2. ๐ŸŒŽ Getting Started


โš™๏ธ General Settings

After you’ve created your Unusual Whales account and have logged in, you’ll be taken to the ๏ธโš™๏ธ General Settings menu. From here you can link your Discord account, as well as enable/disable ๐ŸŒ— Dark Mode. These document pages will not be affected by your dark mode preference. Your preference here will affect the mobile application’s appearance.

Settings

  • To link your Discord account, please click the “Link Discord” button and follow the authorization instructions. โ„น๏ธ Linking your Discord account is completely optional. Other than the chatrooms, all of the subscription based content found on the Discord server can also found on the website.

  • Once you’ve successfully completed the authorization, you’ll see your Discord account in the corresponding box. Ensure that the Discord account you’d like to link matches the account displayed in the box. The #numbers must match too! โ„น๏ธ If you’ve accidentally linked the wrong Discord account please reach out to us in #tech-support-help channel on the Discord server, or you can email us at [email protected].

  • To double-check that the link has been successful on the Discord side, please visit the Discord server. In the #๐Ÿ‹start-here๐Ÿ‹ channel you’ll see a listing of the subscriber-only channels. If your account has been properly linked you’ll be able to access them. Alternatively, you check your Discord Roles to see if you’ve been assigned the ‘Buffet’s Seafood Buffet’ role.


โš™๏ธ Notification Settings

You’ll be able to set your notification settings from this menu. For more information please reference the ๐Ÿ“ Notification Settings doc.
