What is Craig?

*Craig is a bot that records audio in voice channels and makes them available for download afterwards.*

<aside> 💡 There are two Craig bots: @craig and @giarc

Giarc is a second instance of Craig, meant to be a backup. It will record in the same channel, but you are supposed to be able to use Giarc independently of Craig.

To do so, use @Giarc as the command prefix instead of :craig:

How to Record

<aside> 💡 If Craig isn't working there, try going to the #🤖bot-commands channel [under Housekeeping] to use the command.

</aside>

You can also explicitly specify a channel name. For instance, to record the “General” channel, type **@craig**join General

<aside> 💡 Don't start Craig until the event is about to start. If there is silence, Craig will stop recording after 5 minutes.

</aside>

<aside> 💡 If everyone leaves the voice channel while Craig is still recording, he will stop recording. You don't need to use the leave command in that case.
