Inconsistent spam response


#1

When using NightBot, it is not consistent in responding to spam. For example. EMOJI spam detection… Nightbot only responds sometimes… and skips a lot. Is this a known issue?


#2

Hiya, on what platform are you seeing this and what are you spam protection settings?


#3

Youtube is the platform. Settings were default for “emoji” protection. All other spam protection types disabled.


#4

Do you have a specific line of chat we can post in YouTube chat to replicate the behavior? I’m not able to reproduce any issues.


#5

I don’t have a particular pattern, however - the chat in question was VERY fast. Is it possible that the bot was not coping with the load of messages inbound, and skipping some?


#6

That’s not really possible unless YouTube is ratelimiting us. It is worth noting that Nightbot will not repeat spam messages within a short time window, so it might be silently performing actions at high velocity.
