Community Safety Concerns & Discord: II

Recently there have been some uses of our platform (namely the Discord server) by a banned party to DM members of the community some less than exciting things. We take this very seriously as no one should be harassed this way through Hollowworld with real life threats by any player - banned or unbanned. In order to take immediate action, we have decided to remove the permanent link to the Discord server. In its place, mentors will be sending newly whitelisted players temporary invitations, and existing members of the community will receive a link via making a support ticket on the forums. This is hopefully only temporary until an integration between the forums and the Discord server is created. If you're still worried about receiving any unwanted messages, setting your Discord account to only accept DMs from players you share a server with is recommended, and if you've already received any unwanted messages please report them to Discord itself.

Thank you for your understanding and willingness to help us deal with this issue. If there are any questions feel free to ask below or create a conversation with the staff team.

Selling invite links, 10$ a pop.


But in all seriousness, perhaps a perma link broadcasted in a chat announcement that periodically cycles through might work. The ones that say, "dont push afk people into water", "no orphan assassins", etc.

Like an on-server permalink.

I think the point is so people don't get to use links they weren't specifically given, so that people who aren't members of the community can't join.

If you ask for a link and are already on the server, they'll ask why.

If you ask for a link and someone else who's not supposed to have a link, they'll know.

If you leave at some point and want back in, you can just ask and staff will make you a link. It's just two clicks.

I would suggest, though, that a permanent link continues to exist but only allows access to the New Player Questions channel. That way, people who are in the application process can still ask whatever they need to, without having to make a whole new thread.
