Creating a Rules Section in Discord Server

If you are a Discord server owner or administrator, it is essential to have clear and concise rules that govern the behavior of your members. This helps maintain a positive and friendly environment for everyone involved. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of creating a rules section in your Discord server.

Step 1: Accessing Server Settings

To start, log in to Discord and navigate to the server where you want to create the rules section. On the left-hand side of the screen, locate the server name and right-click on it. From the context menu that appears, select “Server Settings.”

Step 2: Creating a Channel

In the Server Settings menu, look for “Channels” on the left-hand side and click on it. Then, click on the green “Create Channel” button.

Step 3: Naming and Configuring the Channel

A new window will pop up asking you to name your channel. Enter a relevant name such as “Rules” or “Guidelines.” You can also choose an appropriate channel topic if desired.

  • Name: Rules
  • Topic: Guidelines for our community

Next, under “Channel Type,” select “Text Channel” from the drop-down menu.

Step 4: Setting Permissions

If you want all members to be able to view and access this channel, make sure that “@everyone” has both “Read Messages” and “Send Messages” permissions enabled.

  • @everyone:
    • Read Messages: Allow
    • Send Messages: Allow

If you want to restrict access to the rules section, you can customize the permissions by assigning specific roles to the channel. This allows you to control who can view and post content in this section.

Step 5: Adding Rules

Now that your rules section is set up, it’s time to add the actual rules. You can simply type them out in the channel or paste them from a document.

Example Rules:

  1. No spamming or excessive self-promotion.
  2. Respect all members and treat each other with kindness.
  3. Do not post offensive or inappropriate content.
  4. No personal attacks or harassment of any kind.
  5. Follow Discord’s terms of service and community guidelines.

You can add as many rules as necessary, but remember to keep them concise and easy to understand. Breaking down complex rules into smaller bullet points can also help improve readability.

Tips for Effective Rule Creation:

  • Brevity: Keep your rules concise and to the point.
  • Clarity: Use simple language that is easily understood by everyone.
  • Specificity: Clearly define what behaviors are acceptable and unacceptable.
  • Prioritization: Arrange your rules in order of importance.


You have successfully created a rules section in your Discord server. Your members can now easily access and familiarize themselves with the guidelines that govern your community. Remember, these rules are essential for maintaining a positive and respectful environment for everyone involved.

Make sure to periodically review and update your rules section as needed to ensure they remain relevant and effective.

Happy Discord server managing!
