Yes, that's a very good idea. It's how I've got my own server set up - the invite link sends yo to #lobby, but that's the only thing you can see until you're assigned a role.

2018-01-06 16:07:17 UTC  

as a precaution. you need mods for it, or there are bot solutions which i am not familiar with.

2018-01-06 16:08:51 UTC  

Yeah, the bot solutions are nice, but they're usually pretty complicated to set up

2018-01-06 16:09:55 UTC  

I'm also partial to the IRC role system of Everyone < Voice < Halfop < Op(erator) < Admin

2018-01-06 16:10:03 UTC  

keeps things simple for roles

2018-01-06 16:11:34 UTC  

isnt there some term for *the followers of tim pool* - acolytes of pool, pooligans... something? πŸ˜‰

2018-01-06 16:11:46 UTC  

None that I'm aware of

2018-01-06 16:11:59 UTC

I think Pooligans has a better ring to it

2018-01-06 16:25:17 UTC  

sweet and tender pooligans

2018-01-06 16:25:35 UTC  

Could maybe do Timcasters

2018-01-06 16:25:56 UTC  

dunno, that may be too close to Timcast

2018-01-06 16:26:03 UTC  

could cause confusion

2018-01-06 16:26:14 UTC  

No ghey clan tags plox. πŸ˜›

2018-01-06 16:26:33 UTC  

Timcasters, s1ck

2018-01-06 16:31:00 UTC  

yea but pooligan sounds like a portmanteau of poo and hooligan

2018-01-06 16:31:32 UTC  

It could also be a portmanteau of pool and hooligan, which is how I read it until you said that

2018-01-06 16:32:48 UTC  

well the poo-part IS unfortunate, didnt catch that πŸ˜‰

2018-01-06 16:33:33 UTC  

how about "warriors of the frozen wastes"

2018-01-06 16:34:13 UTC  

:-/ It's a tad long...

2018-01-06 16:34:41 UTC  

@Timcast What's the purpose of this server? Just a hub for discussions? No image boards or?

2018-01-06 16:35:12 UTC  

news discussion stories and general conversation

2018-01-06 16:35:26 UTC  

Knights of Pool

2018-01-06 16:35:29 UTC  

:p

2018-01-06 16:36:00 UTC  

@SmallPrice I think you're assuming honor where there may not be any. Or at least, I know I don't have that much honor.

2018-01-06 16:36:14 UTC  

well its a bit presumptious yes

@Timcast Your server is growing fast enough that you may want to consider creating a role to give to users that you would trust in helping to manage the server and the people on it, especially given how often you typically travel. It would suck to spend X hours on a flight and get to your hotel/hostel, log on to Discord, and find that while you were out, a troll got onto the server and managed to invite a bunch of their troll buddies, but nobody could get rid of them.

2018-01-06 16:52:58 UTC  

There are some bots you could look into getting in here that have automated protections for that as well, though

2018-01-06 16:55:21 UTC  

@Revan Considering if this server becomes as big as other discord servers such as politics and so on that would actually be a must. Having too many people posting stuff on one board will create a wall of text which nobody really want's to scroll through.
