Staying in Touch

As you all know, the Venice Unleashed forums are the default place to go to for support, announcements, feedback or just general discussion.
Chances are you already have an account here, too, so participating in discussions is as easy as it gets.

However this is not the only way of communicating with the Emulator Nexus community and the staff team!
A bit further down we'll introduce a new platform for real-time chat. But first, let's take a look at what existing channels there are.

Twitter
Over at @VeniceUnleashed you can follow important real-time announcements as we make them.
Especially useful to find out when events like the Open Bughunting Seasons are going live, when a critical update is pushed or when a server is going to restart after maintenance.

Reddit
Our subreddit /r/veniceunleashed serves as an alternative platform to the forums.
You already know reddit and don't want to get used to phpBB? Head over to reddit and ask your questions there!

IRC
The IRC is a realtime chat service that we've been using since 2012. It's so far been the best way of getting support as fast as possible, providing users with a way of chatting with staff members live.
For information on how to join, click here.

However we're happy to announce that there is now an even better alternative.

Introducing: Discord
Discord provides everything that IRC does, and much more.
For instance, here are a few of Discord's features:

  • Normal text chat as well as channels for voice chat
  • Beautiful web interface (no need to download any kind of client)
  • Really easy to use
  • Direct messaging between users
  • Automatic embedding of images/links
  • @mention feature

If you want to see it with your own eyes, need support or just want to say hi, click here to join us on Discord.

In order to make the transition from IRC to Discord easier for everyone, we've set up a two-way relay between IRC and Discord so you can read everything that's posted on the other platform.
