Discord is a communications platform, similar in ways to Slack, but originally designed for gamers. Beyond foundational functionalities like text, video call, voice call, it has tools and bots which make it effective for managing communities. Users can join public or private servers, and within these servers, there are channels (general chat, memes, events, giveaways) grouped in categories (e.g. welcome, main city, voice channels). Permissions can also be set to what different individuals can or cannot see. This makes organization of information and discussions a lot more manageable.
