"Welcome to the Cyberdog Nation Discord, the official Discord Server for ReNDoG and his community!" Dogcraft Discord #welcome
The Cyberdog Nation Server (commonly known simply as the Dogcraft Discord) is the official public discord server of ReNDoG. Since its creation on the 28th of September, 2015, the server has acted as a hub for communication between players of the Dogcraft Minecraft Server, the ReNDoG Patreon server, viewers of his Twitch channel, users of the Dogcraft.net website, as well as for non-Minecraft related Cyberdog community discussion.
Introduction & Rise
Since the Discord Server's creation activity on the Dogcraft.net site forums began to decline, as discussion using the platform became more efficient, effective and easier thanks to its streamlined interface and voice chat. It would only take around half a year after the discord's creation for it to completely overtake the built-in Dogcraft AJAX Chat, leading to its discontinuation. In March 2020, Dogcraft.net underwent a redesign which stripped the site of its' forum functionality, thus making the Discord the sole centre for Cyberdog communication,
The Discord itself has many sections and roles (detailed below). Sections range from general chat channels, picture sharing, video and content sharing, hermit and IRL discussions as well as private sections for Patreons of ReNDoG, Twitch subscribers and Discord Moderators. Official Discord servers for the Dogcraft Wiki, the Staff Team, Events Team & Build Team are also in use. Additionally, Since Discord has grown in popularity, many sub communities on Dogcraft have also made their own discords, notably that of towns, projects like the SRN and event management.

- Before the GDPR compliance update that took place in May 2018, players had the option to talk, via discord, to players ingame. This channel, called #server-chat, allowed people to type in discord and their message appear in game. This also worked vice versa, allowing players who were offline, to keep up with what was happening in server chat.
- Role: This was assigned to players muted in-game to prevent them from circumventing this by talking on Discord.
