This is a template for including links to messages on the Conwaylife Lounge Discord server in the "References" section of an article. It can take the following parameters:

  • channel, the name of the channel the message was posted in, without the # sign:
    • Options are starboard, rules, info, announcements, general-discussion, off-topic, tools, cgol, naturalistic, synthetic, general-theory, other-math, programming, bots-and-mute-this, and boice-text;
  • id, the numerical ID of the message (this can be obtained by clicking on the three dots to the right of the message and clicking "Copy ID");
  • author, the author of the thread or post (optional);
  • date, the date the forum post was posted (optional, if author is specified);

Here are three simple usage examples:

You type:

{{CiteDiscord|channel=cgol|id=700583344085139496}}

You see:

Message in #cgol on the Conwaylife Lounge Discord server

{{CiteDiscord|author=Mateon1|date=April 17, 2020|channel=cgol|id=700583344085139496}}
