In the subject section, be clear with your motive and state what happened in short, for example:

“[IMP] User Report for inappropriate content.”

In the description box, explain the entire problem you face very briefly and make sure that you do not leave anything like the user id, server id, channel name, message link that you have received or sent. This will help Discord’s security team inspect the matter thoroughly.

Here is an illustration of how you should share information in the Description box:

User ID: xxxx xxxx xxxx

Server ID: xxxx xxxx xxxx

Message Link: xxxx xxxx xxxx

[Then explain your reason for reporting here]

Step 5: Once you have entered all the information, then scroll down and click on ‘Submit.’
