The Internet has many bundles of apps for each and every purpose. For messaging and communication purposes we have many apps like Whatsapp, and Twitter and one of them is the discord app. People love to communicate through different apps. People get bored easily and want something new, after using any app for a period of time. So trying new apps for the same purpose is good somehow.
In this article, we are going to talk about the app discord which is a communication app. We will discuss the working of the discord app and how this app gives us many advantages.
What Is Discord?
Discord is a communication app and gamers used it most of the time. When they want to communicate between their game. It’s a VoIP communication app. Discord is a social platform that is used for easy communication and for creating different communities called Discord servers. Many people are added to those servers and they can voice their opinions, learn new things, and interact with new people.
Discord has also an important con in that most VoIP services are provided under specific servers and servers usually aren’t free which is the main problem. You have to purchase the server for using the VoIP services of your choice. Some services are available but not many and very common are available without any purchasing. There are some hosting companies available that provide you with free VoIP services when you rent a regular game server.
Frankly, it is more like a texting app like WhatsApp. You can talk easily through whatever means suits you either texting, voice calling, or video chatting. Discord is the VoIP platform which means it’s a voice-over IP platform. You can do voice calls or message communication with your other players. This app is mostly used by people who play online games and they communicate with other players through this app. Most of the games also have built communication tools. But due to high traffic, their signals are so weak that you can’t communicate properly. But through this, you can talk to your opponent or member very easily.
How Does Discord Work?
For using the discord app you have to create an account on the discord app. After creating the account you have to join several servers of your choice just like on Instagram you follow some pages for your enjoyment. A lot of small groups or communities are available you can join which one you like. You can learn many things in those communities and you can also interact with millions of people. Many services of discord are available under specific servers. Once you join the server you can avail of those services easily. But joining servers is not free of charge you have to purchase it then you can join that server.
You can make calls or do texting using this app. But you can only call those who are available on that server. You can also avail of the feature of video calling or texting. In this aspect, it’s like any other social app like Facebook, Instagram, or WhatsApp.
Why Use Discord App?
There are many reasons why many people prefer using the discord app. With all these advantages people get very comfortable. In this coming article, we are going to discuss the advantages of the discord app. How we can easily enjoy this app?
Let’s Dig Into The App:
• Create/ Join Servers:
Discord apps have many communities or groups which you can join or ev6yoi can also create one of those communities. You can create your own private community and can add your friends and families. Discord has many communities of your choice you can be part of anyone. You can see the activities of the people in your community or the community which you have joined.
• Communication During Online Games:
While playing games online communication with other members or even opposing teams is very compulsory. Without communication, you can’t enjoy your game, and the in-built tools which are available for communication purposes won’t work properly because of the huge traffic of users or players on the game at that time. In this hard situation, Discord comes. The main purpose of this app is communication. You can text your members or even voice call them or video chatting. on this app, any communication means can be found. This app is like a skype or TeamSpeak app.
Essentially discord is the perfect way of staying in contact with your dear ones. It’s like a normal social media app through which you can do texting, and call each other or anyone who is on that platform. Just like skype and TeamSpeak, you can do voice calling, video chats, or simply normal conversations.
There are many apps present in the market through which we can interact with other people instantly. Discord provides you with a separate chat box in which you can talk in private and also share files and documents whatever your need.
One of the exciting features is communication with other players. But it also demands strict rules and regulations. All the members or people who are chatting have to avoid spamming and if they don’t do this discord has the authority to ban that user immediately.
Sometimes it happens that you ban someone accidentally or with a purpose. But now you want to unban them and do the chatting with them again. For this, you have to unban them and in this upcoming section of the article, we are going to share with you how you can unban someone while using any device on this discord app.
Discord Server Rules:
Today we are going to talk about the rules that we can put in a server. We have created for reasons such as professional or for entertainment and fun.
Why Put Rules In Servers?
It is important to know that the implementation of rules is very important because they allow us to ensure a good functional service and high-quality conversations in terms of language. But also to create links, whether they are professional links for work or friendly links (between friends, etc.).
But we should not forget the main reason for the rules, they help new members to find their way around more easily and also reduce the number of channels to go through because in most cases. The rules are in a single area.
Thanks to this, not only the administrators but also the other users can report someone who does not respect the rules, via this these rules give us a solution to a very annoying problem of spam in the different communication channels.
By avoiding this, there will be less disorder and chaos on the servers, because members will know what they can and cannot do.
So We Can Say That With The Rules We Are Creating A New World With Its Own Values:
How To Set Up Rules On Our Server/Channel
In the following article, we will first see how to set up rules on our server/channel, then we will study the most common and effective rules, and finally analyze them. How we can force users to approve these rules and follow them?
As we said before, creating a new channel is much better, so access is simpler and easier for the new members.
So, to do this, we will first create this channel that we will preferably call “Rules”, we put it in front by dragging it up. Then we need to right-click and select “Edit Channel”, all that’s left is to go to the “Permissions” tab and disable the following options:
– Send messages in threads
– Send messages
By deactivating these options, no one will be able to publish anything on this channel. So it will remain clean and easy to read.
Once all this is done, we have to write or insert the rules we have defined beforehand so that everyone can see and follow them. Or, as most people do, we can directly copy and paste a template that has been provided to us.
List of Rules
Just after, we will find a list of rules, which we have made with care. These common rules will cover most situations and can be applied to any type of server because servers also have categories and/or themes.
Rule No 1:
No dangerous or inappropriate content, we are in a collective server. So access to discussions of content such as images, and videos that contain adult or dangerous content is strictly prohibited.
Rule No 2:
Spam ban, indeed, it is very annoying to receive small messages (emotes, etc.). And in large quantities in a very short time, this is to make the reading of the channel complicated and not let users participate in different discussions. This applies to all channels and all types of spam.
Rule No 3:
Be respectful and kind, you have to show respect to all members of the server. Indeed, on the server’s discords we can find many young people for that, we have prohibited harassment and intimidation, and the consequences of his actions will be either a mute or expulsion from the group. It is therefore mandatory to remain welcoming, civilized, and respectful.
Rule No 4:
No abusive profiles, and yes for most this may seem logical, but this is not the case for everyone, so to be a little clearer on this rule, there should be no images, profile names containing adult or inappropriate content, or empty names.
Rule No 5:
Respect for the decisions of the moderators, you should know that on a server we have one or more moderators who have the privilege to ban and exclude annoying users in a discretionary way, but they can also be nicer by putting them on mute. Of course, mistakes can happen, if you get kicked out of a server without having violated the rules we are mentioning, you should contact the administrator.
Rule No 6:
Forbidden advertisements, users coming to advertise their brands, services, or even their servers, are not tolerated (without exceptional authorization), we also take into account the advertisements in the channel, but also in private.
Rule No 7:
And Contacting staff members for questions, first of all, you should know that contacting a staff member without any reason is prohibited. If you have misunderstood one or more of the rules we have discussed above, it is best to contact the staff. If you are going to do an action, which you don’t know whether it is allowed or not, you should wait for the answer from a moderator. This is more prudent and avoids you to take risks.
How To Force People To Respect And Follow The Rules?
Now We Will See How To Make People Respect And Follow The Rules:
For this, we will have to make sure that all the members of the server have seen and read the rules. It’s quite simple because everything is done at the level of “Server Settings”. In fact, we must activate the “Community Settings” feature of our server, and then in the “Community” option we will click on “Configure member filtering”.
We only have to click on “Server rules” and as it is quite complicated to create rules on this option, we can indicate that our rules are in the channel (give the name of the channel where there are rules).
Thanks to this, any new user who wants to send a message, communicate or react on the server will first have to accept the rules.
So we have understood how important the creation of a rules channel or even just the creation of rules can be for the well-being of our server.
We have mentioned a lot of rules, but you should know that these are not the only rules, there are many more, but as always it’s up to you to decide how you want to beautify your server.
