Cooldowns are essential to controlling how often a command is used and to avoid spam in chat.
Global cooldowns are the minimum frequency a command can be triggered by any user in chat.
If a single user triggers a command, the entire chat must wait until the cooldown is over until this command can be triggered again.
User Cooldowns are the minimum frequency a single user trigger a command.
If User-A triggers a command they must wait X amount of seconds before they can trigger the command again. User-B can still trigger the command.
A command alias is used to add another command name without creating a new custom command.
Create an alias by typing in the box and using the Enter key on your keyboard or the Create button. Click the X on the alias to delete it.
