New Voting Changes - Free Hoodies!

Today we are rolling out the biggest update on voting yet. After great feedback and implementation by bots such as Pokecord, Pbot, and others, we have decided to roll the monthly voting system out across the entire site.

This means that under every tag, your bot now has the chance to compete for the top spot. This is important, because when you google "Discord {tag} bot", we are #1 for pretty much every tag, so by getting to #1 for your top tags would mean your bot gets the most joins for that search term on Google. From our initial calculations, we've seen increases of 200-500 joins per day for top bots.

This sums up why we started discordbots - to give every bot developer a shot at competing for the top. Now, you and your community can show what you're made of and claim the top spots for the tags that your bot is great at.

Aside from tens of thousands of server joins - for the winners of the overall most voted bot and "Music" category bot, we are going to send out the following hoodie every month. It will be completely free of charge. They are only available by winning this competition and will come with a handwritten note from me.

So, to sum it up:

Every tag now sorts their bot list based on monthly upvotes, no longer overall upvotes

The home page shows the top 6 bots by monthly upvotes, the top 4 new bots (minimum 20 upvotes), and a daily selected list of 6 Certified bots that have passed through our Certification program.

The site now has millions of users, and if you haven't implemented voting yet to compete for these top spots, you are most definitely missing out on thousands of joins per month, so make sure you implement voting here. It's as simple as receiving a webhook on your bot server when every vote is complete. : https://discordbots.org/api/docs#webhooks

Also, make sure that you comply with our rules around voting. Discord is an awesome place for everyone and we'd like to keep it that way.
