Introducing the CPPW Discord Server
Update: 9/9/23: Invitations expire after 7 days. The invite links on this page and on the news feed have been updated as of today. Settings on the main channel #the-watercooler have been updated to allow any member to create invitations. Click the gear next to #the-watercooler in the channel list. (See the how-to below.)
Email sucks, we all hate it. As a way of fostering better communication and collaboration, CPPW has established a Discord server for the members to use to engage in a more relaxed and chat-like way. If you feel comfortable diving right in, just go straight to The Water Cooler Channel and sign up.
What is Discord?
Discord is a community chat and collaboration platform similar to Teams and Slack. Discord originated in the gaming community, so it has a more whimsical feel. It has the same general features we’re familiar with from Teams, group chat, voice and video chat, file sharing, public and private channels.
How Do I Discord?
We have also created a graphic quick-start guide (thumbnail below). If you need help, you can tag the Admin, Connor Anderson using the @cwanders tag on Discord or email him at cmananderson at gmail.com.
Feel free to dive in. We expect everyone to obey reasonable standards of decorum and behavior towards one another. Abuse and toxic behavior will not be tolerated. Click image for a larger, more readable version.
