What Can You Include in Discord’s “About Me” Section?

Discord’s “About Me” section supports markdown and links, which means you can format your text using various ways and even add links to other sites. For example, if you want to add “Mahesh” in bold letters, you’d type:

**Mahesh**

Similarly, if you want to italicize your text, use the following format:

*This text will be italicized*

You can also drop website links in this section. To do so, simply paste your URLs in the box, like so:

There’s also an option to include emojis in the section so you can better express your feelings. You can view the full list of emojis by clicking the emojis icon next to the “About Me” section.

With these formatting options, you can make your Discord profile a bit more attractive by stylizing it and including links to your website or social media profiles.
