Submitting a Bug
Submitting a bug report might seem overwhelming with the length and detail the command requires, but once you break it down it is not so bad. The command consists of several flags that break it up into separate sections.
Note: Before submitting a bug report, make sure it is not listed as one of the unsupported report types or a duplicate of another bug report. You should be checking the #approval-queue, #android-bug-reports, #desktop-bug-reports, and #ios-bug-reports in Discord Testers as well as https://bugs.discord.com.
|!submit Flags||Flag Meaning|
Begins a new step in the reproduction steps.
Note: The first step doesn't need a "-" in front of it.
|-c||Client Settings (Discord build)|
|-s||System Settings (Phone: device + os version, PC: os version)|
- Here's an example of what this might look like altogether with the !submit command:
!submit -t This is a title -r Submitting from - The HC - Gets you - Banned -e This is what is supposed to happen -a This is what actually happens -c Canary 80085 (b935fcb) -s Windows 10 Pro x64 v20H2 (OS Build 19042.746)
