Chat with other QED attendees on Discord
One of the best things about attending QED is the social side – from chatting and hanging out in the bar and social spaces, to sharing thoughts digitally with other attendees during talks and panels.
In previous years, to help you find and chat with other QED attendees, we had a dedicated Slack channel. This year, however, we’ve partnered with our good friends at Skeptics in the Pub Online, who have created a number of QED spaces in their highly-active Discord server – meaning that if you get chatting to someone at QED, you’ll be able to continue the conversation long after the weekend is over.
To join in the conversation during QED, attendees simply need to download the Discord app – or use the web app – and visit sitp.online/discord.
From there, you’ll be asked to accept the rules of the channel, and then you’ll be taken to a handy QED homepage explaining the various channels, how they’re moderated, and how the server works outside of QED weekend. You’ll also see a quick beginner’s guide to Discord, for those using for the first time.
The QED channels on the Skeptics in the Pub Online Discord server are open now, so feel free to join in and get the conversation started – you don’t need to wait until the weekend!
See you all very, very soon!
