If you're using a VPN, sometimes that can affect whether or not a link works. Discord oftentimes performs IP bans, which means your IP address (whether masked or not) would be excluded from consideration by the link. Thus, changing your VPN server can help to navigate around that.

If you're not using a VPN, it's possible someone else within the same IP address range may have been IP banned, and thus you got affected as well.

hello
I’m a new person trying to join the discord but I keep being booted out and I’m unable to access the channel where I’m supposed to introduce myself. I have since changed my user as I was assuming that was the reason but I was booted even afterwards.

That seems like some bullshit. Like how the hell could someone else have an IP THE SAME AS MINE?!

IP addresses are not unique or static for average Internet users. Your ISP may reassign addresses for various reasons. Discord may ban a range of IP addresses for some reason, which might include yours. All that is out of our control.

What is in our control are the users we've banned, and so far as I can tell the username(s) you provided are not in the ban list. I'm sorry but that's the best answer I have and getting more angry about it isn't going to solve the problem.

Hey everyone, I've just edited the invite link to be https://dsc.gg/zdoom-server. The previous link had an issue where it was using a "temporary membership" feature that would auto-kick people with no roles after a while, which was problematic. This new link shouldn't be doing that. If you run into any issues with the new link, post here.

If you joined earlier and got auto-kicked before you were approved by a moderator, please use the new link to re-join.
