Midjourney AI is an art generator that was created by a research lab called Midjourney. It creates art from text-to-image prompts using a dataset of text-image pairs. Anyone with a Discord account can use Midjourney for free.
All you need is a Discord account and a list of text-to-image prompts. Instead of preparing the text prompts one by one, you can use free Midjourney prompt generators.
Before using the Midjourney AI, you must know the code of conduct. Otherwise, your access to the Midjourney AI will be revoked.
In this article, you will learn about the rules and list of banned words in Midjourney AI and a few tips to escape from the Midjourney filters.
Unlike the competitors Dall.E and Craiyon, Midjourney strives to make its content to be PG-13. The statement of #rules channel is as follows,
Do not create images or use text prompts that are inherently disrespectful, aggressive, or otherwise abusive. Violence or harassment of any kind will not be tolerated.
No adult content or gore. Please avoid making visually shocking or disturbing content. We will block some text inputs automatically.
To prevent non-PG-13 images, Midjourney has implemented a filter that automatically filters and bans exact words or similar words listed in this article.
Remember to go through the #rules channel once you have joined Midjourney Discord Server.

Tips to Escape from the Midjourney Filter

If the word that you want is not allowed, try to replace it with other words.
- vaccine -> vaccination
- Succubus -> Succubi
- Veiny -> Veins
Since Midjourny is an open Discord community, it is essential to obey the code of conduct. Even, if you are using the service in ‘/private’ mode, you need to follow the code of conduct.
The code of conduct is not only being in the realm of PG-13 content but also being kind and respecting each other and staff.
