I created a command that calls out a random viewer from a stream a moderate for, but I want to avoid calling out any lurkers. Is there a way to prioritize active users when using an API to do this or avoid calling out lurkers altogether?
I am learning how to use Nightbot in a multitude of different ways (I’m a noob lol). I recently learned about using APIs (I think I’m using the term correctly?) and how I can randomly tag viewers in chat.
I created the following command for a friend’s stream:
BoggyBoiPow “Hey $(urlfetch https://2g.be/twitch/randomviewer.php?channel=$(channel)), gimmie your Dogecoin or else!” Oh no! Boggy has a gun and wants your cryptocurrency!! What will you do? !give or !run
Please note that !give and !run are separate commands I created.
The one issue I am running into is that Nightbot lurkers regardless of whether they said something or are inactive. I want to create a command similar to this one for another streamer I moderate for, but they’re concerned that lurkers may feel uncomfortable if they get called out. This is totally understandable. However, many active viewers shared that they’d love to participate in something like this.
Is there a way to prioritize active users over lurkers? It would be even better if lurkers were not chosen at all.
If you need clarification or I used an incorrect term, please let me know! I am always happy to learn!
