How to use the bot

Learn how to use the counters

Create/edit a counter

Counters are placed by writing them in a channel name or topic, if something is between two curly braces ({}), Member Counter will consider it a counter, and it will update it in the next 10 minutes

You can place counters in one of the following places:

  • In a voice channel name

  • In a category channel name

  • In a text channel topic

  • In a news channel topic

For this example we are gonna use {members}, which counts the total amount of members in your discord server, you will find out more counters below

Create a new channel, or/and edit it, and write {members} in the name or topic, and click 'save changes'

Then, wait up to 10 minutes, and Member Counter will update it:

You can also add multiple counters in one name/topic, and combine them with your own content, here is a example:

If you reach the character limit when you are editing a name/topic, please check mc!help editChannel

You can see the current counter configurations with mc!seeSettings, this is useful to add more counters without disabling the previous ones

Remove a counter

Edit the channel and write {disable} in the name/topic, Member Counter will replace it to a ✅, that means that you removed all the counters of that channel successfully

You can also delete the channel directly

List of counters

Those counters with a * are not available anymore due to discord restrictions, but you can use them if you self host the bot, you can learn how to do it here

You can setup the options here, or create it manually: options is a JSON object encoded in base64 (you can use {PREFIX}base64 command to archieve this), this object can have the following keys: url: A string; with the url of the resource, parseNumber: A boolean; if the result is a valid number, it will be parsed and customized according to your server's settings, dataPath: A string; if the response is a JSON object, you must specify the path to a key with a value that must be a string or number, the syntax of this path is similar to the syntax that JS uses to access properties and array items.
