  • Private Discord Voice Channels

    Before when EGC used teamspeak to communicate, private channels could be created/edited at ease. Now that EGC no longer uses ts but now discord, it is near impossible to get a private channel for a selection of people with it being fully private. The donor room is kinda in a way private, but can still be accessed by a large majority of people.

     

    I hope to suggest maybe adding multiple rooms with numbered player limits. E.g. Two rooms with a two player limit, three rooms with a three player limit, four rooms with a four player limit.

    This suggestion may seen untidy and repetitive in the discord, but it is the only possible way I see private channels happen unless there is another way I'm not seeing.
    Feel free to upvote if you think this is a good idea.

    Fiddling with this a little looks pretty good. Having that many voice chat rooms might be a bit excessive, unless it involves the removal of some of the existing rooms, as rarely is it more than 2-3 are used at once. Several multi-purpose chat rooms, some with user limits, would be great, seeing as moving members into a channel bypasses this and if we have enough Admins and such (maybe even media staff) with the "Move Members" voice permission, it could be managed fairly well if people wanted a private room.

     

    The alternative is to role-restrict rooms and introduce temporary roles to allow people to join private channels, but I see this as just being difficult and leading to a massive list of unused voice channels, especially seeing as the discord has far more users than the TS ever did.

    Hi Hazz, your idea is well received. We have wanted to do this for a while, discord is implementing these features in future updates so we are waiting for the necessary permission set to able to achieve what you are requesting.

     

    Right now I do not know of any viable way to create private rooms in discord, the only way I believe is possible right now is by admins creating pre made named rooms and adding user limits to the rooms, this doesn't really make them private and would see a host of unused rooms be made to support this.

     

    If you know of a better way, please let me know. May I also ask in your opinion why you want private rooms and how you will think they will be utilized? 

     

    Regards,

    @LiMaaa Having multiple user limited voice channels would be better than what the channels are now because it is obvious that their are small friend groups in egc ranging from 2 people to like maybe 7-8. Having these new channels would make it easier for people to game in private with their friends without having random users joining and leaving all the time. I find that when I'm gaming and users are joining and leaving, it is distracting, I'm sure others can agree too.

    Also not every channel has to be user limited, there can be like 1 or 2 unlimited user channels.

     

    i"d be happy to talk in discord more with u limaaa about more ideas, opinions and stuff, these are just some of them.

    A great way to fix this problem can be to just have discord channels which hit a maximum of 2 people, 3 people, 4 people and 5 people at once.
