Hey folks, if you haven't noticed yet, we replaced our website chat with the discord chat service and it's been going quite well! The chat room is quite active and engagement has gone up quite a lot! There's almost always someone present to chat with and answer questions, and with the discord mobile app, you can chat during your travels as well!

So, with StP being such a huge project and the fact that I am only one person, I am looking for someone that would like to work with our Discord chat server to make it a more fun, interactive, and interesting place! I'm seeking someone that would be interested in being an admin in addition to seeking out new bots and adding new features to the channel. This would include adding features like an welcome messages, an experience system, music bots, new text/voice chat rooms, or anything else that might be useful to the StP community or just fun to implement in general.

Experience in integrating bots and editing roles and user/bot permissions would be preferred, although if you're looking for a server to experiment with before starting your own, this might be a good fit as well. If you're willing to put in the time to learn what needs to be done, the previous experience may be unnecessary. It's not as complicated as website design (no coding necessary) but an ability to understand how roles and permissions work in discord will be helpful.

If you're interested, check out our current setup by clicking on the chat link in the main navigation and replying here. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide!

I used to develop Discord bots, so I know how Discord's permission and role system works.

Depending on if you can host a bot I would be willing to write you one to have features you want.

I really need an avatar

well that's a great offer, thank you. i guess what we need first though is to decide what the bot would do (in terms of needed features) before making it, since otherwise we're kinda putting the cart before the horse :)

i would like to ideally create an xp system where users get xp every time someone else reacts to their post with an emoji (not for just posting). i haven't found a bot that does this yet, but here are some interesting ones that might be worth setting up for our discord:

https://mee6.xyz/ (already using this for some functions)
https://tatsumaki.xyz/

also, if anyone would be interested in writing a very simple guide to discord or using some of the bot functions, please let me know. ideally we will add this to the introduction PM the bot sends new users when they join the discord server.

I recommend the Reaction Role Bot.
https://discordbots.org/bot/reaction-role

Allows users to add themselves to certain roles. This can be arbitrary titles and such.
It can also be used to disable @everyone for users that wish to opt out of that.
