Automatically moderate your servers text channels. Always wanted a bot to warn of deleted messages of rule breakers? Check out this page to find out what the BotGhost automod is capable of!
The 'Automod' is a module which will automatically moderate any text channel in your server. It allows you to customize a wide variation of different modules including a blacklist, mass caps, emoji, mention spam, and links/server invite detector.
The automod must be enabled in order to function. Click the Enable button at the top right of the module page in your dashboard.
Each individual automod module must also be enabled in order to function. To do so click on 'Disable' on the module you wish to enable. You could change this to the following three options: 'Delete Message', 'Warn the Member', & 'Delete Message and Warn'.

The automod can select from three different actions to take when a member breaches the rules of the server.
This action simply deletes the message and takes no further action against the member.
This action registers a warning against the offending member. You can view these warnings by using the warnings command under moderation.
This action combines the above two actions. The message will be deleted and a warning will be registered against the offending member.

Each individual module can have specified ignored roles and channels. This allows you to have certain channels where certain actions are allowed.
To add ignored roles and channels, click the 'Settings' button next to the module you wish to edit, and add roles or channels from the drop-down.
