In-chat Commands (Discord)

The ?warn and ?mute commands should be issued in the #channel of the offense in most cases. When you use any of these commands, the bot will remove the command and tell the chat that the user was warned or muted. Then, it will send the member a DM telling them what they've done wrong. An entry will be added to the public-facing #moderation-log. Bans and kicks are generally reserved for full moderation discussion, unless there is critical reasoning to remove someone.

Moderation Commands

Moderation is handled through the Dyno Discord bot. For a full command listing for Moderators, visit For additional syntax or help on any individual command, run the command without any parameters (eg. just ?warn) in #staff-bot-spam.
