Next-Level Etiquette

Enable Push-to-Talk
Prevent distracting background noise by enabling this feature.

Test your A/V Setup
Confirm your audio setup is working properly with the Mic Test tool. Try these audio tips if you’re having difficulty connecting. Learn more about screen sharing and video calls (Mods or DMs only, respectively) so you can join online events without issue.

Use Direct Messages for Private Chat
Our server is set to send notifications for every message posted. Be kind and move one-on-one conversations to a Direct Message so members aren’t overwhelmed.

Request New Channels
If a topic warrants a new channel, post a question in #polls. “Can we get a ____ channel for ____? Who’s with me?” Once your vote has 10+ interested people, a mod will create the new channel.


By joining, you agree to uphold our community guidelines.

  • Be respectful, welcoming, and inclusive. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated.
  • Keep the conversation SFW, unless otherwise permitted in a specific channel.
  • No spam or advertising. Ask a moderator if you can promote something important to you.
  • Violators can be banned anytime, at the discretion of the moderators.
  • Report any violation of these policies ASAP to one moderator via DM. We’ll maintain anonymity, when possible.
