GitHub Discord Server

Hey guys,
Recently I was in search of a Discord server focused around GitHub and open-source development, but failed to do so.
Therefore, I took it upon myself to create a Discord server about the aforementioned topic and thought this would be a nice place to share for those looking for a support forum with a more real-time nature.
You can find an invite link to the Discord server within the organisation README of the community’s GitHub organisation (https://github.com/gh-discord).

I hope to see some of you in the Discord server where I hope you’ll have a great time.

P.S. if this goes against the rules in anyway, please politely let me know and I’ll remove the post. Thanks guys!

I can’t speak for GitHub, but I think you might want to make it clear that it’s a user group, not an official GitHub thing, see also: GitHub Logos and Usage · GitHub

Have fun! :smiley_cat:

Right, I’ve emailed GitHub about this and haven’t received a reply for a few weeks, so I thought I’d just go with it. Any suggestions on how to make it more “unofficial” would be appreciated. Thanks!

Most importantly, don’t use the GitHub logo as yours. :wink:

And also make it clear in the language. If you say “GitHub Discord” it sound like it’s something by GitHub. “User group” is a traditional term to describe groups for users of a particular thing, without speaking for the thing in general. So maybe you could use GUG (GitHub User Group), or make up something with similar meaning.

Alright, plans:

  1. Make a better custom logo
  2. Change the name, I’m thinking something like “Git and GitHub”
    Thanks for the advice :grin:

I get a 404 clicking that link. Is already abandoned? GitHub needs an official discord or slack presence, imo, but i’ll take an unofficial one if that’s all that’s available.
