Using Discord

Discord can be a scary and overwhelming place. This guide aims to make clear how to get the most out of the Superteam server.

​​🙂 General Etiquette:

​​Tagging Roles:
  • ​​Don't tag the @Member role unless you have a very, very, very strong reason to do so. It's irritating to other Members.
  • ​​Feel free to tag particular roles (e.g. @Designer, @Developer, @Marketer, @Writer, etc) in the #help-wanted channel.
  • ​​Get your own role by going to the #role-self-assign channel
​​Use Threads:
  • ​​Channels are not great for persistent conversations. You get interrupted by other people, or your messages about a certain topic may get left behind. That's why we strongly encourage you to use threads.
  • ​​If you think your response will require another response from someone, create a thread instead of responding in the main channel.
  • ​​To check threads in a channel, click on the Threads icon in the upper right of Discord, next to the channel description.
DMing Effectively:

​​📺 Channel Guide

Here are a few key channels to monitor and get familiar with.
#intros
Introduce yourself here to the group. This is the best way to tell everyone about yourself and how awesome you are!
#help-wanted
When asking for help, be specific as possible about the scope of the project, the timeline, and the compensation.
When responding to a help request, try starting a thread to ask any follow-up questions or indicate you're going to DM someone.
#share-an-insight
Share the best tweets, articles, and videos you come across.
Ideally, include a short excerpt, quote, or a bit of text explaining why you found the link you're sharing to be interesting
#events
This is where we talk about everything events - IRL as well as URL.
Share events you’re going to, plan events if you want to host a dinner or get the latest scoop about where the party is happening soon!
#dev-talk & #design-talk
These are domain-specific channels where like-minded gigadevs and designers get together to talk about their respective crafts.
#voice-chat
Used for voice chats. We encourage you to use this when talking with others so that other Members can sit in/contribute ideas where appropriate. Wednesdays Watch Parties also happen here!
