Discord Roles and Channels

From Equestria at War Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


Server icon

The Equestria at War mod has its own discord server, which provides opportunities for comfortable communication for both ordinary inhabitants and players in the modification, and its developers. You can go to the discord server from the modification page on Steam, a group on VKontakte, a community on Reddit, or go to this invite: PetZvZk .

The main language of communication on the server is English, however, most channels do not have a mandatory restriction, and there is also a separate category of channels for communication in Russian (and other Cyrillic languages) and a separate channel for communication in any language.

Verification

The first thing you may encounter upon entering the server is the AltDefender [1] bot verification system installed to protect the server from raider and spam attacks. The bot sends a unique link to the private messages of the newly arrived participant, which is available within half an hour from the moment of sending. To pass verification, you must verify with AltDentifier's system using your Xbox , Twitter , Steam , Overwatch , Reddit or Youtube account .

Verification may not be required if you have been a Discord user for a long time. But in any case, the server is set to a security level that requires the discord account to have a verified email. All verified participants are assigned the «Pones Pones role.png» role .

Rules

The server rules are contained in the #server-rules channel , and are provided in Russian and English:

  1. @Comissar's have the authority to enforce specific rules and make specific decisions at their discretion when they feel it is in the best interest of the discord server and its users at large. However, they are fully accountable for their actions when they exercise this privilege.
  2. The @Comissar's decisions are final. If you have a further issue with one then you can message any @Major except Scroup. However, arguing with them over any decision will likely accomplish nothing and is moderately annoying.
  3. Rules function AS INTENDED. Just because you bend the wording of a rule into a pretzel and don't break the specific RAW (Rule As Written) does not mean you didn't break the RAI (Rule As Intended). Rules can be subject to interpretation and if the @Major's or @Comissar believes you broke a rule as it is intendedto function, you can expect the same consequences.
  4. Breaking Discord Terms of Service will lead to immediate ban. Do not organize, participate in, or encourage harassment of others. Do not organize, promote, or coordinate servers around hate speech. Do not evade user blocks or server bans. Do not make threats of violence or threaten to harm others. Do not send others viruses or malware.
  5. NSFW Content is forbidden. This includes, but is not limited to, NSFW Images, content that depicts gross acts of violence, murder, execution, torture and similar, or explicit erotic content, including links to such content in any of the channels, suggestive images and behaviour, explicit/erotic commentary and conversations.
  6. No Spamming. Spamming is defined as posting the same thing multiple times in a short period of time. It is okay to post similar things in succession if, and only if, it is related to the conversation topic at hand and does not break any of the Server Rules.
  7. Holocaust and genocide jokes, denial, or support, ironic or not; racial, ethnic, religious, gender, and identity attacks; promotion of terrorism; calls to violence; and physical threats are strictly forbidden.
  8. Keep appropriate discussion in the appropriate channel, #eaw-discussions is for mod related discussion. #civil-discussions channels are for any general off-topic discussion/serious conversation; #the memes of production is for related shitposting, prequel memes, or actually decent memes. #playing-hoi4 is for organizing and discussing Hearts of Iron IV Multiplayer games. #british-minecraft and #motherland-minecraft are for organizing and discussing Minecraft games. Any other channel should be self-explanatory, use common sense. In addition, if you ping the @Gamer or @Minecrafter Role without a valid reason you may lose the ability to communicate in said channels.
  9. Any language is allowed to be spoken in a channel, unless a specific language is stated in the channel description – in those channels you can still speak in other languages, with limits. Avoid holding longer conversations in non-primary language there, and please do not ask users to leave unless a longer conversation happens.
  10. Discussing and sharing political content, including but not limited to, economic theories, religion, ideologies, and identity politics are banned.
  11. Posting development leaks from unreleased versions of Equestria at War anywhere, including other Discord servers will be met with an instant permanent ban without any warning.
  12. Roleplay is banned. Completely.
  13. Ban or mute evasion is strictly prohibited and will result in a permanent ban.
  14. Non-constructive criticism of other mods is not allowed.
  15. Advertising servers, unrelated to EaW, is not allowed, unless permitted by @Major's.
  16. Don't DM anyone from the server without their permission. If you wish to report a rule you may DM any of the @Comissar's. DMing someone against their will in violation of Rule 4 will result in an immediate ban.
  17. Temporary rules supersede Core rules. Certain channels may have their own specific rules. Refer to their pins or descriptions. Those rules have the same weight as the general server rules.
