Hey dear internet surfer! Are you new to Discord?
Fear not! I'm here to help with a simple guideline and a couple of key concepts that you need to know
A) We mainly use the "web app"
- because it's very handy and well-made, but
if you want the full experience you can download the app for Windows or for your smartphone later:
with those you'll be able to receive push notifications in case we mention you, or invite you to play.
B) Supposedly you are reading this guideline because you don't have a full Discord Account yet, so
when you'll join our Discord Server
for the first time you will be prompted to pick a username.
You will also be prompted right away to claim
your account by submitting an email and a password:
do that, you will receive a confirmation email. If you don't please take a look at this support article
If for any reason you dismissed the "claim your account"
popup, you can still claim your account by
opening the user settings (click on the cog icon
on the bottom-left, next to your username) and
then going into the My Account
menu. From there you can submit your email and your password.
C) The final important key concept in case you'll use the web app only (especially if you plan to use
Discord on multiple PCs) is that in order to access it you shall use this URL: https://discord.com/login
or this one (to land on our default channel): https://discord.com/ch...204288/304107718984204288
I suggest you to bookmark the link above in your web browser and use it to open the Discord web app.
Don't use the button on our homepage anymore because you risk being prompted to create a new
Discord Account, when you already have one. Notice the tiny Already have an account?
the Continue button in the first screenshot
: that's what you have to click in case you end up visiting
our invite link again by mistake or from another PC.
If you are struggling and you need further help, you can either visit the discord support website
or you can message me on Discord (even if you didn't manage to claim your account yet) or on the other platforms linked under my signature.
