Discord Rule Screening | Membership Screening (New Feature)

Now you can set up a discord rule membership screening to inform new users about the rules of your discord server.

Previously and so far we used a read-only channel or a bot to set up the rules channel which is really confusing for beginners.

Rules channels are required for all the discord servers to aware of the rules and regulations.


What is Discord Rule Membership Screening?

Discord has launched the Membership streaming tab in the server settings through which you can easily set-up the rules channel with few easy steps.

Rule Screening will ask the new members to agree to your server rules before they can chat and react or DM other users.

I am really happy with this new discord feature of Membership screening and you must set-up this feature today with the below easy steps.

NOTE: You must enable Discord Community to bring the Membership screening tab in the server settings

How to Setup Discord Membership Rules Screening

Open your discord application on your PC and navigate to the server for which you want to enable the Membership Rule Screening.

Click on the drop-down beside the server name and choose Server Settings.

Now in the left-hand panel, look for the Membership Screening tab. If you don’t find it then you need to enable the discord community first.


Enable Discord Community________________________

NOTE: Skip this part if already enabled

In the server settings, click on the “Enable community” tab and then click on Get Started.

How Users Screening Work

So now when any users join the discord server with membership screening, they will have to accept the rules in order to chat and talk.

If you join any server with discord rule screening enabled, you will be getting the instruction box at the bottom which you need to finish by clicking on Complete.

I am sure discord has launched the membership screening for the testing purpose and soon depending on the performance the above options will also be added.

What do you think about these features; please let us know in the comment box.


Rules Bot or Discord Membership Screening_____________

So far we have been using rules bot for the discord server which I would say is a kind of third-party integration and not easy for the beginner to configure.

Discord membership screening on another hand is the default feature of discord and can be set up very easily in a few steps.

Though there should be some more options in membership screening which I guess will be coming soon and will make the perfect option for the rule channel.



I hope you are now aware of discord rule screening and how to setup in a few easy steps.

If you are a  beginner, I would suggest you go with this feature of discord to set up the rules.

If your server is old with huge members I would say to try this feature on a different server first.

Please let me know your feedback about this discord feature.
