The Piazza has it's own server on Discord. It is considered an extension of these forums, rather than an alternative to the forums.
THIS IS STILL AN EXPERIMENTAL SERVICE:
As you may know, The Piazza opened a Discord server for one-day, with the intention of it only being open for the 10th Birthday Chat and there was a call for the server to stay open.
The server is now open on an experimental basis. It's not an open server - at this time - it's restricted to forum members for now. But we might schedule some special events (like the Birthday Chat) in the future, which are run on channels that are open to non-forum members.
I've already sent invites to let in the people in Gravesguardian's topic who had added me as a contact on Discord. If you want to be added, please post "add me" in this topic to get an invite.
NOTE: Discord invites are sent out as PIazza PMs. Please do not post your Discord account details in this topic.
DISCORD SERVER CHANNELS:
There are three types of channels we are considering using on the server:
- Open channels - Channels like our 10th Birthday Chat - which are open to non-members for a limited amount of time,
- Closed channels - Channels open to forum members, that stay open all the time and
- Private channels - Channels for specialist projects (this would be similar to the private forums that Threshold Magazine and Wildspace: The Spelljammer Fanzine have).
EVENTS ON THE DISCORD SERVER:
For the time being just pick a day and time and post here to let people know when you are going to turn up.
(You are encouraged to use Time and Date.com's Event Time Announcer - or another similar service - to translate times from your own timezone to everyone else's timezones. And don't forget that not everyone uses Daylight Saving Time and that not every country switches from DST to regular time on the same day.)
