      VATPAC Launches Discord Trial   04/18/2018

      The VATPAC Board is excited to announce a community trial of Discord as an alternative voice communication client to Teamspeak. The purpose of this trial is to establish whether a new permanent voice client will be used. The trial will last for a period of twelve (12) months during which the Teamspeak and Discord will work side by side to ensure no disruption to any activities. During this time, we encourage the use of both clients so that we can gather as much feedback as possible from a large variety of members.    To assist you in installing and setting up Discord, we have created a tutorial available on the VATPAC website. If you already have Discord, you can connect to our server by clicking here.   The 12-month trial may be reduced or extended by a unanimous Board vote and after consultation with the community through the forums. If the decision to reduce is made, and we officially deem discord to be the preferred chat medium, Teamspeak will nevertheless remain available, with reduced capacity for the whole of the initial 12 month period.    The VATPAC Teamspeak & Discord policy has been updated to reflect these changes and in accordance with the review schedule. Please make yourself familiar with this policy should you choose to connect to one of our community voice services.    If you wish to provide feedback on the trial, you can do so through the feedback form on the VATPAC website using the category 'Community Voice Client Trial'.   Otherwise, if you have any questions, please feel free to approach a staff member or get in touch via email.
