Introduction:

Hey all!

A long time ago, I started a CC Discord server, and it was and still is a big success. We've helped numerous people with their problems quickly, laughed together, discussed ideas and shared cat pictures with over 150 members!

Today I re-launched a new version of this CC Discord with more properly optimized structuring, clean looks and correct configuration to give you the best experience.



About the server:

This server focuses on providing a quick and talkative chat based place for people with interests in ComputerCraft and/or OpenComputers to interact, ask for help, show creations and more.

Everyone is welcome here and banning or kicking shouldn't be necessary. Still, some people may push limits and therefore we have to enforce simple rules. Do not harass, excessively insult, act annoying, spam or post malicious content. These rules can be interpreted in a lot of ways, but as long as you don't have malicious intentions, you don't need to worry about it ;).

To help you during your stay we've specified a few distinct places to chat, called channels. We provide the following channel structure:

INFORMATON
- #welcome -> In this text channel you can view relevant information regarding channels, roles and rules.
- #news -> This channel wil present you with occasional (important) updates regarding the Computer Modding community. For really rare special events, an @everyone ping may be used.

COMPUTERCRAFT
- #computercraft -> For discussing anything directly related to ComputerCraft. Here you can ask for help, share ideas and more.

OPENCOMPUTERS
- #opencomputers -> For discussing anything directly related to OpenComputers. Here you can ask for help, share ideas and more.

LISTS AND ADS
- #creations -> Here you can advertise your creations for both OC and CC. You should only post one message per creation with a link to a forum post if available. This channel is not for chatting, only for posting!
- #resources -> Here you can post things you found useful along your journey of programming - stuff you didn't make but you think may help out others. Not for advertising your own stuff. This channel is not for chatting, only for posting!

OFF-TOPIC
- #everything ->
For anything, literally anything that is not directly related to ComputerCraft or OpenComputers. You can talk other mods here, or post a picture of your cat. We're still the internet.
- #meta -> The meta channel is for anything regarding this Discord itself. Found something wrong, weird or have ideas how this Discord could be better? Share and discuss them here!

That are all the text channels. Moreover, there also exists a voice channel voice for those of you who must speak out loud.

I hope everyone can benefit from and enjoy their stay in the Discord servers. Idea's, issues and feedback should be posted in the Discord itself! See you there!

Advantages of discord:
- No account required
- Multi platform (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS)
- In-browser also supported. No need to download anything.
- Quick answers to your questions
- Friendly people

I'm not saying Discord is bad or anything, I've never used it. However, there is an official Computercraft IRC channel (#computercraft on irc.esper.net) which doesn't require an account and has clients for just about any operating system you can think of (plus half a dozen browser clients).

IRC doesn't have voice chat and Discord also supports browsers (the main ones at least).

People are a bit more talkative on the Discord, although little of it seemed to be ComputerCraft related.

I knew of the IRC before, and have joined it a couple of times, but I'm not an IRC kind of guy, and that's why I decided to make a Discord server, because that one fits my needs perfectly, while IRC doesn't have some things I want a chat client to have. IRC is not bad, it has it's advantages, but I like Discord ;)

Yeah that seems pretty true, it is not really ComputerCraft focused sometimes, but I don't think that's an issue.
That would also be the advantage of IRC, people are less talkative, but more main subject focused...

Anyway, everybody is welcome :)

Hello Everybody!

I have decided to make a Discord Server where you can discuss about ComputerCraft, coding, advertising, asking for help, or just chill out.

Discord is a chatting client that's free, simple, and easy to use. It's better than Skype and Teamspeak combined! You can get more information here

The staff there will be great and you will have a very nice experience in this server.

We don't need a separate thread any time someone starts up a discord channel related to ComputerCraft.

Also why even make another one when you can simply join this one!? The need has been filled.

No, no. Discord server. Servers can have multiple channels.

Nope, channel. You're still using Discord's servers, because they haven't published any server software that I can see. Even if your channels ("servers") can have sub-channels, you're still not actually operating a server. You're using someone else's server. Their inaccurate use of "server" is somewhat irksome, as they should really know better.

They could call the channels "servers" purposely, seems like they arent opening the client for 3rd party servers.

Didn't see something about it (maybe failed in my research) but think it would be a cool things. Without escaping the forum at all, i will be easier to discuss about anything ^^ (like asking help, giving advice, share challenges and ideas)
