Examples:
// Await !vote messages
const filter = m => m.content.startsWith('!vote');
// Errors: ['time'] treats ending because of the time limit as an error
channel.awaitMessages({ filter, max: 4, time: 60_000, errors: ['time'] })
  .then(collected => console.log(collected.size))
  .catch(collected => console.log(`After a minute, only ${collected.size} out of 4 voted.`));

Bulk deletes given messages that are newer than two weeks.

Examples:
// Bulk delete messages
