If you are new to Discord, you might experience some problems with locating certain elements and options of the software.
Although not overly complex, Discord still sports a good deal of features and for users that are not familiar with this kind of software, the learning curve might still be a bit steep to start with.
These are all questions you might be having at some point.
Also, yet another question that frequently pops up with new Discord users is the question of where to actually see how many members are on a certain server.
Good question, right?
But don’t worry, you will know in a second!
How to check the member count of a specific server on Discord?
If you are either the server owner or have administrator permission on the server, all you need to do is to click on the down-arrow next to the server’s name (top left corner of the screen) and then go into Server Settings (desktop). From the left sidebar, choose “Members” and there you will see the current server member count. If you are just a regular member on a server, it is easiest to check the server’s member count by accessing the server on a mobile phone. Just open up Discord, then tap on the server’s name, scroll down a bit and you will immediately see the server’s member count (on mobile, this works on every server, regardless of wether you are the server owner or just a regular member of the server in question).
How to check the member count of a Discord server when using a Desktop Device
If you do own the Discord server, checking the member count is a piece of cake: Simply click on the down-arrow next to the server’s name, then head over to server settings, then click on members (left sidebar) and you will see how many members your server counts.
How to check the member count of a Discord server when using a mobile device
If you are on a mobile device, checking the member count of any Discord server is very straightforward. Just open up the Discord app, then tap on the server’s name (Screenshot 1), then scroll down a bit and you will immediately see the server member count (Screenshot 2).
Other ways to check the member count of a Discord server
If you are accessing Discord on a desktop device, checking the member count can be troublesome. This especially holds true if you either don’t own the server or don’t have special permissions on a server to easily check the members count.
However, there are a couple of ways for you to find out how many members a certain server has.
If you do have a server invite link, you may post the server invite link in a random channel on Discord and, if you are not yet a member of that specific server, you will be able to see the member count there.
However, keep in mind that this only works if you have not yet joined the server in question.
Another great way to find out how many members a certain server has is to use the website disboard.org
Disboard lists Discord Servers. It is the Google for finding Discord servers, basically.
That said, you could look for a specific server on Disboard and if it is indeed listed, you will just need to head over to the profile of that server and the member count will be visible there.
Also, if you would like to display the member count on your own Discord server, you could make your own bot and make it display the server count.
