Flaming and Intolerance on the Discord server
« on: March 11, 2021, 10:28:39 pm »
 So, I normally just kinda try to ignore this, but lately all I ever see out of the discord is political arguments, namecalling, and a generally sour atmosphere that scares new users off.

   Making matters worse, some users have taken it upon themselves to approach every single new join and warn them away from the server for it, claiming that anyone who leaves right away "isn't worth having around anyways".

  Supposedly, the admin for the server simply up and disappeared? This is a bad light on the compendium community - is there *anything* that can be done about it? I'll gladly help moderate.

I believe V_Translanka set up the discord on one of his quick and random visits. I will reach out to him.

I wish I had the time and energy for Discord, if so I'd moderate there as well. But I honestly don't think I can add that to my plate.

EDIT: I've emailed V requesting that we add some admins. We'll see what he says and how long he takes to respond.

Hm? So things have not calmed down over there...?

Unfortunately not. I've asked everyone to calm down for a bit and things seem slightly better. Between ThatGuy, Meridian, and a few others, I honestly think half of it is just trolling for the sake of making each other mad.

I still haven't heard back from V, though. I've reached out here (which likely goes to his personal email) and on Discord. Not sure what to do if he doesn't respond in a timely manner.

The Compendium long held an absolute stance of intolerance towards fascism, excessive religiosity, sexism, right-wing misinformation etc. to the point we literally kneecapped the community at times to run those worthless fucks off. Lord J Esq can back me up there.

Going to fuck around and turn people into the old Dre. Let me know if V doesn't reply. The Compendium remains Authleft, baby.

Since V is the only one with authority there, we may need to ditch that as the official compendium discord.

Still nothing. I was planning on reaching out to Discord authorities to see if we can get things turned over, but let me know what else you have in mind.

So V still hasn't responded and I reached out to Discord support. Unfortunately, we have less than 100 members, which really puts us in a bind. We aren't able to take the Discord channel back from V, and I don't like the idea of having to create an entirely new channel.

Hey there,

Clyde, Discord Support Bot here, sending you an automated message here first before I escalate you to one of our support specialists since I noticed you were writing in about a Server Ownership Transfer!

Sadly, based on the information you provided, our support team won't be able to transfer ownership as the server does not meet our ownership transfer requirements.

What are the Requirements?
We generally do not interfere with individual server management, and we can currently only assist with server ownership transfers that meet these requirements:
1) The server must be a public server that has more than 100 members in it
2) The server owner hasn't accessed their account for at least a month
3) The new owner is a current moderator or admin on the server.
Note: If the prior owner was banned, this could also result in the denial of a transfer.

Possible Alternatives?
If you would like to continue to manage your server's community further, we recommend creating a new server (or using a server template from the Server Settings), and generating a new invite link and sharing this invite within the old server. This way everyone that is currently active in the old server can use that invite link to join the new server.

I apologize once again for all the hassle and inconvenience, but if you have any other questions or need further clarification, donít hesitate to respond back here so one of our team members can help!

Cheers,
Clyde, Discord Support Bot

EDIT: I hadn't reached out to V via xbox messenger yet and just did so as a final option.

I was going to suggest having TheMage sign up 40 more times, but then I realized we don't meet points 2 or 3 either. V hasn't responded, but his account is currently listed as online, and we have no other current moderators or admins.

Hopefully Xbox messenger works.

I'll grab the Epoch and make sure someone else has mod/admin status when the server is created. Now someone needs to reach out to V and tell him to stop logging in...

Wait, we're back where we started.

Any update, Boo?

V has not responded to myself or Zeality, the punk. We've tried the Compendium, on Xbox, email, and Discord. At this point he literally has to be ignoring us on purpose. Very frustrating.

Kids these days! V, get off my lawn!

Not a helpful development, unfortunately. :/

things have quieted down for the time being. it was really ridiculous in there for awhile. admittedly I got my hands dirty, mostly because certain individuals exhausted my patience. there may have been provocative posts in there, but the response to them was disproportionate. all in all, some things can't be ironed out without moderation. thanks for intervening.

So... did they got to pass over channel ownership or so...?
