The end of an era for DrAngryBot

From 25 March 2018, DrAngryBot will no longer be available as a public bot.

Midway through 2015 I had a discussion with a friend of mine who was a streamer and we thought that it would be a great idea to create a Twitch bot that could do everything - an all-in-one solution. He was using three different bots to manage his stream. We thought that this would be something great - something that streamers would be willing to pay for.

The landscape has changed and our vision has been realised by several other Twitch bots. Unfortunately, due to this, our dream to work on DrAngryBot full time cannot be fulfilled. Our group of four volunteers spend most of their spare time answering questions and coding new features, all while operating the bot at a financial loss. And it has become clear that few are willing to pay for a Twitch bot, especially when there are plenty of free options available.

So on 25 March 2018, DrAngryBot will become a private bot and will leave all channels except if one of the following applies:

  • You were part of our private beta back in 2015;
  • You are one of our four volunteers, or you were a volunteer in the past;
  • A moderator for trumpi27; or
  • You are a pro user (i.e. a Twitch subscriber to trumpi27)

We will also shut down our Twitter account and restrict our Discord on this date. You will still have access to your data after 25 March 2018 for at least six months to help you transition.
