Discord Chat Link & FAQs
« on: July 23, 2021, 1945 UTC »
Current Discord invite link: discord.gg/hfunderground


Hey guys. As you know, our AWESOME and action-packed chat is now on Discord. In coming days I will post information that may be helpful to you. But generally getting on Discord is really easy!

You MUST join with a Discord account that has a verified email address and you will be required to post a message in the welcome channel explaining your interest in radio. A moderator will subsequently approve access to the rest of the server.

You can use Discord in a browser, or download the desktop app. There are also mobile apps for iPhone and Android, and they were awesome. I prefer the desktop app on my PC because I think it offers a slightly richer experience. But the browser site is almost exactly the same. I also use the iPhone app, since that's the phone I have. The official Discord download site is here:

https://discord.com/download

Use this invitation to join the chat: https://discord.gg/hfunderground

Use it only once to sign up. After that, just go directly to https://discord.com/

Questions about how to get started with Discord? Please read this getting started guide:

TERMS OF USE

The radio related channels should be kept free of obscene material. That includes posts, images and other content. The non-radio related channels have looser rules but still we do not want gratuitously obscene content there either. Use good judgement, and imagine your mom or kids lurking in the channels.

Targeted, unearned harassment of users, both in chat and also over the air, may result in temporary or permanent bans. I get that pirate radio often has long running, light hearted feuds, inside jokes, and so forth. We know what harassment is though and will take action.

Racist material and material targeting specific groups of people for derision (sexual orientation, disabilities, etc) will also BE REMOVED and you may likewise face a temporary or permanent ban.

Accounts that remain idle for long periods of time or never post may be kicked from the server. Duplicate usernames (beerus1, beerus2) may also be removed from the channel. Please talk to a moderator if you have a legitimate need for duplicate accounts.

Not going to write a tome. I'll add to this more if I have to use. Use yer brain.

September 20, 2021: Email verification has been enabled on the server. You must join the server using a Discord account with a verified email address. We cannot see your email address, this is held privately by Discord and is completely unavailable to us, so you do not need to be concerned about your privacy.

IF for some reason you joined the channel before this was enabled, AND you do NOT have a verified address, you will need to verify your address with Discord. You cannot post until that is done. We do not control this process, read their docs. If your verification email was set incorrectly when you set up your account, and you cannot retrieve the confirmation the email, your only option is to create a new Discord account with a verifiable email address and rejoin the server. DO NOT DM admins if you have a problem with the process; there is literally nothing at all that we can do about it. Your verified email is between you and Discord.
