TotalFreedom Discord ServerHello Everyone,
I am please to announce that I am launching the TotalFreedom official discord server. This thread will contain a load of (hopefully useful) information to get you started on Discord, and to understand how it all works. If you do have any questions, please feel free to post and I will try to help as best I can. Please also read #Important-Information when you do join, as the rules do differ somewhat from the forum guidelines and rules.
What is Discord?:
Discord is a free online platform designed for gamers to communicate. The TotalFreedom discord has been configured with both voice and text channels allowing you to communicate with fellow members in a way that suites everyone. Discord allows a greater level of privacy than conventional means of communication like Skype as all users are simply identified by a UUID, and you are unable to see other servers that the member may be a part of, unless you are also apart of that same server. Discord provides both a web based client, and a desktop client, available on Windows, Mac, Android & iOS (I think Linux is either just launched or coming soon, im not 100% sure).
How do I join this discord server?:
We have a link that will allow any and all members of the TotalFreedom community to join the server, those outside of this community that do not have the link, are unable to join. You can join us and view the Discord on the web based client, by clicking this link: discord.gg/Zj9aUaR
How do I post things?:
We have removed the need to manually introduce yourself on the Discord before getting a role and access to the server. You do however have to had verified your e-mail address before you will be able to join us. This setting may change without notice.
How do I get a rank on Discord?
Ranks are assigned after you post in this thread. All you need to do, is join Discord and then post on this thread your Discord username (Eg Wild1145#1234). Someone from the Discord Admin team tends to check this thread once a week (More or less) so please be patient. Once your request has been completed someone from the Discord staff team will like your post. If you are promoted, you will need to re-post here for me to update your rank group on Discord. There are different permissions for different ranks, and different text & voice chat rooms for different ranks. Please also note if you do not have a profile picture on your Discord account, you will not be eligible for a role and your request will simply be ignored.
What are these other ranks on the Discord?:
There are a few Discord Exclusive ranks available to certain members that are invited. There are Discord Administrators & Discord Moderators, these are responsible to maintain the server and handle the administrative side to things. There is also "Discord Guests" who are special guests that have been selected to hold this title. Discord guests have no extra permissions, just a shiny title. Discord Administrators "Own" the discord server, and have access to every permission. Discord Moderators are there to help the administrators keep chat moderated and ensure that things go smoothly. The discord administrators will be able to see all channels, and the Discord moderators can see all the channels they are a member of, but with moderation permissions (For example a Discord Mod that is just a telnet cannot see the senior area). We generally only appoint staff to these roles, however on occasions we may open applications to everyone.
Discussions in Discord:
Discussions in private (Admin) channels of discord as to be treated the same as here on the forums, confidential. They should not be print screened and should not be screen shared, especially outside the admin team of TotalFreedom. Users caught discussion discord conversations, sharing print screens or sharing their screens of Discord conversations will be permanently banned from the server, and will not be welcome back in the future. This rule is non-negotiable, and will be strictly enforced by our team.
Appealing a Discord Ban:
We only generally ban people on the Discord server as a last resort, or if we believe your activities are generally disruptive to the wider community. Generally once you have been banned we will not reverse our decision, however if you would like to be considered to be released from a Discord ban, you should click here and fill out the form. This will go to all the Discord server staff, and a discussion and decision can be made.
