Ready to Unleash the Boost?
As long as you have an active Nitro subscription, or an active Grandfathered Nitro (Legacy) subscription, you can boost one server through your User Settings or directly within the server of your choice.
Note: If you currently have an active Grandfathered Nitro (Legacy) subscription, you will automatically get a Server boost as well! You can learn more details by clicking here.
While you can move your boost from one server to another, there's a 7 day cool-down period to make that change (more details on this below), so you better remember to choose wisely and follow these steps below!
User Settings Guide
If you’re on the desktop or browser client, click on that cog icon on the bottom left of your window to head into your Discord Nitro tab in the User Settings!
Once you’re there, click on that “Select a Server” button to start the process of bestowing your Server Boost on the server of your choice!
Note: You must be a member of the server in order to Server Boost it! Otherwise, the server won't show up in this list!
Before you unlock the treasure to that server though, make sure you double, triple, quadruple check that you’re sending your Server Boost to the correct server!
Once you’ve fully committed to your server, when you go back into the User Settings, you’ll now see your beloved boosted server shining bright in your Discord Nitro tab!
After you’ve selected your absolute favorite server, 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!
Boosting Badge Perks
BONUS: When you boost a server, you’ll also see this new purple ✨shiny✨ badge in your User Profile to display your love for that Boosted server!
You'll be able to watch that badge evolve as you continue your streak for your Server Boost! As long as you keep boosting your favorite server, that badge will continue to evolve while you reach extra ✨✨✨ levels (✨s shown below)!
You’ll also be able to directly boost the server through the server itself! Just click on that ✨shiny✨ purple jewel icon by the Server Name in the upper left hand corner, or click the Nitro Server Boost Button in the Server Settings dropdown menu!
A popup will then appear to display the current perks and also confirm your Server Boost for this server!
Server Owner/Admin View
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!
I promise that 8 + 2 equals 10.
Note: 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 vanity URL will be lost and become available to other servers after 3 days.
Oops I boosted the wrong server again….
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 remove the Server Boost to send the boost to a new server! Just head into your Discord Nitro tab in your User Settings, click on that “Remove Boost” button and confirm that removal!
Note: You will need to wait 7 days to boost another server after boosting your initial server, and you can't boost the same server multiple times! Reminder again, you can only boost one server at a time, and you only have one boost to use!
Running Low on Fuel?
If your Nitro subscription is canceled at any point, that extra shiny Server Boost badge will sadly be removed from your profile, but not all is lost! You’ll have a grace period of 3 days to resubscribe to Nitro to add more fuel to the tank and recharge your Server Boost to the server!
Note: Nitro Classic subscribers will need to upgrade their subscription before boosting a server. For more info on the different types of Nitro subscriptions, check out this link here!
More Boosts Soon™?
