With the ever-growing landscape of Discord, you can find a server for pretty much any interest you have. All you have to do is look for one.

But it can get a bit confusing if you don’t know where to begin your search, especially if you don’t have an invite

So if you’re new to Discord or having difficulty joining random/specific servers, let me guide you to your destination.

Here, you’ll be able to see a variety of popular public servers from different interests, such as Midjourney, Open AI, Genshin Impact, etc. You can also find server categories on the left side. For example, to browse servers from specific categories like songs or bands, click on Music.

If you can’t find your preferred category, use the search bar from the homepage to search for that category-specific servers.

Suppose you want to browse baking-related servers, simply click on the Explore communities search box and type baking. Now hit Enter and you’ll see all the baking-related servers in the search results.discord-join-random-public-server

After you’ve found the server where you want to join, click on it. Close the pop-up window and select Join <server name> from the top bar. You might need to verify yourself as a human from the pop-up prompt, so it’s bad news if you’re a robot.join-discord-server

How to Stop Being Added to Random Discord Servers

Speaking from personal experience, it’s really annoying when people randomly add you on random Discord servers without any reason. And the worst part is, even after you’ve left the said random server, they might add you again!

To avoid such annoying scenarios, you can either remove those people from your friends list or simply ask them to stop adding you to the server. If you want to be more polite, you can just stay in the group but keep it muted.

In case a bot is adding you to the server, you should navigate to User Settings > Authorized Apps and find the bot which has permission to add you to any servers. Once you find it, select and deauthorize the bot from your account.
