What requests will consume my usuage quota?

If you don't link your own Discord account, you will be capped at 100 or 600 generations per month, depending on your plan. Any Midjourney request that involves image generation, including imagine, upscaling, zoom, vary, pan, etc, will count towards your usage quota.

What if I change my Midjourney plan after I linked my own Discord account?

If you change your Midjourney plan after linking your own Discord account, you will need to re-enable your linked account in our System, so our system will check your Discord details again and update your subscription plan accordingly.

I've linked my own Discord account, and it says active, but I can't see the jobs I sent in the Discord server.

It's possible that your Discord account is not really linked. When our website says it's active, it means that I've used your Discord details to connect your account, the verification progress may takes a few minutes, and our system will also take time to updating caches and queues for you.

I sent the imagine request successfully, but I can't see the progress or the URL of the image in the message request.

There are a few reasons why you may not see the progress or the URL of the image in the message request:

  • The image is sent but queued up in your Discord, so it may take a few minutes for the image to be started generating.
  • There could be an intermittent network issue from our system, our proxy service, your Discord server, or Midjourney. Thus we lost tracking the progress of the task, but our system will try to re-fetch the details of the generation later, by using the message ID.
  • Our system queue is somehow stuck, you can try to reboot the queue by using the reboot endpoint.
  • Midjourney is actually processing the image, there's a chance Midjourney return Progress images have been disabled. Don't worry, the results will still be sent when it completes. other than the actual progress, so you may not see the progress in the response, or it stays at 0, and it completes after a while (depending on if it's in fast mode or relax mode) straight away.
  • You are using your system without linking your Discord account, our system is busy processing other users' requests, and you may not have seen the progress in the response yet. Please wait or you can try to upgrade your plan to the Pro plan and link your Discord account (opens in a new tab).

I see the request sent successfully, and I have the message ID returned, but I can't see the message ID in my Discord server.

The message ID we used in our endpoints is different with the message ID in your Discord server. The message ID only means your request hits our system successfully, it doesn't mean it has been sent to your Discord server.

I have got an error message and what should I do?

Please check the error message carefully and try to find the solution from the following error list, if you still can't find the solution, please contact us via Telegram group (opens in a new tab).
