What’s the difference between Deleted and Disabled account?
There’s a lot of confusion circulating among Discord users. Many users are unaware of the difference between deleting and disabling a Discord account. Deleting and disabling an account is an entirely different thing. Don’t get confused between these two. Once you delete your account, you can’t get it back. In such cases, users have to make a new account. On the other hand, if you chose to disable your account, then you can retrieve it whenever you want to.
Discord account disabled for no reason
Usually, Discord doesn’t disable your account for no reason, maybe the content that you are posting is demeaning and objectionable as per the community guideline issued by Discord. Harassing, reporting other users for no reason, and spreading viruses are some of the factors that can get your account disabled. So make sure that none of the content is questionable.
Discord account disabled for suspicious activity
Generally, Discord disables accounts on the basis of violating their terms, and community guidelines. However, in case your account was disabled because of a ban wave, there is a high chance that it was falsely flagged. In this case, Discord is removing all the false flags, and you will be able to log in after some time.
Discord account disabled for spamming
More often than not, Discord disables users’ accounts on the basis of spamming, or platform abuse. Many users spam the discord chat by sending a large number of messages in a short period of time and therefore get flagged by Discord’s anti-abuse measures. If your account gets disabled then you can contact the support team via their help center or through their email. You can also look up their Twitter or Facebook page. However, if none of these works, then you can submit an appeal, scroll up, and check how to do the same.
