Discord servers are a popular way to create online communities and connect with like-minded individuals. As a server owner, you have full control over the server settings, permissions, and management.
However, there may come a time when you need to delegate some of these responsibilities to someone else. In this tutorial, we will explore whether it is possible to make someone a Discord server owner.
Understanding Server Ownership
Before we dive into the process of making someone a server owner, it’s important to understand what server ownership entails. The server owner has the highest level of control and authority within a Discord server. They can manage channels, roles, permissions, and even transfer ownership to another member if needed.
Server Roles and Permissions
To make someone a server owner, you need to ensure that they have the necessary roles and permissions. By default, only the person who creates the server becomes its initial owner. However, other members can be granted administrative roles or specific permissions that allow them to assist in managing the server.
Step 1: Accessing Server Settings
To begin the process of granting ownership privileges to another member, open your Discord application and navigate to your desired server. Once there, locate the server name on the left-hand side of your screen and right-click on it. From the context menu that appears, select “Server Settings”.
Step 2: Managing Roles
In the Server Settings menu, locate the “Roles” tab on the left-hand side. This section displays all existing roles within your Discord server.
- Create a New Role: If you haven’t already created a role for your desired new owner or want to create one specifically for this purpose, click on the “+” button next to “Roles” to create a new role. Give it an appropriate name and assign the desired permissions.
- Modify Existing Role: If you already have a role that you want to assign ownership privileges to, find the role in the list and click on it to modify its settings.
Step 3: Assigning Ownership
Once you have created or modified the role with the necessary permissions, you can assign it to the member who you wish to make a server owner.
- Assigning a Role: Go back to the “Members” tab in Server Settings and locate the member’s username. Click on the “+” button next to their name and select the role you created or modified from the dropdown menu.
- Transferring Ownership: If your intention is to transfer ownership of your Discord server completely, you can pass on your own owner role. To do this, right-click on your own username in the Members list, select “Transfer Ownership”, and choose the new owner from the list of available members.
In summary, while Discord does not have a direct option to grant ownership status, you can achieve this by assigning specific roles and permissions. By creating or modifying roles with appropriate privileges and assigning them to members, you can effectively make someone a server owner or delegate administrative responsibilities.
Remember that transferring ownership of a server should be done carefully and only when absolutely necessary. Trust is an important factor when choosing someone as a new server owner. Make sure they understand their responsibilities and are capable of managing the server effectively.
With these steps in mind, you can confidently delegate some of your Discord server management tasks knowing that your community is in capable hands.
