Happy Lunar New Year!

Find and Join your Chinese Zodiac!
It isn’t called the ‘Year of the Rat’ for no reason! Every birth-year on a 12 year cycle is associated with an animal in the Chinese Zodiac! Curious to find what’s yours? Well, we’ve set up a special #zodiac-table room in our Discord server you can find what animal is under your Chinese zodiac!
Even better! In that room you’ll also find commands that you can use over on the server’s #commands room! Using one of these commands will add your zodiac animal to your username and will also let you claim a special Lunar Celebrator and pinkish-red-name for posterity!
