The United Africa Discord Server! Come Join Now!steemCreated with Sketch.

in #steemit4 years ago

Steemit chat has had its limitations on the growth of the community. With many users not using the same username as their steemit username, as well as the struggle of having to use a mobile device of open it up and use it.

Having this server for everyone to connect to will help to avoid many problems that steemit.chat can't fix. So here is the information you will need about the server.

If you do not stay in Africa, do not bother trying to join. There are some exceptions, but do not try your luck.

The Goal:

The goal is to have all the subcommunities under one big community, this will allow users to interact better with each other as well as make their life easier by only needing to go to on place to get all the information they need.

I want to see separate channels for each subcommunity, this will only happen in the future as each subcommunity grows and develops. Each subcommunity will have their leaders to manage their channels as well as their members.

Let us unite the whole of Africa for a brighter future and a brighter steemit for all.

Our first community.

The Kitchen: For the Foodies by the Foodies...African Original Food Content Authors Only!!! Copy Pasta is not welcome here!!!

This is one of our first subcommunities that have arrived on the discord server so far, it is run by @progressivechef who is a really awesome food loving guy.

Join United Africa on Discord: https://discord.gg/Q3uZG2U

Improvements to the server will be made. So stay tuned.

For those wondering about the steemit.chat community and channels. They will still be running as usual till a time that they are no longer used.

Sort:  

@dragonslayer109 - This is a great next step to empower community interaction even more. I will try to spend as much time I can interacting in the discord channel. Let us make this a very vibrant community!

Thanks for all the initiative for Africa. Kudos. Upvoted full.

Regards,

@vm2904

Will be interesting to see how fast this grows.

Yes. I think the connectivity will play some part. However, I am seeing a lot of members from different parts of Africa getting on Discord channels. That is encouraging. Perhaps, some may not be able to use voice rooms or video streaming but basic connectivity would hopefully work well.

Regards,

@vm2904

People from Africa will help each outhers - upvote posts, resteem and follow, this is an intention to do this chat?

Great discord server. Keep up the good work.

Too much blessings in one post!

Seems people really don't chat in the steemit chat group.

Thanks for the leadership,we are already liking the Discord Server.

One of these rules is interesting,you are very funny!
So for all guys planning on doing bad stuff you have them covered too!

If you feel like doing something bad that is not mentioned in the rules, do not do it, as you will be braking this rule and will be banned.

Hahaha I had to add that rule to it ;)

This is indeed a good initiative, always doing more for Africa and also promoting Steemit, thanks @dragonslayer109

Thanks for sharing learning more and more as I go with steemit and steemit chat looks promising . Would love Africa on board they have a vast growth in mobile phones over the years and this can intergrate perfectly.

Woo-hoo! Thanks so much mate for making this happen! Looking forward to see the group grow bigger and the start of some new sub communities soon!
You rock mate!
