    wait, so the grey slash icon is just the same as a green check? i'm confused as to why there are three options in what should be a yes/no question.

    The grey slash means the server permissions apply. By adding the green check or red x you are overriding the server permissions.

    I can't find the server settings on the mobile app (android) so I can't assign roles when I'm not by my PC. Are there any commands you can use in stead?

    Currently, the only way to adjust the server settings is through the desktop app. This feature will be available on mobile devices in the near future.

    If you have a channel where only anyone with a role can see, you either have to assign a role to view that channel , or set up permissions for every role in that channel. for instance, If I have a tiered set up where I have admins, staff, and members, and I have 4 channels, where one everyone can see, one only members staff and admins can see, one only staff and admin can see, and one only admin can see, I either have to set up permissions for all 3 roles in the member chat and so on up, or I have to assign every role to admins in order for them to see the member channel.

    It would help if I could just disable roleless access, so server permissions would still drop down, even when I disable access to @everyone.

    how can I change the settings so I am not muted whenever I enter a voice chat?

    So, if we just want server permissions we don't need to add any roles/members to specific channels, and the main server settings will be applied?

    Thanks for explaining this. Here's a feature idea: it would be useful to make roles "mentionable" like the @everyone group if they're prefixed by the '@' symbol. So if, say, a server has a group called @moderators, when someone mentions the that group, its members receive notifications. That way, if someone's being abusive but there are no mods online at the moment, a regular user can get a mod's attention.

    Is there a way to display the roles of members under their username in the text or voice channel list? That way users know who are admins, moderators or whatever.

    Is it possible to set a text channel to private? There is no "connect" permission for text channels and I don't want everyone to read information in it.

    Hey Ko,

    If you turn off the "read messages" ability for @everyone and enable it for certain roles. It'll function as a private chat.

    What happens if a channel has @everyone as the default/grayslash, but a certain group gets green checks for read/send? (Just trying to understand stuff) That mean @everyone and @specialgroup gets read/send?

    @stella, the gray means that it's neutral and will take the server settings. If you were to mark @everyone with a red slash, they wouldn't be restricted to that specific option.

    Thanks Dan! <3 8) Been playing with it and I think I understand all of it! (It helps to see people on the side switch in and out)

    @stella, the best way to learn it is to actually experience it :) Reading it can only do so much. Glad to hear that you've mastered it now.

    Another thing that would be very helpful would be the ability to have sub-channels. For instance: A room called "Dungeons", and then three SUB-channels called Dungeon 1, Dungeon 2 and Dungeon 3. This would allow enough rooms for a large guild without causing members to scroll forever to find a channel

    @Redjon, There's no text in the voice channels to disable read messages. You can't hide a voice channel since an admin will be able to drag and drop users into them.

    If I disable "read message history" does that keep people from reading anything that was posted while they weren't on (their own previous sessions excluded) or does it clear everything from before they signed on for the current session. Want to make sure I got this right before I drag the guild in and....well some people just aren't as nice as others.

    @Demel, The session I believe. When they log out and back in, they'll have a blank slate

    If I allow 'Manage Roles' for a group, in my case, admins, so they can assign other admins, what happens to me (the server owner), does that allow them to change my role and admin powers?

    No, the server owner has a special hidden permission. They can't be booted or banned, even by someone that you grant full permissions to. Was the very first thing I tried to do when my mate was trying to get me to try this and help him test functionality. So far, I've not discovered any way to take control of a server from actual interface, regardless of the settings; I have not, however, attempted anything more nefarious like exploring potential injection or replay attacks. This is only an endorsement of the apparent security of the up-front user interface.

    I don't see the gray slash, red cross or green tick. All I see is a blue tick.

    That's because you're looking at the server settings, not the channel settings. Server settings under roles are only either grey or green, meaning it takes the default (not enabled) or is allowed unless disabled by channel permissions. On the individual channel settings you have the grey slash (takes permissions from the server settings), green check (explicitly enabled on the channel), or red X (explicitly disabled on the channel).

    What exactly does the "@" mean in this situation?

    What's the difference between Mute and Deafen?

  • Avatar
    Dannysaur

    @TheMinecrafter2012, sorry for the delayed response. Mute will make it so that all of your voice transmissions are muted. Deafen makes it so that all other voices and sounds from other people cannot be heard.

    Hello :) Are you planning to implement hidden voice channels? That would be very, very useful for me as I do not want to be perceived as "not talking to people" but "off voice" when I am in my core group voice. I of course can make another server and just invite my core but that's a bit of a bulky solution.

    Specifically, a "view" permission for both text and voice channels would be very useful I think - but I'd take the "read" permission equivalent behaviour for the voice channels as I suspect the former would require some reworking :)

    @shivvies, if you want that functionality. Make sure to add it on feedback.discordapp.com
