A sad robot wondering How to Fix  “This Interaction Failed” Error on Midjourney

Ever found yourself engrossed in the creative process of image generation on Midjourney, when suddenly, you’re hit with the dreaded “This interaction failed” error? Does it feel like your peace of mind just crumbled like a house of cards?

Don’t worry, we’ve got your back!

We’re here to help you navigate this challenging hurdle so you can get back to crafting your digital masterpieces.

What is the “This interaction failed” Error on Midjourney?

Midjourney is an AI-powered image generator running on Discord, a platform primarily used for chat and communication, not image generation!

So, at times, it might hiccup and display the “This interaction failed” error like below:

Error in Midjourney Discord showing "This interaction failed"

This error, akin to a sudden roadblock on a smooth highway, interrupts your image-crafting journey. It’s Midjourney’s only way of signaling that something has gone wrong. The error often emerges when the bot can’t process your command, probably due to an influx of simultaneous commands from multiple users or for one of the other reasons listed below.

Let’s run through the possible reasons and look at any fixes, if available.

Why Do I Keep Seeing the “This interaction failed” Error on Midjourney?

Imagine having a dinner party and more guests turn up than you anticipated. Your resources and space can be overwhelmed, and a similar thing can happen to the Midjourney bot.

When numerous commands are issued simultaneously, it may result in the persistent “This interaction failed” error. It’s also probably not a Midjourney problem, rather it’s more likely the cause of the error lies with Discord.

But fret not, as there are ways to troubleshoot and potentially solve this pesky problem.

How to Resolve the “This interaction failed” Error on Midjourney?

Here’s a quick run-through of seven different methods to fix this error in Midjourney.

Method 1: Check and Modify Your Discord Security Settings

Sometimes, the error could be due to Discord’s security settings preventing DMs (direct messages) from the Midjourney bot. Here’s how you can alter your settings:

  1. Launch Discord and click on the ‘User Settings’ (represented by a gear icon ⚙️).
  2. On the settings page, locate and click on ‘Privacy & Safety’.
  3. Find the ‘Allow direct messages from server members’ setting and ensure it’s enabled.

Method 2: Patience is Key, Try Again Later

It might simply be a case of the bot being overwhelmed with commands. If that’s the case, waiting for a few minutes before repeating your command is the only way to solve the issue.

Method 3: Reach Out to the Midjourney Support Team

If the error persists, you could consider reaching out to the official Midjourney Discord support team. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to the official Midjourney Discord server.
  2. Locate the dedicated support channels, typically titled ‘Support’ or ‘Help’.
  3. Explain your problem in detail and await a response from the support team, but this could obviously take a while.

Method 4: Reset Your Internet Connection

An unstable internet connection can cause numerous problems, including the “Interaction Failed” error.

  1. Try resetting your router or modem by unplugging it, waiting for a few seconds, and then plugging it back in.
  2. Alternatively, if you’re using Wi-Fi, consider switching to a wired connection or use your mobile data to see if it resolves the issue.

Method 5: Update Your Discord Client

An outdated Discord client might be the root cause of the problem.

  1. If you’re using Discord on a computer, navigate to ‘https://discord.com/download‘ and download the latest version.
  2. For mobile users, visit the App Store (for iOS users) or Google Play Store (for Android users), search for Discord, and click on ‘Update’ if available.

Method 6: Check the Status of Discord’s Servers

Discord server outages can lead to the error.

  1. Visit Discord Status to check the status of Discord’s servers.
  2. If you see any status other than ‘Operational’, wait until the server issues are resolved and try again.

Method 7: Clear Discord Cache

The accumulated cache can sometimes lead to unexpected errors.

  1. If you’re on a PC, exit Discord, navigate to Discord’s cache folder (~/Discord/Cache’ on Windows, ‘~/Library/Application Support/discord/Cache’ on MacOS), and delete all the files in it.
  2. If you’re on a mobile device, navigate to the application settings and clear cache from there.

By systematically following these steps, the “This interaction failed” error should be fixed. Hopefully one of these solutions resolved it for you!

Happy creating on Midjourney!
