Title: VATCAN Discord Server - Public release
Post by: Travis Chan on April 08, 2020, 12:11:25 AM
VATCAN has been testing a Discord server for some time with our staff members and we're now ready to open it to our controlling VATCAN members!

Some important notes about this server:

To start using Discord follow these steps:

1) Download and setup the app from https://discordapp.com/download. The app is available for most popular OS's.
2) Connect your VATSIM CID to Discord by modifying your profile in the vatcan.ca website My VATCAN>Profile or clicking here: https://www.vatcan.ca/my/profile. (You can also set your email subscription preferences here!)
3) Click the blue Join Discord button to start linking your CID to Discord.
4) Click the Discord Accept Invite button to the VATCAN Discord server.
5) In the VATCAN Discord server, go to the channel #verification by clicking on the channel name. If you don't see the channel initially after logging in, it should become visible within 5 minutes.
6) To start the verification process type "-verify" (without the quotation marks). The verification process will take a few minutes to complete so please be patient.
7) Enjoy Discord!

Phil and I want to thank all the FIR staff members who tested the server and give a special thanks to Jeff McMillan and Jordan Jolenaar that helped create and setup the server.

Thanks for setting this up, guys.

For anyone else who sees this, I don't know if this was a permissions issue that was fixed, or if the bot controls this, but it took a minute or two for the verification channel to appear for me, just FYI.

for some reason I cannot join my existing Discord account.  I keeps asking for my email and then telling me its already claimed.  Any ideas?
