AFK Messages

Overview

AFK messages allow you to automatically display a message to users who ping you. This allows you to explain why you might not be responding or when you'll be back. AFK messages have a 100 character limit to prevent abuse and you are unable to use clickable links/user mentions in the message. Currently AFK messages are permanent and will last until you or a server admin removes it.

If Cakey Bot has the appropriate permissions (Add Reactions and Manage Messages) any AFK message will have a trashcan reaction added to it. When clicked, it will delete the AFK message in order to keep the channel clean.

Setting an AFK Message

You are able to set your own AFK message by typing !afk <message>. If you ever forget what you have your AFK message set to you can always type !afk without any message and it'll show what message you currently have set. (If one is set)

Your AFK message will not be sent if a BOT mentions you or if you mention yourself.

Removing an AFK Message

Users who have the Manage Guild permission node can force remove a user's AFK message using the !unafk <user> command.

You are able to remove your own AFK message by typing the !unafk command.

Extra Configurations

You can also configure AFK messages further by using our Web Dashboard. There are two main options you can change:

  1. AFK Module Status

    • This toggles whether or nor users can set AFK statuses in your guild

  2. Max AFK Time

    • This sets how long the user's AFK status will be active before being automatically removed.

    • This can be anywhere from 1 minute to 10,080 mintes. (1 week)

    • If you want AFK statues to be permanent, you can just set this value to -1.

      • This is the default value for all guilds.
