Automated Systems

These are the parts of Auttaja that help to automate commonly done actions on servers.

Appeals

Users can appeal punishments via our automated punishment appeal system. This can be useful if a user does not agree with a moderator decision. To configure it open up -setup and click the Appeal reaction. From here, you'll get a screen that looks like this:

appeal_settings

These options do the following things:

  • Toggle - Toggles the appeal system on or off.
  • Channel - Sets the channel where the user appeals go.
  • Back - Goes back to the main menu.

Users can then appeal punishments via -appeal [punishment id]. They can get the punishment ID via -search.

Nickname Requests

Users can request to your moderators to change their nickname in your server via this function. This prevents them having nicknames that could be considered offensive. To configure it open up -setup and click the Nick Requests function. From here, you'll get a screen that looks like this:

nick_request_settings

These options allow you to do the following things:

  • Toggle - This will allow you to toggle nickname requests.
  • Channel - This will allow you to set the channel nickname requests go into.
  • Back - Goes back to the main menu.

Users can then make a nickname request (to a maximum of 32 characters) with -nick [nickname]. This requests look like this:

nickname_request

Users that are helper or above can then accept or deny these nickname requests.

Gatekeeper

Gatekeeper is the name for our new user verification system in Auttaja. To configure it open up -setup and click the Gatekeeper reaction. From here, you'll get a screen that looks like this:

gatekeeper_settings

This looks like a large screen but don't panic, it isn't as hard as it looks. Here is a explanation of all of the functions:

  • Toggle - Toggles the gatekeeper functions on or off.
  • Auto Role - This is the role Gatekeeper gives new users when they join. It is important that you set the permissions so that new users cannot speak until they are verified if you want the verification system to work properly.
  • Mode - This allows you to set the verification mode for Auttaja. When you click this option, you will get something that looks like this: gatekeeper_mode_screen

    There are the following verification modes:

    • Agree - This means users have to type -agree. This is useful if you just want basic verification that involves agreeing to some rules before joining.
    • Verification - This takes users to a external page where they have to tick a reCAPTCHA. This also allows us to run a anti-VPN check seamlessly in the background. Therefore, this helps prevent alts by making it easy on new users while probably triggering the additional check on people who are making alt accounts and also prevents VPN's.
    • Approval - This means users have to be manually approved by staff using -approve [user].
    • Password - This means that users have to DM the bot a password you specify within 2 minutes or will need to be manually approved. This is useful for high security servers.

    Simply send the digit that repersents the mode you want and then that is the mode now set.

  • Password - If you are using the password mode, this allows you to set the password.

  • Toggle Welcome - Auttaja can send welcome messages to users, this allows you to toggle them on and off.
  • Welcome Mode - If you have welcome messages on, there are 2 ways Auttaja can greet people. Firstly, it can greet them with a image (I made the background black to demonstrate the Discord client, it would normally be transparent):

    img_greeing

    If you would rather it displayed text, you could change it to the text mode and use Welcome Message to change the message (using Auttaja Support as a example):

    text_greeting

    Simply click the digit that repersents the method of greeting you want.

  • Welcome Channel - Sets the channel Auttaja should send welcome messages.

  • Toggle Leave - Toggles if Auttaja should send leaving messages.
  • Leave Message - Sets the leave message if you have it switched on.
  • Leave Channel - Sets the channel for leave messages.
  • Back - Goes back to the main menu.

Automod

Auttaja has a lot of functions dedicated to automatic moderation of servers. To configure it open up -setup and click the Automod reaction. From here, you'll get a screen that looks like this:

automod_settings

This is what each of the options do:

  • Bypass role - Allows you to set a role that bypasses all of the auto-mod things. This means that any auto-mod features you have enabled will be ignored on that specific user.
  • Anti-advert - Anti-advert is a option built into Auttaja that will stop Discord server advertisments being pasted in your server.
  • Anti-spam - Anti-spam is a option built into Auttaja to prevent users spamming and deal with users that do spam by giving them a role that you'll of previously set up with no permissions to talk in your main channels. You will need to set the Spammer role option for this to work.
  • Anti-zalgo - Prevents users from posting zalgo text.
  • Anti-raid - For various reasons such as inadvertently aiding development of raiding utilities, we cannot discuss how this works but it stops user raiding.
  • Anti-nuke - For various reasons such as inadvertently aiding development of server nuking utilities, we cannot discuss how it works but it does the job of stoping disgruntled staff from performing actions either manually or automatically in batch that can damage a server.
  • Anti-shortener - Prevents shorteners being used since these might be used to hide a bad link.
  • Bad link protection - Checks links against spoopy.link and deletes bad links.
  • Mention spam prevention - This prevents users from spam mentioning a bunch of different roles at the same time. The following settings apply to this:
    • Mention spam action - What to do with users that mention spam.
    • Mention spam threshold - Changes the threshold of role mentions before Auttaja takes action.
  • Back - Goes back to the main menu.
