About our Discord server:

Our community is made up of people like you, who are interested in the ideals of freedom of form, and who are cautiously optimistic that with the right effort, we can solve the challenges and technical limitations to make it possible.

The members of our community are some of the nicest and most considerate people you’ll ever meet – and never cease to amaze us in ingenuity, inquisitiveness, or motivation. They include scientists and engineers, trainees and licensed practitioners, artists, advocates, technicians, legal experts, and entrepreneurs. We are driven to succeed.

At the same time, we appreciate how to have a good time. We’re comfortable with each other, and have a love-hate relationship with puns. A common undercurrent is real motivation and drive to achieve common success – and, just maybe, that’s one of the best ways to make deep, long-lasting friendships. 

We’re eager to share our community with you, but we still have a duty to safeguard the relationships people have already been making in our Discord server. Therefore, our server is invite-only and involves a brief screening process. At this time, we can only invite adults 18 and over. This helps us maintain a professional atmosphere and simplifies our compliance needs. Just review our rules and email us at [email protected], and we can get you started. Please be sure to use the word “Discord” in your email.

Before you begin:

Rules – We want to ensure the atmosphere on this server is professional, courteous, and welcoming for all. Therefore, we ask you to review and abide by our rules.

Reasonable Accommodation – We will be very happy to provide certain reasonable accommodations for our guests or personnel. If you have a disability and need to request such an accommodation, let us know and we’ll do our best.

Pronouns – For pronoun roles, please ask a mod when joining the server! We’re very happy to give you one that reflects your identity.

We hope you enjoy your time here. When you join, please say hi in the #introduce-yourself channel, and help us get to know you.
