Asking for Help

We're present on multiple platforms. You will typically get the fastest response on Discord.

Discord Guidelines

We encourage you to stay around for a while after you ask a question. Listen to the various discussions in different threads. Someone will likely have an answer to your question once they check in. If you don't get a response someone might not know the answer or the person who knows it is hasn't read it yet.

To assist those looking for help, please make use of the off-topic channel to lower the noise for others. This also helps reduce the backlog so that others can catch up.

If you want to draw someone's attention, type their name to ping them. Don't be rude though.

To prevent flooding the channel, please also use a service like instead of pasting your logs directly.

You can also set the Discord notifications setting to “Mentions only” so that you will only be disturbed when someone writes your name.

Staying Safe on Discord

Asking for assistance can result in private messages from scammers pretending to be "admins" or "support staff." Stay in the public threads so that Admins can moderate conversations. Be wary of sharing any private information.

If anyone approaches you in a private message:

  • Assume they're a scammer
  • Check if they have an admin role
  • Never disclose your wallet information
  • Never click on shared links
  • Notify an Admin so they can be banned
