Boosting Badge Perks
BONUS: NEW EVOLVING BADGE!
When you boost a server, you’ll also see this new ✨shiny✨ badge in your User Profile to display your love for boosting servers!
This badge will evolve after it reaches a certain milestone of time as you continue your streak for boosting servers!
As long as you keep boosting your favorite server, that badge will continue to evolve while you reach extra ✨✨✨ levels!
- If you stop boosting servers, or you are no longer boosting any servers at any time, your boosting streak and badge will reset to the first level!
- If you have multiple boosted servers, the badge will always be whichever is your longest Server Boost streak (or the longest milestone of time achieved for your Server Boost).
Nitro Subscription Perks
Subscribers get to enjoy Server Boosting perks depending on the plan!
- Nitro subscribers get 2 server boosts that they can apply to any server, plus a 30% discount on any future Boost purchases.
- Nitro Classic subscribers also get a 30% discount!
- Nitro Basic subscribers do not get a discount or Boost perks.

How do I Boost a Server?
Have you found your favorite cereal server? If so, you can now head into the next steps of the article!
If you're still on the fence of which server you want to boost, just remember that while you can move your boost from one server to another, there's a 7 day cool-down period to make that change! One quick note: we like to experiment here at Discord, and Boosting tiers may differ by server!
Choose your servers wisely and follow these steps below!
Step-by-Step Boosting Guide
Quick Step Summary
1. Select your server and head into the Server Boost in the Server Settings dropdown menu!
2. Confirm your selection and make sure you've selected the correct server to boost
3. Choose the number of Server Boosts you'd like to purchase!
4. Review and confirm your final payment for today's purchase!
5. YOUR BOOST IS NOW ACTIVATED!
Step 1: SELECT YOUR SERVER!
When you're ready to unleash your Server Boost, head directly to the server itself! Just click on that Server Boost button within the Server Settings dropdown menu!
Step 2: CHECK ON CURRENT BOOSTS/PERKS AND CONFIRM
A brand new screen will then appear to display the current perks of the server and you'll be able to see how many Server Boosts there already are for this specific server!
If you're still down to boost this server, make sure to press the Boost This Server button!
Step 3: CONFIRM ONE MORE TIME (WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE REALLY READY TO BOOST THIS SPECIFIC SERVER!)
You'll then see this pop up message to confirm that you've selected the correct server to boost! Whenever you're all good to go, press that Boost button!
Step 4: SELECT THE NUMBER OF BOOSTS
Once you've confirmed that you've selected the right server, now you can choose how many Server Boosts you'd like and see your subtotal for the current purchase!
You can modify the number of Server Boosts by pressing the minus (-) and plus (+) symbol!
Note: If you'd like to Boost your server directly to the next Level in one button click and save your brain from any extra math problems, check out this support article here!
Step 5: CHECK ON YOUR BILLING BREAKDOWN
Now that you've selected the amount, we'll give you a full breakdown of what you're currently paying with this new Server Boost purchase!
You'll be able to click on the "Show subscription details", if you want to see even more information on how your current purchase makes any updates to your ongoing subscriptions as well!
NOTE: For more information on our payment/billing system, check out this article here!
Step 6: BOOSTING COMPLETE!
AND CONGRATS, YOU NOW HAVE YOUR✨SERVER BOOSTS✨!!!!
After you’ve boosted your absolute favorite servers, your love and appreciation will be broadcasted to everyone within the channel, and you’ll see a new ✨shiny✨ purple diamond by your name in the server.
NOTE: If you're the server owner or have Manage Server permissions, you'll be able to select which channel this message will appear in, or toggle this option on/off within the Overview section in your Server Settings!
Server Owner/Admin View of Server Boosts
If you’re the server owner or have Manage Server permissions within the server, you’ll be able to go behind the scenes and head into the Server Boost Status tab in your server settings and see:
- Your server’s current level + perks
- How many people blessed the server with Boosts
- And how many more Boosts you need before your server reaches the next level!
- If the server is running low on Server Boost fuel and loses a Level, the server will be able to keep the Level perks for a grace period of 3 days.
- However after the 3 days, perks such as the server banner and extra emojis will not be fully removed from the server, but will become temporarily invalid until the Level is regained.
- On the other hand, the Custom Invite Link will be lost and become available to other servers after 3 days.
How do I Transfer my Server Boosts?
If you didn’t heed our warnings and you boosted your second favorite cereal server by accident or you have a new favorite cereal server, you’ll be able to transfer the Server Boost to send the boost to a new server following the User Settings Guide below!

In this tab, you'll be able to see your current ongoing Server Boosts!
- You will only see current ongoing Server Boosts! If you’ve transferred boosts between servers, the previous server will not be listed.
- If you’ve transferred your Server Boost from one server to another while maintaining a streak in the past, the date on your Boosting Streak Badge may not match any of the dates in your Server Boost tab.
Step 2: Select the boost that you would like to transfer
When you've decided the boost you want to transfer, press on the three dot (⚬⚬⚬) icon beside that boost, and then select Transfer Boost
Step 3: Select the server you want to boost
You'll now see new pop-up menu with a list of your current servers where you can start the process of bestowing your Server Boost on the server of your choice!

Step 4: Confirm your boost transfers
Before you unlock the treasure to that new server though, make sure you double, triple, quadruple check that you’re transferring your Server Boost to the correct server!
When you're ready, press that Yes, Transfer Boost button!
Note: When you move your server boost, the server may lose the progress towards its Boost Level!
