(Note: type 'uwu I <3 Nick Walton' when you join if you came here from AI Dungeon and want to access the channel for you and the rest of your kind)

https://discord.gg/jzyDE47 Now we have a place like the forum that is not the forum. But please continue to be kind to your forum and visit it regularly, it gets lonely. The idea is that it is more writing and storygame focused than Zag's Discord and less full of obnoxious idiocy than Ford's. Feels like a niche we've been missing. (12/10/19 edit: LOL Ford's server has been dead for over a year and no one even remembers who Zag is!) THE RULES, updated 11/29/18 1.) You must give the name of your CYS account upon entry. 2.) Do not be too annoying. 3.) Do not be too easily annoyed. 4.) Writing and storygame discussion takes priority over your shitposting. 5.) DO NOT SAY 'OWO' 6.) Anything that would get you banned on CYS will get you banned here. 7.) Some things that would not get you banned in CYS can also get you banned here. Also, if you're just some random reject from the fucktard factory and the thought of "trolling" us gets your peepee hard, go ahead I guess, no one objects to another ball of yarn to bat around. But please at least try to be entertaining about it, there have been nothing but humorless and uncreative faggots lately and this is still a writing site at the end of the day.

Looking like a serious set up so far. yes

There are two paths for a discord chat server focused around writing (been tried before):

1) It will die out very very quickly regardless of the effort put into it. In fact, the more effort put into it the faster it will die.
2) All channels will be excessively unused and dead except for a single general chat and or lounge-like channel.

Bonus points for getting over 5 people actually consistently talk about writing and stuff.

Bonus points for not deleting any channel and instead sticking them in large catagories as used/unused.

I have an IRC channel with at least ten people who consistently talk about writing. I don't think it's as hard as you make it out to be when everyone who would be in there is coming from a writing site.

Literally anyone who has ever used discord for anything will tell you about the two glaring rookie mistakes made so far:

1) there are more channels than members
2) You have 6 bots already. 1 bot per 10 members is a good ratio to shoot for, and max out at 5 or 6 bots with a 100+ person server.

You have 6 bots and a billion more channels than necessary. Anyone who has used discord for any amount of time or tried to make a server will tell you the exact same things. When you start a server it's hard to not make a channel for everything but until you have an active group of people doing shit consistently on the server you may as well just have 2 channels max and a single bot. I guarantee 50% of the current channel list will be 0 content and 90% will be abandoned within a year.

The audience you're aiming for is not the audience available.

No you're actually wrong, I know most of the people who will be in there already and I know the kinds of things they like to talk about to a degree that it will annoy me and others. It's just like owning pets, you know from the start they'll need a place to shit.

I've already said I'm going to prune the bots once I mess around with their commands and figure out which ones are actually necessary.

But I said it in there and of course you're banned so how could you know.

Just rereading this and enjoying how wrong Ford was. I've proven the Discord can sustain ~60 active, mostly non-obnoxious people for over a year. Which now leaves me with the question of, do we even want/need this many? And what exactly have most of them done for the site lately? Makes u think

Just a little about the channel set up, as certain salty naysayers have expressed doubts. However obviously driven by petty jealously such concerns are, I want to lay them to rest.

Besides the main chat, we have:

1.) A writing channel for in depth discussion or drawing attention to threads and storygames.

2.) Scripting and advanced editor help. This is the only one we could easily do without, but just included for completion's sake and because if someone needs a lot of handholding it would add clutter to the writing channel.

3.) Tabletop and board games chat. This is frequently a popular topic in the Villain's Lair.

4.) Playing games with bots. This is the most popular channel so far. In fact, it seems people love the bots I have heard so much negativity expressed towards.

5.) Food talk

6.) Animal pics. And we have multiple bots that will find and post them for us.

7.) A channel for playing with the music bot. It's very popular. Both the music bot and channel were added by request.

Those are the good channels. But the bad ones I'm never going to bother reading are just as necessary.

8.) A debate channel for Steve to have long pointless and obnoxious arguments in.

9.) A toilet to spew memes into

10.) General shitposting, bot spam and anime discussion.

11.) Interest checks and discussion for roleplaying stuff.

Most of these have seen activity today. If any turn out not to be needed I'll remove them, and if more are requested I'm willing to make them. It takes like, a second either way, and it's not a big deal at all to anyone rational.

I was thinking that through interacting with the community a bit in the discord server, I might slowly become more active on the site as well. I do however understand where you're coming from. The discord will serve as another distraction for those who are already active and/or productive on the site. Hopefully it balances out at the very least, and serves to be as useful as it is distracting.

A product of Chris, Sent, and Ebon goofing around in the Discord:

Sent: It's the distant year of 2005. In the deserted streets of New York, one minotaur cop has been kicked off the force with nothing but a gun a dream, and a thirst for vengeance.
Chris: Rex Cowington, once a loose cannon cop who didn't play by the rules, now hunted by cyborg zombie ninjas now that he isn't protected by the force.
Ebon: The only possible way for him to combat the constant tide of enemies was to form a group.
Sent: And it was a good job he wasn't alone: Enter Biff Tiddly, World Heavyweight Future Boxing Champion and King of the Fish Men
Chris: Biff and Rex were friends in the Academy before Biff left the force to become a Future Boxer, and now they were teamed up again to get revenge for the death of Rex's family at the hands of the cyborg zombie ninjas. But they weren't alone, enter
Ebon: Casablanca Cleo the African dinosaur. She was perhaps the deadliest of her kind weighing about 5 pounds on a good day.

And then we ran out of time.

2005: ZOO IN THE STREETS

Mr. Ace's challenge

2 years ago
Little dude has been really persistent so here we go. Ace/Jeff/Tyler/whatever the hell your name is this week, I did say I'd let you back in the Discord but I hope you understand the implication of 'Herculean task'. I'm not going to make it easy for you...so I hope you like homework.

I'll give you two options.

Option 1

Read all three of the following books:

The Good Earth, by Pearl S. Buck
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith
Watership Down, by Richard Adams

And use whatever your latest account is to write 1000 words about each and post threads in the Reading Corner. It shouldn't take 1000 words just to summarize the plots so be prepared to talk about the characters, how you felt about it all, or any of the other deep complex thoughts that I'm sure routinely go through your little preteen brain.

Or, you can try for Option 2:

Write a storygame of at least 15000 words that can maintain a rating of 5/8 or more. Not getting caught and banned while in the process is something I'm leaving you to your own devices on.


Neither of these are especially difficult, but I have confidence that you lack the dedication, discipline, and general intelligence levels to pull this off. I will be pleasantly surprised if you succeed and even cease to call you an idiot in places where you're likely to read it.

Who knows, maybe if you go above and beyond you can even impress Endmaster so much he lets you back onto the site. (wouldn't bet on it though...)

Why exactly was MrAce banned from CYS? Was it because of shitposting, or anything like that?

Thrice SHAMED as Mr. Ace, then he later turned out to be previously permabanned alt spammer jeffturtle.

Seems mostly reformed now at least in the spamming department, but
not my call to make and anyway being banned twice for unrelated reasons is a pretty strong indicator that that boy ain't right.

Maybe his case can be looked at by a judge again once he gets through puberty.

Although, he's in the same Discord with you and DarkPhoenix so you probably could've asked him yourself.

His ongoing shitposting/spamming aside, he managed to sneak in with Mr.Ace and still fucking failed spectacularly as far as writing is concerned.

On top of all that apparently he bitched about being banned, claiming that "JJJ would be rolling over in his grave" to see what the site "has become" and how things were better in the "old days" before "all of us" showed up.

The fucktard wasn't even AROUND during the so called "old days." and which old days is he talking about? Is he talking about when Bad Mod Kiel was around creating his own personal harem and Con Mod Seth was ripping off kids with Kickstarter scams?

Is he talking about before that when you had utter fucking chaos with fucktards like Honor4Ever and Ryder spamming dumb ass shit?

Or is he talking about even before that when you had Warrior Cat shit all over the goddamn site?

Obviously Jeff doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about when he's going on about the "good old days" that never really existed and as far as I'm concerned he's in DrkPhoenix territory.

And if he REALLY feels like things were better back then and the site sucks a lot now, why the hell does he want to be here still? (Yes I know, it's Hotel California syndrome common to internet forums)

So fuck Jeff, fuck Mr.Ace and fuck whatever other dumbshit alt he sneaks in under. He's banned whenever he pops up.

Mr. Ace's challenge

Yeah that rant he went on in Ford's Discord is really going to follow him a long time and bite him in the ass forever lol. Pretty sure he was barely even potty trained during the 'good old days' he speaks of so maybe that's why he didn't notice how shitty the forums used to be.

I believe even the most idiotic 11 year old is capable of growing up and joining society some day but in his case it will probably have to involve being better at not immediately giving away every alt.

Mr. Ace's challenge

2 years ago

He's grovelling to me in the Discord now. And while I appreciate a good grovel it's a little late especially after my above post.

My advice is he stays away from the site for a couple months, gets a different IP, lays extremely low to the point where nobody knows who the fuck he is. Like basically not speak and just write. Probably not a good idea for him to go blabbing on Discord who he is now either.

And its possible in a couple of years (Assuming we're all still alive) I might forget all about it even if I find out he's using an alt. (presumably a more productive one that didn't cause suspicion in the first place).

It's the best deal he's going to get.

Mr. Ace's challenge

2 years ago
He successfully rejoined as Mr. Ace before, he just needs to stop drawing all this attention to himself and do it again, minus the whole being an idiot who joins contests and fails at them part.

It's pretty difficult for anyone to even notice you exist as long as you're not posting but somehow none of these 'but I just want to write stories!' people never figure that out.

Mr. Ace's challenge

"Outhers"? I want to believe that that's just how they'd spell it in the UK. Kind of like the words "color" and "colour."

Also, what ever happened to 3J?

Also Saika was never banned, and 'Sakia' doesn't exist.

iirc he got a job as a dev (frontend or netsec I think) some ages ago and since he didnt like it he hung himself with a belt

Mr. Ace's challenge

2 years ago

"This site has turned to shit and I'm glad to be banned because there is no point in being on a site like this."

And then he proceeds to make a bunch of alts in futile attempts to sneak into the site. Of course those all failed spectacularly. RIP Jeff he couldn't sneak like Snake to get that S rank. "Jeff? Jeff talk to me! Jeff?! JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEFF!"

But really, maybe he'll lay low for a year or two, secretly working on his writing skills, and he'll pop back in and pull a me. Until then, we'll just keep making fun of him for being a bumbling fucktard.

Some guy with two commas for a name - kicked a couple of times by Deputy Chris and then banned by End for refusing to give name. Allegedly claimed his refusal to answer a simple question was 'trolling'.

Anon - totally on the level seeming username, did not give name, kicked by me.

Crusader - kicked by me, didn't give name and seemed kind of dumb

drooly - Entered with Dini in possession of furry avatar and claimed to be 'literally Ryder'. Banned by me. Oddly, no comment on any of this from Dini.

El_Fresco - banned by Endmaster, don't know the details but heard he was being a retard on the forum and got banned here also. Also he was Sharkworld so whatever.

Ford - banned by me for disrespecting the M, and for being Ford

Leora - Kicked by Deputy Ebon for sleeping with Ford and potential to suddenly be Ford.

MoreCowbell - kicked by deputy Ebon. His reputation preceded him.

Theseus - possibly Danaos? Kicked by me for not giving name. Seriously are people logging in and then IMMEDIATELY tabbing out to not look at the channel again for hours so that they can't see the question asked literally less than two minutes after their arrival? This seems very unlikely yet it keeps happening.

Tyler_Da_Typist - Banned by Endmaster. Easily identified Mr. Ace/Jeff Turtle alt.

Let me know if I missed any. And while I've been doing a lot of kicking I'm probably going to start moving to more bans if these people who just log in and say nothing continue to be nuisances adding nothing of value.

FOR FUTURE REFERENCE: IMMIGRATION PAPERS ARE MANDATORY.

Because the CYS discord is a place for cool kids only, it's also subject to extreme vetting. On the off chance that all the people we're kicking aren't just alts of the same people not admitting it, or they really are just newbies who jumped on the discord before jumping on the site, YOUR ACCOUNT NAME IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO STAY HERE. If you're not a member of CYS, then frankly what are you even doing? If you really do just join Discords and immediately stop reading them, or you happen to have the reaction time of an autistic slug, then at least do the reverse and post who you're supposed to be on Discord here and save us all the trouble.

I'm a little disturbed because this seems to be taking a cue from Ford's server of catgirl lolis but you worked so hard on this so I've changed my name to Procrastinating Faggot and yours to Trolling Faggot and we'll all just hang around and be faggots together awhile and see how it goes.

Steve had already changed his name back to just Steve by this morning even though the one you gave him was the most accurate of all, but I've fixed it now so he can't do that anymore.

Well there's an obvious difference, Ford calling everyone loli catgirls is obviously an indication of some sort of degenerate sexual fetish.

Calling everyone some sort of faggot on the other hand is just something funny to do.

Anyway, some of the faggot name changes you did are funnier (Malk = Depressed Faggot, etc.) I probably would have been a bit more accurate with some of the lesser members, but I was mildly preoccupied posting a trolling message at BGG as well.

Orange did one with "Peasant" when she got ownership of the server and pretty often I'll change everyones' names to some theme. IIRC There's been faggot, nigger, cunt, peasant, various types of italian food, abtract text art, blank names, <name>bot, farts of various smells, everyone named spaghetti and one person named mom, and probably more I can't remember off the top of my head. I guess I should go about changing them again except killa will always be the best catgirl loli.

Edit:: Song lyrics wherein we would try to get people to put a message in chat and all the names would line up to make a song

Edit2:: Noticed theres a solid 32 which is exactly how many managed to consistently stay on my server (+-1) It'd be interesting to see what percentage is the same crowd and what people have completely abandoned discord overall compared to people who have also abandoned CYS or are on hiatus forever.

And yes, the pins are extremely gay. At a specific time of night that just
seems to happen to the channel.

So while I was out, 3J got trolled off the Discord by Ford and Chris.

On one hand I feel like it's probably best that anyone capable of being low-effort bullied by Ford and a barely 16 year old probably should avoid Discord, but on the other hand 3J doesn't use the forum either and that was our one source of info on potential future updates.

Somewhat disappointed in my kids, but I do the best I can while holding down two jobs and it's *hard* being a single mom. Chris still wrote 5000 words today and I'm very proud of him, I believe the lack of a father figure in his life just makes him act out.

You have to learn the art of redirection, which is a skill I picked up working at daycares and with the mentally disabled that I find works very well on CYS.

You can't just say, "Ford, do not use the n-word, for it offends me", or "Ford, do not photoshop Sabley's foot over some anime porn thing" you have to find another, more positive topic and not reward the negative ones with attention. "Ford, you published two story games this month, I'm stunned to learn you're capable of anything productive." "Ford, have you beaten Leora lately?" and so on.

I've been involved in several writing discussions on there today and I'm pretty stoked about the fantasy thing Chris is about to publish, plus will begin testing Theo's IF Comp project in a few days. Townsquare is just the Lounge equivalent lol. I keep it muted for a reason.

Discord gets way more writing discussion than the forum for sure. Half the Creative Corner threads (the half not by Ozoni) come from there because we literally force newbies to write stories to participate on the server.

I agree that there’s no point in catering to the radically fragile.

You don’t have to be emotionally fragile to choose not to hang out in a place that appears to be occupied by edgy fifteen year olds and racists. The appearance is bad enough that it doesn’t much matter what the truth of the matter is. The Discord vibe doesn’t hurt my feelings — I’d just be embarrassed to be associated with it, which is why I’m choosing not to be. I don’t want CYS to be like that because there are plenty of writers that are worthwhile but that don’t like that sort of environment.

Time will tell if the original prediction is hilariously accurate or not but either way I'm pretty happy seeing someone with the balls to tell Disney to fuck off because NO, they do not want to pick cotton today, regardless of whether it works out or not.

Okay, as long as that is bumped, can we address a second issue?

You guys need to stop changing your nick immediately after End does, particularly if it's for a new theme. I guess I might as well make an official rule against being unfun because he isb obviously not going to sit there and have an edit war with you over it lol. We've had two casualties over this so far. And probably it's also happened to a few worthless noobs that I'm forgetting.

Not sure if this has already been done, but y'all should consider adding a Discord notification for when I post in the Site Updates Warning thread. At some point, I should probably build a site-wide notification for it, but I feel like even that would be less effective than a Discord update.

I hate the thought of people losing work when the site goes down and I think that would protect a significant portion of the writing population.

I basically perform that function because I'm the only one subscribed to the warning thread, lol. But yeah we could see if Brad can add that function to the bot.

Hey, @DeathAwaits , how long have you had your brain tumor?

Not sure why you thought you needed to join to get the invite for your middle school friends to attempt their "raid", when it's right here in plain view and public. Maybe this isn't a good career path for you all though, you seem pretty uncoordinated and bad at this.

There are two words that combined would really sum up my feelings towards you and both your pitiful attempt at raiding a 60 person server with your team of special ed kids and your laughable impersonation of a famous YouTuber.

After quite a while, I am ready to return from my exile.

For a good several months, I was swamped with all sorts of projects and commitments. It took a while—especially considering how difficult it is for me to actually begin a task—but I have gotten everything taken care of, so I will be able to resume writing. I promise to actually pull my weight this time around, just like I have in my earlier months!

So please undo my ban, I am not ready to die just yet!

Oh, and btw, how did you guys even get screenshots from the other server? Just about none of you guys are in it!

Digit's server. First post in weeks, and I'm being called out for prior scandal.

Random question from someone who does not regularly use discord:

Is it worth downloading the app to join this channel? Or is it more of a time suck than anything else? Not trying to be confrontational, I just have seen discord channels that were very helpful and some that are more distracting. I have not had an issue using the forums but have seen the discord mentioned often.

I like the community aspect of this site in regards to writing, idea sharing, feedback, and proofreading. If the discord is extremely helpful to writers here I want to join--if it is mostly memes and inside jokes I may not. I haven't exactly dove headfirst into "CYStia" culture. This question is just to see if the discord is something I should check out for improving story games or if it is entertainment.

Fun facts that may help provide a meaningful answer:

- I do not like waking up to 500 notifications about nothing (similar to when I am busy and finally check my phone)

- I enjoy talking and getting to know people, but am not interested in reading 500 pages of lore to understand inside jokes before joining a chat (some discord's are like that...)

- I will not be on it 24/7, just checking occasionally

- willing to review/proofread stories/poems/essays and provide feedback (and like when people return that favor), but I am not necessarily looking for a ton of would you rather type games (occasionally fun, but not looking for them constantly)

- In short of the discord would mostly fit in the "writing workshop" or "creative corner" forums I would be intrigued--if it was mostly the lounge I would be less intrigued.

I appreciate the feedbacks!

It's definitely a lot closer to the lounge than the workshop or creative corner.  It's mostly a hangout.

But it's the unusual day that gets 500 posts.  Mostly it's just a place where we pal around, insult each other, talk about videogames, current events, our days, and so forth.

It can BECOME a time sucking black hole for sure, but that's really up to you. There are always people active to chat due to time zones and crippling insomnia and such, but most of us just have it on our phones at work or school or other places we wouldn't be able to write anyway.

I keep the main channel and several others muted when I'm busy because the white noise can get excessive, but the sanctity of writing discussion is usually respected and it's a place to get quick answers to any questions. And you're not expected to do anything more than check in at least once a week or so, since we do kick people for inactivity.

I appreciate the honest feed backs! If I end up downloading discord to partake I will follow the rules in the original post.

I can easily get sucked into a "time sucking black hole" so I will think about it...

Just to make it clear: the original name of the chat for CYS was "Procrastination."

OFFICIAL official CYS Discord

10 months ago

Hmm...constructive or detrimental procrastination?

 

constructive procrastination:

An intentional delay in ones project during which useful information is gained to complete the project.

detrimental procrastination:

A delay in ones project that is either unintentional, or that is not used to gain meaningful knowledge/feedback to better the project.

this is important scientific information.

OFFICIAL official CYS Discord

Either way, you're not meeting the deadline.

OFFICIAL official CYS Discord

10 months ago

This is a fair point, but I disagree with it. Either way you are delayed; however, if you delay a day to gain information that will take two off of the total project completion time you are one day ahead. Alas, this almost never is the case.

If it is "an intentional delay," I would suggest that's not procrastinating, that's effective planning.

> The server seems to alternate between quiet and absolutely chaotic. You shouldn't get any notifications unless you are pinged, though.

> There are quite a lot of inside jokes about CYS, and there are forums you might be linked to if you want to actually understand them. Most are understandable however, if not a little strange.

> Only like 3 people are on the server 24/7. Almost everyone else is on the server whenever they have a moment to spare that can't be spent writing or reading. Oh—and do make sure you spend reading/writing time reading and writing. Speaking from experience here.

>  A lot of people like to request others on the Discord to review their works, and there's actually a channel pretty much dedicated to that.

> I will not sugarcoat it—the server is like the lounge. It is where a lot of people from CYS like to hang out, and you will often see misadventures not related to reading or writing.

All in all, here's what I would say:

The CYS discord, while it is not nearly as serious as the forums, is a great place to check if you want a pointer to which stories and poems need reviewing. A lot of the humor is unique to CYS, and it may take you a while to understand it, so you're going to have to read lore in your free time, sadly. A lot of it is quite interesting, though.

   All in all, I think you should get it, but you might want to mute the other channels that do not relate to reading and writing as much.

Also keep in mind that the above poster was in Hell nearly all the time the last few months he was there, and thus he didn't have access to most channels.

By choice, mind you.

Speaking of, when you join you're going to get sent to a special channel, and to actually earn your right to stay, you have to write a short story or a lengthy review.

After that, you can get sent to hell for various offenses, but the way out doesn't change; you still write a short story or a review to escape—unless you get a unique, oftentimes more painful task.

Honestly, it's a great place to ignore the distraction of the rest of the server.

Ficsean's experiences should really be disregarded, he was a uniquely shameful individual who kept putting himself in quarantine to inappropriately touch a bot until his eventual ban after being given MANY chances to redeem himself over a period of months.
