DiscordMember lacks of user properties when the cache is empty on Guild Member Removed event

See original GitHub issue


The DiscordMember entity doesn’t use the DiscordUser’s properties, instead it searches this in the user cache.


I found that the DiscordMember entity doesn’t have the username, discriminator, avatar, basically all the general fields from the DiscordUser entity when this is not in the cache. I was searching the cause of this and I found that DiscordMember searches the user in the user cache then it uses its properties. I found this problem in the Guild Member Removed event when I started my bot with the cache empty. I believe Discord sends the full data of the user that left the server.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Start the bot with the cache empty (i.e. have only the member intent enabled or not)
  2. Try to access member’s username in the guild member removed event
  3. You will get a KeyNotFoundException

I have only the member intent enabled. I found this in my bot dev and also in the logs of my public bot. I have the logs for it. I restarted my bot 2 days ago and this is one of the logs while trying to get the username of a member that left a guild and it wasn’t in the cache because the bot just started. The bot was supposed to send a leaving message. Maybe in your case the member was updated and added in the member cache, I don’t know.
