So I have been trying to make my irc bot clear chat using raw messages. But I keep receiving this error telling me that the command CLEARCHAT doesn’t exist.
What I am sending:
<:tmi.twitch.tv CLEARCHAT #mychannel
And what I receive:
[00:43:38] <data> :tmi.twitch.tv 421 mybotname CLEARCHAT :Unknown command
send ‘.clear’ or ‘/clear’
Well yeah, thats the easy way, but what if I wanted to use TMI?
That is. PRIVMSG #channel .clear
Just elaborating on what @tournymastercursebot said:
To clear a chat room:
PRIVMSG #channel :/clear
To clear a user (replaces user with message deleted)
PRIVMSG #channel :/timeout user (much more is allowed here, but this is the textbook example)
These commands result in TMI sending a CLEARCHAT message for clients, which then are used to alter the on-screen text.
Should be documented here Let us know if it’s unclear!
