Auto Moderation

This article will walk you through setting up, configuring, and using Bulbbot automod™️ in your server.

Auto Moderation Logging#


Automod has its own special log type which will log all censored messages in a channel you select. You can configure this channel using !configure

note

Automod will not log or cache messages until you enable it with !configure

Once enabled, AutoMod will delete, log and action on any messages violating our checks. These messages will log in your desired channel.

Auto Moderation Censoring#


Bulbbot AutoMod currently offers 7 censoring options messages, mentions, words, words_token, websites, avatars (more info here) and invites.

These censoring options are divided into two categories. messages and mentions can only use limits while websites, words and invites can only use blacklists and whitelists.

Limits#


note

Messages containing user mentions are cached in the Automod cache for 15 seconds while messages that do not contain mentions are only cached for 10 seconds.

Once you set up mention or message limits Bulbbot will cache all messages and messages containing mentions respectively. Once a user has violated these checks the configured action will trigger and Bulbbot will log the check violation in your automod channel.

Words/Words_token#


Bulbbot censoring allows you to set up two different checks for swear words words and words_token. words only checks for standalone words while words_token checks for the word token anywhere in the message.

note

Both words and words_token use the same configured punishment from words

Invites#


The invites check will check all messages for Discord invites and will action on and delete messages that contain any invites that are not whitelisted.

tip

We recommend using the full invite link (i.e https://discord.gg/invite/WgEtVqyNFZ) to make sure everything works correctly

Websites#


The website check will check all messages for any websites and will action on and delete messages that violate this check unless the message contains a whitelisted website.
