The gaming industry has witnessed an unprecedented boom in the age of the internet, and since most people are playing not from gaming parlours but their homes, it can become difficult for groups that play together to keep the conversation going, which is essential especially while playing clan games. Discord is one of many free chat tools — VoIP-enabled — aimed towards the gaming community.
Discord servers have become an excellent way for gamers to keep the conversation going while playing or outside of the gaming arena as well. With users given the power to create their own servers for free and invite their gang to have a conversation, you might end up creating more servers than you need; or might not be using a server you previously created anymore.
Whatever the case may be, it’s always a good idea to reduce clutter whenever you can so that your focus remains on the things that are important and to help you do that here we’ve put together a simple guide to help you delete your Discord server via the Discord website as well as its smartphone app.
