Discord servers are built to hold “Channels,” which is where the conversations happen. Channels are usually separated by topic to avoid clogging up the chatroom.
In these menus, toucan edit the channel's name, “topic,” permissions, and more. In the menu that opens, toucan change the category's name and edit its permissions, which is great if you have several channels that should be restricted.
If you're trying to manage a large server, then you should have a few people who can enforce the rules. This can be done through “Roles,” which can be given to users to decide what permissions and powers they have in the server.
