Basic Configuration Category

basic.aliases

Can be used to redirect commands, such as making !listgroup call the !listgroups command. Useful for making shortcuts. Example: !setconfig basic.aliases kawaii pick cute sets an alias mapping !kawaii arg1... to !pick cute arg1..., preserving all arguments that are passed to the alias.

basic.botchannel

This allows you to designate a particular channel to point users if they are trying to run too many commands at once. Usually this channel will also be included in basic.freechannels

basic.commandprefix

Determines the SINGLE ASCII CHARACTER prefix used to denote bot commands. You can't set it to an emoji or any weird foreign character. The default is !. If this is set to an invalid value, it defaults to !.

basic.freechannels

This is a list of all channels that are exempt from bot command rate limiting. Usually set to the dedicated #botabuse channel in a server. Does not affect anti-spam. To exclude anti-spam from a channel, use !setconfig modules.channels spam ! #yourchannel.

basic.ignoreinvalidcommands

If true, the bot won't display an error if a nonsensical command is used. This helps reduce confusion with other bots that also use the ! prefix.

basic.importable

If true, the collections on this server will be importable into another server.

basic.listentobots

If true, processes messages from other bots and allows them to run commands. Bots can never trigger anti-spam. Defaults to false.

basic.modchannel

This should point at the hidden moderator channel, or whatever channel moderates want to be notified on.

basic.modrole

This is intended to point at a moderator role shared by all admins and moderators of the server for notification purposes.

basic.silencerole

This should be a role with no permissions, so the bot can quarantine potential spammers without banning them.
