HalloweeM 44½: A WeeM-Away

October 30 – November 1, 2020

Join us for our Virtual WeeM via Discord! There’s no RG like this!

Advantages of Our HalloweeM Discord lion Server

  • There’s a  welcome channel that helps people understand the HalloweeM Discord layout. (Or see FAQ "I’m not familiar…".)
  • Flexibility to move yourself among the different "rooms" (aka audio/video channels) to view a presentation or talk, and text-only channels where you chat via typed messages. These channels enable you to participate in tournaments, play online games, or just chat with other attendees in the same channel.

  • You can see who is in any of the channels: everyone is listed individually to the right and the list of audio and text-only channels, including who is in them, is shown on the left. Under Hospitality, there are "Tables" of different sizes and you can audio/video chat with any of the people listed or encourage people to join you at an empty one by messaging them.
  • Under Programs, in the Speaker Room channels, you can see easily which speakers are stream­ing .
  • Under Games and Tournaments, in the find-a-game channel, you can see the list of games and for which ones you need to register (see FAQ "How do I play games…" for list to do so in advance).
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the channel list and you’ll see the SIGs and other common interest group channels which you can join and video chat.
