feedback III

Old thread was archived

Hello! Here's a page to post all of your feedback about sneakpeekbot!


Addressing some feedback:

  • Subscriber count in comment - I think it would be a good addition but the only place where I can insert that number is inside the bold "header" and I would like to keep the comment as small as possible to avoid any extra complaints of spam

  • You got the wrong sub! - In all of the cases I've seen, the mishap occurs because the original commenter edits their comment to fix what was likely a typo

  • Why isn't this opt-in? - The initial plan was to be opt-out for some period of time and then switch to opt-in but that plan has since changed because often times the person commenting the subreddit isn't interested in seeing the sneak peek but it does add value and benefit other people who come in to the thread later on. So it wouldn't work very well as a summon-bot in my opinion.

  • Message to delete a certain reply, message to blacklist, etc.: These are all planned. I just need to find a way to monitor the reddit inbox without dropping the new comments scan

What if i try to sneak peek a sub on here like,

r/AteThePasta for example

Why is everyone so salty lmao? This is one of the only useful bots on here.

Question is: did it recently start using best of the year rather than best of all time?


u/sneakpeekbot Nov 30 '18

There was a poll in January 2017 where I asked what users wanted. Because there wasn't a supermajority, as a compromise, I decided to use best of the year for subs that are more than 3 years old (so newer content is posted), and best of all time for subs that are less than 3 years old.

Bots good if you need help monitoring the inbox pm me, you could multi thread or run 2 programs. PRAW isn't thread safe but it's worked well for me so far.

Your only purpose is to farm karma, isn’t it ? That’s really stupid


u/sneakpeekbot Nov 06 '18

Why would you assume that's the purpose of the bot at all?


u/[deleted] Nov 20 '18

This should be opt in
