Discord is a great app for communicating with friends and building a close community, but managing your own Discord server is not always child’s play.
Managing old messages is one of the administrative headaches of running an active Discord server, especially when you need to delete negative or invalid messages.
Depending on the size of your Discord server, your chat room may be filled with thousands of messages. Whether you want to delete all the messages to get rid of the inappropriate ones, or just want to clear things up, it’s important to know the easiest way to do this.
In this article, I’ll show you how to manage the delayed messages on the Discord server and how to get rid of all the messages.
Two different types of Discord SMS
Discord has two different types of text messages: Direct Messages, which are private conversations between two users, and Channel Messages, which are text discussions shared by the entire group on a particular channel.
Each type of message works differently and has its own rules. When Discord was released, administrators could delete bulk messages in the application’s native interface. This led to database problems with too many administrators deleting mass messages at the same time.
As a result, the mass delete feature was removed from the native UI. Even though it’s not as easy as it used to be, it’s still possible to delete all messages on the Discord server.
How do I delete multiple messages on Discord?
Discord does not offer users a convenient way to delete multiple messages together.
Even deleting a single message is not as quick, as the user is asked to confirm after hitting the “Delete” button. In the following steps, we’ll show you some workarounds to get around this situation that will allow you to delete multiple messages together.
