    If the Server creator transfers ownership to someone else, will the Server creator still have full control over the entire server? Or would the Server creator's full control be relinquished when ownership is transferred?

    @N_Studios Once you transfer ownership you no longer have full control and depend on server permissions.

    Can you allow multiple users to have ownership rights? (I.e. Two people manage a gaming guild and have equal rights to assets, servers, comms, etc.)

    Never knew this feature existed, nice to discover new things everyday.

    @Thirteen - At the moment server ownership is limited to one person.

    Do all installed bots transfer to the new owner?

    @Malisent Bots don't reside with the same permissions as servers- they stay in the API developer account page in our Developer website.

    If the owner of a server disappears, is there any way that ownership of a server can change hands?

    @lfc_1 If they're gone and haven't logged into their account for over a month, we can assist you at supporT@discordapp.com

    What do I do if I get demoted from my own server when I give ownership to someone else as I have been banned from my own server before

    I suddenly lost my ownership on my own server, how do I get it back?

    @Andypyro Could you email the details of the situation of how you lost ownership to support@discordapp.com and we can help isolate the issue!

    If the original server owner leaves the server, is ownership given to the next highest role?

    @Nick If your server is a public server that has more than 100 members in it, and the server owner hasn't accessed their account for at least a month, you can message us at support@discordapp.com and we'll be able to help transfer the server ownership to the next highest moderator/admin or the user with the most permissions that has been on the server for the longest time period and is still active!

    How do you do this nowadays? I'm an owner of a server and the transfer ownership button doesn't show up. How do I transfer it now?

    @GRIMM____  It still works exactly as described on post above, at least on the PC.

    I'm also having trouble figuring out how this works in the new layout. It no longer appears after mousing over the member, and it doesn't appear after right clicking. Was the feature entirely removed, or did it simply get moved elsewhere?

    @ian I just did it, in the Members section when you click the three dots on the right hand side across from the person's name, it's part of the options that appear there. I had to make a new discord on behalf of our community leader since he was at work and was able to transfer ownership straight to him once I had everything set up. Thanks for putting this feature in, Discord team! <3
