4/5/22 update: YES the invite is invalid, stop bumping a three year old thread. If you're ever important and based enough that we wanted you in the discord, you will find out.
(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)
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.
Looking like a serious set up so far.
Update: Ford is still wrong.
Various people, welcome to Mizal's Discord.
Ford, you're banned.
That is all.
Jesus, I barely do much other then lurk around the discord server but damn, you got like 3 of the things. Maybe I wont get banned randomly in this one or get really confused as to what the topic is about.
The true holy land appears on the horizon at last; let us march about and sound the trumpets.
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.
Coming soon to Blockbuster Video, alongside a tie-in NES platformer that we promise will suck...
2005: ZOO IN THE STREETS
Why exactly was MrAce banned from CYS? Was it because of shitposting, or anything like that?
Teenage Mutant Aspie Retard
jeff21turtle, jeff22turtle, helloiamturtle, jeff23turtle, jeff24turtle, jeff25turtle, jeff26turtl, thetyrant21, iamashark, darkdoom333, darkdoom, helloend, jef21turtle, darkdoomiscool, Nightshade333, helpme987, helpme333, whatisgoingon, helloiamcool, hellohearmeout, fathertime, Pain, itisme, thisisnotagame, thisisnogame, jeffffffffff, listen, Jeff_, Jeff__, Whynot, Jeffisaturtle21, MrAce, Jeff_the_Turtle, Jeff_the_Turtle2, Jeff_the_turtle3, SuperSerpent321, MrAce, My_Name_is_boi, Tyler_Da_Typist
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.
He sure liked turtles.
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.
"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?
"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.
Banned King Raptor as well. Can't remember what for exactly, but I wrote that was he was being a faggot so it was a legit reason.
I can confirm that Theseus was not me. If I wanted to join your Discord, I would just use my original name. Come on now.
Understandable. Still, I'd at least have the courtesy to use one of the three usernames I've had on this site so I'd be easily recognizable.
Mizal said you'd basically have to break up with Ford and set his balls on fire before you could join her Discord.
(Mizal actually just said to break up with Ford. If it was my Discord you could just set his balls on fire, and I'd let you stay.)
your battered wife routine gets really annoying, and there's only so long anyone can picture you eating ford's unwashed ass to make him happy without reacting in violent disgust
she says, wiping a fresh dingleberry off her tongue.
pro tip, it's not abuse if your boyfriend wants you to stomp on his balls
it's when a piece of shit gets lodged in your ass hairs, and you have to pull it out to get all the shit out of your asscrack after dropping a fat deuce. sometimes it gets some blood on it
well im sorry, mrs perfectly shaved asscrack.
tell me, when you wax your asshole, do you do ford's as well?
Though I don’t know you too well, one thing I do know is that every time someone makes some sort of remark about you, you always must reply with a petty playground insult that only the most proficient 2 year old could spout from their toothless gums. It’s a waste of your time. Go back to helping Ford put on his socks and perhaps that will teach you some sense of vocabulary.
I admire you for your guts. Please do spend more time on here. Maybe it will give you inspiration to write something of value. I wish you luck on your quest. Tie some shoelaces.
read through that whole shitstorm and I wish for death
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.
The username in the discord is preferred, though. You immediately lose brownie points for making us do anything in another tab just to confirm who you are.
You message random people here? I rarely feel the need to message anyone.
Just kicked myself.
Feels good man.
Yeah, like there was every any doubt.
You gave me this power, Mizal. I'm just using it.
Digit out weebs everyone else so he got top billing for it.
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. (Yes, there was a trolling theme last night, so I approve of your name change for me)
I'm an institutional man, now. Don't think I can handle life on the outside
Aw man, how could you leave out the classic "With all my heart, I wish to do nasty things to Tim" pin?
I'd post it but I'm in Furry Hell and IIRC it's already been shared here so.
You degenerates can't have a complete fagfest, I have to leave some room for Sabley's blowjob posts and especially posts that are directly praising me. (And a big fuck you, to whoever deleted some of those.)
Why the hell did you give Steve any sort of power, you knew that was going to happen. Lol.
My point is that giving Steve ANY sort of power is a bad idea.
Your reasoning for doing so is bad and you should feel bad.
*squints eyes and turns my head to the side*
yea i guess i could work faster on my games haha
Y’know, it would be a really awesome idea to give me some powers! Totally not begging, or anything.
How do we know if anyone is black?
Googling any place called "Meetup" sounds like it would reveal much different results than a writing group.
There, everyone's some sort of Latin now instead of black, it's a step up.
Oh great and powerful mod of the people, the Supreme and Lauded Mizal with a capital M, I humbly beg for readmission into the Amazing and Glorious Discord. May her glorious reign last a thousand years. I also beseech the many loyal constituents to show mercy upon me and to allow me back, knowing that Mizal is just and fair in her actions towards the people.
In addition to this, I acknowledge Tolkein as the great and powerful writer he is who never wrote anything even mildly bad in his life and as a literal God-King among men, Gandalf as a spectacular wizard, and I acknowledge Mad Max as an incredibly masterpiece of art that it truly is.
Wait a minute, when did you not like Mad Max? I know Bucky doesn't, but I thought you didn't mind it.
I thought it was an excellent movie.
Living would be enough I imagine.
Well someone certainly has a high opinion of her vagina.
Considering you claimed the Edgelord contest wasn't a "real contest" and crossed it off and you still had Kiel and Seth's faggot contests listed on your to do list, you were pretty much doomed anyway.
I think he can manage the first two, but that last one is going to be nearly impossible.
I bet one point that he will last three weeks.
Only memorable thing about him was he got all pissy when I changed his name to RAPE FACE due to his avatar.
This is indeed a thing that happened.
A shame. Maya did some sick burns when she wasn't in hell. And a few in hell also.
Honestly, you lot were trying to save someone who didn’t want to be saved longer than you needed to.
Better to know when to just let go.
I just typed uwu instead of owo, got insta blocked. I'm cold, lonely, broken, my heart is palpitating, my lungs are collapsing, I fell out of my seat and my dad pulled out the belt because he heard me and we can't afford the gigs right now. 10/10, would do uwu again.
I'm still wondering how Digit got powerful enough to enslave anyone.
Digit has finally embraced his dormant violent Aztec heritage, enslaved several noobs, forcing them to compete in tasks and sacrificing the losers to the Gods. (That would be me and Mizal)
That's commie talk.
While assume you are referring to me, I lost WiFi again after my last message yesterday. I assume I was kicked because I did not do the task and was going to do that and the other one today.
If you don’t believe I lost WiFi I did, though I will admit I should have done it before
Hey, why'd ya had to call me out by name? I am quietly serving my sentence, counting down the days before I, too, can enslave the helled.
I’m currently enslaved under suspicion of being ford or coins
Actually it might be just for fun, and Digit just gave that excuse as an excuse to jail me in discord
Btw Bgurl don’t trust anyone
Really don't like how people just join servers to join servers. Y'know, flaunt off thier power by saying "You're in 5 servers? Pathetic. I'm in over 10 billion discord servers".
Apparently our Discord finally gained enough experience to level up.
Ford boosted us with Discord Nitro, and for his troubles he was slaughtered by the villain dubbed "Chris".
It's okay though. He got better.
I assume i got banned the moment i joined the server for having ''uwu'' as username. didn't realize it was taboo at the time lol
F. for now.
I think the whole of Discord is dead yeah.
ah i found it, next time try not to ruin the fun @C6H8O6
He lives in the library and video game channels, you wouldn't know him.
I didn’t know this was a thing. I’ll have to get in on it now.
I joined the server like a month ago i guess but somehow got banned one hour after i joined while i was inactive . why is that ?
Inactive people get killed occasionally. For the lulz. Especially CoGites.
I'll gladly murder anyone who joins then never talks but it wasn't me this time.
I joined at midnight before i went to sleep . i did not ''ignore'' anyone . i was actually pretty hype to see what its like the next day .
Who just joins a server then decide, "Well, time to hit the sack! Goodnight, people that will presumably want to know my CYS username upon joining!"
And here i thought the coghites were the ones easily triggered .
lol go back to Reddit skrub
Just because i've been gone for like what ? 8 hours ? does not mean i went awol or ignored anyone .
Like i said . i joined at the last minute before i went to bed . i didnt even know this place had a discord i just stumbled on this thread when i was checking forum .
Edit: you're good at stalking to describe in such detail . also we have very different timezones so you have to understand that not everyone can be available at your leisure.
I mean did you not read The Rules.
Because you didn't follow Rule 1.
But all you had to do was either:
1) Wait until morning to join
2) Introduce yourself before going to bed
3) Read the rules in the OP
It isn't about timezones or Mizal's leisure. You didn't follow the rules. This isn't the hill you want to die on.
I don't think anyone would wait until morning to join a server, but the other two is a given - in fact, it should just be force of habit!
Sounds like a real stand-up guy
Yeah, I just wasn't particularly enjoying hanging out with edgy children. To each their own.
I'll be posting updates here as they're made in the N&U forum and you can always contact me via PM.
I think you summed it up wonderfully when you said that I should avoid Discord. Different people enjoy different environments and that one wasn’t for me, personally.
I was always surprised you even hung out at the old IRC Villain Lair.
Some of us are wholly un-edgy adults. I wouldn't paint the Discord with such a big brush. There's a lot of amazing discussion of writing there. And I think that this forum pretty well gets around what you might expect to see (and probably have seen) in the Discord.
Actually, the Discord is far tamer.
Best to keep that stuff in the Discord, going forward.
Obviously not. But I’m happy for those to happen anywhere.
But it’s honestly just great that people are talking about writing!
I just ignore anything I find foul, wherever it is. I'm here to talk about interactive fiction and interesting experiments with prose and BS with people when I should be working. Some people here don't talk the way I do, and they say things I don't say, but that's true wherever I go on the internet. It's easy enough to ignore a thread here if it gets too much for me.
Yeah — but many great writers may be less flexible.
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. On the flip side, people who love that sort of behavior will always have Discord :)
This is unfortunate. Ford is definitely a bad influence on Chris and I advise we take steps to openly torture and execute Ford while simultaneously invoking the necessary cleansing rituals to prevent his rebirth.
I'll take care of Chris.
I did not expect 3J to leave over that.
For what it's worth, I apologize to 3J for the demeaning roles I'd repeatedly give him. It started as light-hearted jokes but eventually it got pretty out of hand, and I truly am sorry for that. Whether he comes back to the Discord or not, I want him to know that I think highly of him and respect him both as an admin for his contributions to the site, and as a person for his surprisingly laidback attitude in the face of someone calling him a "transn***er who leaves his children to buy cigarettes for fifteen years".
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.
In an ideal world, we'd have multiple servers and load balancers so that the website doesn't go down for an update... but that is not on the table haha.
And that concludes the failed "raid" by Skeltro and the Piss Patrol. Good night folks.
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. However, I am no longer allowed to say those words. Just know that you will be remembered around here, but probably not for the reasons you expect.
Wait we are not allowed to say lol f*g?
Well I guess I'm stuck using this primitive communication device the natives call "the forum" for now...
I was dead on my end for like 20 minutes. It's working for me rn, however.
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.
Anyways, I was thinking I was banned as a message to get myself together, but it's just as likely that someone just came along and thought, Well, he's been inactive for a while anyway. Free kill~
Figured. Probably how Mizal has gotten it.
Regardless, I have learned my lesson, I am ready to rejoin society!
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.
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...
Hmm...constructive or detrimental procrastination?
An intentional delay in ones project during which useful information is gained to complete the project.
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.
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.
Fair enough, I stand corrected, thank you for the clarifications!
> 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.
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.
Flash backs to my entry to the pit of shame have me worried...I have already written a short story that was commended and a reviews that have been featured though. I could probably get out of this "hell" at the cost of time on my current work.
Why thanks, I am glad I am considered a normal and useful member of society haha.
Thank you for the detailed response!
Hey, my points were in the negatives ever since the account was created!
Fine, I'll get actual things done without the server there to distract me. I am curious what has been going on as of late though, so please do make sure to send a postcard or something!
Also—and I will argue this to the grave—they are not lolis!
I got tagged here but I can't find the post?
I had the same problem. They probably delated it
Honestly. They're just bullying us at this point with all these post delations.
Just stumbled upon this post. Did I find a relic of the past?
You've been here for 2 years and this is the first thing you post?
Lot of member posts on this thread who aren't here anymore.
Most of them sucked anyway.
So I hear Suranna's been trying to get into the realm of the GODS.
While rather bold and presumptuous that she's even worthy of being let in, it's understandable that a lowly peon such as herself would want in.
Still, there is some promise there despite some major failings of her character, so she may succeed in raising her lowly station. It is possible after all. Killing Ant was a good step in the right direction.
But remember no matter how high you go, I will always be doing your mom.
I would've held off asking for a little while, but I know Ant was allowed in, and I feel like I'm a considerable cut above her. No offense to Ant though; I personally had no qualms against her. But I'll crush under my feet who I need to in order to ascend to GODHOOD.
Ah, I should've figured it was something like that.
Anime profile pictures, and whatever Darius is don't tend to last there.
Did you see what happened to Cel?
That shit was high octane comedy.
Heck yeah, I like to think that my drawings are not of a generic anime style!
- children often also don't last long if I remember. All the teenage girls (stargirl, Typecat and Ant) left over the course of months or weeks. Cel surprisingly lasted well over a year. I do wonder why.
Too bad he's also dead on the site. Last I heard of him he was planning to write some kind of slasher story with fish themes. Even coded in that stat menu thingy you only see in Price of Freedom, very high effort.
I think your art can be labeled as 'androgynous twink core'.
I mean no offense. Maybe if it was coming from Dark, it would be meant in offense, though.
It sounds like the discord is lacking for members...
Weren't you kicked out?
I was washing my own clothes when I was even younger than that.
Please tell me you do your own laundry now. Lel.
Sometimes you have to clean, just so you can have a cleaner environment for yourself. Crusty microwaves sound disgusting.
If anything there's already too many poopy lurkers in there. Though I think Madglee is in prison or currently still hiding from the cops, so his internet access might be limited.
Ant shouldn't have been there in the first place and got kicked out.
She's dead now anyway.
EDIT: Oh I missed where Mizal explained the situation.
Anyway, she's still dead.
