Discord server moderators reserve the right to ban certain members from their servers if they feel their actions are not welcome.
However, if you ban someone by mistake or they successfully apologize for their misdoings, then you can easily unban them. So, how do you go about on an iPhone?
To unban someone from your Discord server on your iPhone, navigate to the server settings and select the “Bans” option from the navigation. Next, tap on the username of the banned person and tap the “Unban” button at the bottom.
Please read the article below for a more in-depth tutorial on how to unban someone on an iPhone and other important information.
Simple Steps to Unban Someone on Discord
Unbanning someone on Discord takes less than a few minutes, give or take. Here is a simple way to go about it:
Step #1: Choose the Median
To access Discord on your iPhone, you can either use the mobile app or log in to the website version through Safari. Also, it’s imperative to note that you can only unban someone if you are the server’s admin.
If you aren’t, you will need to contact the admin and ask them to make you an admin or tell them to unban the culprit on your behalf.
Step #2: Launch the Server
Once you are on Discord’s home screen, tap the hamburger menu in the top left corner and choose the server where the banned person is.
If you are on many servers, you can use the search feature at the bottom of the screen to make it easier to locate the server you want.
Step #3: Navigate to the Server Settings
To open the server settings, tap the three dots in the top right corner next to the server’s name. Next, tap on “Settings.”
Please note that the location of the server settings might depend on the Discord version you are currently using. This tutorial is written for Discord’s iPhone app.
Step #4: Tap on the Ban Option
Once you open the server settings, scroll down till you locate the “Bans” option and tap on it.
Step #5: Unban the Person
A list of all the people you have banned on that particular server should be on your display. Skim through until you locate the username of the person you want to unban, then tap on their username.
A pop-up will appear asking if you wish to revoke the ban on the person; tap the “Unban” button at the bottom to unban the user.
Possible Reasons Resulting in Bans on Discord
Discord has a trust and security team that ensures the site’s stringent rules and regulations are adhered to. If you break the rules, the team reserves the right to permanently or temporarily ban you (rare).
Also, every server admin reserves the right to ban you for whatever reason. It could even be that they don’t like you. Below are a few possible reasons why people get banned on Discord:
- Sharing unwanted explicit content
- Spamming the server with messages or joining the server with spam accounts
- Exposing private messages without the consent of the other parties
- Advertising competing for discord channels in the streams of another server
- Spreading misinformation about sensitive topics such as terrorist attacks, political happenings, and so forth
- Posting copyrighted media on the server
- Sharing Not-Safe-For-Work channels on a Safe-For-Work discord server
- Sharing suicidal, blackmail, or graphic media content
- Arguing with other members in an offensive way
Sites like Discord are managed by rules to ensure all subscribers are comfortable, safe, and respected.
If someone breaks the rules, the server moderators and administrators can quickly ban you.
However, if someone is banned by mistake or apologizes for their mistake, they can be easily unbanned.
No, they won’t. They will only know they have been banned from the server when they try to access the server, and a notification stating the link has expired pops up.
If the Discord Trust and safety team mandated the ban, the only way to get unbanned is to contact customer care and send an appeal explaining the problem and why you think the ban was unfair. From there, the appeal can either be accepted or rejected.
If a server moderator mandated the ban, then you could send a private message to the operator and apologize for your actions, then plead to be unbanned. However, the aforementioned is only possible if the operator hasn’t blocked you.
If the server is public, then it is possible to do so. However, you will need to change your physical location because bans are implemented via your IP address.
If the ban is discord trust team mandated, you will permanently lose access to the site unless you appeal. In addition, if the ban is server moderator-mandated, you won’t be able to see the messages, replies, and members of the server.
