InstaMod: An Automoderator-like bot which allows moderators to create custom actions based on a user's account activity
- Q: So, like...what does it do tho?
A: More like what doesn't InstaMod do! But in all seriousness, InstaMod is responsible for automatically assigning user flair based on the user's account activity. It also has many handy features that can be used by moderators such as advanced thread locking and custom ratelimiting. For a more in-depth explanation, please check out InstaMod on Github!
Q: I got a PM about custom flair permissions. What does that mean? How did I get this? WHAT IS HAPPENING?
A: Calm down there buddy. You received that flair because your account meets the criteria determined by the moderators of this subreddit. Normally you can change your flair through Reddit on the sidebar, but that has been disabled to allow InstaMod to function properly. Instead, you simply have to follow the instructions in the PM you were sent. Please check out the PM Commands section below for more information. Once you apply a custom flair, you will no longer receive the default automatic flair.
Q: What are my options for custom flair CSS?
A: If you have been granted custom flair permissions, then you can select a CSS class to go with your flair text. Here is the list of available options:
Bitcoin, Litecoin,Ethereum, Ripple, Dash, NEM, NEO, Iota, Monero, ETC, OMG, ZCASH, BitShares, Dogecoin, Factom, SIA, ARK, Peercoin, Namecoin, Nxt, Waves, Moon, Fan, Analyst, Gentleman, Trader, Observer, Developer, Altcoiner, Investor, Miner, Student, Entrepreneur, Pacifier
- Q: What am I allowed to put in my custom flair?
A: This has been the topic of much debate lately haha. Please do not use the flair for self-promotion, referral links, wallet addresses, scams, vulgar language, etc. Using custom flair for any of these things may result in your account losing its custom flair permissions and no one wants that!
Q: I just have the regular old default flair. What does this stuff in my flair mean?
A: If you have the default automatic flair then it will update once a week with your current account stats. This includes account age for young accounts and a QC score for crypto subreddits. QC is short for Quality Comments. It is the count of positive comments (a score of 3 or higher) subtracted from negative comments (a score of -1 or less). Earn enough QC and you get custom flair permissions!
Q: I don't have custom flair yet but I really really want some. Can you help me?
A: Yes...but ideally you should earn it by contributing to the discussion in the subreddit. If you feel that you have extenuating circumstances, then one of the mods can manually whitelist your account through the bot.
Q: Why did my custom flair get reset?
A: This recently happened because of a change in how custom flair was assigned. It shouldn't happen again, and if it does, please contact /u/shimmyjimmy97 as there is likely a bug in the code
Q: My flair is empty and it won't change. What do?
A: This also shouldn't happen, but if it does the bot may have just missed your comment the last time. Try leaving another comment and see if it updates within the next couple minutes.. If that doesn't work go ahead and shoot /u/shimmyjimmy97 a PM so he can figure out what's going on.
Q: I don't trust you guys. Where can I see the settings for this thingamabob?
A: Have no fear random paranoid user! You can view all the current settings for the bot right here. InstaMod reads each subreddit's settings directly from that page, so you can be sure that it is an accurate reflection of how the bot is configured. Please note the documentation linked at the top of the page. You will likely not be able to make sense of the settings without at least glancing at it.
Custom Flair: Users who meet the specified criteria will receive a PM that looks like this. The link will open up a preformatted message which will look like this. Simply replace the capitalized text with whatever text you would like your flair to say. Do not change the subject or reply to the bot as if it were a real human. This is an automated process and the syntax must be correctly followed for it to function properly. If you have the proper permissions, please click here to open up the custom flair PM.
