Hey There, Discord Wizards! 🌟

Are you ready to become a master at managing your Discord server? Well, grab your virtual wizard hat because today, we’re diving into the magical world of Discord roles!

Imagine you’re the captain of a spaceship. In your crew, you’ve got pilots, engineers, and maybe a few space marshals. On Discord, you can be just like that captain by creating roles for the members of your server. Think of roles like special badges that give people different powers or access to certain areas of your server.

But wait, what if someone starts going a little wild with their powers? No worries, you can also make sure that no one goes overboard. Just like how a captain can restrict what areas of the spaceship the crew can enter, you can limit what certain members can do on your server.

Ready to learn how to keep those roles under control using your phone or computer? Let’s zoom in and figure out how to lock down those roles, making sure everyone plays by the rules on your Discord server! Stay tuned, and I’ll show you step by step how it’s done. It’s super easy, and you’ll have it down in no time! 🚀

How To Lock Given Roles On Discord Using Your PC

Alright, friends, let’s learn how to keep your Discord server as orderly as your favorite bookshelf. We’re going to lock down some roles, and I’m going to walk you through it step by step. Ready? Let’s do this on your PC!

Step 1: Jump Into Discord

First things first, fire up Discord. You can use the desktop app or just open it in your web browser. Log in to your account and get ready for some action.

On the sidebar to the left, you’ll see all the servers you’re part of. Click on the server where you want to work your magic.

Step 2: Find the Secret Server Settings

Now, look up at the top-left corner of your screen. You’ll see the name of your server. Give that a click, and a menu will pop down. Here’s where the secret door is: click on Server Settings.

Step 3: The Role Room

In the settings, look to the left again, and you’ll find a list. Hunt for the “Roles” tab and click on it. A list of roles will appear like a lineup of superheroes. Scroll through them until you find the one you want to put under a spell.

Step 4: Taming the Permissions

Click on the role you’ve chosen to see all its powers. Under “Permissions,” make sure the “Administrator” toggle is switched off. This stops anyone wearing this role from turning into a server boss.

Now, glide down to “Channel Permissions.” Click on the channel you want to safeguard. Under “Role Permissions,” click on the role again. Here’s the fun part: switch off any permissions you think are too powerful for this role.

Step 5: Lock It Down!

Almost done! Look for the “manage roles” button and turn it off to lock everything in place. Hit “Save Changes,” and voilà! You’ve just put some serious guardrails on your Discord server.

How To Lock Given Roles On Discord Using Mobile Device

You’ve already learned how to keep your server’s roles in check on a PC. Now, let’s get you sorted on how to do the same using your trusty mobile device. Ready? Here we go!

Step 1: Dive into Discord

Grab your phone and tap on that Discord app like it’s the key to your secret clubhouse. If you’re not already logged in, go ahead and do that.

Step 2: Pick Your Server Playground

See that little hamburger icon (it looks like three stacked lines) in the top left? Tap it! This will show you all your servers. Now, tap on the server you want to manage.

Step 3: Gear Up for Settings

Look to the top right corner of your screen. You’ll see three dots lined up. Tap those dots, and you’ll see a little gear icon labeled “Settings” under the server name. Give that a tap to jump into server settings.

Step 4: Control Those Roles

Scroll down to you find “User Management.” Under that, you’ll see “Roles.” Tap it, and select the role you want to put on lockdown. Once you’re in, tap on “Permissions.”

Here’s where you can switch off things like “Manage Roles” to make sure this role doesn’t get too rowdy.

Step 5: Seal the Deal

All set? Now, tap “Save” in the top right corner to make sure all those changes stick.

And there you have it! Just like that, you’re the sheriff of your own little Discord town, right from your mobile. High-five, you did it! 🙌


And that’s a wrap, folks! Whether you’re a gamer looking to build a community or just someone who loves to chat, creating your own Discord server is like opening the doors to your very own virtual hangout.

Remember, with great power comes great responsibility. By setting limits on what members can do in your server, you keep things running smoothly and avoid any chaos.

Think of it like setting the rules for a game – it makes sure everyone has a good time, and no one gets to cheat.

So, go forth and rule your Discord server with wisdom and fairness. Keep it orderly, keep it fun, and most importantly, keep connecting with your friends and fellow gamers!
