Follow the prompts to create your account.



2.) Create a New Server

Once you’ve created your account, you can create a new server. Click on the ‘+’ icon in the left-hand side bar and select ‘Create Server.’

Give your server a name and choose a region.

Here are some of the key settings to consider:

Assign roles and permissions: Assign roles and permissions to members to control what they can see and do on your server.

To assign permissions, click on the menu next to the server name. Go to server settings.

Select the ‘Create Role’ option from the ‘Roles’ tab. Give each role a name. It could be based on a game ranking, a team, or anything else, such as a DJ for music.

Now, select the ‘Permissions’ tab of the role. Here, you can grant permissions for activities like sending and reacting to messages or banning members.
