LGBTChat Discord Gatekeeper

As an LGBTChat Gatekeeper, you will be the face of the community to our new members! Your role is to read any new introductions and scan them.

The purpose of our gateway is to keep our community safe from any trolls so as you can imagine this is a very important role.

If you’re an active member of our community and you’re interested in this role, apply here by creating a new topic and let us know why you’re a good fit.


As a gatekeeper you will gain access to two new channels:


Verification: channel is used for new community members to post a short introduction about themselves:

Approval: this is where you will spend most of your time as a gatekeeper. Here you can discuss an introduction with the others and will be notified each time someone joins, when someone joins you will see the following message:

Only once you have read the message and if the member meets our conditions you may approve them.

To approve a new member type:

?approve @username

You can also use Discord User IDs to approve new members to get a user ID follow this guide: Where can I find my User/Server/Message ID? – Discord

?approve 110860996859420672

Then you must delete their short introduction, if they wish they can post a more detailed introduction in our introductions channel


  • To comply with Discord terms of service we cannot approve anyone under the age of 13.

Evaluate if they are a troll:

To evaluate if they are a troll or not here are some top tips

  • Missing details - indicates they are a troll, you can ask for more detail
  • No profile picture - this isn’t always a sign but something to look out for
  • Connected Accounts - again not always a sign but something to look out for
  • Duplicate - You can copy and paste the introduction into the search bar to see if it’s just been copied

Sometimes we get it wrong and let in a troll, if you do this please don’t worry. Tag a mod in the Discord server and someone will hop on and ban them.
