Practically the same as Member Greeter, but not really the same, the Leaving Member Announcer announces the leaving member from your server, just like the name suggest. Setting the whole thing up is just the same as Member Greeter, but for your conveniecnce, we will walk you through setting this one up.
Enabling the Server's Leaving Member Announcer
1. Toggling the Leaving Member Announcer On
The first thing we're going to do is to enable the server's Leaving Member announcer. You can enable this by typing the command
The notice below shows that I haven't configured my message for this feature yet, therefore, this will use the default message when someone leaves the server!
Similarly, as stated on the message above, if you want to disable this feature in your server, you can do so by typing the command again.
2. Setting the Leaving Member Announcer Channel
Tamako wouldn't know where to send the messages the first time you toggled it on whenever a member leaves - which is why even after you toggled the Leaving Member Announcer, it probably won't respond to any users that are joining. This is where you set up the channel for where the Leaving Member Announcer would be used.
t!setgoodbyech [channel mention | channel ID]
You can either supply a channel mention (e.g. #welcoming-members - where it's shrouded in blue and is clickable) or just a channel ID (right click the channel, select COPY ID, for Desktop)
Setting the channel through a channel mention
Setting the channel through a channel ID. Both work just fine!
3. Trying the feature with the default message
Ooh, a member just left ----> Here's how Tamako would react:
Customizing the Message (Text)
You can also do full customization using only text with Tamako. Here's how it would look like:
As you see, that's an only plain text with a modifier. A Modifier is used as a place holder for the name, server name, and many other things.
We can edit our greeting message just like this with the use of
t!setwelcomemsg msg=set [Message Content]. Easy, isn't it? Let's replicate the result from the image above.
And there we go! Tamako just confirmed it!
Tamako just confirmed your custom leaving member message!
Take a good look at the following!
- Modifiers can be used to replace the text with dynamic information (changing) like the username changes per user Join. You can also use the markdown feature discord offers for text like single for italics, double for bold, etc. Check all the available modifiers here!
- Remember to use the command
t!setgoodbyemsg msg=truebefore testing the configured text message. This will set all of your greeter message to use the message. Same would be for using embed (
- You can still use most of the flavor text (markdown) that you've been using for discord. Bold, italics, underline, strikethrough, spoilers, etc.
Customizing the Message (Embed)
What is an Embed?
Have you seen those type of messages that you can only do when you send some type of link? Or when a bot sends a message in a box with a colored border? That's what an embed is. They are special messages that are often sent by bots which can have a colored border, embedded images, text fields, and other fancy properties. Here's an example of an embed (which you always see if you are a regular on Discord or is a Discord veteran):
Showing an embed from one of Tamako's basic commands, the anime search feature.
You can see many different things set on every part of that embed:
- The top line with a little circle image on the left and the title of the anime on its right is the author field. The circle image is the author image, and the text beside it is the author name. (Well, that's supposed to be for the author, but we can use it whatever we like. Heh.). You can also mask link on that one, which will then be called the author URL.
- The title, which is not used in this embed, is a slightly larger sized text that appears below the author field and just right above the description, which can also be masked through the property known as url.
- The text that writes the score, popularity, and the synopsis, are called description, and the little image beside it which shows the anime cover art is the thumbnail.
- The Border color, which is Grey in this case, is named as color. Simple huh?
- The information and status below is a field type, which unfortunately is hard to implement at my level of coding skills, and therefore will not be included. But hey, you now know it's called an Embed Field! (Thats a lot of information there. *in sarcastic tone.)
- The website below with the search duration is called the footer. You can also add an image before it, just like the author field. The image there is called footer image, and the text beside it is called footer text. Great naming as usual.
- You can also add a large image below the fields, just above the footer. This is named image. ( *facepalms in Tamako)
- Now remember those highlighted words (except the Field, cause, you know, I already explained why) because we are going to be using them to guide you on how to set your embed greeter message!
How to set up the values for the Embed?
Now that you know what's an embed (not that you didn't know it before reading this) and it's component, it is now easier to understand how to create one.
Let's begin by typing
t!setgoodbyemsg embed=set on our typing field. Do not send this message yet, this section of the message will allow the bot to understand that you are trying to set something on your embed. It should be followed by embed options, with a format of
-optionname:[option-value]. Option name and the corresponding allowable values will be discussed below. It should also be worth noting that you can pass as many embed options as you like.
You can still use markdown flavors on the embeds except for the author, title, and footer field. Embed does not support masked links / hyperlinks as of the moment, which is unfortunate. However, modifiers can also be used anywhere on the embed.
Embed options that allows text placement includes the previously mentioned author name (
-author=name:), title (
-title=:), description (
-description=:), and footer text (
-footer=text:). This places the text inside the brackets to their location according to what was previously discussed.
Embed options that only allows URL to be passed through. This includes the masked links and the url for images to be used. You can use the url providing modifiers on this options too, such as the avatar URL or server icon url. This includes author image (
-author=image:), author url (
-author=url:), url (
-url:), thumbnail (
-thumbnail:), image (
-image:), and footer image (
As mentioned earlier, embed are unique for having a single band of color on its side, which is also modifiable in this case. Just use the option
-color:to set it. Note that only valid hex codes are accepted.
Worthy to be remembered
You can set these options on different messages. Example, you set the thumbnail and color on a message, then you set the title and description on another message, the embed settings from those two options are saved.
Let's test how it looks like:
