Maintenance mode



  • Drecq

    I agree this would be a big help. I know its rough doing updates with everyone on typing.

  • ʟɪʟ' ᴘsʏᴄʜᴏ

    Actually a good idea.

  • Skwaleks
    Would be handy in case of spambots
  • Skwaleks
    you should be able to give an eta, and a small message.
  • Bitzy_

    This screen could work like the NSFW screen. Just as a pop up when you click on the icon.
    I think using that design would be good.


    Very useful for big servers planning on big updates.

  • SalientStrike

    Yeah, this sounds like a decent idea actually. Would be cool to see if something of the sort could be implemented.

  • Sledgend

    Instead of only admins being allowed, you should be able to give certain roles the ability to join during maintenance. I don't want to have to give a member admin privileges in order for them to help me out with maintenance. That's a bit risky.

    Guys, is it really so worse to add it?

    I mean. There are a lot of features you need to add. These ideas shouldn't been suggested by users. Discord should already have it.
    So pls, ADD IT FINALLY. It has a lot of votes. Why is it not in progress? :/

  • patch

    I think this could be implemented in a more user friendly way using Staged Edits.

    a way for server administrators to edit the server without affecting the active community, a sort of containerized version where you can make bulk edits and do testing, before deploying it to the public server.

  • Darth
    Additionally, you can set automatic on/off features, for example if x amount of people join over x seconds then do an action

    How come every time I leave a suggestion thing and come back to it later, it’s all the sudden actually been posted by Nelly, and it’s slightly different and less detailed? Most of the things said in the comments are because the detail was taken out of the post when Nelly took it over. It’s really weird and I’d rather have my post just be my post and not have other people claim and change it.

    Edit: Not sure if Nelly is actually a function of Discord to better organize and simplify their feedback, but changing the actual feedback seems counter-productive.

  • Saluki

    This would really help me, please add this.

    ca m aiderai aussi

  • Shogun

    Yo, dude! 


    I'm telling you this, as a Server Owner who likes to modify stuff on his server, making new stuff, changes, etc

    this is by far the greatest feature i've seen around this feedback area.

    Also, would be great if you can set the specific message to inform people better.

    "Oops.. This server is under maintenance. Try again later!" here, you set what message you want.

    I agree with your feature and i hope we'll see it live. 


    Wish you the best!

    Discord really needs to get on this!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Although bots could be used, this would be a handy dandy core feature which allows those not familiar with bots! Paired with bulk management as role assigning multiple people and clearing category permissions, moving around various channels at once and syncing all commands, this would be incredible! I feel like this feature as well as bulk management would go entirely well. For example, clearing out an entire server of channels? Or even just moving them around and renaming them. Roles, roles- and more roles/ syncing roles per channel, but instead per xx selected channels. Please make this a feature, since when moving things around while users are online sometimes poses a difficult task when people suddenly start filling in channels they weren’t supposed to.

    You can revoke read permissions for everyone in channel settings if you have the permissions set up correctly so no one can see anything while you do maintenance. But i do see why you want something like that. Maybe a section in overview in server settings that only admin perm and above can see?
  • Callum#6052

    Maybe, if this is added, make an option where you can choose what permissions a user has when each mode is enabled!

  • bastet_of_orion
    An ability to temporarily lock channels (I'm assuming a command that would do so by role?) would be incredibly useful! That being said, raiding can partially be allayed by controlling who's allowed to give server invites, not automatically giving roles to newcomers (and toggling the @ everybody role to also forbid invite creation), cleaning up current invites to restrict which channels may have invites both on Discord and any externally-posted links, increasing the moderation level to make new users wait until they can post anything, and moderating anyone who opens the proverbial door to allow raiders in.

    @Donovan_DMC Having this be a native feature on Discord would be immensely helpful, and not everyone either knows about bots or wants to use them.

  • Ellie

    As well as I believe bots tend to lag when a server is being overloaded by a raid, in terms of having it as a native function, the server could respond to the situation faster and the initial part of the problem will be taken care of.

  • ProAceGam3r

    I like the idea, would be very helpful for myself and I would assume many others aswell

  • Nicolai9852

    Nice idea!

  • Dora

    Good idea.

  • OdorousWo1f

    Great Idea! You could also set a custom message like Server Locked: spambots

  • 예나

    Yes, we know bots can do this, but bots are not completely reliable.
    And a slip of a new mod's hand, whether on purpose or accident, renders the whole thing useless. 

    Making it an integration into Discord would be a lot better.

    And like the above comment, setting a reason would be great too - like a website maintenance page - in this way it could be used for servers that are undergoing a revamp and want a big reveal etc. 

  • HappyNewt

    I do want to note that in seeing a lot of people say "Just use a bot!" but most people dont even understand the fact of coding and most bots are pay-to-use when it comes to features like that AND it also starts to flood your user count and the user list. The idea of adding these functions is so people will less rely on bots.

  • LGA Code
    I think from a security standpoint, this is a great idea. Especially useful for servers that are recovering from a raid.
