Why Midjourney Not Working?

If Midjourney is not working then chances that there is some bug in Midjourney. In this scenario, you can’t do anything just wait till issue is resolved by Midjourney team.

Alternatively, You are not using correct command to use Midjourney discord server.

Also, If you are on the official Midjourney Discord server and don’t see them yet, try restarting your Discord app.

Below are some basic commands to use in Midjourney Bot channels:

/imagine creates an image based on the prompt text you provided. It produces a grid of 4 images, taking around 50 seconds with default settings.

/help displays universally helpful information and tips about the Midjourney bot.

/info shows information about your profile, plan, usage, and currently running jobs.

/subscribe creates a unique link to the subscription page of your current Discord account, without needing to sign in on the website.

/fast and /relax toggles between “fast” and “relax” mode. In fast mode, if you are out of jobs, your jobs will be incrementally billed.

In relax mode, your jobs do not cost, but take longer to generate. Only active Standard and Corporate plans have access to relax mode.

/show <jobid> after recovering the ID of a job in your gallery, you can summon that job again in the chat, producing the resulting image and upscale+variation buttons.

This allows you to essentially revive any job you generated yourself, bringing it into any bot channel to generate upscales and variations there, even if you have lost access to the original message.

/private and /public toggle between “private” and “public” mode. In private mode, your jobs are only visible to you. 

In public mode, your jobs are visible to everyone in the gallery, even if you are creating them in a thread or a DM.
