Cards and Decks
What are Cards?
Cards are the items being posted in the channel. These could be questions, facts, trivia, quotes, or whatever you’d like.
Cards can be created in 2 different ways:
- Creating cards with the
/card addcommand will directly add new cards to a deck.
- Suggesting cards with the
/suggest newcommand will add the card to the channel’s suggestions. These will need to be approved by staff before they are added to a deck.
What are Decks?
Decks are a group of cards, and all cards must be part of a deck. They help to organize cards into different categories, or with different settings, within the same channel.
For example, you might have separate decks for
Would You Rather,
Video Game Questions, and
Member Suggestions all under the same
You can create new decks with the
/deck new command.
Decks can also be prioritized to determine which cards are posted first. For example, you might want to post any cards in the
Member Suggestions deck before posting
Would You Rather cards, so you can give
Member Suggestions a higher priority of
Would You Rather a lower priority of
2. Decks with the same priority will be treated as if they were combined.

The ideal bot when looking for an active server is QOTD. Sadly, it could be challenging to use the server for the first time. Using the QOTD bot on Discord is simple once you are familiar with the commands. When your server has three channels, the bot is utilized. Create three channels: questions, answers, and hall of fame after you've added it to your server and set up the fundamental settings.
