The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section.
Proposals 1.1, 1.5, 2.2, 2.3.1 and 2.4 have passed. Proposal 2.1 for a FAQ has not passed but instead there is support for an #server-info channel which has passed. Regarding proposal 1.6 which calls for establishing an audio channel, there is mixed support so a channel will be created on an experimental basis and if it is not used it will be removed.

Anything not covered will remain in line with status quo.
The following page is a voting section to determine the changes to the discord server following a consultation.
Any user is free to add their own questions within reason and may adapt the existing question up until the RfC starts. Sections should only be closed after that point by someone with the ability to implement the changes (even if it is against) unless the discussion gets out of hand. Threaded discussion is permitted but if it gets long may be moved to the comments section or Talk Page.
Oppose This section (and probably others) proposes that the same information be available in multiple formats. Some questions come to mind: Who's going to keep the Discord copy aligned with future changes to FAQ? If the versions differ, which is authoritative? What do we do with a good-faith user acting in accordance with an out-of-date duplicate? Anyone should be free to write his own summary of Miraheze essentials, with links to the official ones. But the official ones should continue to be wiki pages on Meta, Miraheze being a wiki farm and not a chat farm. Spıke(talk)20:54 22-Aug-2019
I think a #info channel for basic information and some useful links is more productive than a #faq channel. --Dark Dragoon(talk) 11:27, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
I think this is a solid idea. Other Discord servers I'm in have this type of "info" channel, often called #server-info, which provides a brief overview of the server as well as links to helpful related resources. Something like this, perhaps? -- Elaeagnifolia (talk) 20:26, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Weak support I personally support the idea of splitting #general and #help chatter, but I can also see the arguments for opposing the split due to not enough traffic. -- Elaeagnifolia (talk) 20:26, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Oppose Was not sure about this but finally have decided to vote against, because currently #general is mostly concentrated on helping people, and #irc-relay is more useful for getting help at this time. Reception123 (talk) (C) 14:11, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Abstain Meh, if there will be a #general and a #offtopic I think it is unnecessary, but if a #offtopic is not created, yes, because maybe the #general some users want to use it for offtopic things. --Dark Dragoon(talk) 11:31, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
Abstain Seems like it could be useful, but I'm unfamiliar with how the technical logistics would work and would rather just use Phabricator for reporting. -- Elaeagnifolia (talk) 20:26, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Support I think it's good to be able to also have off-topic conversations not related to Miraheze, but they should definitely be held somewhere else (not in #general). Reception123 (talk) (C) 14:11, 16 August 2019 (UTC)
Support It may not be a frequent occurrence, but there are people who like to speak in Discord, so I think it's good to create it. I also agree with the text channel to be able to publish things (text or multimedia) during a conversation. --Dark Dragoon(talk) 11:39, 18 August 2019 (UTC)
Support I see no harm in creating one just in case for the users who do prefer to use Discord's audio features. -- Elaeagnifolia (talk) 20:26, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
Support I think a channel where the information on how to get verified is pinned would be useful. Personally when I went through the verification process, I also found it helpful looking at how other users formatted their posts to make sure I did things right; however, I had to do that via the Discord search function because there was so much other bot spam in the channel. I agree with the opposed opinions that the channel wouldn't get much traffic, but I see the benefit of it as more separating it from the current traffic of the bot channel. -- Elaeagnifolia (talk) 20:26, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
