Describes how to use Eventcord's event commands for various events, such as karaoke
The event admin role is the role you give to people who you trust to run your events. Eventcord checks the role using the role name. event admin roles do NOT identify who can join the event, only the people who start, stop, or manage the event.
There are currently two types of events: karaoke and general. They are described below.
Karaoke events work in regular voice channels and stage channels. In stage channels, the bot will invite members to speak and remove them as needed. In voice channels, the bot will mute everyone who is not singing and unmute them when the singer is done.
General events are for events on your server that require a basic queue. Utilizing the same code as the karaoke queue, but with the removal of the voice channel aspect. Some uses are gaming events that have a specific list of players (may include a bracket system in the future), but you can use it for almost anything!
Events work on a text channel basis. Each event requires a text channel not being used by another event. Karaoke events require a voice channel not being used by another event in addition to the text channel.
People can group up into groups of up to 4 within an event. This allows for squads, or duets/trios in karaoke
The maximum group size for an event can be set using
;groupsizefollowed by a value between 1 and 4.
To start an event, simply use
;startin the text channel you want to start an event in. You can set a custom event message by typing your message after the command (e.g.
;start Hello guys!). You can mention a channel to start an event in another text channel (e.g.
To end an event, simply use
;endin the text channel which is being used by an active event. You can mention a channel to end an event in another text channel (e.g.
To join an event, use
;joinin a text channel being used by an event. To join a friend in a group, you can mention them while using the join command (e.g.
To leave an event, use
;leave. If you are in a group, this will only take you out of the event, not your friends.
To view the queue, use
The person who is currently up can cycle the event using
;cycle. In karaoke events, this will also unmute all members who were muted. People with the event admin role can always use this command to skip the person who is currently up.
Eventcord can automatically cycle your event with a simple command. This is useful if you want to set a time limit on how long a member can be in event position 0.
- ;autocycle 1m 30s
- ;autocycle 2m
- ;autocycle 50s
- ;autocycle disable
People with the event admin role can manage the queues effortlessly using simple commands.
Anyone in an event may start a vote to kick other members from the event. The members will only be kicked if a certain threshold of votes is met. This command is meant to help the event to self moderate.
You can either start a vote kick for kicking a list of members or a certain event position.
Kick specific members
Kick everyone from an event position
;votekickfollowed by mentions of all the members you wish to start a vote to kick.
- ;votekick @coolperson @notacoolperson @justaperson
- ;votekick @cool
;votekickfollowed by the number of the position you wish to kick.
- ;votekick 1
- ;votekick 0
If members of your server are abusing the vote kick feature, you can disable it using
;config server votekick
Karaoke queues have special features and commands that cannot be used during event queues.
If you have a very large server, stage channels may be easier to use when running events on the server. Stage channels work very similarly to regular events except the bot invites users who are ready to sing and removed them when they indicate they are done. It is suggested you make your event admin role the stage moderator role in the stage channel so they can manage the event and speak in the stage channel.

Auto mute will automatically mute users who are not singing in the channel designated upon the starting of the session. To mute the users, the person who is up can use
;ready. It may take a little bit of time for Eventcord to mute everyone in the channel if the channel has a large number of people. Users will be unmuted upon the
;cyclecommand being used. Eventcord will also manage muting of people who join or leave the channel while someone is singing.
Eventcord also manages the muting of people who join or leave the channel. Here is what Eventcord will do:
Join Voice Channel
Change Voice Channel
Disconnect from Voice
Eventcord will mute the user who joins the voice channel while someone is singing.
Eventcord will unmute people who change voice channels if it has permission.
Kariari cannot unmute people at the moment to disconnect directly from the channel. To get around this, Eventcord will keep note of who is put into this situation and will unmute them once they join ANY voice channel on your guild where Eventcord has permission to unmute.
Eventcord will also respect server mutes made by staff, and will not remove them. Eventcord will keep tabs of who was server muted before muting people. Upon unmuting, these people will not be unmuted, and will stay muted until staff unmutes them.
