The Discord Resources Wiki (or DRW for short), is a collaborative project founded in September 2021 with the goal of listing all the best Discord resources into one easy to use website. For the past three months we have been working hard to make this project the best it can be, in this article we will be telling you all about our work!
The history of the DRW
for quite a while I (Rydix#1726) have been looking for a place to gather all the useful links and tools that would heighten my Discord experience. I stored many on my own, but rapidly realized many were spread all across Discord, and it will take me forever to find the one resource I needed. And like this, an idea struck.
I called my friend Graphic, together we started building a Google Doc full with Resources we would later move to our first public workspace, a GitHub wiki page (this is why we are called the Discord Resources Wiki). Once we got that done we recruited some more friends to help with workflow and design and finally, had the project open to the public.
The comments were great and we figured we had something promising at hand, so when the opportunity came to make this project a proper site, we jumped on it.
Since the making of the site our core team grew to eight members, we have writers, designers and most important, hundreds of daily visitors who use the site to help themselves and others.
What Can We Find In The Site?
We group together similar resources under common categories and topics, accessible on the left on desktop or with the menu icon on mobile. Each resource has a brief description of what it is, followed by the link to where it may be accessed as well as credits to the creators.
This site will be continuously and frequently updated as we come across more resources that would be of help to Discord users across the platform!
How To Take Contributions
The Discord Resources Wiki is a collaborative project, which means we rely on the public knowledge in order to make the list of resources better. Because of that, the project is open source at our GitHub page and every person can make contributions to it.
If you find an error, a new resource to add or want to discuss the project and features in it, you can go to the GitHub or to our Discord server and start contributing! All long time contributors and maintainers are listed on the site under "Contribution". Other ways to contribute to our project include joining our copywriters or designers teams!
We are constantly creating more content and art to our project, and as a result we are always looking for more team members to help and make our project better. If you want to contribute to the project by joining one or more of the teams please join our Discord!
The Future Of The Discord Resources Wiki
As this project continues to grow, our plans continue to grow with it. Although many of our ideas cannot be shared just yet, we can say that soon enough we will be sharing many exiting new things we the community, so expect for more. Our goal when starting this project was to create awareness to the amazing resources the community has created, and create a thriving community for users of all kinds to share their experience on this platform, to make it that little bit better. We will not rest until this target is achieved, and we thank you all for being with us in this journey!
