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)!
Discord allows you to set your nickname on a per-server basis. Please ensure that the nickname you have on the TooT server is something that allows others to recognise you from your name(s) in the game(s) that you play with us. Here's how to change your nickname for the TooT server only:
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…
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.
