There's also random variables that can be used:

{random} picks a random number between 0 and 10


How to use arguments

In the custom command response you can write {n} to copy the nth argument.
You can also use ... to copy a range of arguments.

By combining them you can do for exemple:
{1...} to copy all the arguments
{...3} to copy the first 3 arguments
{2...6} to copy arguments from the 2nd to 6th

Example of a report command

Default argument value

By adding :default text at the end of the code, you can add a default value for when the argument is not specified by the user.

If no default value is set, the bot will copy the code to indicate how to use the command.

Same example as above without giving default values

Same example but with default values
