Discord Help Common Problems

Ok, before I start, I would like to say that 99% of the post in the discord help category can be fixed by looking at the docs or doing a google search. Also, this is a list of solutions based on some popular topics people talk about often. (I am on my iPad right now I will update it later)

Bot won’t start but project will: Run: curl -I https://discordapp.com/api/v7/gateway If you get 200, go on, if you get 429, follow the format and send a request here.
200 response: check if the token is bad, or if you for to put .login(). And check for outages on discord or glitch.

Sending two messages: try running enable-pnpm in the console, this will restart your app. Wait about 2-15 minutes depending on the amount of packages you have installed. Make sure you don’t have two instances running, reset your token.

How to host 24/7: Well, little tip, there are two ways. Self hosting, and Glitch premium. Glitch announce in July that they will not be allowing 24/7 hosting due to stress on the sever of people DDOSing and hosting a godly amount of projects 24/7. And a couple of FAQs on this topic:

Q: Is there a way to get around this?
A: No, there is no way. I’d you find out a way, send an email to Glitch support IMMEDIATELY!
Q: Will they ever lift the ban?
A: As of right now, no. They have been trying their best to be cheap and to not become bankrupt.

Non-related Discord bot question: Don’t post it on #discord-help, post it on #coding-help as that will leave people less confused.

LCS (last case scenario): make a request on Discord, THEN Glitch, and worst case scenario, Github.
Discord help format: (not official, but would be helpful)

It’s great to see users release guides and tutorials that help other users resolve their issue, but I feel like there’s already many other posts explaining common Discord problems and solutions. Of course, this is just my opinion and you are welcome to ignore this post. :slightly_smiling_face:


A lot of them just say report your project to the mega thread.

Actually, they do provide a lot of information and not just ask you to report to the mega thread.
