Unfurl > If you have any URLs of interest from Discord, you can potentially extract additional timestamp info. Each Discord ID (for user, channel, server, or file attachment) has an embedded timestamp that shows when that object was created.
Unfurl can parse it (example): https://dfir.blog/unfurl/?url=https://discordapp.com/channels/427876741990711298/537760691302563843/643183730227281931

Top.gg > Navigating to https://top.gg/user/ followed by a user's ID can show information about their profile, including bots and servers reviewed on Top.gg, their Discord username, and other information. This information is sometimes perserved after their account is deleted. They must have signed into Top.gg using Discord for this to work, but many Discord users have.
