Guide to KOA

Welcome to the extended Guide of KOA!


For all KOA Commands – type !commands in #bot-interaction


What the heck is all the yelling about

 Pomodoro Raids (Group Pomodoros) – When on the KOA server, you may see a pop up proclaiming “RAAAAAAAAAAAAAID“. Do not be alarmed, someone has started a Pomodoro Raid!

To join the raid, simply follow the link that is attached to the message and you’re in.

To start a raid, use command !raid in citadel

If you don’t know what Pomodoros are, find out more here

Make sure to abide by the Pomodoro Raid Rules


 Alerts, Voting, & Announcements

#content-notifier – Here in KOA, we have a content notifier bot that we all love. The Content Notifier bot shoots us a heads up when a new article is published from knightsofacademia.com

#voting-hall – Our members actually have a huge impact on our events, our content, and even our infrastructure. Keep your eyes peeled for opportunities to vote on an important topic in this channel.

#announcements – When a particularly noteworthy event is taking place that you should know about it, the KOA staff team will send out an announcement. These can be releasing our Book of the Month, new group meditations that take place every Tuesday now, or even spontaneous giveaways


  KOA Programs

We host two legendary main programs.

#challenge-of-the-week – Each week we challenge ourselves both mentally and physically with a brand new challenge that is voted on by the community.

Previous Challenges of the Week can be found here:https://knightsofacademia.com/category/cotw/

#book-of-the-month – Each month we read and focus on one life changing book as a community. It’s optional to join, but I highly recommend you do. Each and every month we dig so much deeper into the material than you possibly can by reading the book alone. Our Book of the Month Club is moderated by the wonderful @Kayla. Books are chosen by the community.

Previous Books of the Month can be found here: https://knightsofacademia.com/category/botm/


 KOA Events

Every week we run fun events that you don’t want to miss. All events can be found on our events calendar located on the right sidebar.

Town Hall Meetings & Group Discussions

Every month both KOA and KOA: International hold voice chats that the community can be a part of. Town Hall meetings are held for members to voice their concerns and share their ideas for bettering the community. Discussion events are for kicking back and chatting with fellow members
