This page lists the various "limitations" imposed upon servers in Discord, mostly to answer "how many X can I make?" questions. It's important to note that other than the 5,000 online user limit, none of these can be modified. There is currently no feature/method by which a server or user can bypass the limitations noted below.
- A user cannot be on more than 100 servers. Once this limit is hit, any server invite will display as "Invite Expired".
- The Member limit is 250,000 but can be increased by Discord to 500,000, 700,000, etc.
- Servers reaching 25,000 simultaneous online members will need to contact Support to be moved to hardware supporting larger servers - this is when members start getting "Server Unavailable" errors.
- A server can have at most 500 channels.
Once 500 channels are reached, no more channels can be created.
- A category can have at most 50 channels.
Once 50 Channels are reached, no new Channel can be created in that category.
- A server can have at most 250 roles. This also included Managed Roles.
- Servers reaching 1,000 members have the offline members list removed.
