Since the beginning, we’ve been using the
#announcements text channel to give you guys the latest pieces of information and to keep a trace of every major change.
And this is pretty good! It allows Mods to make new announcements easily, and it enables members to find those announcements conveniently, right on the server!
#announcements falls short every time an update gets multiple paragraphs long, Discord was created for short messages, the markup options are very limited for long posts and having to scroll them up is a pain. The text is small and tight, which is great for messages but terrible for lengthy updates.
And as we’re going to be expanding beyond Discord (blog post on that soon), we can’t continue to publish important updates exclusively there.
