BMHS PrideTime Reporter
Recently, two CGS students co-created a discord server for the school that could hopefully benefit CGS in the future.
While Discord is normally used for gaming and online chatting with friends, one now-admin (Madison Kostuk-Krepps ‘19) of the server came up with the idea as she had experience on working with discord chats. She suggested to her friend (Mason Lapine) that they should create an online bot, she states “we’ve been the only two working on it since.”
Pridetime asked what cool things does the server have to offer? Within the chat, one can play music through the chat AI bot and even color code your text. There are also three separate chats for the different CGS languages and a general chat where everyone can talk with each other.
There is even one chat solely for, yes, memes. However, because it is supposed to be for school, it is to be kept family-friendly. That means no cursing, or anything inappropriate!
The launched server doesn’t have an exact date as it might have been during the first quarter or even an earliest time during the second quarter of school. As of now, we were informed that there is no set place to distribute the code that allows you to join. Though the plan seems to be during an upcoming CGS house.
Here are some questions from the interview with one of the admins. We hope you find this just as interesting as I did:
Jennifer: How do you think this could help CGS?
Madison: I think it could allow kids from different classes get to know one another, or request some help for their language, even a general place to just hang out. Announcements can be made for upcoming events, so everyone can be in the loop.
Jennifer: What do you hope the end goal of the chat will be?
Madison: A way to interact with other students outside of school time, be it for general conversation or for help with languages. I just want it to be a safe and happy place, a difficult task for sure, but I can always try.
Jennifer: What would you say to encourage CGS students who have not heard about the chat to join?
Madison: Join us and make some friends!!! I hope that this can be a place for all who want to be in it, and that there can be something for everyone!
