The Official South Park Discord (listed on Discord as South Park) is a chat and voice server on the Discord app run by South Park Digital Studios' social media team. The server describes itself as "a community of South Park fans who want to discuss the show, show off their fan art, share memes, talk about the games, and much more".
As of January 10, 2022, there are 17,927 members. Roles include favorites of the main boys, superhero factions, as well as notification roles for South Park updates, server news, or events, such as a South Park bingo event for South Park: Post Covid: The Return of Covid and weekly table reads of episodes on voice chat.
The moderation team currently includes the official South Park account, 2th, HighJewElfKing, JVM, Tori, SpicyLice, Alstro, ARIANKA, treyparkerfan30 and THE REAPER.
The server was launched October 25, 2017, as the r/southpark subreddit server and was founded by a user named 2th, who also moderated the subreddit.
On November 17, 2021, ownership of the sever was taken by South Park Studios, contacted by administrator 2nd on Twitter, who now approves all aspects of the server including overseeing moderators and rule changes.
On January 10, 2022, they rolled out integration with South Park Archives via WikiBot, allowing members to look up any article on the wiki from within Discord itself for quick and easy reference.
On January 21, 2022, four new moderators were added to the team: Alstro, ARIANKA, treyparkerfan30 and THE REAPER.
