When you bump, the following happens:

  • The bot ensures the bump cooldown is over
  • A loading message is sent in the channel where you are bumping
  • Open Bump starts posting your bump to servers with a feed (bump channel)
  • Open Bump informs other bump bots on your server about the ongoing bumping process using SBLP.
  • Once bump posting of Open Bump has been finished, a success message is being displayed. It contains other bots’ statuses.
  • After one minute, all outstanding SBLP bumps are marked as timed out.


Every server has a cooldown which has to finish before the server can be bumped again. This cooldown is per-guild and not per-user. However, users can reduce their cooldown on a per-user basis by voting for the bot.
