I’m working on a chat bot and I am having problems with sending whispers.
Sounds familiar, right?
I’ve been through the developer documentation (the chat bot section) enough that I have portions memorized. From everything I’ve seen in the developer documentation, it does indeed state that sending whispers using a chat bot is a possibility. I’ve been through numerous community messages relating to this same type of issue, finding tips and hints that seem to change over time. The most recent trend I’ve noticed is that sending whispers is not reliable. While this may be true, this is not an acceptable answer when the API documentation clearly states that whispers can be sent.
So can someone, anyone (ideally an official response), please point me in the direction of something that is reliable? If there is not something reliable, then would someone that knows the official rule(s) (e.g. criteria for when a whisper is allowed to be sent and not flagged as spam) please make it clear?
