This color: only admins can use the command.
This color: it's a PM-only command.
Set rules usage:
Rules (displays the rules/welcome message)
Set rules Welcome! (sets the rules/welcome message)
Delete rules (deletes the rules/welcome message)
With set rules you can set up rules that essentially also functions as a welcome message.
When new people join the group, they will automatically be greeted by the rules.
Everyone can view the rules by typing "rules" in the group chat, but only admins can set or delete them.
You set up rules by typing "set rules" followed by any text you want as the rules.
Please keep in mind it has to be typed in one sentence, like on the screenshot above - not in two seperate posts.
You can type "rules" to check that it looks like you want it to.
If you want to delete them again, type "delete rules" - only admins can do this.
Trigger -> Response (creates a normal substitution)
Trigger ~> Response (creates an admin substitution)
Trigger (triggers the substitution)
List (displays a list of all substitutions)
Delete trigger (deletes the substitution - only admins can delete admin substitutions)
Delete all (deletes all normal substitutions - be careful!)
Delete all admin (deletes all admin substitutions - be careful!)
You can replace "trigger" and "response" with any text.
With substitutions you can program Rage to give a text response to what you type by using an arrow.
There are two types of substitutions, and therefore two types of arrows.
Using a straight arrow (->) you create a normal substitution.
This means that anyone can create it, trigger it, overwrite it and delete it.
But the wavy arrow (~>) is an admin-only substitution.
This means only admins can create it, overwrite and/or delete it.
BUT normal users can still trigger admin substitutions.
Note: the "Permissions" command will affect how users can interact with substitutions.
You set up a normal substitution by typing "Trigger -> Response" into the group chat.
So when someone in the group types "Trigger", Ragebot will respond with "Response".
This can be done with (almost) any word and/or sentences.
If you want to set it up as an admin substitution, you simply use ~> instead of ->.
Note: The only cases where you cannot set up a substitution is if the trigger part of the substitution exceeds 100 characters, or if its a word that's already used as a Ragebot command (or you're trying to set up an admin substitution whilst not being an admin...)
You also cannot create a normal substitution if there already exists an admin substitution by the same trigger.
Substitutions are not case-sensitive.
We will provide more examples below.
Here we are setting up multiple substitutions.
Here you see how they work in function.
With the "list" command, you can view the list of substitutions - although it will only list the first part (the trigger) and not the response.
The list will display both normal substitutions and admin substitutions.
If your list is too long to display all substitutions, you can type "list 2", "list 3" and so on to view the remaining ones.
If you want to delete a substitution, you will need to type "delete trigger", with "trigger" being whatever the substitution is called.
Normal substitutions (->) can be deleted by anyone, whereas admin substitutions (~>) can only be deleted by admins
If you decide you want to delete all normal substitutions, you will need to type "delete all".
If you want to delete all admin substitutions, type "delete all admin" instead.
Rage will list all of the substitutions it has deleted - for a very limited time, you can type "undo" and it will undo the deletion.
The "delete all" and "delete all admin" are both admin-only commands - so you don't need to worry about non-admins doing this.
Warning: Only use this command if you're 100% sure you want to delete everything.
Roll d7 (7 sided die, Rage will pick a number between 1 to 7)
Roll 2d7 (2 dice with 7 sides, Rage will pick two numbers between 1 to 7)
Roll d7 + 10 (7 sided die, Rage will pick a number between 1 to 7 and add 10 to it)
Roll d7 - 5 (7 sided die, Rage will pick a number between 1 to 7 and subtract 5 from it)
Roll who is awesome? (Rage will pick the name of someone in the group)
Roll dog or cat or bird (Rage will pick one of the options, they are separated by "or")
You can use these in substitutions/set rules/set goodbye (Premium). You can use any die numbers & any words between "or".
With roll you can use Ragebot to make RNG (random) selections or to roll dice 🎲.
This introduces a whole new way of using Ragebot, and works more or less the same way as the @roll bot - it was created as an alternative for when @roll was down.
All aspects of roll can be used in substitutions, set rules and set goodbye.
Because this feature can be a little confusing, we are going to be mainly demonstrating the use through screenshots.
Gif kitty (Rage posts a kitty GIF from Tenor)
You can replace "kitty" with any word, and it can be used in substitutions/set rules/set goodbye (Premium).
With gif you can get Ragebot to post a gif from one of the top 50 results of your search term from Tenor gifs, which is similar to how Kik gifs work.
It works the same way that the @gif bot worked before the developer shut it down.
This allows for new entertaining ways for Rage to interact with members through media.
If you type "gif kitty" Ragebot will post a random gif from the top 50 results of the "kitty" search term on Tenor.
Any search term can be used, but we are using "kitty" and "cat" as examples here.
In the example above, we are setting up an admin substitution (~>) for "cat".
Every time someone types "cat", Rage will post a gif of a cat.
Note: Ragebot has to be out of Kik Jail in order to post gifs, and it's not possible to set it to post a specific gif.
48 mode usage:
48 mode (displays description)
48 mode on (enables 48 mode)
48 mode off (disables 48 mode - default)
48 mode cap 98 (sets the cap - 48 by default)
With 48 mode Ragebot will automatically kick the people from the bottom of the "talkers" list when the group is almost full, in order to keep a spot open for new people.
48 mode is off by default, but once enabled it will automatically set the group cap to 48 - so if you have a 100 slot group, remember to change the cap to a higher number before enabling it.
Important: if you only just added Ragebot into your group, we recommend you wait a day or two before enabling this feature so Ragebot has time to accumulate a correct list of who is talking and who isn't.
Otherwise it might kick people who were talking shortly before it was added to the group.
You can change the max group member capacity by typing "48 mode cap 47", or any other number.
By default, this number is set to 48, so for most groups this step is unnecessary.
Setting the cap does not automatically enable 48 mode.
To enable 48 mode, simply type "48 mode on".
When enabled, it will go into effect once a new person joins the group while it is near the cap.
Note: keep in mind that this cannot increase your actual group member limit.
Disallow silent usage:
Disallow silent 2
Allow silent (Default)
With disallow silent, Ragebot will remove users that join and don't say anything within an x amount of minutes.
This feature is useful in setting a time-limit for when a greeting or response to the rules is expected, whilst also combatting the type of "thot" (spam) bots that join without saying anything for hours.
You can either use the "disallow silent" command without any number at the end (default time is 5 minutes), or you can insert a number between 1-15. Example below:
Here we set it to "disallow silent 10" - the new-joining user didn't say anything within 10 minutes and was therefore removed.
Users joining without speaking is very common - these so-called "lurkers" usually stay inactive, or proceed to break the rules of the group.
Note: the feature doesn't affect users who are added to the group or join through invite links / QR codes.
Permissions (displays description)
Permissions 1 (default)
With permissions you can limit Rage's response to users in your group.
It only limits users, admins are not restricted in any way
There are 4 levels.
Level 1 - "Permissions 1"
This is the default setting.
Rage will respond to all users.
Level 2 - "Permissions 2"
Non-admins can't create/edit or delete substitutions.
This means that users are prevented from creating or modifying substitutions, but they can still trigger already-existing substitutions.
Nothing else is affected.
Level 3 - "Permissions 3"
Non-admins can't create/edit or delete substitutions, and they cannot use any commands.
This is similar to Permissions 2, but with the additional limitation that users also cannot use any commands ("ping", "wisdom", "settings" etc.).
Level 4 - "Permissions 4"
Non-admins can't create/edit/delete substitutions or trigger admin-only substitutions, and they cannot use any commands.
This is similar to Permissions 3, but with the additional limitation that users cannot trigger admin-only substitutions (~>), although they can still trigger already-existing normal substitutions (->).
This allows for more flexibility - if you have a group where you want to allow the users to trigger substitutions, but want to reserve some substitutions for admins only, you can use this setting.
Or perhaps you don't want your members to use any substitutions at all - in which case you can make all substitutions into admin-only (~>) substitutions.
