    There may be instances where you need to ban or unban users from your Discord server to maintain order and safety. This guide will help you understand how to manage your Discord server effectively, specifically focusing on how to ban and unban users.

    This tutorial is perfect for server administrators, community managers, or anyone looking to create a safe and enjoyable space for their community members.

    Inviting a User to Your Discord Server

    Discord app on desktop
    Browser app (left) and desktop app (right) will be used to demonstrate how to send a friend request, and then ban and unban the user on the left.

    Accepting an Invite to a Discord Server

    Muting, Banning, Disabling Video, or Kicking a User from Your Discord Server

    If you need to manage a user's permissions, first right-click on their username. You'll see several options. You can mute the user, which prevents them from sending messages in any of the server's channels. You can also disable their video stream.

    Another option is to block a user. This will hide their messages in a shared server. You'll see a message like "blocked message show message" and you can choose to view the message or ignore it.

    You can also timeout a user, which temporarily restricts their ability to interact on the server. During this timeout, the user may be unable to send messages, react to messages, or participate in voice chats, depending on how the role's permissions are configured.

    If you want to remove a user from your server, you can kick them. However, keep in mind that they can rejoin again. If you want to permanently remove them, you can ban them from your server. When banning, you can choose the reason and even decide to delete their message history. After clicking on the red ban button, the user will automatically leave the server.

    If you want to unban a user, click on the server settings button, locate the option called "bans" on the left-hand side, and click on the username of the user you want to unban. Click on the "revoke ban" button, and the user will be able to join your server again.
