Troubleshooting

Having trouble adding Print Nanny to your Discord server? Double-check the following:

  • The Print Nanny Discord Bot is added to the correct server - even in the case that the bot is sending you a Direct Message, you HAVE be on a common server!
  • The correct ID is copied from Discord
  • The correct ID type is chosen (user/channel)
  • The appropriate permissions are given to the bot during addition to the server (if you're not sure, kick it and re-add it to the server)
