Blacklist Words/Phrases

Nightbot offers blacklist filters that allows you to set timeouts for custom words, phrases, and patterns.

Usage

Creating and Managing Blacklist Words and Phrases can only be done by the owner and channel managers in the Nightbot Spam Protection menu.

Adding to a Blacklist

To add words and phrases to Nightbot's Blacklist head over to the Spam Protection menu.

Clicking the Options button will open a popout that you can customize blacklist settings.

Options

  • Blacklist - This is the text box of filtered words and phrases you wish to blacklist. Entering one entry per line. You can use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard character to dynamically filter words and phrases. For example, test* blocks test, testing, testerino, etc.

  • Timeout Length - This is maximum length of time Nightbot will timeout users for when being punished for this spam filter. Nightbot always issues a 5 second timeout for first offenses, and repeat offenses yield the length you select here. The 600 second default value is equivalent to 10 minutes.

  • Exempt Userlevel - This is minimum required userlevel to be exempt from this filter. For example if regular is set, regulars are able to use blacklisted words and not get punished.

  • Silent Mode - Enable this setting and Nightbot will no longer give messages to punished users. This is useful for busier channels where Nightbot floods the chat with timeout explanation messages.

  • Custom Message - This sets a custom message to be displayed to users when they are punished from the blacklist filter. Leaving this blank will use the default messages, which are randomly chosen Duke Nukem quotes.

Managing a Blacklist Filter

All filters can be managed through the Spam Protection menu or through the !filters command.
