Why Change Bot Prefixes on Discord?
Discord is a large community with many users, especially gamers. Discord offers various features, including creating servers to facilitate various activities, like creating voice channels. When you have a Discord server, connecting a bot to it saves time and helps automate various activities.
For instance, a bot like FredBoat comes in handy in playing music on Discord. A bot like MEE6 offers many features, including music and gaming controls. MEE6 is regarded as an all-in-one bot. When you have different bots, you may find they have the same prefix. In that case, you will get confused when invoking various commands.
A prefix is a symbol attached before the command.
Common prefixes include exclamation marks (!) and asterisks (*). When you have two bots using the same prefix, you must change the prefix of one bot. Doing so creates uniqueness in the commands.
For instance, if both bots use the exclamation prefix and have the same command name, how would you invoke a command from bot A?
Also, if you are uncomfortable with the current prefix of a given bot, you can decide to change the prefix to use the one you are best comfortable with. That way, you may invoke commands comfortably.
