How to Install Counting Bot on Discord Server?
Here are the few steps to install counting bot on your Discord server.
Step 1. Open your Discord in browser
Since you will need to invite the bot in your Discord server, you have to use a web browser in doing so.
Step 2. Visit Counting Bot Top.gg website
Counting bot is listed on Top.gg. You can also Google "Counting Bot" and the first one on the list is the official one.
Top.gg is a search-and-discovery website, where anyone can list their Discord bots, servers, or DAOs.

After visiting the official website. You will see the counting bot and its commands. Click on "Invite".
Step 4. Select your Server
After inviting the bot, you will be then redirected to this page asking you to add the bot on the server of your choice. In this instance, I will be adding the counting bot on my Discord server, Chronos Guild.
After selecting the server of your choice, click "Continue".
Step 5. Authorize the Bot
After adding the bot to the server, you will be asked to authorize the bot with the permissions listed. Don't worry, you can change these permissions later. Click on "Authorize".
Step 6. Complete the Captcha Challenge
After authorizing the bot, you now need to complete a captcha challenge to prove that you're not a bot. Put a check on the box and you're good to go. You will be prompted that you can close or refresh the tab now.
Step 7. Go back to your Server
Go back to your Discord server and look for a channel that you want to start the count on. As for this example, I created a new channel called counting. This will be the channel where I would put the counting bot and start counting.
Step 8. Inviting the Bot on the Channel
You have to use the command
c!channel so that the bot would know where to go and where will it look for the count. I will be using the counting channel that I have created. Send this command
Step 9. Updated the Counting Channel
After sending the command, you will be prompted that the counting channel has been updated to that specific channel.
Step 10. Start counting
You can now start counting, starting from 1.
Note: You cannot count countinuously two numbers in a row. You need someone else to count the next number. After successfully counting, the bot will send a reaction on your count.
- One person can't count two numbers in a row. (A friend/partner is required)
- No botting.
- If you break count, a "save" will be docked from your save count if you have any. Otherwise, the count will reset.
