Odds are it's this paragraph

By uploading, distributing, transmitting or otherwise using Your Content with the Service, you grant to us a perpetual, nonexclusive, transferable, royalty-free, sublicensable, and worldwide license to use, host, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, and display Your Content in connection with operating and providing the Service.

It's a pretty standard clause in Terms of Service. Checking three big services (Facebook, Twitter and Reddit), all of them have the same clause, almost verbatim. I'm not even close to a lawyer, but as I understand it, it's mainly an ass-covering clause that allows them to actually provide their product. Otherwise you'd have to give permission for them to upload every message, picture, file etc to their servers, store it, send it to others in the chat etc.

This is correct, and every major service has a similar clause.

When you upload, say, an image to our Service, you must

  1. Give us the rights to distribute it to others
  2. Allow us to modify it, by cropping it or compressing it
  3. Allow us to create derivitive work from it, again by cropping or compressing it
  4. Transfer/sublicense this license, if Discord were to ever own an international subsidiary for example.

Note that the last sentance clearly says we only have these rights in connection with operating and providing the Service, meaning these rights are only given to us in the context of making Discord work, we can't steal your stuff and use it on something not related to providing the Service.

It doesn’t make sense from a reliability point of view either. Now if either drive fails my pc won’t boot. I think windows should at least give you the option when installing.

In the future I’m only going to have my ssd connected when I install windows and add the secondary drive afterwards

I went through the same thing and it really sucked. Needed both drives to boot windows. Since then, I only ever have one drive installed when installing Windows, and I add the rest later

I understand exactly what I'm doing, but I don't think a job there would be much fun. Especially if I have to debug light theme.

we have special goggles for that

This was not a glitch and this was an intended change.

We did, however, roll this back so we can make a few operational changes before we release it again.

More information to come :)

INTENDED?! Is this going to be a thing forever, or was it just a simply April Fools joke and all those users who got into HypeSquad be removed?

allthefoxes 3 points

No April Fools here! More info to come soon!

If you've completed a degree, consider getting flair in r/science through our Science Verified User Program

/r/science has a a system of verifying accounts for commenting, enabling trained scientists, doctors and engineers to make credible comments in /r/science . The intent of this program is to enable the general public to distinguish between an educated opinion and a random comment without a background related to the topic.

What flair is available?

All of the standard science disciplines would be represented, matching those in the sidebar. However, to better inform the public, the level of education is displayed in the flair too. For example, a Professor of Biology is tagged as such (Professor | Biology), while a graduate student of biology is tagged as "Grad Student | Biology." Nurses would be tagged differently than doctors, etc...

We give flair for engineering, social sciences, natural sciences and even, on occasion, music. It's your flair, if you finished a degree in something and you can offer some proof, we'll consider it.

The general format is:

Level of education | Field | Speciality or Subfield (optional)

When applying for a flair, please inform us on what you want it to say.

How does one obtain flair?

First, have a college degree or higher.

Next, send an email with your information to redditscienceflair@gmail.com with information that establishes your claim, this can be a photo of your diploma or course registration, a business card, a verifiable email address, or some other identification.

Please include the following information:

Username:

Flair text: Degree level | Degree area | Speciality

Flair class:

for example:

Username: nate Flair text: PhD | Chemistry | Synthetic Organic Flair Class: chemistry

Due to limitations of time (mods are volunteers) it may take a few days for you flair to be assigned, (we're working on it!)

This email address is restricted access, and only mods which actively assign user flair may log in. All information will be kept in confidence and not released to the public under any circumstances. Your email will then be deleted after verification, leaving no record. For added security, you may submit an imgur link and then delete it after verification.

Remember, that within the proof, you must tie your account name to the information in the picture.

What is expected of a verified account?

We expect a higher level of conduct than a non-verified account, if another user makes inappropriate comments they should report them to the mods who will take appropriate action.

Can you please send me the links to threads we've removed for a political reason? This is behavior I would want to investigate ASAP

Nope!

In fact directly above this you'll see that it says we don't sell your data.

In addition you'll see that this content is only used in connection with operating and providing the service.

Basically this statement means that if you upload content to our service we have the rights to distribute it to others. For example, if you upload a picture to Discord, you have to give us right so we can show it to other people. If you didn't, you could upload the picture and then turn around and sue us right away.

We also may make modifications to your picture, like cropping it. If we ever made say, Discord Europe, we need to give sub-licenses to them as well.

We don't sell your data.

You'll find that pretty much every major site also has this boilerplate text. Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Imgur, etc..

First, if you feel this is a credible threat, you may want to contact your local law enforcement agency.

Second, follow this reporting guide and let us know at abuse@discordapp.com

Would local law enforcement even be able to help? What if the guy lives in another state?

allthefoxes 3 points

Yes, local law enforcement can help.
