Telegram is a messaging app available on all of your devices at the same time; you can use it seamlessly across all of your phones, tablets or computers. In addition to messages, Telegram allows you to send photos, videos and files of any type. You can even make end-to-end encrypted voice calls without having to share or expose your phone number (you are never required to share your phone number with any other user).
It also allows for the creation of groups of up to 200,000 members or channels that can broadcast to an unlimited number of subscribers. The Dark Jedi Brotherhood has an official chat group here, as well as groups dedicated to gaming, fiction, art and most major units within the Brotherhood.
Glad you asked! There’s several ways to create an account for Telegram: through your phone, tablet, desktop app, or simply through the Telegram web app. In this course, we’ll explain how to sign up through the Telegram web app. Let’s get started!
First of all, go to the Telegram Web App. If you’ve never created a Telegram account before, it will ask you for your phone number. Telegram only asks for your phone number during signup and login. Once you have entered your phone number, you will receive a text message on the number you’ve entered. This message will contain a code that you’ll have to enter.
Your phone number is hidden from other users unless those users know your number already and have it saved in their address book or you have shared your number with them yourself via ‘Share My Contact Info’.
Next, the app will ask you for your first and last name. Feel free to enter what you will. Personally, I’ve entered my DJB name, but you may enter your real name if you choose. This will be the name that appears publicly to your contacts, unless they have your phone number.
Once you enter your name, you’re done. Congratulations, you’re now on Telegram!
Good question. Let’s create a username. This will allow you to be found, and added, to people’s contacts and group conversations. Go to your settings. This is different in each version, but generally accessed through the top-left corner’s hamburger menu, or the bottom right on iOS.
Right at the top, there should be a setting for a username. Use this to create your own username, but be aware that usernames are given out based on first-come, first-serve, by Telegram.
Usernames must be at least 5 characters long, are case-insensitive, and may contain letters, numbers, and underscores.
Usernames are public. This means that anyone who does not have your phone number but searches for your username can message you. ** While usernames aren't required, they are highly encouraged. **
Now that we’ve created a username, let’s go join some groups.
Joining a group is as simple as clicking a link or being invited by a member who is already in the group. You can find a list of channel invite links on the Brotherhood Chat page.
Occasionally, the DB Gaming Lounge will change its invite link to better manage bots. To join the Gaming channel, seek out one of the members of the FIST staff in the DB General Chat to obtain an updated invite link.
Groups support a variety of Telegram features, like using replies, mentions and hashtags, managing administrators and user permissions, and even creating polls to survey your group. Learn more about interacting with and administering groups on Telegram here.
Yup, they’re here, and they’re to be listened to. If you don’t, you’ll have to deal with the Justicar. The DB Chat channel is an official DB channel, which means that all our normal rules apply, as well as a few specific to Telegram:
