I mod for a few streamers on Twitch, and over the past year, have implemented a few more complex command chains that involve Nightbot and other bots (mainly StreamElements). I do this because neither bots can do multi-line responses, or one bot triggers off of streamer events (stream start, follows, subs etc), so I essentially daisy-chain the responses.
However, recently I’ve found that Nightbot no longer respond to at least StreamElements - a command I personally type will get a response from Nightbot, but the identical one by StreamElements would not trigger. From Nightbot’s logs, it is definitely seeing all messages.
Is there a way to control this ignore list, or some workaround to force it to respond?
Nightbot stopped answering other bots to prevent spam, some users with bad intent were using that loophole to have a permanent chain of messages in their chat in order to promote various grifts.
I hope you understand.
If you’re looking for a way to send multiple messages tho’, have a look at this API.
Thank you for the quick reply! I can definitely see that there is scope for abuse, though personally I would have thought some form of throttling or response limit per user would be more effective as any username can be controlled by a bot and scripted. I will explore alternatives with some of the things I want to do within the current framework.
And thank you very much for the API - I will definitely look into using it for some of my automation!
