This is the template used to cite comments from Question LLC developers in the TBC Official Discord.

Usage

{{CiteDiscord
|user  =
|d     =
|m     =
|y     =
|url   =
|image =
}}

Where

|user= the Discord username of the developer who is making the comment. If a non-listed source is used, the citation will produce an error with [[Category:Invalid Discord Citation]] applied. Valid usernames:
  • dphrygian
  • KainAsylum
  • mightylittleone
  • Nullspeak
  • Patches
  • ru
|d= the day the comment was made, either one or two numerical characters (0-9).
|m= the month the comment was made, the month spelled out in full (e.g. "August").
|y= the year the comment was made using 4 numerical characters.
|url= the direct Discord URL to the developer's comment. See Discord'd support page for more information. If no url is added, [[Category:Discord references without urls]] is applied.
|image= the file name of the uploaded screenshot of the developer comment on the TBC Wiki. Discord screenshots must abide by the Wiki's Rules. The file name should not contain any prefixes (e.g. File, Media, etc.). If no image is added, [[Category:Discord references without images]] is applied.

Example

The citation on the The Song article:

{{CiteDiscord
|user  = Nullspeak
|d     = 27
|m     = September
|y     = 2019
|url   = https://discordapp.com/channels/442027980244647947/494555004250619911/627043164443639809
|image = Live watchers.png
}}

Which produces:

In-line: [1]
In the reference section:

  1. Nullspeak (27 September 2019), TBC Official Discord. Link. Image.

An invalid reference example:

In-line: Error

In the reference section:
