It is currently customary in discord culture to utilize at least one bot. Discord users may employ bots to improve their server experience and to monitor their channels. If you want to build a huge discord server, you should consider adding at least a handful of bots. They bring incredible functionality and provide an additional layer of automatic moderation that a dedicated mod team may be unable to deliver.
You’re undoubtedly asking now how to install a bot to your website in the first place. Adding a bot to a server is really fairly straightforward. The primary challenge arises when attempting to locate credible sources and kahoot bots that perform well. In this situation, I’d direct you to my previous post, which has a list of the greatest bot websites I could discover. Additionally, there are a few chosen bots that I will propose for certain tasks. It’s difficult to discover a well-running bot, since there are several bots out there that were written and uploaded without any debugging. Even the most widely used bots are sometimes buggy.
We’ll examine my top suggested bots in this post based on what I’ve observed work. Additionally, we’ll discuss how to configure a bot after it’s installed on your server. Hopefully, this serves as a useful follow-up to my prior essay, which discussed this subject briefly.
MEE6 Recommended Bots
MEE6 is an excellent general-purpose bot to have. You can virtually operate entirely on the free version without ever touching the commercial version (however the paid version does add a lot of amazing features). With the free edition, you may greet new members, listen to music in voice chat, and participate in response roles. MEE6 is an excellent starting bot to add to your server if you’ve never used a kahoot answer bot before.
This bot’s dashboard is really simple to navigate and customize. Additionally, the various command elements are exceedingly easy to use and enable for easy command editing. Additionally, this will be the bot we use to demonstrate how to set up a bot on your server. Most bigger servers have at least this bot to help moderate to some extent. The following are for additional moderation that I’d suggest implementing to your own server in addition to MEE6.
Dyno is a bot that is extremely similar to MEE6. However, Dyno offers many more customization possibilities and is less intuitive to use. I’d suggest this bot to those who are more experienced with Discord bots. Dyno is far more complicated and has a plethora of capabilities that MEE6 does not. Personally, I still favor MEE6 as a moderator bot due of its simplicity. Utilizing both of these bots would significantly increase the performance of your server.
Captcha Bot for Server
This bot is an excellent approach to create a protective barrier. You may use this bot to prevent users from accessing the rest of the service by forcing them to authenticate their identity. This bot will send a direct message to new members who enter the appropriate conversation with the command!verify. They will be required to complete a Captcha before gaining access to the rest of the service. This bot does nothing more than check users, however it helps prevent your server from being attacked by a bot.
- Configuring The Bot
- Integrating The Bot
To begin, you’ll need to browse to the bot. Once on the bot’s website, look for a link that says something like “invite bot” or “add bot to server.” You’ll just have to click it.
After clicking the button to add the bot, you’ll be prompted to grant access to specific rights. Authorize the bot, and it should be added to your server.
Configuring The Bot
Now, on the far right, where the server’s members are listed, the new bot should show. I’ll be using MEE6 in this example.
Other bots may need you to transmit orders to them through Direct Messages, or their dashboard may have a completely different structure. However, the fundamentals will remain same throughout. What we’ll want to do first is create a chat channel for any bot-related commands and restrict bot communication to this channel.
To adjust the bots’ permissions, I’d suggest creating a bot role and then right-clicking the bot chat and selecting the modify chat option. You should be able to find the Permissions tab here. You’ll want to add the role of the bot, or the individual bot whose rights you wish to update, to the permissions list. Here, you may modify the bot’s permissions for this channel. I’d also consider eliminating rights for this bot to transmit and receive messages in all other conversations, since you don’t want other conversations to get clogged with bot instructions.
When you reach the permissions page, double-check that the bot’s role is chosen. You’ll want to look for the permission labeled “Send Messages” here. This should be checked for the particular bot conversation. Select the red X to prevent bots from sending messages in all other conversations. I’d propose changing permissions by category to avoid having to go through each individual conversation and modify each individual permission.
You’ll see how I modified the BOTS permissions to prevent bots from sending messages in conversations belonging to this particular category.
Dashboard for Bots
Now we can go to the MEE6 dashboard and begin customizing certain settings. With MEE6, I’d suggest beginning by adding a welcome message to a welcome conversation. To begin, go to your MEE6 dashboard and choose the Welcome option.
When this option is selected, the following screen appears. You’ll want to specify the channel to which these welcome messages should be sent. To begin, you’ll want to activate the welcome message option.
After you’ve completed these steps, each new member should be welcomed with a welcome card and a message welcoming them to the server. The free version of MEE6 does not enable you to customize the welcome card; however, if you upgrade to Premium, you may customize the welcome card.
There are several more possibilities available on the MEE6 dashboard, but for now, we’ll stay with the welcome message. I’d encourage trying things out for yourself and experimenting with the many parameters available on the dashboard, as well as experimenting with the other bots I mentioned previously in this post.
Bots and modifying server permissions might be a pain to learn, but if you get the hang of it, they can be a lot of fun. Additionally, they bring a new dimension to your server and provide an additional means of involvement for your server members. There are several bots available that I strongly advise you to investigate. The bots I mentioned before are probably some of the simplest you can utilize. There are, however, quite a number more available, and I’d suggest utilizing the information in this post to begin trying out bots.
There are an infinite number of possible uses for Discord servers. They’re a lot of fun to handle and play with. Bots provide an additional layer of fun to administering discord servers and also make it simpler to regulate what happens on your server. I hope this tutorial assisted you in getting started with discord bots!
