What is Discord?

Discord is a massively popular instant messaging and conversation platform designed for communities to connect, collaborate, and socialize. It’s free, and hosts more than 250 million users.

What is Hawaii Discord?

Hawaii Discord is a Discord server for people in, from, or in love with Hawaii to talkstory, tell stories, share advice, trade tips, and more. From debating the best place to get ahi poke to getting home improvement advice, from raving about the latest slack key festival to sharing your favorite movies, almost anything goes. (Almost. We have a few rules.)

What topics are discussed?

Like any local gathering, Hawaii Discord conversations can be sprawling and varied. But some common threads include:

  • Interesting local events
  • Cool new apps and tools
  • Science and technology news
  • Social media, blogging, and online publishing
  • Favorite restaurants and dining recommendations

And Slack allows for topical #channels that can be created as needed when a hot topic arises.

How does it work?

You may already be using Discord for your organization, team, or club, in which case, you can skip straight to the Hawaii Discord signup form. If you’re new to Discord, watch this quick video and we’ll see you on the other side:

Hawaii Discord can be accessed via a great mobile app for iPhones or Android phones, a desktop app (for both Windows and Mac), and directly on the web via any modern browser.
