How to find your way around the WHALE channels for VISITORS
Visitor Role 🌱
At first you will only have access to information channels, #general (the main channel for conversation), and the bot channels.
The channels visible to the visitor role (as shown above) may either be
- 🌱 informational sections where you can view content — but cannot post; or
- 💬 chat or communication sections where you can interact with other members and service bots.
These text channels are denoted by a # with a lock in the corner — meaning that the channel requires certain roles to access.
You may also notice channels with a speaker symbol. These can be either special information channels, or channels where you can connect and listen when there is a live stream. The main channel for listening to streams or watching video is called “Connect to audio + video”, and you may access it when there is an event programmed.
🌱 Introduction: (Read-only) Allow us to briefly introduce ourselves!
🌱 Rules: (Read-only) Read and abide by these server rules.
🌱 Contact Us: (Read-only) Do you have a support issue, a question or comment, or just need to talk to the team in private? Press the button to open a ticket. Your ticket will open in a separate channel that only you and moderators can see.
🌱 Updates: (Read-only) The WHALE team will post notices here periodically. If you see there are unread messages there, be sure to take a look!
💬 General: (Chat) Read the #rules before posting! You may chat all things broadly relevant here. Digital art, crypto regulations, the metaverse, Ethereum, alt chains, NFT’s, artists, $WHALE. We have dedicated channels for some of these topics — please explore and find the areas of WHALE that interest you the most.
❌No posting links unless you are a H2P member (Dolphin, Shark, Whale), and it’s a genuine link to a well-known account or resource. No spam or shilling.
✅Personal/general conversation is allowed, but please keep it ‘light’ and short. The WHALE #General chat should remain on-topic and relevant to newcomers and Maiden Voyagers alike. In-depth discussions that are not relevant to our other WHALE members should be taken to DM’s, or #off-topic.
💬 Bot Command: (Chat) Remember to always use this channel to call the various bot functions unrelated to the conversations in progress in other channels. Check out the Bot-Guide channel below to see what you can do!
🤖 Bot Guide: (Read-only) This channel will show you the commands available to your role-level. Higher roles grant higher access to the bots.
💬 Stream Text Chat: (Chat) This channel is typically closed when there is no live show. When there is a live WHALE event in discord, the channel will be unlocked and you can participate in our events via text, emoji and gif. Please remain on-topic in respect of our guests and audience.
Connect to Audio and Video: (AV Channel) Connect to this channel to join the live stream. Events may either be audio only, or audio and video. You can ‘pop’ the video out to watch separately while still participating in the Stream Text Chat.
Where to claim the Member role
🔑 Unlock Benefits: (Read-only) If you like what you see so far, you can choose to unlock even more sections, channels, and benefits! Pick up a free Membership (member) role here.
The JOIN WHALE section, #⚡Unlock Benefits channel appears at the bottom of the channel list.
Click the WHALE emoji option in this channel to claim your MEMBER role.
