WE FINALLY HAVE PLACE IN DISCORD!
As some of you may know, some months ago we were planning to create a Discord server for our community (our competitions community).
After we had decided to create it and started working on it, right when we were ready to announce it, we had a setback.
But now we're finally ready to announce it.
In addition, I will finally be able to share a very interesting server for all of us.
I have been wanting to share it for some time, but I was waiting because I wanted to announce it with our section.
A GREAT COMMUNITY
Our Discord section will be in the Scene Director Server (read bellow in the FAQ why we will do this instead of make our own server).
As many of you know Scene Director is one of the main mods used by PC users to create amazing Machinima's since GTA V came to PC.
The point is that despite having this name, this server over the months has become much more than a server originally intended to talk about the updates of the mod Scene Director. Right now, Scene Director's Discord server has become the main server for GTA V Machinima's producers and fans.
We're gonna have three channels at our disposal, for now.
1. Actual Round - On this channel you will be able to view the current round that will be active.
2. Contest General - It will be used to discuss topics related to the development of the contest and its components. Talk to administrators, discuss new rounds and stuff. It will be like the "recess area" related to contest themes.
3. Past Rounds and Winners - This it will be our Hall of fame, from now on the winners of our contests and their winning videos will be featured here.
- What it's Discord? - Briefly; The biggest Chat channels service focused in Videogame players of the moment. More info here.
- Why a Discord server? - We believe it is a perfect way to keep our contestants connected and getting to know each other. The Forum format of this website limits much of a faster and smoother interaction.
- Why join Scene Director Discord instead of make our own Server Discord? - Very simple, as you may have read above the Scene Director server has become the main meeting point for hundreds of Machinima's creators of GTA V mainly. We had two options: One, to create our own server with the few active and frequent users we have in this topic and surely to have it barely active in terms of activity. Or... the second, create our chat section with GTA V's largest "Machinimakers" community, which already has several advice and help channels to create Machinima's, a showroom channel of Machinima's, a constant and active community with who you can talk, ask for help, advise, praise, learn and many other things. In addition to having fun, since you will not be forced to constantly talk about Machinima's but also movies, TV series, laugh with the memes of the memes channel, because not all life is about Machinimas. But the main reason was to have a much bigger userbase, it benefits us all and you will see how you will not love the decision we have made.
- Will we still have control over the contest on another server? - Control total, afirmativo.
- The contest will no longer be held here in the GTA forums? - No, the contest will still being celebrated here and the Discord channels will be updated with what it will happening here.
- Is it required to join the Discord server to continue participating? - No, you're absolutely free to do not join the Discord server, it will not affect the contest in any way. But, you'll be able to be way more "connected" to the competition, chatting with others participants and asking questions that can be quickly answered.
- What do I need to do for join the Discord server? - Just have/create a Discord account (it's very easy and fast to make) and then press the link bellow this post.
WE HAVE A NEW ADMINISTRATOR!
Oh yeah! Welcome NightBeauty to the Administrators group, because from now on he will help me update the contest both here and on the Discord server.
