Documentation edit

This template is a variant of Template:cite web for citing Discord messages. While all of the parameters for that template still work here, this version has more convenient parameters that can be used instead.

<ref>{{cite Discord|url=|channel=|server=|author=|username=|access-date=|quote=}}</ref>

If the message is within a thread, add this parameter: |thread=

To change the word "Message", add this parameter: |message type=
