Wazebot can sync your roles across the regional Discord servers. A limited number of roles are set by the bot for security reasons; others must be set manually and are not synced automatically. The table below gives the available roles and the permission required to set them. For example, the L6 role can only be given by champs, and only when the command is used in the national server.
|Role||Bot Command||Role Required|
|Country Manager (CM)||!cm @username||CM or above|
|State Manager (SM)||!sm @username||SM or above|
|Large Area Manager (LAM)||!lam @username||SM or above|
|Area Manager (AM)||!am @username||SM or above|
|Mentor||!mentor @username||SM or above|
|Region-specific||!region @username||SM or above|
|Level 6 (L6)||!l6 @username||Champ in national server|
|Level 5 (L5)||!l5 @username||SM or above|
|Level 4 (L4)||!l4 @username||SM or above|
|Level 3 (L3)||!l3||Anyone (role is assigned to command user)|
|Level 2 (L2)||!l2||Anyone (role is assigned to command user)|
|Level 1 (L1)||!l1||Anyone (role is assigned to command user)|
You can search for glossary terms with the command
!glossary, using the format
!glossary search term.
Some channels may have a linked Google Spreadsheet. If your channel does, you can search it using
!lookup. An example command is
!lookup search term.
An autoreply is a message that the bot will reply with automatically when a certain phrase is said in chat. Autoreplies can be created at the channel, server, or global levels. The syntax is by nature somewhat convoluted due to the features provided. To trigger an autoreply, the keyword is sent preceded by an exclamation mark
Channel and server autoreplies can be set by SM+, and global autoreplies can be set only in the national server by champs.
The base command is
!autoreplies, by itself this will bring up a list of available autoreplies for the area it is used in. To add or remove autoreplies, send the command from the server, and/or channel you want it to apply to. The command is made of four parts; base + action + area + trigger term + autoreply text.
trigger term = the keyword that when typed will trigger this response. Do not include the preceding exclamation mark.
autoreply text = the full formatted text that should be return when the trigger term sent.
Here's an example command:
!autoreplies add server testing This is a test.
!autoreplies remove global anothertest This is another test.
Below is a list of some of the global autoreplies which have been set.

You can subscribe to keywords and the bot will message you whenever one is used in a channel that you're in. The commands are somewhat complicated because of the functionality available.
Keywords must be at least 3 characters long and are not case-sensitive.
The base command to use is
!subscription, or variants of these.
Your existing keywords can be listed using
Add a keyword
To add a keyword, use
!keyword add keywordhere. You can use multiple words, but note that you will only be messaged if the entire phrase you use is a match. To add multiple separate keywords, you need to use the command multiple times in individual messages.
Remove a keyword
Remove keywords using
!keyword remove keywordhere. The keyword must exactly match one of your existing keywords or the command will fail.
Ignoring servers or channels
By default, the bot will message you if a keyword matches in any channel that you're in. You can ignore certain servers or channels with the command below. To find the server or channel ID, see the Getting IDs section below.
Ignore a server
To ignore a server:
!keyword ignore server serverid keywordhere. For example, you could ignore the keyword "testing" in the national server by using
!keyword ignore server 300471946494214146 testing.
Ignore a channel
Ignoring a channel uses the same syntax as ignoring a server, except the word "channel" is used instead of "server":
!keyword ignore channel channelid keywordhere. For example, to ignore the keyword "testing" in the GLR channel on the national server, you would use
!keyword ignore channel 300568375900504074 testing.
Unignore a server or channel
Unignoring a server or channel uses the same syntax as ignoring, but with the word "unignore" instead of "ignore". For example:
!keyword unignore server 300471946494214146 testing.
Several bot commands use either channel or server IDs to identify those channels or servers. Getting these IDs is relatively straightforward. Navigate to the channel or server that you want the ID for, and look at the URL of the page. For example, the #michigan channel in the GLR server has this URL:
In all URLs, the first large number is the server ID and the second number is the channel ID. In this example, the server ID is
299563059695976451, and the channel ID is
Alternatively, you can use the command
!whereami and the bot will give you these IDs.
Note that the server and channel IDs may be the same!
