HalloweeM 44½: A WeeM-Away

October 30 – November 1, 2020

Join us for our Virtual WeeM via Discord! There’s never been an 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. There are also channels named to be "conversion starters", not that there are any restrictions limiting anyone’s ability to go off topic.
  • Under Programs, in the Speaker Room channels, you can see easily which speakers are stream­ing Live.
  • Under Games, 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 the channel list and after Hospitality you’ll see the SIGs and other common interest group channels which you can join and video chat. Some of the SIG leaders have the ability to restrict who joins the channel.
