    As the “NMA should start chatting in Steam” thread brought up, it’d be nice if our community had a live place where people can hang out and chat. A few more options popped up that weren’t the Steam chat, which, while perfectly functional, has an odd voice chat, some members don’t like it as a platform or just have issues running it, etc. So it came to my mind using the Discord voice and text chat program for this purpose.

    Discord is a quite new software and it has a bunch of functions, voice comm is clear, low latency, servers are very customizable, yadda yadda. It’s the best VoIP service available as of now. And it’s completely free.

    You only need to either paste it in your client or just click it to go there directly. The app is available in every platform, even in browser and mobile devices. Actually those of you using mobile might like it. Feel free to join! Only requirement is to be a member. And well, you can be a non-member but then don’t hog a room to play CS:GO with your other NMA buddies. Make your own server for that.

    RULES

    - First of all, common sense and forum principles apply. If you've got that right you might not even need to read any of the below, but please do anyway.
    - You don't need to be a forum member to join the server, but if you've come across here first do check out the site, over at the links. Feel free to invite anyone as long as you know that they'll respect the rules.
    - The current setting will have you logged in for 10 minutes until you can post, and then will be given the @Fresh out of the Vault role. - Very little is off-topic. It’s better to talk about what is convenient in the respective rooms to avoid overlapping and being more organized. - First of all this is a gaming server. Remember that when thinking of starting a new topic. Look at the links to find more fitting places if need be.
    - NO spamming. If you want to post big amounts of links or images (not exceedingly so), use #shitpost_and_memes.
    - The server an English speaking one. Go to a private group chat, or a designed room if it’s added, if you want to talk with others in a different language.
    - Do not insult other members or try to agitate them with malicious intent. If you cross the line and they tell you you did then leave them alone or your posting privileges will be limited for a time. Friendly bantering is fine, but try to keep a level head and avoid using excessively inflammatory terminology such as slurs.
    - Posts regarding things like homosexuality/race/politics/religion/sexism/etc along the same vein are only allowed if they're related to a game, if they are out of that they are ONLY allowed at the Discussions category. And then, keep a level head. Outright bigotry is not allowed.

    - Transgressions against the rules can result in a Timeout sentence, this means you will not be able to talk in anywhere but in Timeout. You can use the Timeout channel to appeal your situation, and will spend some down time there regardless for a varying amount of time. You can also get muted automatically by the Bot for small amounts of time if you spam links and the like. If you don't change your behavior you will be banned. If you leave the server to circumvent to get rid of the role, you'll be banned.
    - Absolutely no NSFW (gore, pornography, and other repulsive images and videos), except on #nsfw. The specific rules are pinned there. You also should keep the NSFW topics there if they're too risqué.
    - On that, nothing illegal is allowed on this server. We are on a gaming network, this means definitely no warez talks. That includes all rooms and categories.
    - If you feel like some of the above rules should be modified, removed or added, in the limits of reason, suggest the changes at #suggestions.

    - To be clear, this is not really official. Penalties here don't apply there nor the reverse. The Staff, while some are so in the forums as well, are not to consult about forum matters.

    - Roles, Rooms and other breakdowns are in the #rules room of the server.
    - Roles, Rooms and other breakdowns are in the #rules room of the server.

    Roles - are assigned for colored names and giggles for most users, but these are the roles with actual functions:

    Owner/Admin: Me and whoever trustworthy that offers, all permissions on.
    Moderator: More people with the permissions that don’t involve management of the server itself.
    Deputy/Moderator: Simply permissions to kick and have some anti troll/bot measures All of them have access to all rooms.
    Pervert: Can enter the NSFW room
    Orderite: You are an Orderite Robot Servant: The different active bots. Don’t bother talking to them.

    #Welcome: The rules will be displayed here as they come.
    #general: Just about anything that you think of, if it’s more appropriate than for any other room.
    #media: Share videos, pictures, gifs, etcetera and commenting
    #Shitpost Room: Shitposting, keep it here
    #NSFW/The Order: Mostly honorary. To talk about… Orderite Stuff
    #suggestions: Please. To suggest and discuss improvements and additions to this post and the server. #Gladiatorial Arena: To debate and discuss more serious things, or plain unpopular opinions.
    #Radio Controller. To use the commands for the music Bot(s) in the Lone Wolf Radio voice channel. You can also share music.
    Voice Channels: Not much going on here. Will be added as they are needed.
    Rooms 1, 2 and 3: Free voice rooms. For talking. Yeah.
    Lone Wolf Radio: Here the bots will play music. Varies on how it works.
    AFK: Token afk channel

    Hot Tips: - WIP - You can add some profile links to your Discord profile. For example, Steam and Twitch. Put them if you want to interact with others in those other ways, or for visibility. This is still a WIP and has some things yet to come. More comprehensive rules, customizing it more, some other more admin/moderator to keep the peace, maybe more bots and especially; more members!

    So feel free to leave as much suggestions as you want! There’s a #suggestions room there too for this purpose. For real, they are kind of needed. About everything, even modifications or this post itself. it’s a community work, after all

    :lalala:

    The format is crazy on mobile, heh. Anyway, you had a typo in "Arnust". You meant "wonderful and handsome Arnust".

    There's some mismatched data, still. Can more than one person be able to edit a post in NMA?

    And where is this sticky-ed to? It may be cool to have it in the "Useful Links" down there too.

    Not without being mod or admin...well they gave me permission to edit when I was just on news. Anyway I'll see what I can do. Are you talking about the #channel info which is one line after another?

    I'm thinking, couldn't we use the Discord server for the Podcasts as well? There seems to be a voice chat option, does it work and can it record?
