Happy Birthday Discord!

Our Discord Server Has Turned 1!

Today, the PokeCommunity's Discord server is one year old! Thanks, everyone, for continually making it a fantastic place to chat and relax. We've had plenty of fun in the day-to-day chat, as well as in organized events such as The PokeCommunity Get-Together. In just one year, as you'll soon see visually, we've grown an outstanding amount: our active and online user count has grown consistently month after month, we got partnered with Discord in roughly six months, and we're now over 1.5 million total messages sent! It's been a blast so far and it won't stop any time soon. If you haven't joined the server yet, make sure to drop by! Everyone is welcome.

With love from PC's Social Media Team...

Big thanks to Achromatic for whipping this up!

Server Activity Stats

Messages per Month (in thousands)

This past month wasn't our best, but overall our activity has risen incredibly quickly! We've gone from around 20 users online at a time and a few hundred messages a day to 300+ users online and ten thousand messages per day, all in only a year.

Messages by Channel

This graph is based on a logarithmic scale, so it looks a bit misleading. The numbers on the bottom axis are purely for visual purposes. The real numbers are printed next to the channel names. At this rate we should be celebrating 1 million messages in #general alone sometime within the next month!

Share Your Discord Memories!

Some highlights this past year:
  • PokeCommunity Get-Together 14
  • E3 Discussion
  • Sun & Moon hype & release
  • The Great Christmas War of 2016 (Go Team Grinch)
  • The Nintendo Switch announcement discussion

Do you have any fond memories on our Discord server? Post them below!

What is Discord?

Discord is a free live chatting application, similar to Skype and Slack. It's like those two had a baby. You can use it in-browser at www.discord.gg or download the app on your computer and phone. By joining our server (click here), you can join the community and chat about, among others, #pokemon, #rom-hacking, #gaming, #music; share your work in the #artist-studio or #writers-lounge; find your 6IV ditto in the #tradecorner (yea, right); or just hang out in #general! Discord is a pressure-free environment where you can come & go as you please. We're all there to hang out, make friends and have fun.

How Are We Doing?

We'd love to hear from you! If you have any feedback or simply want to drop a comment, feel free to PM any of the Discord moderoids! If you'd like to keep your feedback private, please specify that in your feedback PM. Only the one you've chosen to PM will know who you are.

The Discord mods are: McCree, Rainbow, engineer, Frieza, hashtag, Hands, Nina, Bebop, bobandbill, Hiroshi Sotomura, Sylphiel and Rukario. Click a name to send a message!

I've only been in the discord for about a month, but it has been a fun one. I hope it can stay just as good in the future!

I have only been on Discord for about a few weeks. But that time was about the time of my life at least this year. The best part to me was making some friends like Raffy98 and Coffee (thats not all of them). There would be too many to say, but for the most part everyone is really nice on there. I hope I will be here for a full year like the discord server has! :)

Don't trust people too much, they might let you down.
