PLEASE BE ADVISED:
- ScoutWired has disabled PM/DM between users on the server, this is to increase the level of security for users. Users can BLOCK users from their end by clicking their name on the user list and selecting the option from the pop-up menu. Users found attempting to circumvent our rules around not DM/PM-ing users will be banned.
- The ScoutWired Discord server is auto-moderated for NSFW content, the system will not allow it to post to the channel.
