What is Discord
Discord is an app similar to WhatsApp where people in a group can contact each other. But unlike WhatsApp, it’s far more interactive and organized. For example, you can not have 1,000 people in 1 WhatsApp group without utter chaos. Everyone would wake up to hundreds of messages every morning, and most would leave or permanently mute the group chat.
Initially designed for large gaming communities, Discord is a lot better. Sinbi Muay Thai has its own Discord Server with multiple chat channels inside it, where everything can be categorized and organized. Like a channel to share your photos, another channel to share your videos, a recommendations channel etc. It’s straightforward to use with an intuitive UI. Apps like Discord are great for building communities and are slowly phasing out the usual online forums.

How To Use Discord?
When you join our Discord, you are given the Students Role. In addition, you can see on the right-hand side, or if you swipe to the right on the mobile app, there is a “Trainers” role and a “Staff” role. If you have a question and need the attention of a staff member, you can type @Staff. This will tag the member of staff, giving them a notification. In Discord, we call this “Pinging” to “Ping” a member of staff. For example, you can type “@Staff is the office open on Sundays?“. Please be aware though the staff can be busy, or your time zone can be in the middle of the night for them. So only Ping them if the question is somewhat urgent. Other students in the Discord can answer most questions.
