How Can I Tell When My Discord Server Was Made?


Angela Bailey

Have you ever wondered when your Discord server was created? Knowing the creation date of your server can be useful for various reasons, such as tracking the history and growth of your community or organizing special events to celebrate milestones. In this tutorial, we will explore different methods to find out when your Discord server was made.

Method 1: Server Information

The easiest way to find out when your Discord server was created is by using the built-in Server Information feature. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Discord and navigate to your desired server.
  2. On the right side of the screen, click on the down arrow next to the server name.
  3. Select “Server Settings” from the dropdown menu.
  4. In the left sidebar, click on “Overview.”
  5. Scroll down until you find the “Server Created” section, which displays the exact date and time when your server was created.

Note: Keep in mind that only users with administrative privileges can access Server Settings and view this information.

Method 2: Developer Mode

If you are a more advanced user or have developer permissions on your server, you can enable Developer Mode to access additional information. Here’s how:

  1. Open Discord and go to User Settings (the gear icon next to your username).
  2. In User Settings, navigate to “Appearance” in the left sidebar.
  3. Scroll down until you find the “Advanced” section and toggle on “Developer Mode.”

Once Developer Mode is enabled, follow these steps:

  1. Return to your Discord server.
  2. Right-click on the server name in the left sidebar.
  3. A dropdown menu will appear. Click on “Copy ID.

  4. Open a text editor or any other application where you can paste the copied ID.
  5. Paste the ID, and you will see a long string of numbers. The date and time your server was created are encoded within this string.

Note: If you don’t have Developer Mode enabled, you won’t see the “Copy ID” option when right-clicking on the server name.

Method 3: Discord API

If you are comfortable with coding and have access to Discord’s API, you can programmatically retrieve your server’s creation date using a programming language such as JavaScript. Here’s a basic example:

const Discord = require('discord.js');
const client = new Discord.Client();

client.on('ready', () => {
  const guild = client.guilds.cache.get('your_server_id');
  const creationDate = guild.createdAt;

  console.log(`Server Created: ${creationDate}`);


In this example, replace ‘your_server_id’ with your actual server ID and ‘your_bot_token’ with your own bot token. After running this code, it will output the creation date of your server in the console.


Knowing when your Discord server was made can provide valuable insights into its growth and development. Whether you use the Server Information feature, enable Developer Mode, or leverage Discord’s API, these methods will help you uncover the creation date of your server. Enjoy exploring your server’s history!
