You can ask MEE6 to send a message when new users join your server.

This is useful if you want to give send new users a list of rules, info about how to use the server, tips, or even simply just a warm welcome.

You can either send the welcome message in a Discord channel, or directly to the user through a direct message.

To set up join messages head on over to your server Dashboard > Plugins Tab > Welcome

Send welcome messages to a Discord channel

To send a join message to a specific channel in your server, enable and configure the option "Send a message when a user joins the server", and select a channel for the message to be sent to.

After configuring the join message, the next time a user joins your server, MEE6 will give them a warm welcome in the channel you selected.

Make sure MEE6 has permissions to read messages and send messages in the channel settings for the welcome channel.

Send welcome messages directly to the user

To send a private join message to new users, enable and configure the option "Send a private message to new users".

After configuring the private join message, the next time a user joins your server they will be sent a message welcoming them to your server.

For users to successfully receive the PM they will need to allow private messages for servers they join. They can enable this in User Settings > Privacy & Safety > "Allow direct messages from server members"

Send a fancy embed instead of a raw text

You can enable the "embed" option for both welcome messages. This will allow you to send a nice-looking message with titles, images and fields instead of your usual text. See the example below (left is on Discord, right is on your server dashboard):

Advanced tip: Whether you're sending the welcome message in a channel or through DM, you can use variables to make your join messages nicer. Make sure to check out the list of variables.
