This post will explain what a Discord server is, how to use it and why I have created one.
I first heard about discord during a What The Headcrab! episode. A mod announced that they were going to be using one to publish minor updates and connect with their fans. I suggested it was a strange move considering ModDB provides the perfect place for players to keep up to date with their favourite in-development mods.
That was until I actually used one and now I can see how useful it can be.
So, what is it? Well, Discord is the name of the development group that created it. Just like Twitter, Skype etc, it’s a brand name. Now, the word server is a little misleading, because it is not like a server in the typical sense. In this case, a server is more a reserved space. Think of it like a shopping mall/centre. That shopping mall is just for whoever creates it and whoever they invite.
