Please Note:
Server owners and staff accept that our team will only provide support for bot issues, NOT with setting the bot up for you. If you are having issues after a reasonable amount of research, trial, and error, feel free to join the support server, and we will try our best to help with any issues that may arise. Furthermore, we reserve the right to remove your whitelist if we feel HepBoat is not right for your community.

Setting Up HepBoat

HepBoat is only available to servers that meet certain criteria, please see the home page for more information about this criteria.

  • The server does not promote or promulgate NSFW content (we have exceptions to this that you can ask about in our support Discord server linked above).
  • HepBoat will be used to moderate, not "just for fun".

How to set up HepBoat

First, the guild trying to use HepBoat will need to be on the whitelist. See the Quick Start Guide for details. If the bot is invited to a guild that is not whitelisted, it will immediately leave. If you're whitelisted but the bot leaves, please let us know in the support server.

Before inviting HepBoat, if you are not the owner, please advise the owner that the bot WILL message them with some instructions and a welcome message, just so that they are aware.

If the bot is whitelisted for your server, it will stick around and automatically set itself up, rather than having to run a command like you did in the past!

caution

If there are any issues with the setup, it will automatically notify the admins. If HepBoat remains in the server, you are the owner, and you don't appear in the dashboard, please visit us in our support server, this is a very rare occurance and it almost always is the cause of a user error.

Your guild configuration should now be available at https://dash.hep.gg for editing.

Use the sidebar to read about each plugin, and then use the example below along with the information in the sidebar to set up your own customized HepBoat configuration.

info

The bot will need each plugin explicitly enabled in order to use the corresponding commands in the server.

Example HepBoat Configurations

The following are some valid configuration examples. While you can simply copy-paste these configurations to your own server's configuration and fill in the blanks for a functional HepBoat, it is highly encouraged that you read through the full documentation to understand each component and customize HepBoat to your server's needs.
