Create step-by-step interactive guides for how to use Discord

    I think this is a marvellous idea and would really be useful for new discord users.

    Thank you mesub, this idea is something that I've been considering for some time, but never got the chance to write until now.

    It's inspired by two things in particular:

    • Experience I've gained from showing a lot of users how to use various Discord features and setting up servers
    • A project I'm currently doing at work which aims to create step-by-step guides for a variety of purposes to benefit charities

    I often come up with new thoughts and ideas based on my experiences, but even now one of the biggest barriers that a new Discord user faces, is that you're effectively "dropped in at the deep end" without much in the way of a welcome or guidance about what to do next.

    Support articles are useful, but they don't have much value if I don't know they exist! So that's where this one comes in

    I love this idea to pieces, and I truly hope it gets noticed!

    Thanks for your support!

    There would probably have to be one or two minor limits on such a feature to help prevent abuse or because of some other reason, but pretty much everything in the existing support articles could be transformed into something much more powerful

    This is exactly what I need for new server members! I’ll be creating server specific ones in the coming months

    Edit: by server specific, I mean my own JA-ES server so they won’t be available outside my server

    Hm.. have a look at the support site (blog)

    I just signed up today, and am extremely overwhelmed. I do NOT know how to use this site at all for help or support, or even just setting up the simplest things. IS there a tutorial anywhere that won't freak me out? I am 65 and am mildly technologically impaired ;-)   I probably won't even be able to find my way back here to look for an answer!
