Shouts at you when you shout at it

  • Owner: lambda#0987
  • Prefix(es): @CAPTAIN CAPSLOCK
  • Servers: 188



NOTE: Before this bot will function, a server moderator has to run the @CAPTAIN CAPSLOCK enable command. Sorry for the inconvenience.

How does it operate?

Say something. Say anything. But say it LOUDLY. The cap' will log what you say (for your server only) and shout something random back at you. The more you shout at it, the bigger its repertoire gets. Duplicate text will not be logged.

What about message deletes/edits?

Deleting a message will delete its correspond entry in the database, if there is one. Editing a message will update the entry to match, however,if you sneakily edit a shout so that it's no longer a shout, the bot will delete the correspond entry in the database instead. For example, saying "YOOOOO" and then editing it to "yo" will mean that the cap' will not say "YOOOOO" anymore.

If a channel is deleted, all of its corresponding messages are deleted from the database.

When Captain Caps is kicked from a server, all shouts for that server are deleted from its database.

What commands does it have?

Not many.

  • @CAPTAIN CAPSLOCK toggle will enable or disable the shout response and logging for you.
  • If you have the Manage Messages permission server-wide then you can use the @CAPTAIN CAPSLOCK toggleserver command. This will make the shouting auto response opt-in or opt-out for the entire server. If it is opt-in,users will need to run @CAPTAIN CAPSLOCK toggle before the bot will log their shouts and repeat them.
  • If you have permission to delete a message then you can also remove it from the database by using the @CAPTAIN CAPSLOCK remove command.

What's in a shout?

Would a scream by any other name still be as loud?

The algorithm for determining shouts is in utils/ All word characters are considered, and if more than half of them are uppercase, the sentence is a shout. Certain strings are ignored (mostly emoticons). See the utils/ file for more details.
