Message Counter

In this page, you will learn the detailed usage of the message counting feature.

What is message counter?

This module of apollo lets users track messages on their discord server. Apollo has a very customisable and advanced message tracking system. This module in any way does not track or store your messages in a database. You can also disable this command for yourself if you wish your messages not be counted by apollo.
Message Counter is disabled by default for your server, use a!messages enable to start counting messages in the server.

Subcommands for the Message Counter Module

a!messages

This command shows the number of messages that has been sent by the user. You can also use this command to check the message sent by other users in the server too by using a!messages {@user} or by using a!messages {userID}.
Checking message count for self
Checking message count for another user

a!messages enable / a!messages disable

This command helps to enable or disable the message counting feature in your server, and as mentioned above by default the message counter is off for the given server.

a!messages settings (Blacklist + Whitelist)

Blacklist Mode

In this mode, apollo will blacklist the given channels where the messages will not be counted. But the messages in all the other channels will be counted as usual.
notice in blacklist mode the "Blacklist mode" button has turned green
In the example shown above, we have set apollo to ignore (blacklist) the #test-channel-1 channel and any messages sent in that channel will not be counted. To add a channel to blacklist, just use the dropdown menu to select it.

Whitelist Mode

In this mode, apollo will whitelist the given channels where the messages will be counted. But the messages in all the other channels will not be counted.
notice in whitelist mode the "Whitelist mode" button has turned green
In the example shown above, we have set apollo to only count from the #test-channel-1 channel and any messages sent in that channel only be counted. To add a channel to whitelist, just use the dropdown menu to select it.
Always click on "Save Changes" to make sure the bot has stored your input
You can add multiple channels to the blacklist or the whitelist.
Count from all channels deletes the existing lists and counts from all channels.

a!messages add / a!messages remove

This command lets you add or removes messages for a particular user or yourself. Note that this feature can only used by administrators of a server.
adding messages to self
removing messages from another user
Removing messages greater than the messages a user has will reset their message count back to zero and not any negative integer.

This command allows you to reset the messages of a particular user in your server.

This command shows the messages sent by everyone from greatest to the least. This command uses pagination so you can scroll through through multiple pages to check the message counts.
