First, I'd like to thank you all for your continues interest and use of my projects, especially my viewerlist bot-tracker.
This tool has been among one of the most requested and used tools I've built, with an average request count of ~5 per second (just for the bots-online list alone).
On April 3rd
, Twitch did shutdown the TMI chatters endpoint which was used to fetch chatterlists across all Twitch and in turn broke this tool.
At this point I wasn't sure if I'd go ahead and try different ways to track bots again because this will become a bit more tricky now.
Over the course of the past two weeks, I received *loads*
of messages from you all.
I do get messages daily across Twitch
, Discord and even Steam asking if I could please revive this tool, showing the huge demand I've never expected.
I thought about new possible methods and a few came to my mind. One I will be using as long as it works for now.
Sooo... Long story short:
This tool is back for now! Yay! :D
What would be a better date than today to share the news, right?
I hope this will help a lot of communities again, as that's the reason I built it at all - And I'm sorry for the downtime!
Please let me know via my socials if you see any issues or have any questions.
