Option To Restore Deleted Servers

    Just a time limit for restoring, 7 days of something.

    A grace period for restoring something that's been deleted is standard practice everywhere but on Discord, where you are always just a click away from nuclear apocalypse.

    I'd also prefer a grace period. Recently had an experience where an administrator deleted a server without permission from other administrators and they had to build a new server from the ground up for their community. Really sucked. Would've been nice to be able to restore it and prevent the damage at all.

    I agree, with how easy it is to delete a server, it would be good if there was an option to restore it for a short while after. Lots of big companies allow this, for example, Microsofts Office 365 allow you to recover a mailbox up to 30 days after deletion.

    I also agree with the grace period for server recovery. Maybe have administrators agree on deleting the server rather than a single person with choice of pushing the big red shiny button.

    Well, my friend accidentaly deleted an old general chat that I had as a memorial of my old discord friends from 2016 summer, but now it is gone, it is really sad for me, that chat was really precious for me and I find very strange there's no way to recover it. I'm pretty sad.

    Yes to the above, God forbid two admin have a fight and one decides to delete everything they worked hard to make via the server, it's channels, pinned messages, etc.

    Allowing admins to agree to delete the server sounds good. I'm not sure if one admin can remove another admin to bypass this (and if they can that's its own can of worms) but at the very least server deletion shouldn't fall to one person.

    If that's not possible maybe set up a waiting time for the server deletion. Like if you want to delete it then it can be scheduled to be deleted in 24 or 48 hours along with a warning to staff members, or all members. That way those who want to salvage it have the time.

    I'm sure my suggestions seem a bit dramatic but just food for thought all the same.

    I heavily agree. We need that button. Back on December of last year my friend's server got hacked and deleted out of nowhere, he lost all 300+ members and progress he has made. He has rebuilt it and contacted discord support as well. Idk if they responded now. But I still miss the old one. I lost so many golden memories. If discord accounts have the option to have a time limit for deletion, why won't discord servers have that? It would be a good option to prevent any hacker from trying to cause a huge damage.

    I agree, there must be an option to restore a Deleted server. To everyone out there against this option, I'd recommend you go and delete your community with 300 Members then come back and reply here desperately.

    I would also like a grace period. Especially on mobile where you don't even need to type in the name to delete a server

    Hi.

    There Should at least be a WARNING popup saying "You are about to Delete this Channel with all its content... ARE YOU SURE YOU WISH TO DELETE???

    Deleting a server should require another comfirmation be it from 2FA, a phone text message or a email from the owner

    Same of, https://support.discord.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360029420552-Grace-Period-for-Deleted-Channel-Recovery
    And still not implemented, why the discord do this feature request forum if they ignore us?
    I losted a channel today and looks like and looks I can't restore.

    The feedback moderator answer seems to have missed the point entirely to be honest. It would be wise and smart to have a way to restore something up until a certain timelimit, just like all other big companies offer (so it isn't "impossible").

    This should be made a way bigger thing, so that they introduce this option. We should try to spread this idea.

    @ImmortalFizzz No, 2FA is useless in the discord scenario, because there are cases of people who end up trusting the wrong individual and he harmfully decides to delete everything, at that point there is no confirmation, authentication of the account that will prevent someone who has been allowed to act in a harmful way.
    You will probably think: Blame someone who trusted the wrong person.
    But let me say your line of reasoning is wrong: The human mind is not constant, in my case a longtime friend, who I knew for more than 3 years, and since then has always had administrator access without ever showing a sign , simply decided to nuke my server. He deleted the channels and left the server, without giving reason, without making excuses, simply, the next day we noticed the state of the server. (Looks like him has depression now, or whatever.)
    Although Discord is not the place for it, my friends and I trust him to exchange information and data on game projects that took years to complete.
    And from so many official gaming groups that I see on discord, I think it is past time for discord to take seriously the reliability of your application, and the lack of a grace time not only to restore but perhaps even to reverse recent actions by other administrators it is something that the discord should have already implemented.

  • Guys I wrote to support@discord.com this and maybe you could copy and send it to them too! The more people send it, the faster they can fix the problem!
    Here's the text:
    Hello! I know that many users had talked to you about this issue and I'm going to do it too becouse maybe if enough people do it you will fix it. It's about deleting channels. Often there are channels deleted by mistake, channels deleted by someone in the moderation out of revenge of some sort maybe after a fight, there are hackers and bots that specialize in deleting channels! And there are many more ways to lost a channel that is often a really valuable part of the server. There are memories, conversations and feelings on those channels that becouse of this issue we won't be able to get back. Some people lose YEARS of conversation becouse of a stupid mistake or a troll. We, the people upset by this problem propose that the channels that were deleted will be available to recover for a certain amount of time before the "true deletion" (which is the moment where the channels are no longer available to be recovered).
    Thank you for listening.
    We're counting on you to fix this problem as fast as you can.
