(Unofficial) Discord server rules suggestions list

Author's Note

I'll start off with letting you know this is a fork from someone else. However, for some bizarre reason, this is the one everyone finds, so I better get round to updating this. Credit to Cristiano#2233 for the original idea.

Also, I've had a lot of people saying the rules are to strict. If you pick all the rules here, you're right, it would be very strict. However the rules below are guidelines! They are there for you to pick the ones you desire, you can ignore ones you don't want. Hopefully they might help with rules you wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

Introduction

You just had a great idea for a new Discord server and immediately created it but now you need not only to set up the channels and permissions but also to grind through the daunting task of coming up with a list of rules.

There are so many things to consider, so many possible ways that people could ruin your server, and you also wonder about how you can design your rules in such a way that the members will be able to enjoy their time on your server but also not go overboard.

Wouldn't it be so nice if there was a template or a list of rules that you could quickly copy, paste and tweak? Fear not, you just found it!

With this simple list—which I intend to keep updating as I find good ideas on more servers—you can get some inspiration for your own server rules. Feel free to copy and modify. No crediting is required.

If you would like to suggest more items or recommend a server that has a good set of well-structured, well-thought-out rules, feel free to leave a comment below, or to contact me on Discord (Contact info below)

Note: Some of the rules may sound contradictory. That's because I just made a list of all the rules that I could come up with. Whether you keep or take out any of them is completely up to you.

Note 2: A lot of the text chat rules can be used for voice chats as well, so I didn't repeat them.

No memes? Huh...interesting. Your discord server probably sucks. This is a decent set of rules but i feel that you should condense this to make it more easier to read instead of just listing a bunch of bullets. No offensive messages or nicknames - Anything that a reasonable person might find offensive. I found this on a Reddit post that maybe you should use instead. You can add more obviously but I feel that this is an easier and nicer looking way to set your standards.

No spam - This includes but is not limited too, loud/obnoxious noises in voice, @mention spam, character spam, image spam, and message spam.

No Gorey, Sexual, or scary content - Screamer links, porn, nudity, death.

No harassment - Including sexual harassment or encouraging of harassment.

Use the appropriate channels.

No self or user bots - These are in some cases against the discord TOS and if you need a bot for something use one of the bots already in the server

Swearing is allowed so long as it isn't directed at another member.

There may be situations not covered by the rules or times where the rule may not fit the situation. If this happens the moderators are trusted to handle the situation appropriately. I you have a complaint about a staff member you may submit the complaint here: link to google forms or something where the user can explain there complaint. Make sure you have absolute trust in whoever has access to this

Huh, people are commenting on this? Lets clear some shit up.

1: This is a fork
2: I did this for my use as it has some things I might forget.
3: I did forget about this anyway. I can make my own rules, I don't need this list.
4: This isn't a public gist by choice. I think it was made public because of the fork, but in any case I don't see an option to hide it now.

How did you guys even find this? I treat gist as a little notebook of gists I find here.

TL;DR, Go bug the original owner. This is a fork and doesn't represent my views. It's just a list I decided to save for a few ideas. The list overall is way to much...

I'll give this a day and save the list elsewhere before deleting it here. Don't know why people are showing up here and even staring this crap.

@Ryonez most people do not notice that this is a fork, and your fork is very popular on Google when searching for Discord Rules (this shows up instead of the original one) so this is why everyone comments on this.

TL;DR, Go bug the original owner. This is a fork and doesn't represent my views. It's just a list I decided to save for a few ideas. The list overall is way to much...

Don't take the comments personally, they are not directed at you but at the author of the rules.

It's just a list I decided to save for a few ideas.

It is way easier to star it and click on Starred gists to find it than forking it and risking what already happened (people finding it).

It would be nice if you could find time and improve somewhat these rules, but I understand you are probably busy and don't have time to deal with this as well. Just saying in case you find some time and want to do it 😄

Hmm, you have some good points.

I'm not against maintaining the list, just more surprised that all this was happening.

I think I might tweak the list, make it into recommendations I'd make, and add some pointers and links for new server owners/staff. So many don't understand how permissions are done with discord or make simple mistakes.

Alright, I'll take care of this next week.

I use this list quite often when making servers, Though I do tweak it to fit my needs a lot of these are actually really good to use. I Pretty much just re-worded and took out most of the redundancies. I have a section for "Memes" In my server so that the general chat is not flooded with them seeing as they are used ALL THE TIME lol. As for any of the rules I have separate tabs so that if someone does not want to see NSFW they do not have to see it but the others can. These rules are not meant to be used word for word for all servers so if you do not like some of them, Just take them out. :) Plain and simple.

It seems like the original creator has deleted their post, which now has made this appear as the first version (and every other fork seem like a fork of this).

In case you (someone who might want to comment about the rules) happen to read this comment, and have missed a very important part at the beginning of them, let me remind you:

They are there for you to pick the ones you desire, you can ignore ones you don't want.

This is a list with every possible rule the author thought of. You select the ones you want, and remove the others.
Please don't comment about how strict the rules are. Yes, if you enforce them all they would be too strict, but you are not helping. This only creates more notifications for the people who have them enabled, who are annoyed at these kind of posts, and adds nothing that hasn't already been addressed to the conversation.

There is a fork button at the top, which allows you to create your own version based on these rules. You can fork this, remove the rules you do not want, and then have that link for when you need it, or if you want to share a lighter version with others.

Make sure the suggestion you are about to make hasn't already been addressed, and even if it has ensure that what you are about to post will add something to the point someone else did and won't just repeat the same thing.

Thank you.

why tf are these kids trash talking this dude :/ Ye we get it "No Memes" but if u had actually read his oldest comment saying It was a fork you would understand why. You guys are dumbasses for talking such bullshit that no one would give a fuck about. If you don't like these rules just find another one, stop hating on a person who made RULES for us when ur lazy ass couldn't even.

Treat this as a starting point, and tweak to your hearts content.
