How to Create an Active Discord Server: The Ultimate Guide

Want a More Active Discord Server?

Wish your Discord server was more active? In this guide, we're going to take a look at a variety of ways you can boost your server's activity once more, and provide your server's members with a great community to take part in!

Having an active Discord server is essential to its success; people could start leaving your server if they find that the server isn't as active as they'd like it to be.

That's why you should aim to make your server as active as possible, but don't worry, in this guide we're going to take a look at some great ways to do so!

We'll also look at some of the best techniques to spark great discussions and bring more activity, so let's get started!


1. Get Engaged With Your Server's Members

To cultivate a great atmosphere, you'll need to keep your members engaged by sparking new conversations, joining in on discussions and overall, facilitating a great community.

This can be done by asking questions, reacting to messages and overall, making members feel welcome to participate in discussions.

To do so, you should encourage members to take part and remind everyone that they're encouraged to partake in discussions. You'll be surprised at how effective this strategy is!


2. Ask A Question of the Day/Week

You could ask a "Question of the Day" (or week, if your server is already pretty active) where you ask your members a question related to the domain your server is in. For example, if you have a dedicated gaming server, a question of the day could be, "What are your thoughts on [insert game here]?". Or you could ask them about gaming-related news that's been dominating the headlines lately and what their thoughts are on that.

There are also poll bots that allow you to ask a question, and the bot will allow members to react to a question, with each reaction representing an answer. This might not spark as many conversations, but it could definitely help get everything started!

This is another great technique to boost discussions in your server, and spark some interesting conversations between members! Who knows what great conversations will arise after trying this out?

3. Host Events

You could also host weekly (or daily, if you like!) events in your server's voice channels, where members can gather and discuss news together.

You could also have a music bot, where users can request music to play in the voice channel. By hosting events, your server will naturally gain more members since they might want to invite their friends to join in and so forth.

Hosting events will also cultivate a greater community spirit between the server's members, and will help them get to know each other better.

Some types of events you could host on your Discord server are shown here.


4. Make Use Of Bots

Bots are also great to help get everything started! There are a whole variety of entertainment bots that allow you to watch YouTube videos, request music, create polls, and so much more.

There are bots to help you create memes, react with GIFs and much more. To find these bots, you can try looking at the various bot directories available, including Disforge.

Overall, bots can help automate a lot of the tedious activities associated with running a server or reacting to messages. For example, when you want to react with a GIF, instead of searching for it on GIPHY or Tenor, you can make use of a Discord bot that automatically searches GIPHY for the right GIF when provided a certain keyword.

Adding a bot to your server is relatively easy, you simply need to find a bot you'd like to add (see the link to the bot and server directory above) and then click the invite link. You then need to confirm which server you'd like to add your bot to, and you're done!
