Frequently Asked Questions

Don't worry, we all need to start somewhere—if you're a beginner and still need to find your way around, chances are the F.A.Q. will answer a lot of the questions you may have. Before asking in the forums, it's wise to check this page first!

If you have suggestions for the F.A.Q., feel free to contact a staff member.


What is Discord?
Discord is a text and voice-chat application. It's available on almost all platforms, both as a dedicated program and as an in-browser application, as well as on Android and iOS mobile devices. You can use it to talk with other people in real time, through chatroom channels or in one-on-one Direct Messages.
How do I get to SMW Central's Discord Server?
See our Discord page for information regarding our server, including the rules and how to set-up Discord.
I joined the server. How can I see all the channels?
You need to verify your SMW Central account. The Discord page lists clear instructions, but a bot and our moderators will assist you if you speak up in the channel titled #verification.
Can I make my own channels, like on IRC?
You cannot make your own channels on the SMW Central Discord Server, because Discord operates differently from IRC. Instead, you can simply click on the big plus (+) button at the bottom of your server list inside Discord to create your very own server and then invite your friends into that server. Creating your own server is completely free.
How do I change my name color? Why do some people have unique name colors?
The color of your name in Discord is based on the color of your username on the site. You can change this by going to Edit Profile. The users with unique name colors are moderators, staff members, and admins, with a few exceptions, just like on the site.
I'm seeing users on Discord using italics, bold characters, strike-through, and code blocks in their posts. How can I do the same with mine?
This article explains how you can format your posts in Discord.
How do I place spoiler tags around my posts/images in Discord?
Add || to the beginning and end of the words you want hidden under a spoiler tag. To tag an image as a spoiler, check the box that says Mark as spoiler before posting the image.
How do I report abuse, such as harassment?
Direct Message one of the Discord Moderators (someone who is listed at the top of the userlist on the right, under the "DISCORD MODERATORS" category) by right clicking their name and then hitting Message. Talk to them about your problem, be it with another user, with Discord, or with the server.
