Hello I’ve just created my own chat bot to keep a log of certain users chats for a research project. I can connect and send messages to my own channel but when I try to get messages from another channel I can’t receive them. I can’t even send a message to any other channel but my own. It was working yesterday so I’m confused why today it stopped working and my bot isn’t globally banned because if I log into my bots account I can manually type in other people’s channels.
My bot can connect to the irc channel and joins the channel but isn’t receiving or sending messages. Here’s a sample output:
:tmi.twitch.tv 001 satokaheni :Welcome, GLHF! :tmi.twitch.tv 002 satokaheni :Your host is tmi.twitch.tv :tmi.twitch.tv 003 satokaheni :This server is rather new :tmi.twitch.tv 004 satokaheni :- :tmi.twitch.tv 375 satokaheni :- :tmi.twitch.tv 372 satokaheni :You are in a maze of twisty passages, all alike. :tmi.twitch.tv 376 satokaheni :> :firstname.lastname@example.org JOIN #incontroltv :satokaheni.tmi.twitch.tv 353 satokaheni = #incontroltv :satokaheni :satokaheni.tmi.twitch.tv 366 satokaheni #incontroltv :End of /NAMES list Sent: PRIVMSG #incontroltv :Hello Chat Join: Success
And I receive no messages after that. If I look at the viewer list my bot is in the viewer list it’s just not receiving and the hello chat I send doesn’t show up in the users chat.
Thanks for any help.
