Hey there! Today I want to talk about something that I find really useful in Discord – creating a verify channel. Adding a verify channel to your server can help ensure that only trusted members gain access to certain areas or features. It’s a great way to maintain security and keep unwanted trolls or spammers out.
Now, before I dive into the details of how to set up a verify channel, let me just say that I’ve had my fair share of experiences with unruly members in my Discord server. It can be frustrating and time-consuming to deal with them, which is why I highly recommend using a verify channel. It’s made my life so much easier and my server a much more pleasant place to be.
Step 1: Creating a Role
The first thing you’ll want to do is create a new role specifically for verified members. This role will be assigned to members once they pass the verification process. You can name the role whatever you like, but I suggest something like “Verified” or “Trusted Member”.
To create a new role, you’ll need to have the proper permissions. If you’re the server owner or have administrative privileges, you should be good to go. Here’s how you can create the role:
- Open your Discord server and click on the down arrow next to the server name.
- Select “Server Settings” from the dropdown menu.
- In the left sidebar, click on “Roles”.
- Click on the “+” button to create a new role.
- Give the role a name and customize its permissions as desired. Make sure to enable the necessary permissions for the verify channel.
- Save your changes.
Step 2: Creating the Verify Channel
Now that we have our role set up, it’s time to create the verify channel where members will go through the verification process. Here’s how to create the channel:
- Open your Discord server and click on the “+” button next to the “Text Channels” category.
- Give the channel a name, such as “verify” or “verification”.
- Under the “Permissions” section, make sure to deny the “Send Messages” permission for @everyone, so only verified members can participate in the channel.
- Save your changes.
Note: If you want to allow existing members to become verified without going through the verification channel, you can manually assign the “Verified” role to them.
Step 3: Setting up the Verification Process
Now it’s time to set up the actual verification process for the channel. This can be done in a variety of ways, depending on how you want to handle it. Here’s a common process that many servers use:
- Create a custom bot or use a third-party bot like MEE6 or Dyno to handle the verification process.
- Set up the bot to post a message in the verify channel with instructions on how to become verified.
- Include a command that members can use to start the verification process, such as “!verify” or “!getverified”.
- Once a member uses the command, the bot can then send them a direct message with further instructions.
- These instructions may include things like asking the member to provide additional information or complete certain tasks to prove their authenticity.
- Once the member successfully completes the verification process, the bot can assign the “Verified” role to them.
And that’s it! You now have a fully functional verify channel in your Discord server. This channel will ensure that only verified members can access certain areas or features, providing an extra layer of security to your server.
I hope you found this guide helpful. Adding a verify channel to your Discord server can greatly improve the overall experience for you and your members. Plus, it’s a great way to prevent unwanted disruptions and maintain a positive community. Give it a try and see the difference it can make!
Have fun moderating your server and happy Discord-ing!
