Discord Server Templates

Hello I made a quick template for discord for any team that wants to try out swapping over.

If anyone else have templates they would like to share, please do so.

I don’t think I’d recommend putting emoji in text channel names, but otherwise looks nice!

(I’m also more a fan of “glass house” channels for leadership where everyone can see, but only the relevant parties can talk, but that’s more my preference/my former team’s MO than anything else.)

Yeah I’d definitely recommend removing the emojis if you added more channels. My biggest issue with them is that they make servers feel messy if the same ones are used a lot or if some Channels don’t have any. Personally I like smaller servers with emojis, but I understand the issues with them.

I recommend making a message like this in the info section and updating it when you add a role or an important channel.

hard disagree – a lot of sensitive matters are often discussed in leadership channels, and in my experience leadership should be the only one discussing those issues, to prevent that from negatively affecting the experience of other members: i.e. parent issues, students overworking themselves, mentors having a different goal for the program & different ideas on how to run it, etc., and tbh every student on the team would be stressed a lot more if they had to deal with that stuff, so we just keep that the responsibility of dealing with said issues to leadership, to ensure a more enjoyable and welcoming environment for newer members
