Plugin name: censor

The censor plugin provides administrators and moderators a simple way to filter certain types of malicious and offensive content, such as:

  • Invite Links
  • URLs
  • Inappropriate or offensive words (attachment names included)

This plugin combined with the spam plugin can result in a very robust automatic abuse-prevention system.


This plugin should be enabled in conjunction with the infractions plugin for punishment implementation.

When available, only whitelists or only blacklists will be checked. Whitelists will be checked first if both are configured.

Bad nicknames will be reverted to the last appropriate version or assigned a random censored name {int} nickname.

A user will accrue one violation for each message and nickname that triggers a censor deletion or edit.

raid_action_notifyWhether or not to send a DM to users with antiraid measures applied.boolFalse
raid_action_reasonReason sent by DM to users with antiraid measures applied. Notification formatting is taken from the notify config in the infractions plugin if set.strANTIRAID

How Antiraid works

  1. Antiraid measures are enabled once more then count number of joins are detected within interval seconds. The lockdown_duration begins.
  2. All users in the join table for the key_duration will have the raid_action retroactively applied.
  3. All users that join during lockdown_duration will have the raid_action applied.
  4. Antiraid measures will stop once the lockdown_duration expires.
  5. If Antiraid is setup to give out a role, moderators will need to manually run !raid disable to remove all raid roles from remaining users.

The modlog plugin will need to be configured with RAID logs for proper notifyrole alerts.


Please be mindful what level the antiraid configuration is added under, especially if you auto assign join roles in the admin plugin.
