Nonchalant Dominance Discord Server
Whilst these forums are the basis for the smooth running of NoDo and the organisation of events, the Discord server is the place to be to get involved with the day-to-day operations of the community. Chatting with other members, jumping in to impromptu races, and participating in events will all happen via the Discord server. Below explains how to get the most from it and some helpful tips for the platform.
Joining The Discord Server
Joining is easy, but you need to do a few extra things to get the most out of it.
1) Join the server using this link: discord.gg/xJt2GSJ.
2) For the best experience download the desktop and/or mobile app. It will work in a browser too though.
3) Ideally make sure your nickname in the server matches your forum name or PSN ID/Xbox GT/Steam ID (you can change your nickname on a server-by-server basis from the "Nonchalant Dominance" menu at the top of the channel list).
4) React to the message in #Welcome using the PC, Xbox, or Playstation Emoji to join that platform's group and gain access to a limited number of chats for GTA Online & other racing games to jump in to some quick racing.
5) To unlock all available channels and gain the majority of functions in the server, complete the steps required to become a Verified NoDo Member here: nodo.freeforums.net/thread/1945. If you already are verified on the forums but don't have that role on Discord let us know in that thread.
6) Once your Verified Member status has been applied in Discord have a look around and get involved in some games! For more info on how to ignore channels you're not interested in or further customise your experience see below.
NOTE: Until you get the verified member status on discord the server will be very limited, including not being able to see message history. This is by design. When verification applications are processed on the forums and the role awarded in discord you'll see a much more open and involved server.
Tips For The Discord Server
These tips may help you customise your experience so you're only seeing the things you want to see. If you need any further help post on the Help and Support section of this forum or on the Discord server directly.
When you become a verified member you'll have access to all channels available in the server. A lot may not be of any interest to you. To mute channels do the following:
1) On Desktop/Browser: Right-click the channel and tick "mute #<channel>", or click the bell icon in the top right when you have a channel selected. On Mobile App: Select a channel and click the name at the top of the channel, then go to "Notification Settings" and select "mute #<channel>".
2) To hide channels that you've muted from the list, click the "Nonchalant Dominance" menu at the top of the channel list and click "Hide Muted Channels". This can't be done on the mobile app at the moment.
Often pinned messages for a channel will be important so it's a good idea to know how to view them. On Desktop/Browser: Click the pin icon in the top right when you have a channel selected. On Mobile App: Select a channel and click the name at the top of the channel, then go to "Pinned Messages".
To see a list of messages in which you've been mentioned/tagged, simply click the @ symbol (top right on Desktop/Browser, bottom next to settings cog on Mobile App).
Typing "!tagword <word>" will activate the bot to send you a direct message every time that word is used in a chat on the server. There are specific tag words you can use to be notified of playlists, events, racing, etc for specific channels and these can be found within pinned messages on the respective channels. Use "!tagword" on its own to get a list of your tag words, and repeat the original command to remove a word from the list. "!tagword offline" can be used to make the bot only send you tag words when you're offline.
We also use some standardised tags which you can use to be notified of things happening. For example if someone is hosting a racing playlist on GTA on PS4, the "ps4gta" tag can be used to notify everyone who has opted in to that tag. Standard tags follow the same pattern -> platform followed by game. Platforms are either "ps4", "xb1", or "pc" and games can be "gta", "gt", "fm", "pc2", "ph", "ow", "fn", "pubg", "csgo", "ets2", "r6", "rl". These all correspond to the game chats on the server channel list.
If you want to be notified when someone is playing some PUBG for example so you can join and you're on PC, you would type "!tagword pcpubg". Then if you're about to play some PUBG and you want to see if anyone else wants to join, simply type "pcpubg" in the corresponding chat to notify everyone who has opted in to the tag. For Project Cars 2 racing on PS4 you can use "!tagword ps4pc2" to be notified when racing is happening, and use "ps4pc2" in the chat to notify everyone that something is going on if they want to be involved. These are simply examples, and the process is the same for all platforms/games.
