Adding a Discord link to your Rust server can be incredibly useful for community engagement and communication. By providing a direct invitation to your Discord server, you can connect with players, share updates, organize events, and build a thriving community around your Rust server. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of adding a Discord link to your Rust server.
Step 1: Create a Discord Server
If you haven’t already, start by creating a Discord server for your Rust community. Head over to the Discord website, sign in or create an account if needed, and click on the plus icon at the left-hand side of the app to create a new server.
Step 2: Customize Your Discord Server
To make your Discord server visually appealing and engaging, consider customizing it with various features like channels, roles, emojis, and more. Organize different channels for general discussions, announcements, support, voice chats, and anything else that suits your community’s needs.
To create channels on your Discord server:

- Step 2: In the settings menu that appears on the right-hand side of the app, click on “Channels.”
- Step 3: Click on the plus icon next to “Text Channels” or “Voice Channels” to create new channels.
- Step 4: Customize each channel’s name and permissions according to your preferences.
To assign roles on your Discord server:
- Step 1: In the server settings menu, click on “Roles.”
- Step 2: Click on the plus icon to create a new role.
- Step 3: Customize the role’s name, color, and permissions.
- Step 4: Assign roles to different members of your community by right-clicking their name and selecting “Roles.”
To add emojis to your Discord server:
- Step 1: In the server settings menu, click on “Emojis.”
- Step 2: Click on the plus icon to upload or choose an emoji from Discord’s library.
Step 3: Generating a Discord Link
To generate an invite link for your Discord server:
- Note: Only users with administrative privileges can generate invite links for Discord servers.
- a) On the left-hand side of the app, right-click on your server’s name and select “Invite People”.
Step 4: Adding the Discord Link to Your Rust Server
Now that you have your Discord server set up and a link generated, it’s time to add it to your Rust server. Here are a few common ways to do so:
Adding the Link in Server Description
If your Rust server has a description field, you can include the Discord link there. Players will be able to see and access it when browsing through server listings. Ensure that the link is easily visible and clickable.
Adding the Link in MOTD (Message of the Day)
If your Rust server allows you to display custom messages when players connect, consider adding the Discord link as part of the MOTD. This way, every time someone joins your server, they will see and have easy access to your Discord community.
In-Game Announcement or Chat Commands
You can also utilize in-game announcements or chat commands to share the Discord link with players. Use plugins or mods that allow broadcasting messages or executing custom commands within Rust.
Congratulations! You have successfully added a Discord link to your Rust server.
By doing so, you have created an avenue for players to connect, communicate, and build a strong community around your Rust server. Remember to actively engage with your community on Discord and make it an inclusive space for everyone.
