    Hey everyone!

    I just wanted to let you know that I've made the decision to stop accepting donations for TShock. Back when we started out, I didn't have stable income and running this project cost me way more money than I had -- and donations kept us alive for a long time. Now, however, I've reached the point where I have a steady income and can support the project without outside help.

    As a thank you, @Septimus and @Atreon have been permanently given their donor ranks, as they were the longest lasting donors we've ever had. In addition, all prior donors and contributors will be getting permanent access to future projects that I sell at no charge, and some additional thank you benefits as I come up with them.

    But again, thank you. TShock wouldn't be here without its community. Thank you all so much!

    Most of our community is on Discord, so we've reinstated a minimalist Discord server for Q/A type questions - quick questions with quick answers.
    You can join at https://discord.gg/Cav9nYX

    If you're seeking in-depth help then it's still recommended that you visit our Telegram room at https://t.me/pryaxis. This is where we will provide further assistance if required.

    I wanted to fill everyone in again on what's been going on with the Discord situation.

    Discord has maintained the following:
    1. Our server has been promoting cheats and hacks. We disagree with this reasoning, and Discord has not actually told us any message that spurred the initial server + account ban.
    2. My account is not in violation of the Discord terms of service. They agree that I didn't promote any hacks and cheats, and actually reversed my account ban.
    3. The TShock for Terraria project is a legitimate project, officially sanctioned by Re-Logic, but the Pryaxis server was promoting, encouraging, or distributing cheats.
    Discord has further concluded that since I'm the owner of the server, I'm responsible for all messages posted on the server, including anything sent from just normal, average user. As a result, if I didn't take action by removing a post by a user that promoted cheats or hacks, then the server must be terminated as it promotes cheats or hacks. In other words: if I failed to remove something, then the entire server is in jeopardy.

    I have reproduced the entire email from Discord:

    Hi nicatronTg,

    Thanks for the update. On further review, I've lifted the ban on your account.

    The server in question was found to be distributing, promoting, or encouraging cheats. I understand that TShock is legitimate, but we were able to locate content showing the server was being used for the promotion or encouragement of cheating in our investigation.

    We won't be able to restore the server, but you are welcome to create a new one. Going forward, you'll want to be sure that you are moderating your server properly and removing any content related to cheats or hacks for our or any other service, which was likely the problem here. As server owner, its your responsibility to ensure our community guidelines are being enforced within that server.

    Cheers,

    All of us on the TShock Team (and by extension,...

    Discord has terminated our server and my account. Until it's restored, we have an alternative: https://t.me/pryaxis.

    We're working with both Discord and Re-Logic to get my account and the server reinstated. The full email is copy-pasted below:

    Hello,
    Discord is focused on maintaining a safe and secure environment for our community, and your account has been flagged by the Discord community for violations of our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. Our team has reviewed the claim and taken action by disabling your account.
    Your account was involved in promoting or encouraging illegal activity including hacking, cracking or the distribution of pirated software, cheats or hacks for our or another company's service.
    Sincerely,
    Discord Trust & Safety Team​

    As you know, TShock is six years old and has a large following. We're also officially sanctioned by Re-Logic. We're going to continue working to get our Discord server restored.

    Annoyed,

    EDIT:
    Putting this in here so people don't have to scroll to see the update

    An update on this:

    Discord reversed the ban on @nicatronTg's account, but stated that they had definitive proof that we broke their ToS and will not be reinstating the server.
    Despite this we have been informed we may freely make a new server. Make of that what you will

    We will not be using Discord moving forward
