If you want to have a channel on your Discord server where people can share explicit content or use foul language, you must mark that channel as an NSFW (Not Safe For Work or Not Suitable for Wumpus) channel first. That way, it blocks users under the age of 18 and also displays an “Adult Content” warning message to any user when they opened the channel. So how to create an NSFW channel on Discord.

How to Make an NSFW Channel on Discord

Whether you are using the Discord app or website, the process remains the same.

1. Select the channel that you want to make as an NSFW Channel. Alternatively, you can create one by clicking on the Server name > Create Channel.

2. Here select the text channel option and give a name to your channel. Text channels can be marked as NSFW channels but voice channels cannot be marked and so bad language is not permitted.

3. Now, hover the mouse on the channel name in the sidebar. Then click on the cog icon beside the channel name that appeared.

Opening Channel Settings

4. In the channel settings, select Overview and scroll down to find the NSFW Channel option. Enable the toggle beside the option to mark the channel as an NSFW channel.

How to Make an NSFW Channel on Discord Mobile

If Over 18 and Still Can’t Acess NSFW Channels

You are shown a warning message if you are above 18. Tap Continue to proceed or Nope to get back. If you are under 18 years though, Discord will not show you even the channel.

Discord doesn’t allow users to change their age manually. You will need to contact support for that. If you are above 18 and still can’t access NSFW channels, Discord may have collected wrong age on your profile.

1. Simply submit a request to Discord.

2. On the submission page, open the drop-down menu under What we can help you with? and select Help and Support.

3. Add the subject as Update my age information and fill the remaining form accordingly.

4. Now take a photo of yourself holding a photo ID that carries your correct date of birth and also a piece of paper with your full username.

5. Add it as an attachment to the form and submit.

Discord will update the details and send you a mail if verified, or they can reach out to you on Discord before updating.

Rules to Remember

Just because the channel is marked as an NSFW channel, doesn’t mean any type of content is allowed on it.

Harassment, threatening, child pornography, animal abuse, spam, breaking DMCA violations, sharing virus corrupted files, making any attempt to steal other’s accounts are not permissible and still can lead to your account deactivation or even deletion.

Not Suitable for Wumpus

Though you still have to follow a few rules, you get more freedom and better control when you make your channel not suitable for Wumpus. Additionally, you can also discover new servers that have enabled NSFW. Just make sure it is safe to use in your office!
