    Discord is a popular community app for people to connect with each other. Although it was first introduced for gamers, it eventually became a platform for all.

    Gamers, businesses, and individuals around the world use Discord channels to communicate over topics and Livestream programs from their computers.

    If you have recently started to use Discord and wish members of your community to follow rules, you will find this article about welcome channels interesting.

    What is a Welcome Channel In Discord

     A welcome channel in Discord is an extra channel you create for new members. The main reason for the channel is to let them know what you do, how you do and what they can get from your channel.

    You let them know about the rules they must follow and other information before joining. 

    So when you create a welcome channel, it is the first thing a new member sees. If they are okay with the basic information about your server, rules and what they should expect, they can join your general channels.

    How to Make a Welcome Channel Discord

    Creating a welcome channel on Discord is the same as creating any other channel. It doesn’t really have a specific button on the app. However, a welcome message with rules and other information will need an extra step.

    Discord doesn’t allow creating a custom message for members to see before they join a channel. In that case, you will have to use a third party Discord bot. 

    That will help you create a welcome message for everyone who is willing to join your channel.

    There are several Discord bots, but I am using MEE6 currently. If you wish you can try others as well. 

    Here’s how to set up a Welcome Message in Discord using MEE6

    • Go to the MEE6  website

    • On the left-hand side, click ‘Add to Discord’

      Add To Discord

    • Scroll down and click on the ‘Authorize’

    • Follow all the authorization steps 

    • As you land on the dashboard, find ‘Welcome’

    • Enable ‘Send a message when a user joins the server’

      Send Message

    • Select a channel you want to create as a Welcome channel

    • Enter the custom message

    • And hit ‘Save’

    Example: Discord Welcome Message Template

    Here are some examples of Welcome Message

    • @Mention Moderators if required support

    • Do not publish any illegal information

    • Do not harass any member of the channel

    • Ask your queries through the #support channel

    These are just examples of rules, you can decide your rules based on the kind of server you have created.
