What is the YAGPDB bot on discord?

As we have already discussed above, Yag Bot is a popular discord bot primarily used to moderate and manage your server and channels. This includes assigning roles, admonishing spammers using different commands and offers many fun and useful features.

It was originally created and supported by another open-source bot owned by a guy named Jonas (username: Jonas-737).

YAGPDB’s reaction roles feature and β€˜cat facts and memes’ features are two of the most unique and popular ones among users. Let us discuss these two features along with an array of other cool features and commands it has to offer in detail in the section below.

Yag discord bot features

Discord’s yag bot has loads of incredible and remarkable features and commands that make it unique and set it apart from other popular bots such as mee6 bot, Dyno-bot, groovy bot, etc. Let’s get right into it.

Auto-moderator

Yag Bot offers a very customizable and useful feature of auto-moderation using which you can pre-set different rules and messages. The bot will then activate and execute these in due time. An example of this is to penalize (i.e., mute, ban or kick) people automatically for breaking a rule. You can also set it to temporary or permanent. The only thing that you need to do is define these roles.

YAGPDB reaction roles – self assign roles

This is a relatively new and unique feature of the Yag bot. Members can use it to self-assign roles using reaction roles on pinned messages or commands. You can assign single or multiple roles simultaneously too. Advanced features such as using one role to acquire another or ignoring roles are also part of it. This can help with customizing it according to your needs. You can even organize multiple roles using the different menus available.

Manual moderations

The Yag bot can provide tailor-made messages that are specific to a broken rule, so these can be used to contact the user manually to mute, ban, kick or warn them. Advanced cleaning options can also be used to help to apply these commands.

Displaying server stats

You can set up a channel for server stats that can be made public for all users (optional). Graphs can also be used to display these stats.

E.g., the number of messages that a member has sent, The number of members that have joined or left a channel, the number of members playing games, the number of members online at a specific time, etc.

Linked feed stats

You can also get feed stats such as DMs, server join or leave messages for specific channels, messages from feeds fetched from YouTube, Reddit, and other apps that can be linked to discord.

Tailored or custom-made commands

Customized commands such ass β€˜starts with,’ β€˜contains,’ β€˜exact match’ can be set up to execute the task. This way, you can set up automation, i.e., automatic responses to messages and questions.
