Make sure that your bans module is enabled before configuring the bans module (
!module bans to enable, and
!module list to see if it's enabled).
Setting Up Bans Module
This is one of the most easiest features to set up because enabling the module means the feature has been set up. There are no configuration commands for this module. Its sole purpose is simply to ban rowdy people, raiders, or even spam accounts from your community.
The list below details the minimum needed permissions in order for the bans module to function:
- View Channels
- Send Messages
Manage Messages (If using
%das an argument at the end of the ban command)
- Ban Members
Make sure that Gaius' role is higher than your mod role(s) but below your admin role
It is possible to ban people by their role with the banrole comman., This will result in the uninterruptable banning of everyone who has this role. This cannot be canceled because a processed command cannot be canceled.
Required Permissions (Staff)

This is for permanently banned users, not users who were softbanned. Softban is in the kicks module because it doubles as a hard kick.
This is highly useful for servers that allow banned people to submit ban appeals.
Banmsg allows banned members the opportunity to see your community's customized ban message. Whether it's to allow a ban appeal opportunity, tell them to get yeeted on, or say who banned them, where, and why, banmsg makes these possibilities possible.
Required Permissions (Staff)
!banmsg reqreason [off/on/true/false]
!banmsg requnreason [off/on/true/false]
!banmsg Get yeeted on, %user! :Dabalicious: | Sets the new ban message to be sent to banned people
!banmsg reqreason on | Sets the requirement to say the reason in all bans, kicks, mutes, and vcmutes
!banmsg requnreason on | Sets the requirement to say the reason in all unbans, unmutes, and vcunmutes
These flags are useful tools available to you and will be replaced by whatever that flag is meant for (example: %server will be replaced by the name of your server). In the example, any time you change your server's name after the setup, the flag will also change to that server's current name.
|%server||Will be replaced with the server's name|
|%user||Will be replaced with the banned user's name|
|%reason||Will be replaced with the reason provided by the moderator|
Will be replaced with the name of the moderator who performed the ban
As the command name suggests, these commands allows you to see the list of permanently and temporarily banned users respectively...very easy to use and quite useful for auditing and reviewing purposes.
Required Permissions (Staff)
!allbans [noreason] [nodelete]
!allbans noreason | Lists all permanent bans that don't have a reason along with other details of each ban
!allbans nodelete | Lists all permanent bans of account that have not been deleted from Discord
!tempbanlist | Lists all temporary bans (softbans) that are currently active in the server
