Advertise your Server on Open Advertisements

In this tutorial, we’ll take a look on how to advertise your server on the Discord Advertising server Open Advertisements. This tutorial requires you to be on Open Advertisements, so feel free to join it if you are not a member yet.

Find the right Channel

Before starting with actually advertising your server, you need to decide in which channels you want to advertise. Open Advertisements offers a bunch of channels focused on different topics.

You can find the advertising channels in the “Discord Advertisements” category.

You can advertise in up to 3 channels per hour. Therefore, we recommend you to advertise in 3 channels to use the full potential. It is very common that a server fits in multiple categories, A gaming server might also have a lot of memes, and even if it is only focused on gaming, it will still fit in misc-servers (miscellaneous).

Post your ad

You can now post your ad in the corresponding channels (up to 3). Posting your ad is as easy as sending a message. Make sure to include an invite to your server, as users won’t be able to join a server without an invite.

Wait for the cooldown and post again

Advertising is only effective when done properly and over time. To use the full potential of advertising, advertise as often as possible (pay attention to cooldowns). Quantity is a big factor in advertising, and therefore, we recommend you to use multiple advertising servers. You can find a list of advertising servers in our Link Archive.

Discord FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions

As I have seen a lot of questions about Discord in general, I decided to create this FAQ about Discord. I’ll update it when I got new questions. If you have any concerns, improvements or suggestions, please contact us.

DM Advertising is a violation against the Discord ToS. It is considered as unsolicited marketing messages and can lead to your account being banned on most servers or even completely deleted by Discord.

Disboard is a server explorer page that allows users to find new servers or add their own servers so other users can find them. Bumping a Discord server will place it on the top of Disboard’s home page.

Disboard is a place to find servers and add your server so other users can find and join it. If you need help adding your server to Disboard, check out this article.

Can you get banned from Discord?

There are 2 types of Discord bans, Server Bans and Platform Bans. Server Bans can be made by moderators of a Discord server and will ban you from their server. Platform Bans are made by the Discord Trust & Safety team and are platform-wide.

Can the owner of a Discord Server be kicked?

No, the owner of a Discord Server can not be kicked. Only users with the “Kick Members” (or “Ban Members”) can kick/ban members, and only members below their own highest role. The owner is the highest user in the server and can therefore not be kicked/banned by anyone.

Does Discord show who kicked?

Yes, you can see who kicked a user by using Audit Logs. This also works for other moderation actions.

How can I write colored text on Discord?

Code Blocks can contain colored text. Learn more about text effects here.

How do I create a server?

Always read the label:

Before you create a server you need to login or register an account with your email and password in the browser or a discord desktop application. Once doing so you can continue to step 1.

1. Click the “+” button on the left hand column

No matter if it’s the first, second, or third server you’ve made, this is the place you’ll need to go. Note that the “+” icon can be hidden if you have a lot of servers. Simply scroll down the server column to find where the “+” is hiding.

The next window that appears will give you two options: “Create” or “Join.” We’re going to choose “Create” so just pretend like “Join” doesn’t even exist (don’t worry if it gets jelly).

2. Server Info

After deciding between doors number one and two, you can enter in the server name, and change the server icon by locating it in your files.

The minimum size for icons is 128×128. If you’d like to select a specific area from a large image, crop it in multiples of 128 (128X2=256, 128X3=384, etc.).

Here, you’ll also be able to change the server region by…clicking “change.” We currently have ten different regions to choose from, and plan on adding more in the future.

After selecting the server region, click “create” and bada-bing-bada-boom you’ve created your first server! 

From here you can invite members, create and join servers. To figure out how to invite people and more about invites and inviting read my next post.

Discord Me – Add your Server

Discord Me is a Server List that helps you promote your server. Here on Discord One, we highly recommend it as one of the most effective server lists.

In this tutorial, we’ll cover on how to add your server.

Add your server

1. Open https://discord.me/ in your browser.

2. Click on “Login” on the top right side.

3. You are now redirected to a page of Discord. If required, log in to your account. Then, click on “Authorize”.

5. Now, click on “+ Add Server”.

6. You now get to this window.

7. Fill in the fields and click on “Next Step >” or “Continue”. Repeat that until you come to this page:

Click on “Add Bot”.

8. You are now being redirected to a Discord page. Click on “Select a server” and select the server you are currently adding. Then, click on “Authorize”.

9. Now, you may need to solve a reCaptcha. A reCaptcha helps preventing bots from doing automated actions. It is also known as the popular “I am not a robot” checkbox. Click on the checkbox and solve the excercise.

10. That’s it, you now added the Discord Me bot to your server. Go to the other tab again where you were filling in the fields for your server. Continue with it until you come to this window:

This page is an overview page where you can see the information you just entered. Check if everything is correct and click on “Confirm & Create”.

11. That’s it, you now got back to your dashboard and can see your server has been added.

Server Bumping

To make sure your server gets listed high on Discord Me, you need to bump as often as possible. Bumping means solving a small reCaptcha to increase your so-called bump points. Bump points help you being listed higher in search results and on the main page.

To bump your server, go to your dashboard. Then, select the server you want to bump and click “Bump Server”.

A window will pop up with a reCaptcha and a button. Solve the recaptcha by clicking on the checkbox and solving the excerciese.

That’s it, you have successfully bumped your server.

Discord.Me has bump windows in an interval of 6 hours. You can bump once per bump window. Bumping will give you 1 bump point, which you can increase up to 2 bump points by buying Premium.
