As soon as you invite the bot to your server, a few modules will be immediately available to all of your members. The restricted modules, on the other hand, will only be available to server managers (users with “Manage Server” permissions).
This module lets server managers authorize server members to use any of the bot’s modules, on a module basis.
Each module can be enabled for a list of roles and/or individual users, so that authorized members will immediately have access to all of the commands contained in said module. Discord permissions checks (e.g. “Manage Messages”) will still apply and take precedence, where applicable. The list of Discord permissions needed to run each command is written below each command within this documentation.
Modules can also be completely disabled within a server, which means not even server managers will be able to use them unless the module is re-enabled (see !permtogglemod).
Before role permissions are checked, another layer of permissions are checked for non-manager members: channel overrides. Each module can be locked to be only run within a specified set of channels (whitelist mode) or outside a specified set of channels (blacklist mode). See Channel Overrides.
A small subset of commands ignores these limitations and can always be run by everyone in the server, as long as the whole module isn’t disabled. These commands have a dedicated way of setting their permissions, which is usually specified in the dedicated module page. This particular set contains the following commands: !verbose, !emojisubmit, !bid, !listrules, !submit, !lsar, !iam and !iamnot.
Default Module Permissions¶
Here’s the list of modules that are automatically enabled for everyone as soon as the bot joins a server and those that are locked to server managers only. Internal module permissions and in-Discord permissions checks (e.g. “Manage Messages”) still apply.
Available to everyone¶
Toggles verbose mode for the current user in the current server.
Users in verbose mode will have GiselleBot send a Direct Message to them whenever one of their commands is rejected silently for a permissions issue.
In addition, users incorrectly typing a command may receive a DM with a suggestion of a correct command they actually have access to (e.g. typing !bang as moderator will suggest !ban, while typing the same incorrect command as normal user will suggest !urban).
The output of verbose mode is always sent via DM, hence it can be activated on a user’s basis on each specific server without messing with the server’s activities.
This command is always available to everyone.
Roles and Users Permissions¶
Shows a summary of all the modules that are available within the current Discord server, and the corresponding permissions.
!pesm (module name)
Shows a detailed view of the permissions (users, roles, channel overrides) for a single module.
!peem (module name) (role and/or user id(s)/mention(s)/q_name(s))
Enable the selected module for the specified users and/or groups. The bot will seamlessly understand if the entity you are using is a user or a role.
!peem moderation "Discord Moderators" !peem administration @Staff
!pedm (module name) (role and/or user id(s)/mention(s)/q_name(s))
Disable the selected module for the specified users and/or groups. The bot will seamlessly understand if the entity you are using is a user or a role.
!pedm moderation "Not Discord Moderators" !pedm administration @Lil Staff
!petm (module name)
Toggles the whole module within the current server.
Completely disabling a module will render it unusable by anyone, including administrators and managers. The module will virtually disappear from the server until re-enabled.
!cpt (module name) (channel id(s)/mention(s)/q_name(s))
Toggles the presence of one or more channels on the override list for the selected module. See below for more details.
Blacklist mode will make any channel that is added with the above command not to show the level up message, while the rest of the channels will show the in-channel level up message.
Whitelist mode will only make the in-channel level up message appear in the selected channels.
!cpt games #spam #games
!cptm (module name)
Toggles override list mode for the selected module:
Blacklist mode will make any command that is run in a channel on the override list not to work. This is the default mode, hence enabling the module on all channels if no overrides are specified.
Whitelist mode will only make the command work in the selected channels.
