Welcome to Dyno!
A bot’s prefix is the character(s) that all commands start with. For example, Dyno’s default prefix is
?, so to run a command, you would type
? followed by the command name, like
?ban. If there is another bot in your server that conflicts with the
? prefix you can change it to another character or combination of up to 5 characters. If you don’t know your prefix, you can always find it on the
Dashboard page of your server’s dashboard or by running this command:
If Dyno is online try the following:
@Dyno prefix to make sure that you’re using the correct prefix.
If Dyno does not have the
Administrator permission, check if Dyno has the
View Channel and
Send Messages permissions, as well as
Embed Links in that channel.
Check whether the command or module you’re trying to use is enabled by doing
?diagnose [commandname], or alternatively by heading to your Server Dashboard > Commands. Then search for your command and check whether it’s enabled. If disabled, you can enable them on the dashboard or by doing
?command [commandname] or
If none of these work or if Dyno is offline, please head over to our support server.
This guide will show you how to limit certain commands/modules to specific roles or channels.
- You only need to select either Allowed or Disabled. For example, setting allowed roles will automatically disable all other roles.
- The owner and Dyno managers will override all additional command permissions as they are always able to use all enabled commands.
Unfortunately, there is not an option to delete all commands automatically when they are run. However, there is an option to
Delete mod commands after executed, which is located on the
Moderation module of the dashboard. You can create a Custom Command to run another command and delete the trigger command, but this command has to be named something that is not already a Dyno command. For more information on creating Custom Commands, click here.
Admins (serverAdmin) are users who have the
Administrator permission, and managers are users who have a designated Manager Role - they can use all commands and access the web dashboard.
Moderators (serverMod) are users with roles that are added using the
?addmod command or through the dashboard in the Moderation module. By default Server Moderators can access commands listed under Moderator.
Dyno Managers have access to the dashboard at https://dyno.gg/, can create/delete custom commands and can use all commands regardless of any other settings or special permissions.
The server owner and any user or role with the
Administrator permission are always considered Dyno Managers, thus you can’t remove tose roles.
If you do not wish to give a user admin perms in order to access the dashboard, you can add Manager Roles manually through the dashboard under Dashboard General Settings. They are considered Dyno Managers and can access the web dashboard.
Manager Roles can only be edited by those with the
Administrator permission. Only give these permissions to those you trust.
To mention a user, role, or channel, obtain their ID and use the syntaxes below:
Note: Some modules allow you to use variables to mention users/roles/channels. These variables will be listed on the module page of the dashboard. If any of the users, roles, or channels you mention contain special characters such as emotes or zalgo text, Dyno may not be able to mention them properly using the variables and you may have to use the ID syntax mentioned above.
For Dyno to be able to manage or moderate any role, he has to be VISUALLY higher then the role you want it to give or remove in the role settings screen of your Discord server. Otherwise, Dyno will not be able to manage users who have the role.
Drag the role above any roles you want it to manage, as shown above. To learn more about role hierarchy, click here.
This is due to channel permissions. Configure your channel’s send message permission to be Neutral for all roles (which includes the @everyone role for muting) and Deny it for the muted role.
?role command is an admin/manager command by default for this reason, Dyno is the user giving the role so it can give or remove any role that is below it, not the moderator performing the command. You will either need to remove the ability for moderators to use the role command or move Dyno’s role below roles you don’t want it to add. To learn more about how Discord role hierarchy works, click here.
To prevent normal users from spamming, using bad words, spam pinging, etc., Dyno offers the Automod module. Head here to see how to configre Automod in your server.
Dyno does not currently offer a feature to prevent Moderators or Administrators from abusing their privileges or “nuking” the server.
Check out these videos from our How2Dyno YouTube channel for guides on how to set up a verification system with Dyno:
Dyno offers multiple functions to assist in moderating unwanted pings in your server:
Note: Dyno only has the power of a Discord Bot Account and cannot prevent messages from being sent. With either of the options below, the user will still receive the ping.
First, obtain the ID of the user(s) whose ping you want to moderate/respond to. You will need this for both of the following options.
Deleting/Moderating the Ping
Create Rule and give a
Bad Words rule type.
Banned Words (wildcard), add the ID(s) you obtained from the first step followed by a
>. For example,
Actions, select the actions you want Dyno to take when the user is mentioned.
Create Rule to finalize the Automod Rule!
- All Automod rules will not affect Dyno Moderators and Managers.
- If you have Premium, you can select the Warn punishment and set the Custom Response under the Additional Options, by doing that you don’t need to follow the rest of the steps!
Sending a Message
Trigger field, add the ID you obtained from the first step followed by a
>. For example,
Allowed/Ignored Roles/Channels options below.
Wildcard option. This will make Dyno respond to the ping when it is located anywhere in a message.
Add Response to finalize the Autoresponder!
Dyno does not currently have this functionality. However you can create an autoresponder that responds to the discord system message when someone boosts the server, you can see how by clicking here. Just set
just boosted the server as your trigger with wildcard enabled.
To add a role to everyone, use
?role all +roleID. To remove a role from everyone, use
?role all -roleID. In both cases, replace
roleID with the ID of the role. If you want to cancel the process after you run the command, use
If you purchase premium, your email address is required for the payment to take place; Dyno asks for your Discord linked email when you log in so that you don’t need to enter it when you pay for premium. If you don’t wish to pay for premium then your email address will not be used anywhere else, it is only for convenience for those who want to purchase premium.
