    Considering the volume of active players on the Discord server, I feel we should link to the Discord on the main site.

    I tried to direct someone ingame to the Discord today, and couldn't immediately find a place to direct them to (other than just giving them the invite url) so I ended up giving them the invite URL. Not the end of the world, but it would have been nice to be able to say "Just go to the MapleLegends website and follow the community tab to the Discord".

    I poked around afterward because I couldn't remember how I even found the Discord server in the first place, and I couldn't find links anywhere but Reddit. Maybe there's links elsewhere in the forums, but the difficulty in finding it is a problem on its own, I think.

    I agree that it should at the very least be on the main site, as it's one of the more commonly asked questions by new players. It would be nothing but beneficial to make the most active portion of the community more accessible to players who are seeking it out.

    I would also suggest (being that it's a commonly sought after link) to either add the discord invite to the pinned sticky at the top of the forums page where the MapleLegends Library and latest game version is linked (here)

    or the bottom of the page where the (comparatively, more inactive) Twitter/Steam/Reddit buttons are (here). Something like this for example:

    The more the merrier. It's an important community nexus, so the less friction to entry the better.

    Of course, they then need to also not get scared off by #general, but that's another matter.

    I think it used to be there, but probably removed when last time ML discord was taken down.
    But now the discord has reborn but the link is gone.

    I see. That makes sense. If it isn't heavily advertised for fear of another takedown, that's understandable. I imagine the reports that lead to such takedowns probably come from motivated folk (banned? competitors?) who would find the Discord whether or not it's advertised on the frontpage, though.

    I believe the intent isn't to hide the Discord from those looking to take it down, but to protect the Discord from Discord's own ToS. Since it's against Discord ToS to use a server for illegal activity, it's harder to prove a direct link between ownership and activity if the Discord itself is not advertised on the main website, meaning Discord won't nuke the server again.

    Or something like that.

    This is about the closest answer. This is also the reason why we don't directly link to forum threads, websites, etc in our announcements as well.

    The discord should be renamed to not mention ML IMO.
