Discord setup for admins

Jan 18, 2024 7:15 PM



To set up Discord for admins, invite the bot Rick to your server and activate it with a specific role color. Rick requires certain permissions to function properly, such as viewing and sending messages, managing messages, and using external emojis. You can add a BurpBoard feed to your server, but caution and independent research are advised when using the leaderboard feature.

Invite Rick

For Rick to work, his highest-ranking role needs the custom color below for aesthetics.

The best practice for this, is to change his default “Rick Sanchez” role color to the required color or create a new role with the required color, and assign it to Rick.


Required permissions

Rick needs the following permissions for the channels where you want him to be, to work properly.

  • NEW: Create Public Threads & Send Messages in Threads
  • View Channel
  • Send Messages
  • Read Message History
  • Manage Messages (to clean up commands and rate-limit notices)
  • Embed Links
  • Add reactions
  • Use External Emojis
  • Member roles you want to give access to /commands need “Use Application Commands”
  • Never give third-party bots Administrator rights, including Rick!
  • To disable Rick in a channel, remove read/send permissions from the desired channel. Note: this will also stop tracking tokens that your members check.

Add BurpBoard feed

  • The leaderboard is automated and unvetted, in your channel description you should add a DYOR warning.
