Join the Locals Lounge Discord
Here’s a quick guide to help you get oriented to our online community hub. Discord is an online space where users can have conversations, post links, coordinate events, and lots more. If you’ve ever used Slack, you’ll find many aspects of Discord pretty familiar.
If you’re brand new to Discord, here’s a handy “How To” video that walks new users through some of the basics.
Getting started on our Discord Server:
1. Install the Discord app on your desktop and/or your phone:
2. Open the app and create your free account by following the prompts (tip: we recommend using a similar name to your Instagram account. You can customize your username on each server you join)
3. Follow this link to get invited to the Locals Lounge server
4. Agree to the Code of Conduct, then answer a few questions on the #getting-started channel to get access to the other server channels
Finding what you're looking for:
Once you’ve created your account and filled in the info on #getting-started, it’s time to start connecting with the community! We offer a few different channels that might interest you, depending on what you want to do:
