Removing Discord Bans

They did the crime, they served the time, there is no longer a need to confine.

Whilst bans are useful in preventing pesky Discord users from spreading havok, they shouldn't always be permanent. Sometimes it would seem fitting to unban someone a few hours, days or even weeks after their ban was issued.

In order to remove a ban, you will need to be either a server administrator or have the "Ban Members" permission for the server.

First, head to your server settings:

Highlighted is the server settings button

Within your server settings, click "Bans" on the left navigation menu. Click the name of the person you wish to unban, then click "Revoke Ban", as pictured:

The revoke ban button is highlighted, which can be clicked to unban a user in Discord

After revoking the ban, you're done! It should be noted that the unbanned user will need to rejoin the server - unbanning a user will not put them back in the server automatically.
