People can have a couple of roles on the server, as well as on Discord.
The Registered role is required for any actions involving Charliebot and the server, such as joining an event or eventually being promoted to Racer.
Getting the Registered role in Discord translates to gaining the Registered status on the server which gives you a better chance to get in.
To gain the Registered role follow these steps:
!discord <whatever that 6 character code is>
Discord Registered Role added and rank granted on server.message from the BOT and gain the Registered role in Discord.
As the popularity of Homecoming grows, it's increasingly important that the people on the server actively participate in and finish races. Because of this the new "Troll" role was introduced to dissuade constant DNFing and generally unwanted behaviour. It's somewhat related to us kicking people, who're just sitting AFK on a full server, while others are waiting to get on.
What does it mean? As you need to be something of a "serial DNFer" in order to get the role, there are some drawbacks to having it:
How is it determined who gets the role? Every user has a hidden "score" in the system, which is calculated based on the amount of finished races (increases score) versus the amount of DNSs/DNFs/bins/kicks (decreases score). If your score falls below a certain treshold, you will be automatically assigned the Troll role. Once you successfully finish enough races to increase your score, it is automatically removed.
How do I check my score? You don't. If you don't have the role, just keep doing what you're doing and you should be fine. The system is fully automated and neither the staff or Racers have access to the scores, so don't ask.
I don't like living under bridges! How do I fix this? Just keep finishing races, don't DNF at the drop of a hat, don't get binned etc., and you'll eventually climb out from under the bridge into the sunlight.
People with this role can host event races and quick races.
The racer role is given to trusted members of the community, most so far have been long time NoDo or 1322 members or have been part of the server and the testing for a long time.
There is no time scale for gaining the role and it is not something that can be requested. Just enjoy the server and the racing and you will eventually be noticed and promoted.
