Hey, top.gg community — we’re excited to launch one of our biggest updates to date.

Reviews:

To enhance your browsing experience, we’ve added reviews to servers and bots. Please read the guidelines when using this feature. As the owner, you are able to respond directly to reviews as well. We are hoping that this creates a healthy dialogue between users and creators and eventually create better content for the community. We recommend leaving reviews to support your favourite creators and communities.

Vote revenue-sharing

We’ve made a significant change to the voting experience. Up until now, top.gg took 100% of the revenue it generates from ads on the voting pages. In addition to that, the experience was spammy with multiple ads on the page. We’ve changed up the process and aligned the incentives. One skippable video ad (like YouTube) per vote. At the end of every month, you will receive $1 in credit for Auctions for every 1000 votes. Since we are splitting the CPM, we are requiring users to disable their adblockers. We still have to calculate exactly how much revenue we generate with the new ads — therefore we might revise this amount later down the road (eg to $1.25 or $0.75 based on how effective it is), but for now, it is $15 for your first 100 votes and $1 for every 1000 votes thereafter. The credits will have to be used within 30 days, to avoid a situation where large, credit-driven bids overtake the auctions system.

Over the next few weeks, we will also roll out an ad-free subscription model.

New ways to list your server:

One problem a lot of people came to us with was how annoying it was to set up your server on top.gg, and we’re glad to announce that you can now add servers to top.gg in a single click! Once you log in, all the servers that you currently manage appear on your profile. The only thing we need you to do is to click the “Add to Top.gg” button, and you’re ready to grow your community with thousands of others!
