From there, you can personalize your account with a unique username and profile pic, and even create a different nickname for each server you frequent. Besides the list below, you can discover servers that might interest you through Discord's "Explore Public Servers," and plenty of your favorite creators might also have invite links for their servers on their YouTube, TikTok, Twitch profiles and more.
