A "who is who" list for the Discord server?
#11
I agree with the above suggestion. Perhaps if someone changes their name on Discord they could be encouraged to post about the change on here?

I always thought people changed their display names more than their usernames. A separate channel for username changes would probably suffice. It would be easier to remember to post the change in there rather than trying to remember to come on here and post in the thread.

Yeah, I'd been 50-50 on whether to add a channel or add a pinned thread, but now that I think about it, the channel option sounds like it would be easier to maintain.

If we go with the pinned thread, then it'll need updating whenever someone changes their forum username and whenever someone changes their Discord username - which would just be a nightmare to keep track of. By contrast, the Discord channel option would take care of any Discord changes automatically, so people would just need to remember to post in there whenever they change their forum username. 

I know I recently tried (unsuccessfully) to cut back on the number of channels we have, but here a new channel seems to be the better solution.

Yeah, a thread would likely be too much, but the channel idea would work beautifully.

Tip of a hat, guys. Very nice solution.

Well, since this has been set up now, I guess there's no longer any need for the thread - so, I'll close it. 

Thanks, everybody :) !

Re-opening this for now, to update you guys on developments from the past day. 

We added the channel yesterday evening. Now, 24 hours later, it is gone. We found that it just didn't work as hoped: several people posted their names in an unusual format (e.g. posting it in Japanese), and others were posting things other than their usernames (e.g. "I am Lightning McAwesome"). Inevitably, these posts were generating conversation in the channel (to the detriment of anybody using it for its intended purpose). We decided that, rather than imposing strict rules (which would have been a hassle to enforce), we would just have one pinned post at the top with all the usernames. Then, we realised that, once we had a pinned post, we didn't need the channel any more: we could just pin it in #general. 

So, we now have a pinned post instead of a dedicated channel. @ Nilla has added several names already: if you'd like to have yours added, then let her know :) .
