If you find yourself needing to cancel a Discord server for any reason, don’t worry! Discord provides a simple and straightforward process to help you achieve this. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to cancel a Discord server.
Step 1: Open Discord
To begin the cancellation process, open the Discord application or visit the official Discord website using your preferred web browser. Ensure that you are logged into your Discord account.
Step 2: Select the Server
Once you are logged in, locate and select the server that you wish to cancel. The server list can be found on the left-hand side of the screen. Take note of the server name as you will need it for later steps.
Step 3: Access Server Settings
After selecting the server, click on its name to access its settings. This will open a drop-down menu with various options for managing the server.
Option 1: Using Desktop App
If you are using the desktop app, click on the small down arrow next to the server’s name at the top left corner of the screen. This will reveal a drop-down menu with server options. Scroll down and select “Server Settings.”
Option 2: Using Web Browser
If you are using a web browser, look for a gear icon located next to the server’s name at the top left corner of your screen. Click on this gear icon to access “Server Settings.”
Step 4: Navigate to ‘Delete Server’
After accessing “Server Settings,” navigate to “Delete Server” located in either “Overview” or “Moderation.” The exact location may vary depending on your device and version of Discord.
- Note: The ‘Delete Server’ option is only available to users with the necessary permissions. If you do not see this option, make sure you have the appropriate permissions or contact the server owner/admin for assistance.
Step 5: Confirm Cancellation
Click on “Delete Server” to initiate the cancellation process. Discord will prompt you with a confirmation message, ensuring that you want to proceed with the cancellation.
- Note: Be cautious when selecting this option as it permanently deletes all server data, including channels, messages, roles, and member lists. This action cannot be undone.
Step 6: Enter Server Name and Confirm
To confirm the cancellation, enter the name of the server that you wish to cancel into the provided text field. Discord requires this additional step as an extra measure to prevent accidental cancellations.
- Note: Make sure you double-check the server name before confirming as this step is irreversible.
Step 7: Finalize Cancellation
Once you have entered the correct server name, click on “Delete Server” to finalize the cancellation process. Discord will permanently delete your selected server along with all its content.
Cancelling a Discord server is a quick and easy process. By following these steps, you can ensure that your server and its content are permanently removed from Discord. Please remember that this action is irreversible, so exercise caution before proceeding with server cancellation.
