Discord

The RSEA has adopted a new platform for Linear Accelerator Engineers/Technologist to find solutions to their problems, communicate with other Engineers/Technologists and post important information to our community.

Discord is a free cross-platform voice and text chat application (originally designed for gamers) which has grown from 45 million world-wide users in mid-2017 to 250 million users in mid-2019.  Discord runs on Windows, macOS, Android, Linux, and in web browsers.

The Discord program supersedes the “Majordomo Linac Bulletin Board” ** by providing many modern benefits not available via the list server.

The Discord platform provides the ability to:

  • Communicate by voice
  • Attach documents
  • Attach photos
  • Search history using key words
  • Pin important conversations you’d like to reference again

Discord Instructions:

  1. Download the discord app from the Microsoft Store, the App Store, or via a web browser: Discord Download
  2. Register for an account in the App
  3. After Registering, click on the (+) symbol on the left side of the screen and click “Join Server”
  4. Contact Jamie Watson for Server Invite. jamie.watson@bjc.org
  5. If you need any assistance, please contact: jamie.watson@bjc.org or see the Discord Help Center

Once you’ve joined the server, you will be assigned a role as a member or non-member based on your RSEA membership status. There are a few channels that are restricted to “Members Only”, however, most are open to all, including the RSEA-Chat, job posting and Troubleshooting channels. If you wish to be a member, please register on the “Become a Member” link above.

Thank you,

RSEA Board

**  Note:  the RSEA will disable the “Majordomo Linac Bulletin Board” effective October 1, 2021. At that time, all communications will be moved to Discord.
