Step 1: Add The Sentinel to your team
Due to Reddit's API rate limits, we have multiple instances (bot accounts) of TheSentinelBot. Follow these instructions to figure out which bot to add:
- Check the number of subscribers your subreddit has
- If the sum of a bot's Current Subscribers and your subscribers is less than Max Subscribers, then you can add that bot
- At a minimum the bot needs the
|Bot||Current Subscribers||Max Subscribers||Availability|
Step 2: Login!
Once you've logged in, you can go to
to enable or disable features of TheSentinelBot.
One of the most powerful capabilities we have is media blacklisting. This allows a subreddit to blacklist an entire media channel (Youtube channels, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc.), and know that regardless of which users make a link post, self post, or comment including a link to that media channel, it will be removed. In addition to a local subreddit blacklist that you manage, we also have a global blacklist controlled by the moderators of /r/Layer7 and /r/TheSentinelBot to ensure that global spam is met with swift action.
Advanced Mod logs
Overcome the limitations of the modlog and search in any way imaginable: such as inputting a thing id and seeing all actions related to that post or comment, searching by author, mod, title, etc. If you set an action_reason in AutoModerator, you can even filter by that enabling you to see how useful your AutoMod rules are. You can even build a mod matrix in less than a second allowing you to know who's the powermod in your group, or what the most common actions are.
