What are your thoughts? @everyone is a great way too immediately contact everyone on our discord. This is a great tool too connect with those who don't use our voice servers. Communication is key in a large gaming community like ours. All feedback is fair game speak your mind.

This is mainly brought up b/c of my own complaint that JDMan uses the @everyone command in Discord too much.

I'm all for keeping @everyone. It's definitely useful. But occasionally @JDMan will repeatedly resend the same message (@everyone) over and over and over again in a single day...

I use Discord on my Phone, my iPad and my Laptop. I personally am okay with seeing the message the first time on all of the devices... But the second, third and fourth times are excessive... @everyone sees the @everyone the first time it's sent. It doesn't need to be resent every 2 hours...

I feel that this thread was made in response to me complaining that @JDMan uses @everyone too much... That's the issue- not whether or not we should ban it in general.

The overall effectiveness of @everyone becomes meaningless when such messages are spammed... People begin to mute our discord channel for that reason...

TL;DR; @everyone is great if used in moderation.
@everyone sees the @everyone message the first time...

I haven't found it annoying. But I only have discord on my PC. So I look at it when I want to.

You will know it when you see it.
