Organizing Discord

In this section we will learn a few strategies for effectively organizing your Discord for prompting work.

These include creating categories and channels and making threads for rapid search over your prompts.

The goal of this section is to give you a few tips that will make it easier to keep track of your generations and iterate on large collections of prompts.

Creating Categories and Channels

Categories and channels are a nice way to organize your prompts around a theme.

For example, let's say that you are iterating on some prompts related to interior design of a home. There could be multiple types of images you will create from living room designs to bathrooms to wallpaper. As you start experimenting with many different prompts, your generations may quickly get out of hand.

This is a great candidate to organize your work using categories and channels. In this case, you could define a category called "Interior Design" and then create channels for each type of room you are working on.

Discord makes it very straightforward to create categories and channels within them.

Searching for Prompts with Threads

Creating threads on prompts and images is a neat trick to make them easier to search for.

While Discord already has text search supported, you can think of this trick as a way to add tags on your images.

For example, let's say you are designing a new white living room prototype. After you've generated your image, you can create a thread on that image post and add some tag you want to use to identify it.

In this case, we want to identify the fact that the image is v1 of our prototype.
