As an admin, or if given some permission, this feature allows the message to be "locked" or whatever. "locked" messages may not ever be deleted, ever. You would still be able to edit them but nobody - not even the server owner himself - could delete that message. The only way one would be able to delete the message is to delete the entire channel. This would be useful because a lot of servers I see have long messages, old messages, and other such things that would be difficult or impossible to restore. For example if a server's staff abused they could easily wreak havok by simply deleting the rules.
Seems useless imo-1
maybe get trusted people to be admins or make backups, whichever works, plus when an admin abuses he won't delete a couple messages and that's it, they'll delete the channels, which makes locking messages useless.0
Accidently posted a webhook url to my repo. Some @*$&%^ found it and flooded the channel with locked messages. Now I have to delete the channel.
My fault entirely, but while I don't see the benefits of locked messages, I sure do see the pitfalls.1
had to redo a whole channel because somehow i or the bot aperently made a message wich is ment to set something with the bot up a locked message. instead of that you should simply be able to restrict admin powers in certain channel so only the owner or certain roles/people get a pass on it0
how do you send a undeletable message?0
does anyone know how to send an undeleteable message?0
I faced this issue right now. Here is what i did:
- Wanted to create an event with Apollo bot with the command "!event"
- Only messages from friends was enabled
- Can't delete the message anymore-1
I have the same problem, but only happens when i demand to my bot to delete a message
But sometime, the bot respond a bit quickly, so the message seems to not send correctly and lock itself
i'm not sure if its right, but it really look like its a bot problem that does that . . .0
