If you're interested in having Ragebot in your group, you can easily add it in.
You do this simply by clicking this link on your phone, and it should open the profile with one of the Ragebots (you can also find the list of all the bots under the "Status" section). From there, you click Open Chat, and then type "Friend" (without the " "). Ragebot should respond with "I'll be your friend! You can now add me to groups."
After that, you'll be able to add it into any of your groups using the + Add People function in Kik.
It is possible to use Ragebot without giving it admin powers, but if you want it to automatically remove the spam (thot) bots that enter your group or if you want to use 48 mode, you'll need to make it admin first.
Ragebot is a free group management tool, but we do encourage donations if you enjoy using it! Click here for more information.
If setting rules isn't working and/or Ragebot isn't detecting you as admin, there's two possible solutions.
First solution works if it does display admins correctly, but you still cannot set rules or use other admin-only commands despite being admin.
The solution is simple - you just invite someone to your group chat. After that, it should let you set rules.
How to fix it if it doesn't let you use admin commands.
The second solution is only necessary if Ragebot doesn't display the admin list correctly.
You fix it by writing "Talkers" and then "Admins" again - then it should be fixed.
How to fix it if it doesn't display admins correctly.
If none of this worked, try removing Ragebot (if you are admin, you can do this through the "Rage leave" command) and re-adding it.
If you need further help getting it fixed, you can ask for our help in the Support group #Rage_Bot.
There are several safeguards in place to protect the stability of Rage. This includes flood/spam prevention. If you are muted by Rage, this will clear within 4 hours.
Ragebot lets you know in the group chat when you get muted. From that moment until the clock expires, Rage will not respond to any commands or substituions triggered by your account in the group you were muted in.
Ragebot can only kick spambots if Rage is made an admin. Then Rage will only kick bots as they enter the group - it doesn't kick any spambots that are already in the group.
Ragebot will occasionally miss spam bots that may seem obvious to you. This is because Ragebot is after all just a scripted program, not an AI. If a bot does not meet certain requirements of "being a bot" Ragebot assumes its human. These requirements have been lessened in later iterations of Ragebot due to complaints of Rage disallowing actual humans.
As mentioned above, Ragebot is simply a scripted program and sometimes makes mistakes.
One way to work around this, is to have the same person rejoin again immediately after the first time - Ragebot will not kick upon second entry within a short time estimate.
Another way to work around this, is to either demote Ragebot temporarily, or making it leave through the "Rage leave" command, letting the person enter in peace and then re-adding RageBot and promoting it again.
This is most likely because an admin of your group has set "Permissions" to 3.
If you are an admin of the group, you can quickly check this by writing "Permissions".
You can read more on the "Permissions" command under the Commands section.
If Rage left your group right after someone joined, it may be because you already have another Ragebot in your group - please check your members list.
You cannot use multiple Ragebots in the same group.
If it left during a time when nobody new joined the group, it usually means that that specific Ragebot has been banned by Kik.
There's nothing we can do to prevent this, but you can add in another Ragebot - check the Status page to view which ones are available.
We encourage users to use the Recommended bot (button at the top), that way you're guaranteed to get a bot that isn't full or overcrowded.
Remember to use the "Import all" command to recover the data for your group.
If you're trying to add in a new Ragebot to your group, you may get a message saying "Error - you can't add people to a group who aren't chatting with you. We'll send them an invite to let them know you tried."
This issue occurs if you haven't friended Ragebot first.
You can do this by private messaging Ragebot, saying "Friend" (without " ") - Ragebot should respond with "I'll be your friend! You can now add me to groups."
If Ragebot doesn't respond, it could be because someone needs to do the captcha - check our status page and ensure it's not stuck on "Waiting for captcha" (white circle left to the name).
Example of the issue.
If Ragebot has ended up as an owner of the group, the admins can make it leave by using the "Rage leave" command in the group chat - then group ownership will be passed on to another admin.
If you want to pass on ownership of a group to someone else, remember to demote Ragebot first, or it might accidentally end up as owner when you leave the group.
If Ragebot has ended up as the owner and there are no admins left in the group, you'll have to either contact Rayg directly (PM him on Kik, explain the issue and include the group #), or just create another group.
Sometimes issues occur with the 48 mode not functioning properly.
Most of these issues can be fixed easily by removing Ragebot from the group and adding it back in.
If this doesn't work, contact us through the Support group and we will help you out.
There are currently no plans of making an iOS version, however we are planning on making a website version of the Doctor app.
Until then, if you really want to help out, you can run the app through BlueStacks Android Emulator on a Windows PC.
Sometimes when you private message Ragebot, it will say "Oops, it looks like Rage's phone has been off/disconnected for a while. We'll deliver your message when they connect again."
This doesn't matter, and it doesn't mean Ragebot is offline - just ignore it.
Example of the issue.
Sometimes when you try to click directly on an @ of a Ragebot from within the Kik app, it displays an error saying "Oops - No user with the username was found."
This is a general Kik issue and not something we can fix - but if you click the username a second time, it should work.
Example of the issue.
Kik has implemented a type of link spam protection feature, so if an account posts too many links within a certain time span, the links become unclickable - this feature affects all accounts, including Ragebot. It affects both the links from the "Usage" command and custom links implemented through substitutions.
Most people will never experience this issue on their own accounts because they don't post links above the threshold, but when Ragebot is in hundreds, even thousands of groups, it quickly triggers the link spam protection feature.
Although we've now made an alternative method of posting links through Ragebot so they can become clickable.
This feature only works with substitutions. Not with the rules.
You do it like this:
"Link -> Ragebot.net"
Then the link substitution will be clickable once triggered.
If you want to add some text to the link, do it like this:
"Link -> Ragebot.net This is the link to the website"
Then the text after the link will be displayed within the link box.
Link with text.
The clickable link function only works for substitutions with text after that contains less than 56 characters - though the link itself is excluded from the character limit.
The substitution has to start with the link itself in order to work - having a link in the middle or end of the substitution will not work.
Note: both Ragebot and the person creating the substitution need to have been in the group for more than 24 hours in order for it to work.
If you or Rage is still in "Kik jail", the substitution won't be clickable and/or it won’t trigger the substitution at all.
It should work after a maximum of 24 hours.
