Kametsu is now on Discord!

Recommended Posts

As you might have noticed by Koby's recent status update, Kametsu now has its own Discord server! Koby and I had a brief discussion about it, and he decided to go ahead and mess around with the idea. Soon as he had the invite link sent out on that status update, we got people connecting to it out the wazoo. We certainly didn't imagine it would catch on that quickly, but we are certainly pleased that it did. So if you guys are willing to make use of it, we'll make it official.

 

Discord has multiple ways in which you can use it - it has its own desktop app, of course, but it also has mobile clients for both iPhone and Android users...and for those who don't want to install anything (or who otherwise can't, such as in a restricted environment), Discord also runs straight from the browser itself! Pick whichever suits you best - myself, I prefer the desktop app and the mobile client together.

 

For you IRC channel regulars, don't worry. We are *NOT* planning on discontinuing IRC anytime soon! IRC continues to be an important communication method for us, as we operate our official XDCC distro bots on the IRC channel. In fact, we have set up a relay bot between our Discord server and our main IRC channel. This way, you can use both at the same time. To this end, we still HIGHLY recommend users continue to make good use of our IRC channel!

 

The channels on our Discord server (as of the initial post) are as follows:

  • MAIN CHANNELS - These are our core channels
    • #general is our primary channel of the server, this is where everyone will initially end up first. As the name implies, this is for general, anything-goes chat (except for mature content - PLEASE read below). This channel is also bridged with our IRC channel - so you can talk to everyone on IRC from Discord (and vice-versa)!
    • #mako-reactor is the news and current events discussion channel. Please note that discussions in this channel do have the potential to become heated, please keep topics within reason!
    • #memes is THE one-stop shop for your memes! Get (and post) your memes here!
    • #real-life-pics is pretty self-explanatory, this contains real-life photos that our members post. May contain selfies...
    • #guess-the-anime has a small game you play with a bot where you try to guess the anime via multiple screenshots
  • MEDIA CHANNELS - These channels are focused towards various media and hobby discussions
    • #anime-and-manga for your anime/manga discussions
    • #cartoons-and-comics hosts cartoon/comic discussions
    • #television-and-film contains everything relating to TV shows and movies
    • #gaming is oriented on game news and media
    • #tech is focused on anything technology-related, such as PC hardware, software news, etc
    • #music-spam is for you music folks out there that want to showcase what you like to listen to and/or think others would love to hear
    • #artwork-and-stories is geared towards you creative folks out there that want to share your creative side with others
    • #video-and-clips has all the video link spam you can handle
  • VOICE STREAM CHANNELS - these are for voice chats
    • Voice Chat: The primary general voice chat channel.
    • Game Streams: Use this voice channel only when streaming games via Discord itself
  • NOTE: In addition to the above channels, we do also have a NSFW channel called #nsfw - it is SPECIFICALLY for mature content only (ecchi, hentai, or other similar inappropriate content). Such content should ONLY be posted here, and NEVER ANYWHERE ELSE ON THE SERVER. You will be presented with a warning before being allowed to enter it, confirming you are 18 or older. If you are NOT 18 years of age or older, DO NOT ENTER the #nsfw channel! Also, DO NOT POST LOLICON OR SHOTACON ANYWHERE ON THIS SERVER, INCLUDING THE NSFW CHANNEL! This is strictly forbidden by the Discord Community Guidelines and we WILL ban you permanently without question if you do it.

 

So, want to give it a try? Follow these steps! I would recommend using the desktop app, unless you otherwise are unable to install programs on your PC.

  1. Download the Discord app from here: https://discord.com/download and install it. If it does not run automatically after installation, start it from your Desktop or your Start Menu (in Windows) - it will be in a folder named "Discord Inc"
  2. IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A DISCORD ACCOUNT - then register a Discord account from within the app, OR by going to https://discord.com/register - be sure to choose a good, strong password you'll remember. OTHERWISE: Login to the Discord app using your existing Discord account (email + password).
  3. Login via the app if you haven't already, using the account you just made.
  4. Once you have Discord installed and are logged in, join the Kametsu Discord server by clicking this invite link: https://discord.gg/wTMknvP
  5. Congrats, you are in!

 

Kametsu's Discord server rules are located here - please read these before joining it! You are also presented with this upon joining the server!

 

If you need further help setting Discord up to your liking, please take a look at this page: https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us - or you can ask me directly.

 

I would also highly recommend you go through your personal Discord settings and tweak them to your liking - you can access those settings by clicking on the little gear icon located in the same area as your Discord username and Discord ID (refer to above image).

Thanks for the information. I'll see if this is something we can work into the forum somehow.

Are you sure that's your Discord number? I tried lots of times, but no such luck.

I have posted official rules for the Discord server. They aren't that much different than our usual community guidelines but they do have a few specific to Discord itself that must be read and understood. Please be sure to read these BEFORE joining our Discord server!

UPDATE: The old invite link is no longer valid. The server structure was changed slightly - the new invite link is https://discord.gg/wTMknvP

 

The first thing you'll see when joining with this link, is that you'll have been dropped into a #readme channel. This channel contains a pinned message that has our rules for the Discord server. They are the same rules as posted above, but you'll still need to read them again, so as to be sure you understand them thoroughly. You can then join channels from that channel using the links at the bottom of the pinned message.

 

Any questions/concerns, please let me know. Thank you.

The updated invite link and the old link are both invalid now. Is there an up to date invite?
