Bans, Mutes & Kicks

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!

Kicking Users

The simplest way of letting a user know their behaviour isn’t acceptable, is to just kick them from the group.

Admin Kicks

To kick a user, issue the below command:

/kick <@username or UserID>

You may also kick a user by simply replying to their message and issuing the kick command without any arguments, as shown below:

/kick

User Kicks

A user may also kick themselves from the group chat by issuing the below command:

/kickme

Muting Users

Rose also gives you the option of muting users in your group chats. When muted, a user is still part of the chat, and can see all messages and content, but they are not able to send any messages to the chat. This can be useful when a user is causing problems, but you’d still like to allow them to view messages in the group.

Permanent Mutes

To mute a user, issue the following command:

/mute <@username or UserID>

Like kicking users, you may also mute a user by simply replying to their message and issuing the mute command without any arguments:

/mute

Temporary Mutes

You can also mute a user temporarily for a period of time. To do this, you would issue the below command:

/tmute <@username or ID> <time>

Because it is a temporary mute, you will need to specify how long the mute will be for with one of the following arguments:

Option Description
Xm Mutes the user for X minutes
Xh Mutes the user for X hours
Xd Mutes the user for X days
Xw Mutes the user for X weeks
Example Scenario 1

If you wanted to mute a user for 30 minutes, you would issue the below command:

/tmute @username 30m

Example Scenario 2

If you were replying the user’s message to perform the mute, you’d issue the below command:

/tmute 30m

Unmuting Users

To manually unmute a user, simply issue the following command:

/unmute <@username or ID>

Alternatively, you can also reply to one of their messages with the below command:

/unmute

Banning Users

Rose can also ban users as well! A banned user is removed from your group chat, and they are not able to rejoin. You can think of it like a permanent kick. Once you ban a user, you won’t need to worry about them any longer.

Permanent Bans

To ban a user, issue the following command:

/ban <@username or ID>

Or you can simply reply to their message with the following:

/ban

Temporary Bans

You can also ban a user temporarily for a period of time. To do this, you would issue the below command:

/tban <@username or ID> <time>

Because it is a temporary ban, you will need to specify how long the ban will be for with one of the following arguments:

Option Description
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
Example Scenario 1

If you wanted to ban a user for three days, you would issue the below command:

/tban @username 3d

Example Scenario 2

If you were replying the user’s message to perform the ban, you would issue the below command:

/tban 3d

Unbanning Users

Like with mutes, you can manually unban a user by issuing the following command:

/unban <@username or ID>

Alternatively, you can also reply to one of their messages with the below command:

/unban
