The Piazza's 10th Birthday Chat (Sat 26th May) - now extended to Monday

Post by Big Mac » Mon May 14, 2018 12:35 am

It's ten years since Ashtagon founded The Piazza on the 22nd of May 2008!

I appear in AuldDragon's live-streamed Spelljammer game on Saturdays, but I should be able to pop into our Super-Secret Pop-Up Discord Chatroom before the game. There will hopefully be plenty of other people around to chat to you, while I'm rolling 1s and trying to avoid dying during Auld's game.

The chatroom is going to open on the Saturday and then vanish in a puff of smoke after the end of the day.

The link will be posted here on the day.

EDIT: Come to the super-secret 10th Birthday Discord Chat here! (This link will self-destruct in 24 hours.)

EDIT2: I've just replaced the original link (above) with a new one that will self-destruct in another 24 hours. (So I'll be able to continue chat to you, while I'm in the pub, if it is quiet.)

EDIT3: Gravesguardian has put in a request for The Piazza to have a permanent presence on Discord. I have extended the one-day-only chatroom for the third and last time, in order to give him and the people who support him a chance to pull other people over to Discord and showcase the advantages Discord might have to the Piazza community. Please go take a look, use it and then vote on Gravesguardian's topic.

An alert of at least 12 hours prior would be nice for those across the pond. Time difference and all... East coast is -5 hours and West coast is -8 hours to London time. ;)

There is an event on Faceborg that you can follow, if you are part of the Faceborg Collective.

I've got the time down as 12 noon (British Silly Time) but I'm going to open the chatroom earlier and set the self-destruct countdown on 24 hours. So everyone should get a chance to get in at some point.

I will be vanishing myself, to take part in AuldDragon's live-streamed game, but you are welcome to watch the game and comment on my poor dice rolls in the BIrthday Chatroom.

If I can manage to get out of bed at 7am (Canada time) on a Saturday morning, I'll be present.

I plan on checking on on the birthday chat. However, I may be rushed off my feet — the hotel has all but one room booked that weekend.

Since I use Discord for other servers, I already have an account/name established on there. I'm not aware of a way to change my name on a single server, or I would've done that for the Piazza server.

UPDATE: I figured out how to change my nickname on a per-server basis. So I'm Tim Baker on there, now.

A couple of people asked for more time in the chat, so I've created a new link to the super-secret 10th Birthday Discord Chat that will last for 24 hours from now.

(So I'll be able to continue chat to you, while I'm in the pub, if it is quiet.)

I've renewed the invite again: https://discord.gg/uvhdGb. Try it now.

If you want a long-term Discord server for The Piazza, please start a topic in The Kippin' Griffin. :)

EDIT: Gravesguardian has already done this: Does The Piazza need/deserve it's own fulltime Discord server?
