Red Discord Bot Account Creation

Discord bot accounts are not the same as normal Discord user accounts; they are marked with a "BOT" label. Bot accounts are 'owned' by applications, which are in turn 'owned' by users. They are authenticated to the Discord server via a token, instead of usernames and passwords. A user cannot log in to a bot account; bot accounts cannot be added to a friends list or accept invites. Bot accounts can join more than one voice channel at a time, and they have a per-server message limit rather than a global limit (the way that normal users are limited).

Create a new bot account

  1. Follow this link to the Discord applications page.
  2. Click "new application" and enter a name, picture, and description for your new bot account.
  3. Click "Create Bot User", then click "Yes, Do It!".
  4. Copy the login token.

When you start up your Red bot on your VPS, it will prompt you to "Insert your bot's token:" - you'll simply need to paste in your token there and hit enter.

Finally, you'll need to add the bot account to the Discord server of your choice. When you start your bot, copy the link it provides you in the console and open it in your browser with your main Discord user account. Select the server you wish to add the bot to from the drop-down menu. Finally, click "Authorize".
