Hello, and welcome to the community if you're new!
This thread is going to be all about the Discord server for VocaVerse Network, so if you haven't joined yet and are just finding this forum on its own, feel free to join it first here: VocaVerse Network

If you've done that now or are coming here from there, the next thing you should know is that
all of the rules linked in this text apply to the Discord as well unless stated otherwise here.
Also keep in mind that unlike the forums, VVN staff reserve the right to ban members preemptively if said user is known to have committed bannable actions in other chat groups/forums, or if it's evident that users are likely planning to break rules or take part in a raid.
Action may also be taken if other users complain about receiving unwanted private messages from you.

When you first join the Discord, you'll be in a channel called "#start-here".
You may not be able to post or see all the channels right away. If that is the case,
please message one of the mods or admins and we'll adjust your settings to let you in.
Welcome to our Discord Server!
Please note: Discord's official guidelines still apply of course as well.

Discord Channel Rules & Tips

Main rules:

1. Please avoid spamming. This includes using mentions (@ name/role) a high amount of times, sending messages a significant amount of times within a minute, and advertising heavily without permission or in the appropriate channel.

2. Let's be respectful! Please avoid arguing with others, or making an attempt to make others distress. It's okay to have disagreements, but please do so in a respectful manner. Do not attempt to force your opinion on someone! If necessary, you can carry your discussion through DM.

3. Please keep your posts relevant! If you're ever unsure of what a channel is for, or where to set your message, you can always ask one of our Mods or Admins, or check out the pins! You're welcome to read through this thread, hopefully you'll find exactly what you need then!

4. Use common sense, and have fun sharing your love and passion for Vocaloids and voice synthesizers with other fans and creators!

You are encouraged to visit the #bot-room to receive a role! This will help users know what you like to do in the community!

General Chat
You're allowed to post just about anything here, even if it's already been posted elsewhere - as long as you aren't interrupting
a conversation already taking place or spamming.
If you have an image or link to share, please keep it to one at a time. If a conversation is going on already, look through the other
channels first and see if it's something you can post there instead if it doesn't add to that conversation.
You are discouraged from discussing subjects related to: "the chat is dead", topics fitting for #vvn-support, links without context, and hateful or disrespectful discussion about someone whether this person is in the server or not.
As with the common rules, please avoid NSFW, sexual, political, anti-religious, or sensitive topics and imagery.
Self-advertising embeds are discouraged from being in the #general-chat channel. You are encouraged, instead, to use the #promotion-channel found in the Off Topic category. You can discuss your services and what you offer, or about your work.
For sharing artwork, you are encouraged instead to use #your-art, also to avoid your work being lost! If it is not Vocaloid-related, please use #other-original-art, or if it's a drawing you did not create, please use #fanart

Read the pinned message for more information!


Vocaloid Chat
This channel is focused on topics related to Vocaloid, UTAU, CeVIO, Synth V, and all kinds of voice synthesizers around the world! It's the perfect place to talk about a more specific subject rather than in #general_chat

The same rules for #general_chat, our main chat channel, apply to this channel as well. Please stay respectful and avoid sensitive or inappropriate materials!
If a topic is already taking place (such as a certain subject continues without an over 5 minute pause), you can look through other channels and see if your topic is more fitting there! You can try having a discussion in #general_chat. Or, be patient for a chance to speak your subject.
If you are looking for assistance with certain software, please be patient! You may use the more dedicated channel to receiving help: #technical-help. Everyone has a variety of schedules, but we hope you get your response soon. You are also welcome to use the Forums as well to create a thread and look for help!

Technical Help
This channel is dedicated to helping users receive technical help or advice - whether it be related to using the Vocaloid software, DAW, and more!
Remember, this channel is for receiving help, please user the other channels such as #general_chat to carry a more casual conversation

If a topic is already taking place (such as a certain subject continues without an over 5 minute pause), it may be best to either try another channel or be patient. Otherwise, you may miss your chance to receive assistance, or disrupt a current helpful session.
If you are looking for assistance with certain software, please be patient! Everyone has a variety of schedules, but we hope you get your response soon. Like the Vocaloid Chat channel, you are also welcome and encouraged to use the Forums!

Events
Let's share about upcoming events and concerts together! Make plans or learn about new events!

Remember to keep personal or sensitive information private. Sharing information such as addresses or names will put your safety at risk!
This channel can be used for all kinds of subjects: events, concerts, conventions, and more!
Make sure all information is Vocaloid or voice-synthesizer related in some way! Notice a Vocaloid producer appearing at an event? You can share it here!
You can share events or discuss about them together! These include official events or fan events, including ones you create.
Remember, you can always check our News thread on VVN to share there or learn more!

VVN News
This channel is dedicated to sharing the latest news from Vocaloid News Network! (vocaloidnews.net)
Stay informed about the latest updates and changes taking place!

Enjoy the game and have fun!
These channels are for original works only, as well as for our artists and content creators!

Collab and Commission
This channel is for discussing collaborations or commissions: whether is be to look for someone to contact or work with, discuss a future project together, or for sharing your commission prices
Please do not advertise your commissions without having an organized pricing guideline to be linked. It will be helpful to future clients!
This channel is ideal for group projects! You are welcome to discuss with your group here or, after recruiting your team, discussing more in depth outside this channel.
This channel includes both volunteer and paid work. If someone refuses your offer, please be respectful of your decision. If a team is looking for volunteers without payment, please be respectful of their decision. You can always refuse or negotiate a compromise together!


Work in Progress
Are you working on a project? Maybe you want to share it here? Show us what you have been working on! It's a chance to either give encouragement, or be encouraged!

Please don't post more than 2 things (songs, images, etc) at once before someone else can or within an hour.
Please focus on sharing your progress and not too much on conversation. If the current topic is starting to grow in length, it is recommended you continue in another channel or place.
Please be mindful of critique! Unless the user does state they are looking for criticism, be sure to ask the user first if they are interested in hearing your feedback before giving critique, and offer to speak in DM rather than publicly in the channel.


Your Songs
This is the place to come to share your original song releases! It's time to announce your new songs for the community to listen and support!

Please don't post more than 1 song at once before someone else can or within 24 hours.
You are allowed to share your song from YouTube, NicoNico, Clyp.it, Soundcloud, and more! You are also allowed to share more than one link at once, you are encouraged to use brackets <> for some of the other links if there is more than 1 link in your post.
Avoid posting direct downloads to your songs! That will make you miss out on your chance to gain support and a larger following!
Please do not share if your song is not officially complete or is only a preview. For works that are still in progress, you can share it in #work-in-progress!


Your Art
Calling all artists! This the channel for sharing your Vocaloid or voice-synthesizer related work! Come here and let us see your creations! You may also discuss a piece of artwork posted here as well.

If you have a story or content of significant length, please use a link to a thread rather than copying and pasting the entire contents here. A good rule to keep in mind is if content takes more than 70 lines, it may be too long.
This channel is dedicated to writing about Vocaloid, voice-synthesizer or utaite content, whether it be lyrics for a potential project or a script about Vocaloid technology.
Please be mindful of critique! Unless the member has already requested for critique, be sure to ask the member first if they are interested in hearing your feedback before giving critique, and offer to speak in DM rather than publicly in the channel.

Here, share released songs by your favorite producers, or some songs that you like!
Please avoid posting more than 2 things at once before someone else can within an hour.


Voca-EDM-Pop/EDM
A lot of things can be considered pop and have pop in the title to be honest and fair -
gauze pop, dream pop, pop punk, avant-garde pop, but none of that is what this channel is for.
This channel is for the kind of music that might have a chance at being played in a trendy
store and is kept simple enough for the common listener to get into - mainly electronic.
I would also include music that could be used in a modern summer EDM music festival.
That includes things like "dnb", "dubstep", etc.


Voca-Kawaii-Cute
Because of that, I would say to put more priority in posting here if it sounds like something
you might be afraid of hearing in public with its over-saturation of cuteness. A lot of it
will use chiptune influenced and simplistic sound design. Think happy occasional "8-bit sounds".


Voca-Kowai-Spooky
Artists like Creep-P, as a more extreme example with kowai being basically the opposite of kawaii. You don't want to get those mixed up! A lot of the time, these traits such as "dark" or "edgy" can fall under the categories below still, so only post them here if they don't seem to apply to any of those below.


Voca-Funk-Blues-Rock
For music that has rough vocals, but not too rough. Classic "Elvis-age" rock, but not hard rock.
Things that include sounds like that funk bass and harmonicas.


Voca-Soft-Downtempo
Music you can really chill or relax to. Smooth and creamy or rich and deep,
maybe even with slow breakbeats or a classic 80s aesthetic. This isn't for just songs
that are slow, but songs that you can lay back and relax to as well usually.


Voca-Shout-Core-Metal
If the Vocaloid is using a power voicebank or screaming, that's a good indicator to start with.
Does the majority of the song feature guitars with distortion? If so, it probably goes here.
Artists like Utsu-P and Yuyoyuppe are welcome.


Voca-Hard-Techno-Rave
If it's UK Hardcore style, make sure it isn't something that'd fall under "Voca-Kawaii/Cute" first.
If it's something like dubstep or dnb, it should be in a style that predates 2010.
If you're not sure, it probably goes in "Voca-EDM/Pop". Things like Nightcore
remixes are not allowed. If it has guitars, it also probably shouldn't be here.
Metal genres with "core" still go in "Voca-Power/Rock/Metal".


Voca-Orchestral-World
This one shouldn't be too difficult to understand.
I would say songs that only use an instrument like piano
should also go here. If it's jazz and doesn't fall under any previous
categories, it could also go here. If it focuses on usage of foreign
and/or obscure instruments, it could probably also go here.
If it has distorted guitar or electronic sounds and influences though,
you might want to check elsewhere. Most of Masa's music for
example would still fall under "Voca-Hard/Techno/Rave".


Voca-Experimental
You could also call this the "other" section I suppose.
Check all other categories first before coming here.
Genres like noise, speedcore, breakcore can be here
if you manage to find any. It doesn't have to be electronic
either though and can be something that sounds really strange.


Non-Vocal-Synth
For all the music that doesn't feature a vocal synth or Vocaloid.
Sorry, this is a Vocaloid server. We're not going to have
a category for everything like we do for vocal synth music,
but we will try to meet you halfway if you want to post music
that doesn't feature a synth singer. This area is for any music
like that of whatever genre. We may link to other servers we
can approve of for this, but our main focus is vocal-synth music...
no plans on giving this its own sub-categories.
MMD Non-PV
This channel is for sharing MMD videos or images that are not necessarily music video-focused or mainly dancing. An example would be a drama-centered MMD video. Have you come across a funny MMD video recently? Here is the perfect place to share!

Please don't post more than 2 things at once before someone else can or within an hour.
You are encouraged to give credit to the creator of the image or video. If the link you share leads to the artist's official upload/allows you to access their profile, you do not need to write credit.
For a more PV or music video focused MMD video that you did not create, you may share it in the #music_videos channel.


Video
This channel is for sharing Vocaloid or voice synthesizer videos: whether it be dance videos, MMD, informing, or more! Specifically ones not created by you. What are some videos that inspire you or you were impressed with? Now's the time to share it!

Please don't post more than 2 things at once before someone else can or within an hour.
This channel is aimed more for videos you did not create.
If you have a video you created that is a music video, animation, or MMD, please check out the channels under the VVN Creatives category.


Fanart
This channel is for sharing Vocaloid or voice synthesizer Fanart not created by you.
Please don't post more than 2 things at once before someone else can or within an hour.
If the link you share leads to the artist's official upload/allows you to access their profile, you do not need to write credit.
If you are only sharing a picture without a link to the source or artist, we encourage you to share the artist. If you cannot find the artist, you can ask for assistance or use sources such as SauceNAO
Promotion Channel
The place to go for sharing links to advertise! You can advertise things like livestreams, stores, commissions, server links, and more! You are free to promote yourself or a group you belong to.

Other-Original-Art

Please don't post more than 2 things at once before someone else can or within an hour.
Please remember that artwork should stay respectful!


Anime and Manga
This channel is dedicated to discussing Anime and Manga. Maybe a conversation from #general_chat has grown more focused on anime? Or, you want to discuss a manga more in depth with some members? That's precisely what this channel is for!

If you feel like it doesn't fall under this but is something related to the interest, and isn't covered by other topics, you can still post it here.
