    Check off the bot check mark in the list

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [​IMG]

    Scroll down and check "Administrator" (This will not do anything to effect your server, this is purely so BIGbot can create ranks so those donors can link their accounts and change their discord color, aswell as remove messages)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [​IMG]

    Copy the link that OAuth2 page gives you under the Administrator check, open it in a new tab

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [​IMG]

    Select your server

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [​IMG]

    Confirm that your bot is not being added by a bot

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    [​IMG]

    You got yourself a bot on your server now!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You'll notice that the bot is offline. This is because your server needs to have the token of your bot and the case sensitive name of your server, once these are put into your BIGbot config files, your server will start and your bot will awaken!
