If you use Discord’s search function, you can find thousands of servers dedicated to video games, movies, TV shows, board games, memes, jokes, and anything else you can imagine.
With so many available servers, you could eventually end up in one filled with toxic, hateful, or even violent members. The best way to deal with these servers is to leave and report them. Reports can eventually result in a ban that reduces the spread of toxicity on Discord, so it’s worth the effort.
Here’s how you can report a Discord server.

Discord Rules & Guidelines
Before you begin a rampage by reporting dozens of servers, you should first look at Discord’s rules and guidelines. If a server is adhering to those rules, you probably don’t have a good reason to report it. Personal dislike or disagreement isn’t against Discord’s guidelines.
Here are some actions that violate Discord’s rules:
- Harassment, bullying, etc.
- Hate messages
- Violent content
- Animal cruelty
There are also several other rules that need to be considered.
Sending A Report To Discord Support
You might assume that sending a report is as easy as clicking a button on the Discord app. While this isn’t far from the truth, it isn’t quite that simple; you will need to use the online report form.
The online report form will require you to enter all of the relevant information into the blank fields. Before you begin completing the form, make sure you have all the information you need.
Make sure Trust & Safety is selected in the first field.
In the next field, enter your email address in case the Discord support team needs further information or to inform you of their decision.
In the next few fields, it is important that you are as accurate as possible. First, specify exactly what the problem is, whether this is spam, harassment, abuse, or any other issue that violates Discord rules.
In our case, we selected abuse or harassment, which then opens some new options. For example, the server you want to report promotes and sells hacks. To report it accurately, you should pick Cheats, hacks, malware, or cracked accounts.
In the next field, specify whether you are referring to hacks for multiplayer games, malware, or a market for stolen/cracked accounts.
The next field is perhaps the most critical part of the reporting process: a direct link to the message that you want to provide as evidence of the issue.
To obtain that link, you first need to open the Discord server, right-click the message, and select Copy Message Link.
Return to the report form and paste the link you’ve copied.
Below the message link, there are only a couple more blank fields that you need to complete.
Specify a subject and keep it as short as possible. Below this, under Description, carefully describe the issue with the server or the specific message you are reporting.
Finally, there is a field for attachments. If you have any extra message links, you can place them in a .txt or .docx file and upload the file to the form. You can also add some screenshots of the issues in the server as further evidence to support your report.
All that remains is to press the Submit button and you are done!
The support team will need some time to review the evidence, so you might not receive a response for a week or two.
Reporting Server On Third-Party Websites
If Discord does not respond to your official report form even after providing sufficient information and evidence, it might be best to look for a solution elsewhere.
Thankfully, there are numerous third-party websites dedicated to rating and ranking Discord servers.
On some of these websites, there is either an option to report the server or to rate it.
For example, on Top.gg, your only option is to leave a legitimate review with a one-star rating.
By utilizing any of the methods mentioned above, we can all work together to keep Discord a healthy and friendly environment for everyone.
