Hello, @ everyone! I bring you good news today, we will be opening up the... Official Hypixel Discord! Many of you have asked us about creating an official Hypixel Discord and we are pleased to announce that today we will begin inviting players to test out our Discord server. We will first be allowing ranked users (VIP or higher) to join for an initial testing period. All other users will be able to join at a later date. Currently, only voice channels are enabled on the server. We will explore the idea of having text channels in the future. The Hypixel Discord will have all Hypixel Server ranks. To participate in the Discord, you will need to have a Hypixel Forums account linked to your Minecraft account. This will automatically give you your rank from the server and will allow you to join the voice channels. If you join the Discord and do not link it to your Forums account, you will not have access to anything except for the #welcome channel which will direct you on how to link your account. Note: See here on how to connect your Hypixel Forums account to your Minecraft account. Continue reading to see how you can join the Hypixel Discord server today! ▶ Joining the Hypixel Discord You can join the Discord by going into any Hypixel lobby and typing: /discord This command will give you a link to the Hypixel website to begin linking your Forums account to your Discord account. The link will ask you if you want to link your Discord. Once agreeing to the start of the process, we will ask you to allow the Hypixel Discord Server to have access to your Discord username and avatar. Now that you have authorized us to see your Discord username and avatar, it will ask you to confirm your Discord tag. Clicking "Yes, this is my Discord Tag" will automatically open your Discord client and ask you to join the official Hypixel Discord server. And you're done, you have joined the Hypixel Discord server!▶ Some Safety Tips To ensure you enjoy your time on our Discord Server, we would like to offer you some safety tips to help you out! We recommend the following: Discord Settings > Privacy and Safety Turn your Safe Direct Messaging to "Keep me safe" or "My friends are nice". This will allow Discord to scan messages from certain people to ensure they are safe to view. Turning off "Allow direct messages from server members". This will allow only messages from people that are your Friend in Discord. Checking your "Who can add you as a friend" to make sure you are happy with the settings. You can allow everyone, friends of friends, server members, or no one to add you as a friend. Discord Settings > Connections Make sure to check what accounts and usernames you show on your Discord profile. Other users will be able to see any accounts you allow them to, so be sure you really want to display them for all to see! Do not accept friend requests from users you do not know. Do not click on links from users you do not know. ▶ Bug Fixes If you are having issues with linking your Minecraft account to the correct Discord account, try the following: 1. Go to https://discordapp.com/channels/@me in the web browser. 2. Click the gear in the bottom left to open the user settings. 3. Click "Log Out" on the bottom left. 4. Try linking again.
