3) If you're planning on moving towards bots, I also suggest potentially re-purposing the discordrpg into a "general bots commands" channel. I know you plan on providing specific channels for specific bot uses (UNO, trivia, others in the future maybe), but many bots have multiple, more general uses, so maybe having a #bot-commands channel might be useful for allowing people to do random bot stuff (check rank, RPG stuff if they wish, etc). I've seen a few bots have a mini economy system whereby you can "duel" others, bet, make polls, etc. 

I could definitely help out with this (since I did make the entire Discord RPG command/item list myself :P )

This is all great, and I'd like to thank everyone for the suggestions - but, my goal here is to cut down on little-used channels (to make room for the trivia and Uno ones). Half the suggestions here are to add even more channels, many of which would likely be little-used. 

For example, #science_and_maths barely gets much activity as it is, so I really don't see any benefit to splitting it into two. Then we'd just go from one fairly inactive channel to two really inactive channels :-/ . I think it should be broadened to science, tech and perhaps even history (maybe we could call it "#brainybsns" to go with "#srsbsns" :P).

As for #srsbsns, I'd prefer to keep it untouched. I think everyone understands that it's for generally-controversial stuff that could cause drama (e.g. politics), and I'd prefer to keep that stuff all on one place if possible. Besides, #srsbsns is a nice idiosyncratic name, and I'd rather not replace it with something completely vanilla, like #politics. 

And, we could certainly have a single channel for bot-related stuff (which would include, but not be limited to, bot games like the trivia). That's actually quite a good idea :D . (Though, even if I did that, I'd probably still scrap the RPG: I can't see it doing anything other than getting in the way of other games. If we're going to have one person typing "#!mine" or "#!chop" while other people are trying to answer trivia questions, then that's just gonna get annoying :-/ )

Since there hasn't been any more comment over the past couple of days, here's what I've decided to do: 

 
  • #science_and_maths has been renamed to #brainybsns. This covers science, maths, history, tech, and any other intellectual stuff.

  • #discordrpg is now #discordgames. This is still the home of the Discord RPG (for now; we'll probably scrap it if it just ends up getting in the way), but we'll be adding trivia bots and stuff like that. Checking your rank can still be done anywhere; there's no specific channel for that.

Now that a decision has been made, I guess it's time to close this. Thanks for the feedback, everyone :) !
