Discord is our virtual hotel space for the convention. While the majority of our panels will be available to all on YouTube and Facebook, joining Discord unlocks the rest of the convention experience, including our Art Show, Discord-exclusive roundtable panels, costume showcase, open discussion spaces with other attendees, Q&A with vendors, and so much more.

What Will I Find on Discord?
Take a peek at what you can expect to find in our virtual hotel space.
Why should I join Discord?
While the majority of our panels will be available to all on YouTube and Facebook, our Discord server will provide the opportunity to interact in real time, through text chat or voice chat, with other attendees, participate in discussions, play a few games, and more. We also have a selection of content that is exclusive to the Discord server, such as our Art Show and Discord-exclusive roundtable panels. It's about the closest we can come to interacting in person while we're apart!
How do I access Discord?
Discord itself can be accessed in your web browser, through a free application on your desktop, or from your mobile device. You can download Discord by visiting the DISCORD WEBSITE or visiting your mobile app store.
To access the CONsole Room Discord server, you must register for CONsole Room 2021. Registration information can be found on our REGISTRATION PAGE.
Why do I need to register for the convention to get access to the Discord server?
Being in an online space, we have to think of security a little differently. Requiring registration for the event prior to receiving access to the server is one way we are increasing the security of our online event spaces and ensuring a smooth, enjoyable experience for all attendees.
Do I need a login for Discord?
Yes, you will need to create a free Discord account in order to access our CONsole Room server.
Is there an age limit?
Yes, Discord requires that all users be 13 years and above or accompanied by a parent or guardian.
