    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,
    L


    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

    Why do I get the feeling that certain salty people decided to report TShock as a Terraria hack and Discord's team didn't even ask ReLogic if it was true?

    I get the same feeling. I sent them a nice email with two @re-logic.com emails to follow up with and haven't heard back yet.

    I heard of a nice alternative to Discord called Riot. It's not gaming-oriented like Discord, but it's open-source, and you can host your own instance, with technically your own ToS.

    Riot is actually just a client on the Matrix protocol, and it's pretty terrible from my experience dealing with it. We've considered it but probably won't go in this direction.
