    I remembered before I join we talked as a staff team of swapping over to discord over TS3. I see that that's that and we swapped over, but the discord has too much garbage on it. There's like 15 text channels and like 21 voice channels. Most of these channels are completely useless and don't see much use. We should try to simplify the discord by removing most text channels and most voice channels. We don't need 15 text channels for normal users to see, that's just too much garbage. And for the voice channels, just organize and group together channels that are the same thing. Like why is there 5 room chats when there's no way you will ever see more than 3 full? Or a super badmin room with 1 super admin?

    tl;dr Get rid of most of the 15 text channels and 21 voice channels. Make the discord more clean.

    I believe the discord is fine where its at for non staff members since there are separators that divides the channels into specific discussion categories. Voice will be taken into consideration

    There are a stupid amount of text channels to the extent that it makes it more complicated and I don't like trying to talk in it, some of the channels just seem as if they're there for the sake of being there

    Discord should be for casual chatting, if we need to talk about carefully indexed issues in all the right sections we should use the forums. Quick questions like the ones from Dawson 'do you like this change to this prop' don't deserve their own section that you have to specifically check, if it's flood talk about it in Flood etc etc

    Tldr discord is a place to talk not a replacement for the forums this is aspie and kills the forums, which is the first place people see other than the server

    Players do not have to know what changes one of us is trying to confirm so that's why there are channels that are specifically designated for staff related discussions. If you don't want to get involved in flood development, I'll be more than happy remove your role so you don't have to see a wall of text channels.

    Why don't you just have one channel for these confirmations, I've never seen more than one conversation going on at a time

    We've first introduced suggestion channels on our slack team and incorporating that on discord to bring up ideas that no one else should really know about (confidential) in order to protect our 'work' from other communities that are snooping around, getting ideas from us for their server(s). Hence, why we've recently made our flood issue tracker private.

    In short, suggestion channels aren't meant to replace the forums, they are created & made private for a reason. We will make suggestion threads or github issues if they have permanent value, text channels are sort of just ideas

    You shouldn't be concerned of what we do behind channels that are private

    Yes, there are a stupid amount of text channels. I've said it before that I can't even read them all myself.

    Some of the discussions would be better off here on the forums. It's not the end of the world though.

    Why don't you hide channels that don't suit your interest? That is an option after all.

    As for Discord being for casual chatting, thats kind of hard when you are also using it to run a community and communicate/share ideas with fellow staff members and contributors alike. In my opinion everyone has their own set of channels that they prefer, Dawson may stick to suggestion channels whereas someone else may be purely interested in making sure people are active or checking out the latest votes/changes in the staff team.

    Anyways like Jeff said we can't please everyone, and I think our current system is the best way to be the closet to that.

    I only see like 9 text channels (not including rules and the "---" channels), 3 of which I was manually added to. So the regular user should only see 6 text channels by default right? That doesn't seem like too many. Voice channels on the other hand, could use some purging.

    I see 9 as the regular I am. 9 is far too many. I can't even keep track of 3 and there are 9 for regular users? One of which is discord server rules (seems like a useless one but ok). Also the ----- chat channels just looks sloppy in the text and voice channels.

    It probably won't be as bad if channel categories gets added

    I imagine that would allow certain categories to be "collapsed." Which would alleviate it at least.

    Yeah, I wish we could just collapse 8/9 channels I see.

    Yeah but I don't want to miss what people are seeing because I hid a channel.

    Just feel lucky you're not a staff member. We have 44+ channels for some reason.

    Not including the "dividers."

    Perhaps we'll consider merging or adjusting some things as we settle into the Discord server.
