set, play and/or discuss multiplayer games in real time.

Added rule 9 to our discord: "No usage of inappropriate usernames or profile pictures is allowed."

Further updates to the structure should also be expected, as always, in attempts to keep improving the real time experience provided by our discord. Thank you to everyone that has made us have 149 members so far.
