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:

  • #general - main 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)
  • #releases (NOT YET IN USE) - in the near-future, this channel will contain messages from a release bot stationed within, whenever Kametsu or LostYears puts out a release. Full details on this will be forthcoming.
  • #nsfw - this channel is SPECIFICALLY for mature content (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!
  • #gaming - this is a channel oriented towards gaming-related chat. If you wish to use it for things such as a gathering place for your multiplayer games, you can.
  • #kametsu-irc - this channel serves as our IRC <---> Discord relay bridge, a Discord bot sits in here and relays messages back and forth between it and our IRC channel on Xertion. While we do permit you to speak in this channel, we encourage you to make more use of #general instead.
  • NOTE: These are just the current channels on the server. We may create more as the need arises, in which case this list will be updated here.

 

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://discordapp.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 "Hammer & Chisel, 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://discordapp.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.discordapp.com/hc/en-us - or you can ask me directly.

 

ALSO: Once you have set up your Discord account, if you are part of a special usergroup on the forum, such as Donator, Uploaders, Project Crew, etc - PLEASE LET US KNOW HERE IN THIS THREAD! We mark users with their appropriate role on our Discord server, and we would like to make sure it remains consistent with your usergroup here on this forum. Give us both your Discord username and Discord ID - note, do NOT give us your Discord nickname, this is something you can set per-server.

 

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).

 

Again, any questions, consult https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us, or contact me directly. Thanks, and enjoy!

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

 

I've also pushed your Discord account level on the server to match your usergroup here.

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.
