Discord Deplatforms FTL - How to get your crypto out from the tip bot.

September 14th, 2020 - 5:40pmby FTL_Adminin

Well, we knew this day was coming. Earlier this year the Discord admins targeted our server and claimed we'd violated their terms for "cyberbullying or targeted harassment of an individual or community" but when I asked their support division for an explanation of what specifically was claimed against us, they refused to provide it and just told me to "be vigilant of this issue going forward" and that they'd let me if if any other issues occurred. Well, no one let me know of anything and today the Discord server for LRN.FM and FTL disappeared without warning. Trying to submit a support request led me to a blank page earlier, so I have responded to the email thread I had with them from their previous warning. I suspect they won't explain what the alleged violation was, but will report to you if anything develops.

Meanwhile, you may be a Discord user who is wondering a few things, namely:

1. If you had crypto in the tip bot, how can you retrieve it? Here's how. Join the Tip.cc Discord server: https://discord.gg/Ta4Mxnx and in the server privacy settings make sure you can receive DMs from the server's members. Then send a message to the tip.cc bot on the server and you can check your balances and conduct withdrawals from there.

2. Where else can you chat about Free Talk Live and LRN.FM stuff? We'd been working on a self-hosted solution but that's still on the horizon and I'd hoped Discord would hold out until we could launch that. We've got something else in the works that hopefully I'll be able to announce within 24 hours. Meanwhile you can still chat in our DLive and Twitch chat rooms. However what I should be able to announce in my next email will be a multi-room server solution that is like Discord but open source.

Stay tuned and thank you for your support.
