I own a Discord guild and would like to add custom emoji like other guild have done.

In the below screenshot, it shows some indicator emoji that I cannot type, such as :blurple_h:.

    @ale I believe this question is referring to the Discord chat client. This question should be on topic for Web Apps, though it could arguably also belong on Super User.

  • @StevenVascellaro Yes, it's a Discord server. Apr 16, 2017 at 17:22
  • It may be worth discussing in chat or on Meta whether Discord questions belong on Super User or Web Apps. I'm personally leaning towards Super User.

In your guild settings panel, granted you have the Manage Emojis permission (you are the guild owner so you have all permissions), you will have a tab named "Emoji".

Emoji tab selected in guild settings panel

From there you can upload, rename, or remove custom emoji for that guild.

All 3 ways to alter server emoji

Here is how you can do those things:

  • Clicking the blurple button saying "Upload Emoji" will allow you to pick a picture and upload an emoji using that picture
  • Clicking an emoji's name will allow you to rename it (2+ characters, with alphanumeric characters and underscores)
  • Clicking the remove button that appears when you hover over an emoji's row will allow you to delete it

Remember, you can only have 50 emoji in a single guild.
