Channel Organization for Dummies
This is the first post on here, so welcome I guess. This is basically where I'll make random posts related to running a Discord server.
Channels should be: – Distinct. Do not make multiple channels that are close or identical in topic. – Purposeful. Do not make channels just because you feel like it. They should serve a purpose of conversation. Do not be afraid to trim unused channels. – Topical, but not overly specific.
Channel names should be:
– Related to their topic. Good:
– Self explanatory. Good:
– Concise. Good:
– Non-thematic. Good:
#man-pages. Note: you can tweak word choice to add a bit of flair, but you should retain the self explanatory aspect.
A good format is a single noun, plus a second word to clarify if needed. For example:
Category names should be: – Short. One word at the most. Any more is excess. – Nouns. Good: Contribution. Bad: Contributing. – Emoji-free. – Non-thematic. Good: Chat. Bad: /var/.
Channels should be organized in this order:
- Information, modlog, etc.
- Webhook channels (news, github updates, etc)
- Chat channels
- Private channels
