I’m excited to share with you how to get Clyde on Discord! If you’re not familiar, Clyde is the friendly bot mascot that represents Discord. Adding Clyde to your server can add a touch of personality and fun to your Discord experience. In this article, I’ll guide you through the steps on how to get Clyde on your server, so let’s get started!
Step 1: Creating a Discord Server
The first step is to create a Discord server if you haven’t already. Open the Discord app or visit the Discord website and sign in with your existing account or create a new one. Once you’re logged in, click on the “+” button on the left side of the screen and select “Create a Server”. Give your server a name and customize it to your liking. Congratulations, you now have your own Discord server!
Step 2: Adding a Bot to Your Server
To add Clyde to your server, you need to use a Discord bot invitation link. Head over to the official Discord Developers website (https://discord.com/developers/applications) and sign in with your Discord account. Click on “New Application” and give your application a name. Then, click on the “Bot” tab on the left side and click on “Add Bot”.
After adding the bot, you’ll see a section called “Token”. Click on “Copy” to copy the token to your clipboard. Remember, this token is private, so make sure not to share it with anyone else.
Step 3: Inviting Clyde to Your Server
Now that you have the bot token, you can invite Clyde to your server. Open a new tab in your web browser and paste the following URL, replacing “BOT_TOKEN” with the token you copied earlier:
After opening the URL, you’ll be prompted to select the server you want to add Clyde to. Choose your server from the dropdown list and click on “Authorize”. Voila! You’ve successfully invited Clyde to your server.
Step 4: Customizing Clyde’s Permissions
By default, Clyde will have the basic permissions to read and send messages in the server. However, depending on your server’s needs, you may want to customize Clyde’s permissions. To do this, go back to the Discord Developers website, select your application, and click on the “Bot” tab. Under the “Privileged Gateway Intents” section, you can enable or disable specific permissions for Clyde.
Take some time to review and tweak the permissions according to your preferences. It’s important to strike a balance between granting necessary permissions and maintaining the security of your server.
Adding Clyde to your Discord server can bring a fun and unique element to your community. By following the steps outlined in this article, you should now have Clyde happily residing in your server. Remember to use Clyde responsibly and within the guidelines set by Discord. Enjoy your enhanced Discord experience with Clyde!
