HELP!! Banned, but not actually banned.

    This is exactly what has happened to me. I got banned for having an alt, then later unbanned on my main account. Then two of my most important servers suddenly disappeared and I had the same issue where I didn't even get banned but it didn't let me rejoin. I have no clue why this has happened and I just find it very strange.

    This has also just happened to myself. the server went missing within 5 minutes of me posting a message in the server. I found this quite confusing as I am the co-owner of the server. I immediately tried the discord link we have placed on out website and it stated. " Uh-oh. Looks like you've been banned." I contacted the server owner and he looked through the audit log and the bans list, found nothing. and Dyno bot said that I left the server. I've tried many different invite links and links from different people none of them work. I can join other servers perfectly fine. Hopefully we can get a solution as it is quite frustrating being unable to be on a server that you co-own.

    Hi Zen,

    I'm relieved someone else is having the same issue. Hopefully the more of us there are the quicker Discord Support will be in finding a solution. A small update to my situation is that I cannot join around three quarters of the Disboard servers, while some are still perfectly fine! It says the invite is invalid and I may be banned, when I have never even joined the server before. The whole thing is bizarre and needs to be rectified ASAP!

    Hey guys,

    So.. I solved the problem! 

    For me the issue was phone verification, so to remove the number from my main account to regain server access...

    1) I went to an incognito tab in google and joined a random server from disboard.com.

    2) You must do this while having your main account open in the discord PC app and in another tab on the web browser. The goal is that discord will flag the new account and think it is suspicious, and they will ask you to verify

    3) Select 'verify with phone' and type in your number. You will need to wait a bit before you try this fix, because if you try it too soon after verifying on your main account it won't let you - there's a cooldown time.

    4) Once your phone is verified, the number will have been removed from your main account and you can rejoin the servers you lost!

    Optional: If you don't want your phone number floating around discord in a ghost account, make your newly phone verified account into a secure account with a password/email, then delete it - thus removing your number from discord altogether.

    I hope this helps!

    -Lily

     

    P.S. This solution only really works if you've been banned from the server previously on alt accounts that are linked to phone numbers - the issue with this comes when you verify your phone on your MAIN account, this is why you are banned without warning.

    I just got the same problem!!!! PLS FIX IT!


    I activated 2FA and as soon as I verified my phone ONE of my 10 servers dissapeared from my list! I activated it at 17:11 my time, I did it on my pc and then I re-logged in on my phone, and by 17:14 the server was gone! 


    I am not in 100 servers, I have not been banned and I have no alt accounts (ie my IP has not been banned).
    To the admins & owner it says that I left in their logs (the admins have given me screenshot proof of the Dyno log of me "leaving") but I did not leave - I'm sure of it! They obviously didn't ban me since we are friends and they have tried to re-invite me. When they try to send me a new links to their server it says "invalid invite - looks like you've been banned" or "invalid invite - the user is banned from this guild". I have tried restart, relog, clearing cache - nothing worked.. 


    Discord, pleasssse fix this horrible bug!

    I was banned from a Discord server so I tried to join on my alts, except all of them were banned too. I asked the owner to unban me so they did. They sent me an invite but, it said “uh-oh! It’s looks like you’ve been banned” this has been going on for about 3 days now.  mooman#2995

    Happened to me too. Very annoying.

    Because I haven’t linked my account to a phone number, your workaround won’t fix it.

    Great. It's happened again(I sent another message a couple days ago). Two people that can't join a server because it says they were banned. One was a normal member(just left and it said they were banned), the other was the co-owner(got banned by the owner as a joke, but can't rejoin even if unbanned). I've tried to help both rejoin, but nothing is working. I'm so frustrated- hhh. None of them have alts, so it's nothing to do with the IP being banned. Someone please help-

    I just somehow solved this, at least in one case!
    So I randomly thought of unbanning the discord system (Discord#0000) bc it was banned in our server. This automatically solved the issue and the user that was having this trouble was unbanned

    This just happened to my server with a friend too and we receive no help from Discord support. Unbelievable that this issue is still not fixed after a year.

    so , i have the same problem but i could fix it
    all you have to do if have two accounts
    is deleting one of them and make sure that your account has the full informations that discord is asking you to add it and that should be enough to solve the problem
    good luck

    Okay the same thing happened to me and here's how the actual solution:

    1. Check if you have added a phone number to your account - The reason you got banned from the server was that you put your phone number on another account and whilst on the same server, got banned. So remove this ASAP. 
    2. Next, go to the account and disable the account.
    3. Open up any VPN and whatever you do, do NOT use the same IP as what you have. 
    4. Next, sign back into the account and once you do, press 'restore account'. 
    5. You will be logged back in and free to join back any server that you 'got banned from' 
    Hope this works (:

    Hi Lily, this happened to me earlier today, unfortunately, your fix didn't work for me and I am unsure of what to do next. I am a moderator in a server and it kicked me off if you would be able to contact me on discord orenji#2529 it would be much appreciated.

    Hello, happened to me too

    Somehow I wanted to disable 2FA then reenable it. Once done I saw that I got banned on 2 servers.

    I don't know what this happened, tho I would like to know why it happened.

    Unbanning everyone from a discord server is a bad idea, then the bad people could come back and cause trouble again

    The solution is simple; either you were ip banned, or it has something to do with phone verification. If you verified your phone then follow Lily's solution:

    If you were ip banned; use a hotspot for discord, then you should be able to join back by just clicking on the invite link.
