Nightbot isn't filtering chat properly

#1

I’ve set up blacklisted words to keep out of my chat but that seems to have stopped working. Mainly curse words I try blocking and nightbot is not stopping it

#2

On what platform are you experiencing issues? If it’s on Twitch or YouTube, then making the bot a moderator gives it sufficient permission. If on Discord, the bot must have Manage Messages permission.

#3

It’s on twitch and nightbot is a mod. Link filtering works fine and the blacklisted words used to work but didn’t seem to catch any thing last stream

#4

Are messages with your blacklisted keywords getting through? Twitch has its own spam filtering called “AutoMod”, which does conflict with Nightbot as messages are blocked before Nightbot can see/act on them.

I have twitchs auto mod off and yeah the words were left unfiltered in chat

#6

Then you would need to post specific examples showing items on your blacklist mixed with messages that are posted that Nightbot doesn’t remove so that we can investigate.

#7

Did a command in chat to check if night bot was there

I just tried two of your blacklisted words in your chat and it is operating normally.

Wasn’t working that day I posted but must have just been a hiccup. Thanks for looking into this.

Btw, I should point out that blacklisting “anal” and “ass” with the asterisk (*) like you did, will also blacklist words such as “analysis” or “association”, read the text under the blacklisted words list to understand how it works.
