    Beginner's Skyblock Discord Guide
    Discord is a voice/text chatting application that you can download on your phone or computer. Discord was made as an alternative to Teamspeak and Skype, and was primarily aimed towards gamers however over the years it has started to cater to different types of communities as well, not just gamers.

    I've made this guide to help people figure out their way around the Skyblock Discord, and also for people who are interested in joining the server.

    Thank you both!!

    Each Karaoke Night happens once every two weeks. They alternate each week.
    UK timezone Karaoke Night happens every Friday.
    Australian/Asian timezone Karaoke Night happens every Saturday.

    They never occur on the same week but every week has a Karaoke Night hosted.
    Today is Saturday and is the Asian/Aussie timezone Karaoke Night, at 9 am EST meaning next week Karaoke Night will be hosted on Friday and will be based on UK timing.
