I’ve been testing Discord for a while now. They are flagging E-mail’s that do not have phones tied to them. You can create a discord account if you have an e-mail tied to a phone number. Ex: Gmail without a phone number no, gmail with a phone number yes. I think time with the e-mail may also factor in to it. I’m not 100%.
Discord’s Something’s Going On Here Message: How To Fix It
For us gamers, Discord has been an absolute godsend and filled a massive void that we really didn’t even realize was there. Sure, we could always manage to communicate with each other and chat, but Discord allows us to do so much more than that.
Now, we can join servers that are specifically designed for our interests, share music, memes, screenshots of the action in-game. For tactical gamers, it has revolutionised the way a lot of us play.
Overall, there are very few limits on its usage – considering that this all comes free of charge. You can even livestream and join up to as many as 100 unique servers.
So, not only do you get to chat with people you know, but it also gives you the opportunity to interact with like-minded people that share the same interests as you. Of course, this only applies when everything is working as it should…
The “Something’s Going On Here” Error. What Does It Mean?
One unfortunate thing about Discord is that it is well-known to encounter the occasional error here and there. It’s annoying, but again, it’s a free service and definitely the best of its kind out there at the moment. We will forgive them for that! However, as of late, more and more of you have been experiencing an issue that is a
little more catastrophic than your average glitch. Effectively, you’ve not been able to access you account. This is because, every time you try to get into it, you’re getting a window pop-up that says, “Something’s going on here”.
You may also have noticed that Discord is also asking for your phone number as a means of verifying your identity. This is fine for most, but not all of us are comfortable sharing our phone numbers with 3rd parties.
It’s a security thing. On top of that, there are also people out there who simply don’t have a phone number to hand over. So, what are you supposed to do then? We’re on your side here. It’s more than a little intrusive of them to all of a sudden demand a phone number from you.
Sure, they are doing so to make sure your account isn’t a bot account. But there are many other ways they could be doing this. Today, we are going to show you how to get around the issue and get back into your servers again. So, let’s get stuck right into it!
1. Try using a random phone number
The whole purpose of this Discord prompt for extra details is that they want to make sure you are human (you are, right?). At the moment they have a suspicion that you are a bot for whatever reason. But this does not mean that you have to put in your own personal phone number to get through the gates.
In an ideal world, they would accept email verification for this, but seeing as that isn’t the case, we’ll need to use another phone number. Basically, choose the number of a friend or family member.
Then, Discord will send a code to that number that you will need to input to get into your account. So, so long as that person is willing to send you on your code or is near you, you will be able to get into your account in minutes. For us, this is the easiest way of doing it. However, there are two more.
2. Use a new account and then try the old one again
This method has been reported to work for quite a few people out there. We’re not entirely sure why it does, but if it works, it works. Basically, all you need to do is set up a brand-new account and use that one for a while.
Once you have been doing this for a bit, try getting back into your old account again. In some cases, it will automatically start working again.
3. Get in touch with support
For our last fix, you will need to be a little but crafty. So, make sure to take a note of all of this before you get in touch with the Discord team. What we are going to do here is email support using the same email address that is attached to the account you can’t get into.
Then, while you are talking to them, try telling them that the phone verification method on your account just isn’t working. Elaborate that you have tried using the codes that they’ve sent out, but none of them work.
In addition to that, mention that there is no email verification option (hopefully, this will prompt them to add one in the future) and finally ask whether they could give you access back to your account.
A lot of your chances of success here is based on how well you deal with the support team. So, make sure to be cooperative, polite, and not too pushy. With a bit of luck, you should be back up and running again soon as a result.
