also the code has some personal stuff so yeah

@caisright11 Please do not share screenshots of code and errors. Instead, copy and paste it here.

Oh, i’m really sorry

@client.event
async def on_message(message):
if message.author == client.user:
return`

Hmmm, I’m not too sure about this one. Are there any nullified characters before async?
Did you try @client.event() instead of @client.event ?

just tried it. It didn’t work

btw the error is invalid syntax

Do you get an error without the async?

Yes I do get an error when removing the async. Any idea what’s wrong?

Mabey replaces client.user with the id of the bot.

How could i find the id? Is it the token?
