Banning, Muting, or Kicking users
One of the biggest headaches of running a group chat is performing administrative actions on users. Having to go into the group's settings, finding the user, restricting their permissions or banning them. It can be a real chore. But with Rose, it's as simple as a few commands!
Bans, mutes, and kicks
Rose is able to ban, mute, or kick users with single, short commands - allowing you to react fast to any situation.
The supported commands are listed here:
|Action||Command||Timed Action||Delete + action||Silent action||Undo the action|
These include three categories of commands:
- bans: Bans remove a user, and stop them from rejoining the group. If using a timed ban, they'll be able to rejoin after the ban expires.
- mute: Mutes stop a user from sending any messages in the group, so they're only able to read messages. If using a timed mute, they'll be able to speak again after the mute expires.
- kick: Kicks just remove the user from the group - but they'll be able to rejoin whenever they want. These aren't very effective at fighting spam, but they can be useful as a non-serious warning.
Each command has the same usage structure - so for the purpose of avoiding repetition, we'll only go into detail for bans.
Permanently banning a user
To ban a user, use the following command:
/ban <id/username/reply> <reason>
To ban a user with id 1234, you would use:
If you wanted to specify a reason for the ban (which will be shown in your log channel), you would use:
/ban 1234 Some reason
If you were banning a user by reply, you can simply specify the reason straight away:
/ban Some reason
Temporarily banning a user
/tmute(No kick option)
The command to temporarily ban a user is very similar, but also includes the time to ban the user for.
/tban <id/username/reply> <time> <reason>
The time format is described as such:
|Xm||Bans the user for X minutes|
|Xh||Bans the user for X hours|
|Xd||Bans the user for X days|
|Xw||Bans the user for X weeks|
To ban a user with id 1234 for 3 days, and with reason "time to cool off", you would use:
/tban 1234 3d time to cool off
Deleting the message + Banning a User
Rose provides some handy shortcuts to delete a user's message + ban them. This is the
/dban command. It can only be
used as a reply; as otherwise, it wouldn't know which message to delete!
To delete a user's message + ban them, reply to their message with the following command:
/dban spamming the chat
Silently Banning a User
Rose also has the concept of silent bans; this will:
- Delete the replied message (if a reply)
- Ban the user
- Delete the command message
- Stop Rose from sending an "X was banned" message
Similarly to the other commands, it is used like so:
/sban <id/username/reply> <reason>
Unbanning or Unmuting a user
You can unban or unmute a user by using the following commands
/unban <id/username/reply> /unmute <id/username/reply>
