What is a message mention?

A message mention setting decides which role or "group" to mention (@) when Birthday Bot sends an event message. Acceptable values include everyone, here, @role/role-name, and none.
This setting can be changed for all messages of each message type, not by each singular message.

What is the message time?

The message time is the hour when the bot will send a custom message (in the user's time zone or the server's default time zone, if set up). This setting only affects the message and roles given with certain events that will always happen at midnight (12 am) in the user's time zone or the server's default time zone, if set up. However, Birthday Bot allows you to customize the messages' time so you aren't pinging @everyone or @here at midnight.
This setting can be changed for all messages of each message type, not by each singular message.
