Yes it is the official AMC account. Bots are strictly 100% against the Ask ToS.

We never said that about Ask. Only mainsite. We can discuss intenraly on if they should be allowed (user a user API key (like connect.sid))

Point #5 in the ToS:

You may not automate access to the forum, or monitor the forum, such as with a web crawler, browser plug-in or add-on, or other computer program that is not a web browser. You may crawl the forum to index it for a publicly available search engine, if you run one.

Seems pretty anti-bot to me.

Thats just the default and does not reflect the actual rules that people need to follow…

I will bring this up but this is what people need to follow Replit Ask Community Standards

It’s not a bot though, it was me forgetting to log back into my main which is fine right?

So the Ask ToS are useless?

In my eyes yes it is. Check the topic I made in the TL4 cat

Basically this is just an official replit account for us to use. :slight_smile:

Is my bot against the Terms of Service? I was only scraping Discord webhooks, tokens, etc., and invalidating them. It’s not really a bad thing, but…

ask.replit.com/tos now redirects to the Community guidelines. So as long as your bot doesn’t violate them or the Replit ToS then you’re good.

Yeah, I read that. I couldn’t really find anything that mentions what I’m doing, but it could still be considered API “abuse”, which is against the Terms of Service.

Well I don’t think that that would really be “abuse” so you should be fine :slight_smile:
