Discord

If you want to join the Discord server, someone can send you an invite link which has a secret code in. It's a great way of voice chatting with others during games and keeping touch with people outside of the games. It is also used to organise events. We recommend that you get the Discord app on your phone as well as your PC. Alternatively, Discord can be used within a modern browser without the need to even install anything at all (but it lacks certain cool features that the app has, such as screen sharing)!

Notifications

When you first join the server, the default settings are for you to receive notifications whenever anyone posts a message in any of the text channels. You will almost definitely want to change this for the #music-control channel (used for controlling the music bot) and you may want to change this for other channels too. Here is how…

Desktop

  1. Make sure you have the “Toot Police” server selected on the left hand side (the triple heart logo)
  2. Right click the text channel (they have a “#” icon, e.g. #music-control)
  3. Click “Notification Settings” and click “Only @mentions” so that you will be only notified if someone specifically tags you or a role that you have
  4. Repeat for any other channels that you're not that interested in

Mobile

  1. Swipe a finger across from the left side of the screen to reveal the server and channel list
  2. Touch the “Toot Police” server icon (the triple heart logo) if it's not selected already
  3. Hold your finger down on the text channel (they have a “#” icon, e.g. #music-control)
  4. Touch “Notification Settings”
  5. Touch “Only @mentions” so that you will be only notified if someone specifically tags you or a role that you have
  6. Repeat for any other channels that you're not that interested in

Muting

You can also “mute” a channel or the entire TooT server. This is different to changing the notification settings as it also prevents unread indicators and also it can be done for a temporary period of time. A temporary mute is often useful if there's an active conversation going on that you're not particularly interested in or if you just don't want to be disturbed by Discord for a while.
