Do you want to display the total members on your Discord server?
Finding the total number of members in a Discord server can be challenging because the members’ list only shows the number of people online.
Most of the time, Discord won’t even show the list of offline users.
When a server exceeds a certain number of members (e.g. 1,000), the “offline” tab will no longer be visible.
Due to this, you won’t be able to see the total number of offline users.
Hence, it’s hard to tell how many members the server has.
But what if there’s a bot that shows your server’s member count?
Meet ServerStats—a unique way to show off your member counters, server stats, goals, and welcome messages in your server that is fully customizable.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to invite and set up the ServerStats bot to your Discord server to display its member count.
How to Add Member Count on Discord
To add a member count to your Discord server, invite the ServerStats bot, set up the bot using the s/setup command, and create a goal channel.
The member count feature is not available in Discord itself, so you’ll have to invite the ServerStats bot to add it.
With ServerStats, you can display your server’s stats such as the total number of members and bots.
The stats will be displayed as different channels on your Discord server’s sidebar under “Server stats”.
You can also create a goal channel and set the goal for the number of members that you want to hit.
Creating a goal channel encourages members to invite their friends.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can add a member count to your Discord server using the ServerStats bot.
Step #1: Invite the ServerStats bot
Search for “ServerStats” on Google > click on the first link > invite the bot > continue > authorize > complete the CAPTCHA.
To set up the bot, you have to invite it to your server first via a third-party website.
Firstly, search for “ServerStats” on Google and click on the first link to the ServerStats website.
Then, select “Invite the bot” to invite the bot.
After you’ve selected “Invite the bot”, the Discord web page will open up requesting authorization.
Under “Add to Server”, select the server that you want to invite the bot to.
Then select “Continue”, followed by “Authorize”.
You might be also required to complete the CAPTCHA before you can invite the bot to your Server.
Alternatively, you can go to top.gg, search for the bot invite it from there.
However, in order for you to invite the bot, you need to have the “Manage Server” permission.
Otherwise, you won’t have permission to do so.
If you’re not the owner of the server, you need to ask the owner to set it up instead.
Congrats, you’ve successfully invited the bot to your Discord server.
The next step is to set up the bot and add the member count to display the total members in your server.
Step #2: Set up the bot and add the member count
Go back to your Discord server > type “s/setup” > type “voice”.
After you’ve invited the ServerStats bot to your website, you’ll receive this message along the lines of, “Welcome, ServerStats. We hope you brought pizza”.
To begin with, you can type “s/help” to get information about the ServerStats bot.
The “s/help” command line will open the list of commands that you can use.
There are three categories—normal, info, and admin.
The current prefix is “s/”, which means that you’ll have to start each command with it.
Anyway, let’s dive right into the set up process.
To set up the bot, type “s/setup” (without the quotation marks) and hit enter.
The bot will then ask you the type of channel that you want to use as a counter (voice or text) to display the member count.
Type “voice” (without the quotation marks) in the chat (because it looks more appealing).
After that, the member counts of your server will be displayed on the sidebar.
For a start, there’ll be three counters—All Members, Members, and Bots.
There are also other counters such as Roles, All Emojis, and Channels.
“All members” adds the total number of members and bots together.
“Members” is the number of members that your Discord server has, excluding bots.
“Bots” is the number of bots that your Discord server has, excluding members.
Roles, emojis, and channels are the total number of roles, emojis, and channels that your Discord server has respectively.
Congrats, you’ve successfully added the member count to your Discord server.
The last step (optional) is to create a goal channel.
Step #3: Create a goal channel
On your server’s sidebar and click on the “+” icon under a category > select “Voice Channel” > name the channel as your member goal count.
Now that you’ve added the member count to your server, you can create a goal channel.
To create a goal channel, navigate to your server’s sidebar and click on the “+” icon under a category.
Next, select “Voice Channel” instead of “Text Channel”.
Name your channel as the member goal that you want to hit, and select “Create Channel” to create the channel.
This is to encourage people to invite their friends which will increase the growth of your Discord server.
Lastly, you can delete the other channels that you don’t want to show such as the members and bots.
You can do so by right-clicking the “Bots” channel, and selecting “Delete Channel”.
Next, right-click the “Members” channel, and select “Delete Channel”.
By the end of it, you should only have two channels—All members, and the goal channel that you’ve just created.
Congrats, you’ve successfully created a goal channel for your Discord server, and organized the channels!
How do I add stats to my Discord server?
To add stats to your Discord server, you need to invite the ServerStats bot from the official website or from top.gg.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can do this:
- Search for “ServerStats” on Google and click on the first result.
- Click on “Invite the bot”.
- Select the server that you want to invite the bot to and follow the on-screen instructions.
- Go back to your Discord server and type “s/setup” to set up the bot.
- Type “voice” to set up the server stats as voice channels.
After that, your Discord server’s stats will be listed on the sidebar as channels.
There are multiple stats—All Members (total number of members), Members (total number of members excluding bots), and Bots (total number of bots excluding members).
There are also other stats such as Roles, All Emojis, and Channels.
You can delete all of the other stats except for “All members” if you just want to show the total number of members that your Discord server has.
Adding stats to your Discord server is important as it displays important information about your server such as the total number of members that it has.
Normally, if you were to look at the members of a Discord server, you’ll have to tap on the “members” icon, and it’ll show members that are currently online.
However, it does not show the total number of members that the Discord server has.
To make matters worse, if a Discord server is too big, the “offline” tab will be hidden from the “members” tab.
Hence, you won’t be able to see the members who are currently offline.
The ServerStats bot solves all of these problems as you can use a simple command to show the stats of your server as voice/text channels.
That way, people can simply to refer to it to tell the member count of your Discord server.
