Ex-Christian Chat Room on Discord

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I have created a chat channel for us using Discord. It is a free app and very functional. Being the creator (God) I am owner of the channel and sole admin at the moment, and my first time admin'ing a chat room so your patience is appreciated. If you have any queries, stuff needs fixing please give me a PM. As we pick up on use and figure things out we will get some mods appointed from different time zones around the world. This will give us around the clock moderation which hopefully we won’t need to use.

 

Below is some brief instructions for those not familiar with Discord. Below that are some guidelines for use and basic rules to make chat pleasant for all involved.

 

Note: Please use your Ex-C name if possible so we can verify users. If you don’t use your Ex-C name please post below what your Discord name is. Eg

Ex-C: John Jones,

Discord: Red Rover

 

Instructions to Join

 

1) Click on the link below. If you are already have a discord account you will be taken to our channel. If not you’ll be taken to the following screens:

4) Discord will take you to your account. You may have to verify your account by clicking a link in your registered email. Once signed in using the link provided our channel, called Ex-Christian should load in the menu to the left. I used our familiar Ex icon (Hope that’s ok with Webdave)

Guidelines:

Currently we have several rooms:

The Lounge which is for our general chit chat.

Serious discussion which is for those wanting to undertake a conversation without the general chit chat around disturbing it.

Politics - rather self explanatory

Cooking - again self explanatory

Personal_and_relationships - for discussing those personal issues away from the general chit chat. This room is locked so only ex-c members on Discord can see it

Messing_with_Eggplants - All things kinky. I wouldn't go into here if you are a puritan :D

 

Rules (Subject to change and updating as the channel evolves)

1)      Be polite and respectful at all times. Pretty much all conversation is permitted, however if a member asks you to stop talking about a subject you will cease and desist immediately.

2)      Ex-C Christian True Believer (TM) members are welcome however no proselytizing. If you wish to carry out a serious discussion as we would in the lion’s den and members are willing that is fine, but preaching about Jesus coming to die for our sins will cop you an instant ban…. Well a ban as soon as I can act on a complaint.

3)      EVERYTHING is recorded. Anyone can see whatever you type. Be wise.

4)      Pretending to be someone you are not will cop an instant ban

5) During the course of chatting a member may divulge private details about themselves including names, situations, places etc. You may not discuss these with anyone else without the express permission of said member. Even if you think something is common knowledge, check first. Just because you know someone's name doesn't mean you should use that name when not conversing privately.

 

Users

We have several user types for ease of admin management and come with their names color coded:

Administrator: Logical Fallacy: God of Ex-C chat. Anyone displeasing me will be smitten.... and not in a good way. I in know way exhibit any of the characteristics of a certain biblical god :D

Moderator: Members who can delete posts, kick users etc. Currently Travi is our only mod, and with everyone being very well behaved its likely to stay like that for the foreseeable future.

Ex-C Members - these are verified Ex-Christian members. They have access to all rooms

Friends - People who are not Ex-C members but have proven to be friendly and welcome in chat

Christians - people who profess to be Christians.

 

 

Thank you and let’s make Ex-Christian a great place to chill out with fellow Ex-C’s!

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



Pinned for easy access for the members of Ex-c! Have fun everyone!

Hi all

Apologies, at the moment there are some issues and it's not letting us post. I'm looking into the issue whether it's us or Discord.

Hi all

 

Just letting all know that we are planning on a meetup this Friday/Saturday and are going to use Voice chat! Yes, you'll get to hear my sexy Kiwi accent. :D

 

It's kicking off at 1am GMT 23rd December. To find out your local time you simply add or subtract your time offset.

 

Example New Zealand is +13 GMT which means for me it will be 2pm Saturday 23rd December.

 

See here for a GMT converter - I've included some major centres https://savvytime.com/converter/gmt-to-nzdt-canada-vancouver-ny-new-york-city-ca-los-angeles/dec-23-2017/1am

 

See, or rather hear you there!

Well our first voice chat went well. Went on for about 2 hours. I think at one stage there were 8 of us in there. We are planning another in a few weeks. We'd love to see some new people or even those who are on the chat but don't regularly participate. It's a great way to get to know people. 

 

A reminder that Christians are welcome but no proselytizing.

It's kicking off at 2am GMT Saturday 17 February. To find out your local time you simply add or subtract your time offset.

 

Example New Zealand is +13 GMT which means for me it will be 3pm Saturday 17 February. For you folk stuck in the past it will be Friday.
