Why Discord?

Discord is an All-in-one voice and text chat program which allows us to communicate with each other by voice, by channel chats in the voice, by text in the public chat and by in talking to people in private. This new program will not only let us voice and chat on a new level, but will allow the staff team to be more readily available. Either though the #help chat or by private messaging them. Not to mention you get some pretty great features, which can be further explained here: Discord Features

For you lovers of TeamSpeak who are disappointed in this transition, know that Discord has a lot of new things to offer. And with what's planned in the upcoming updates, it's definitely set out to be something great, something you don't want to miss out on. Give it time, Discord will surely grow on you 

1. Discord Web Client

It is highly recommended that you use the Desktop client instead of the web client for using Discord. It can and will have its limitations that will prevent you from getting the 100% optimal use.

Step 1: Locating Discord
The Discord module is on the left side of the home page.
Click 'connect' on the module to get connected.

Step 2: Joining Discord
If it's your first time with Discord, you will see this screen from previously clicking 'connect'.
Enter any name you wish, perhaps a name people will recognize you as.

Enter your Email and Password. Click done to save. (An email and password that you will use to login)

Now just verify you Email and congrats you now have an account on Discord.

Since you're on the web version, you'll have to always reconnect by clicking the 'connect' button on the Discord Module that's on the home page. At that point it'll either let you go in right away or it will prompt you to login with the credentials you used to create your account.

 Discord Desktop Client

As said earlier, it is highly recommended that you use the Desktop Client. If you're sticking to the Web Client, scroll down a bit.

Step 1: Downloading and installing the Desktop Client
Hopefully you're still on the web version. If not, at least you know how to get there now.  
Go to the bottom left of your screen, where your name is located.

Click download apps.

This will appear.

In the voice tab

You can set your input and output device to whatever you use, but in most cases it should work on default.

If you want to use push to talk.
Under 'Input Mode', click the drop down box and change it to push to talk.
While selecting the key you wish to activate.
Then click 'Done'.

In The Notifications Tab

You can uncheck or leave checked any of the sounds you desire.

Incoming and outgoing ring deal with people calling you on Discord.

If you're using Push To Talk, 'PTT Activate', and 'PTT Deactivate' will be the most annoying for you, if left checked.
When the 'Enable desktop notifications' box is checked it will ring your desktop every time a message is sent on the Discord server. Unless your notifications have been modified here.
