There have been a number of changes to the SGB Discord server since its inception. And there will be more as the server and community grows, including cool new features.
Part of this reshuffle means that some channels were deleted or demoted to another category, Other. These are the less popular, less used channels and also to make certain sections easier to navigate. They can still be posted to for anyone who wishes to.
