Alith Discord server for "Real Time" text chat between guildies & friends.
Discord is here! We're very pleased to announce the launch of Discord for our community.
Discord is a social communication tool which gives gaming communities the ability to chat, share pictures, videos, website links, and such, in real time (outside of the game). Discord is primarily a PC / Mac desktop application, but also has a mobile device version and browser based version as well. Discord allows guild members to keep in touch with their fellow guildies and friends, even when not online in the game (through chat rooms and a friends list). We encourage all Alithians to join the Alith Server, and we welcome everyone to join in the chit chat in the communal channels that we've setup for your benefit.
Discord has grown a lot since it's launch, new features continue to be added, and it really is a social platform designed FOR gaming communities. It comes with plenty of features which makes it the perfect tool for our members to stay in touch with each other, and socialise, when not in the game:
- A central place for members to chat and communicate with each other in real time when not in game
- A way for guild members to stay in contact with close friends (Discord supports friends lists)
- An easy way for guild members to share images, videos, and other attachments instantly without needing to make forum posts
- An easy way for members to contact Officers, Raid Leaders, etc, particularly when they're not online in game!
- Another way for Raid Leaders and Officers to send out important urgent announcements (in addition to Forum, Facebook and Twitter)
- As Discord also has an official Mobile Device App (Android and Iphone) - it means you can even ping messages to anyone in the guild, when away from home
- Various Chat channels for you all to enjoy
- Make your own chat rooms (just like parties in game)
- Discord will also show you which Alithians are currently streaming on Twtich, or what game they're playing - so you'll know exactly when Alith-Cast goes live
- Other new and exciting features in development, such as video chat support and overlays for in game (though this is probably some time away)
Discord is not replacing Team Speak. Team Speak will continue to be our Voice Communication platform, but Discord offers a valuable Text Communication platform which will compliment Team Speak nicely. Our guild rules around respect, courtesy and general politeness (which also apply to Facebook, Forum and in game) apply to Discord - so we expect the same standards and behaviour there.

We have also updated our rules section to include the implementation and usage of Discord in the guild - you can find the new Discord rules within our official rules page:
Discord Rules Section:
Alith are pleased to invite all members to join us on our official Discord server.
Discord is a social communication tool which gives our community the ability to chat, share pictures, videos, website links, and such, in real time (outside of the game). Discord is primarily a PC / Mac desktop application, but also has a mobile device version and browser based version as well. Discord also allows guild members to keep in touch with their fellow guildies and friends, even when not online in the game (through chat rooms and a friends list). All Alithians are welcomed to join the Alith Server, and are welcomed to join in the chit chat in the communal channels, as well as communicating with each other privately.
Alith uses Team Speak as our official voice communication platform. Discord is our official text communication platform, for real time text chat outside of the game.
The voice chat channels of Discord have therefore been disabled.
If you have not yet, please read our full briefing for Discord here.
All guild rules regarding etiquette and behaviour towards one another, applies to our Discord chat channels
All guild Forum, Team Speak and Facebook rules, applies to our Discord chat channels
Please visit our rules section to read all details regarding the above
To join the Alith Discord Server, you will need to click on the Invitation link located here. If your Discord name is the same or very close to your ESO name, we will automatically activate your Discord account. If not, please ensure to add your Discord name to your Forum Profile here on our website, and then contact an Officer to inform us so that we can recognise you on Discord
When advertising for group members in Discord, members must ensure to post their advert in Guild Chat as well. This is to ensure that non-Discord users do not miss out on opportunities to join groups, and also to ensure that in-game guild chat isn't negatively impacted.
While we welcome any chit chat and discussions in Discord, all important guild news, updates, and official discussions will continue to be raised in the Forum. Links to those forum threads may be posted in Discord to direct members to the forum to join in those important discussions. (Much like what is done currently on Facebook).
The Alith Discord server is for use by current Alith members only. Any members who leave the guild, or are removed, will be automatically removed from the Discord server.
Alithians using Discord, DO have permission to send "Discord Invites" to other Alithians who have not yet joined Discord. A guild officer will have to approve the user before they can have access to the server however. Please ask if you would like to learn how to send "Discord Invites".
Alithians are welcomed to add their friends from Alith to their friends list in Discord and are welcomed to use all chat features of Discord
Alithians may also use Discord to contact any of the Alith Management team directly, even when they are not online in game.
Alithians should not use the Alith server to post recruitment adverts for other guilds, and should not post invitations to other guilds Discord servers in the communal channels.
