Synapse Moderation Bot
A bot for managing and moderating our community Discord server.
Note This bot is not public. While you can host it on your own, be aware that it is not designed to run without Discord's privileged intents, specifically the message content and user presence intents. Discord is very strict about granting these permissions to applicants, even with verified bots. This also means we offer no warranty if you attempt to do self-host this software anyway. Self-host at your own risk!
We need a bot to help us automatically moderate and log user actions in our Discord server, that also empowers our staff to take action where needed.
Our primary goal for this project is to enable our staff to take action and better prepare them for handling our community.
Our secondary goal for this project is to enable open feedback channels between users and staff about our moderation policies.
Our tertiary goal for this project is to provide a seamlessly integrated moderator dashboard that also looks beautiful and feels good to work with.
All the essential bot code for the project can be found under the root directory and is written in Kotlin. Ktor is used for HTTP handling in the dashboard.
Before you contribute, we ask that you have a working knowledge of Discord bot development and Kotlin as well as Web technologies for the dashboard. We also ask that you respect our users, employees and fellow contributors when contributing to our software.
