Discord is a free text, voice, and video chat medium. The application can be used from within the web browser or downloaded, with the link for both being on the homepage of its website: discord.com. It is available for several operating systems, and can be accessed via a web-app on certain browsers, which can be seen in the table below.

To receive an invite to The Garry's Mod Wiki Discord, simply follow this link: discord.gg/Fqw36MpDMs.

Information[edit source]

The typical Discord interface.

The server is open to all, and it can be used to discuss the game, the wiki, or anything else. We're a laid-back community that tries not to take ourselves or anything too seriously, so come hang out with us!

Rules[edit source]

  1. Discussion of activities that break the Rules of Steam is not permitted.
  2. Relevant wiki policies apply, such as:
  3. All players who are using the chat are to be treated fairly and equally and are expected to abide by the chat rules, regardless of their role or status on the wiki.
  4. Profanity is allowed in the chat; however, use of derogatory or discriminatory language and use of profanity in personal attacks targeted at other chat users is not acceptable. Additionally, you may be asked to stop if your use of profanity is excessive.
  5. No spamming or advertising.
  6. Players should keep conversations mature and cool-headed. Please be respectful of others when discussing controversial topics such as politics and religion and remember that the chat is made up of people from a range of backgrounds and cultures.
  7. Please keep discussion on topic for the channel that you are using. There is a list of channels and their usage below.
  8. If another user asks you to stop a discussion – e.g., because it is becoming offensive/inflammatory or making them uncomfortable – then please do so. Players may @ admin(s) or contact an admin via DM to ask them to intervene if they are uncomfortable with a discussion that is taking place in the chat.

Dealing with rule breakers[edit source]

  • Users who break the rules may be given one or more warnings at the discretion of an admin.
  • Offending users may have their roles removed (if they have any), their ability to use text and/or voice chat in any/all channels removed, or may outright banned from the server temporarily or permanently, at the discretion of the administrators.
  • More serious breaches of the rules or ignoring warnings may result in a user being kicked or banned from the chat.
  • If you believe a user has behaved inappropriately without being punished, contact a clan admin, providing links to or screenshots of incidents if possible.
  • Players who are banned are unable to rejoin the server. See here for a list of users who are currently banned from Discord.
  • If you are currently banned and wish to appeal your ban, please see the instructions here.

Channels[edit source]

Channels may be renamed, added, or removed at any time. This list is accurate as of 10 March 2021 (UTC).

  • #welcome - Everyone that uses the invitation link above arrives here. Rule information is posted here, and only administrators can post. Players can also react to the message with the thumbs up emote to grant the "notifs-events" role. This will grant notifications of upcoming Events Team events.

Roles[edit source]

Much like channels, roles may be renamed on the fly. Currently, they are generally given out ad hoc, so if you feel you need one, talk to one of the @wiki bureaucrats or @wiki admins.

Two-factor authentication can be used on Discord. It is required to be enabled on your account to use most permissions of @wiki bureaucrats and @wiki admins, though it is recommended that everyone enable it.
