What is Discord
Discord is text chat application (with the addition of voice for some channels. At World Anvil we use discord for
- Helping each other with our World Building
- Developing World Anvil and have Discussions regarding upcoming features, bugs and ideas
- Run community competitions
- Having fun and meeting other people sharing the same passion for world building
When you will first join Discord you will notice that people are separated into different ranks. Below you will find a list of these ranks and what they actually mean!
Guild members are the supporters of World Anvil; we wouldn't exist without them! This is why they get their own colour-coded Discord role (as well as some exclusive channels). If you are a Guild member and didn't get your Discord role, go to your account settings and connect your Discord and World Anvil accounts (make sure that your World Anvil and Discord email addresses are the same).
There are several voluntary roles that you can assign to yourself. They are listed in the #info-roles-and-channels channel; just click on the corresponding reaction to the message with the roles and the bot will give the role to you! Keep in mind that these roles are pingable.
To make World Building a fun and productive process.
To make sure that World Anvil is built by the community for the community.
