What is Discord Admin Community

Discord Admin Community, or DAC for short, is a space for community owners, admins, and moderators to come together and discuss the subject matter of community management.

According to Discord themselves, “Here you can learn more about features, use best practices, and meet other members who want to improve their communities!”

Here, you will find help regarding anything related to community building and management. That is, server insights, resources, moderation, safety, and even coding & bots.

Join Requirements

Joining the admin community is very simple, in fact, the requirements are pretty simple. Here’s what they are.

  • Have at least 500 members in your community
  • Server has to be at least 3 months old
  • Community feature must be enabled
  • Have at least a 40% monthly member retention rate

Can only Admins join the community?

No. The community is open to anyone who has MANAGE SERVER permissions in the server. Given that, the concerned server meets all the requirements.

There, the server will open to the owner, the administrators, the moderators (if they have MANAGE SERVER permissions). In essence, anyone with that permission in a qualified server may join the admin community.

How to Join Discord Admin Community

  • Go to your Server Settings
