Best practices for using Moderation

1. Moderation General Settings

Most moderation commands have common settings that can be configured to suit your server's needs. These include:
  1. Usage Permissions:
    • Select roles that can use the command and ensure only authorized roles can execute moderation commands.
    • 💡
      This means the command will not appear for roles that are not selected, and it is configured directly in your server's "Integrations" settings. Do not change this manually unless you understand the implications.
  2. Staff Verification:
  3. Enable staff verification by GamerSafer for this command to ensure only verified staff can use it. Set the number of times the command can be executed before staff verification is required.

    It is not necessary to grant ban permissions to the staff role, only the permission to execute the command via the bot. This protects your server from unauthorized mass bans in the event of compromised accounts.
  4. Notifications:
    • Notify members via DM (Direct Message) about their punishment. The message sent will be a standard GamerSafer template. If you disable this option, no message will be sent.
  5. Visualization:
    • Choose whether the command should be visible to everyone in the chat when used or only to the person who used it. If enabled, it will show for everyone; if disabled, it will be ephemeral.

2. Command-Specific Settings

Some commands have additional settings specific to their functionality:

Ban Command (/ban)

  • Synchronization: Sync bans across different servers using GS Defender. Ensure banned users cannot join any of your synced servers.
    • Options:
      • General (Not Recommended): Sync bans with all servers using GS Defender.
      • Partners (Recommended): Sync bans with all partner servers using GS Defender.
      • Customized (Premium): Sync bans with specific servers that use GS Defender by entering their IDs.

Mute Command (/mute)

  1. Muted Role: Select the role to be assigned to muted members and ensure muted users have restricted permissions according to the role assigned.
  2. Discord timeout: Apply a Discord native timeout punishment when a mute is enforced by GS Defender. Use Discord’s native timeout feature alongside the mute role for enhanced moderation.

Warn Command (/warn)

  1. Warning Expiration: Set a default expiration time for all issued warnings. Different expiration periods can be applied if necessary in the command. Automatically expire warnings after a set period, maintaining an up-to-date record of user behavior.
  2. Actions: Set actions for when a user accumulates a certain number of warnings. Choose from Mute, Kick, or Ban, and specify the duration for mute. This helps automate escalated actions for repeat offenders to maintain server order.

3. Commands Functions & Tips

1. Ban

Permanently prevent a user from accessing your Discord server through banning. Tip: If the user was verified by GS Defender, they will be permanently banned and will not be able to rejoin through facial verification.

2. Unban

Remove a user's ban. If you enable verification, this allows them to verify again. Tip: Use this function to give a second chance to users who have shown improved behavior.

3. Kick

Expel a user from your community, but they can rejoin with an invite link. Tip: Use for less serious infractions or as a warning action before a ban.

4. Mute

Temporarily silence a user by assigning a specific mute role or Discord native timeout. Tip: Use this command to temporarily silence disruptive users without removing them from the server.

5. Unmute:

Remove the mute applied to a user, restoring their speaking privileges. Tip: Use to restore a user's speaking privileges.

6. Warn:

Issue a warning to a user, creating a record of the infraction. Tip: Use warnings to document rule violations and as a step before more severe actions like mute or ban. Utilize the Actions system to automate the punishment process.

7. Remove Warnings:

Remove warnings that have been applied to users. Tip: Use to clear a user's record if they have shown consistent good behavior over time. You can automate this process with automatic expiration.

8. List Warnings:

List all warnings issued to users. Tip: Use to monitor user behavior and track infractions.

9. Notes:

Add private notes to a user's profile for the moderation team. Tip: Use notes to document context or details about specific incidents that may not warrant a warning or punishment. It is advisable to keep "Visualization" disabled to ensure confidentiality among the staff.
