Agender Chat on Discord now has temporary message history!

Instead of chat messages clearing whenever you close out of Discord, lose your internet connection, or tab away to a different server, now there is always at least 5 minutes of the most recent conversation available for viewing! During chat hours, the history lasts 10 minutes. This way everyone can stay involved in the discussion, regardless of which device they’re using and in spite of shaky internet connectivity. At the same time, longer term chat history stays protected from view, so we can feel comfortable choosing to share sensitive or personal stories with our friends in chat. 

New commands:

!topic – Posts the current weekly topic in the channel for everyone to see.
!privacy – Shows you how long messages are staying visible.

Special thanks to our dear friend Flickwire for creating the bot (github here), and to our new tech (pictured above) powered by Patreon supporters. Thank you!

Come visit us in chat to check out the new tech!

Welcome New Followers!

We’re so glad you’re here. To get the most out of Agender Chat, here’s some info about how we do things (under a cut for length):

P.S. Longtime followers and current chat members might want to skim through this, too. Agender Chat is always growing!

Chat Stuff:

How Discord Chat Works
The Agender Chat Discord Channel is always open, 24/7/365, for live chat. You do not need a Discord account to use it. You can run Discord in your web browser or download the Discord client to your computer or mobile device.

When you click the link to join, you will be sent to the #welcome-circle channel. You automatically can read the messages in #announcements and review the #rules channel. However, for access to view and type in our #main-chat or listen/talk in our voice channel (i.e. to contribute and participate), you need to reach out to a moderator via private message (PM) first. You’ll see their names listed on the right hand side in the #welcome-circle. If no moderators are online when you join – we’re sorry. Please try again later or come back during chat hours!

Chat Hours
We offer organized times throughout the week when you can be sure there are people in chat – including at least one moderator. These are the best opportunities to join chat for the first time. We begin each session with our weekly topic, but that is meant as a conversation starter, not a limitation. Also, while it is common to discuss our personal experiences and identities, nobody is required to talk or share if they would rather not. Feel free to suggest topics!

Check out our calendar page for the current schedule and upcoming topics. You can even add our Google calendar to your own account to help remind you.

Chat Rules
Agender Chat is open to everyone. Since we welcome all ages, please keep your discussion content roughly PG-13. Remember that you can always use the private message (PM) feature if you want to. Full rules available here.

Blog Stuff:

Agender Selfie Sunday
On Sundays (relative to USA time zones), we post submissions from our followers to the blog and reblog awesome agender content. Feel free to share a selfie, a photo of your pet, your recent art project, positivity messages, etc. Send in your submission anytime, and you’ll see it appear on the blog on a Sunday!

Resources
We have a resources page. From there you can navigate to crisis help, our Gender FAQ, past answered asks by topic, positivity posts, and so on. If there’s a certain resource you would like to see more of, please let us know!

Social Media
We’re on Facebook and Twitter. Feel free to connect with us! Keep an eye out for our upcoming Patreon page, too!

Questions or Feedback?
Check out our community info page, or contact us.

Thank you for following and enjoy your stay!

Patreon – Coming Soon!

agenderchat:

Agender Chat’s Patreon is launching later this month. You might be wondering…

Why are we seeking financial support?

Running Agender Chat takes a lot of time and dedication from our moderation team. We have so many ideas for improving and expanding our community, but without financial support, it’s hard to get those ideas off the ground. With help from Patreon funding, we want to:

  • Produce more original content (positivity messages, educational info, FAQs, answering asks, etc.)
  • Improve our Discord technology, especially for mobile users.
  • Cover costs like web hosting and tech hardware
  • Build greater engagement on social media (on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook).
  • Reach more new people to grow our community.
  • Offer giveaways with gender affirming supplies for our followers.
  • Launch Agender Chat merch (T-shirts, buttons, etc.).

We’ll be announcing the Patreon launch date soon, so keep an eye out!
