Before getting to the heart of this tutorial and explaining yourself in detail how to log out of a Discord serveryou might find it helpful to know what the differences are between a channel and a Discord server.
A server it is nothing more than a large group in which users accessing subgroups called channels, they can chat, share files and start audio conversations. It can be created and customized for free by any user, with the possibility of unlocking additional features by activating a subscription Discord Nitro.
THE channelstherefore, they are rooms created by the owner of the server in which users registered on the server itself can send text messages (text channels) and start real voice chats (voice channels). Also, they can be created read-only channelswhich allow the server owner to publish any communications without any possibility of response from the subscribers e private channelsaccessible by request and approval by the creator of the server or its moderators.
