Running or being part of a Discord server is quite an engaging and demanding task. Especially if you’re moderating a Discord server, time can fly like no other, and before you know it, you’ve got tons of tasks remaining, and you’ve only crossed one item off your list.

And on top of that, you need to keep fellow members engaged and interested as well. Here is where bots come to the rescue by allowing you to moderate your Discord server and add some fun at the same time.
