    I have two accounts, a mod account and a non mod account which I use to post called mac

    I’ve been posting a ton of content on various communities (and am the most active poster) but this bot is just to help guide people from things like the programming community to the more specific topic communities to help get those active since c/programming tends to have content that would fit in those and its supposed to be a collector community to filter people towards other communities due to lemmy having bad community discovery out of the instance

    I’ll be tweaking the triggers and making it fire less based on what I see happening over time

    • that also didn’t ping me btw, you need to include the @programming.dev at the end

      I have two accounts,

      The last post to [email protected] was 6 days ago.

      During the past week, the community received two posts. Only two.

      In the past two weeks, it received 8 posts.

      Again, if you care about content, all you need to do is post content. Please don’t ruin everyone’s experience by deploying spambots that add no value at all. Be smart about where to invest some effort.

        I really fail to see your problem here. “There is no activity in that community” maybe that is because everyone posts to c/programming instead, causing a negative feedback loop. Crossposting doesn’t cost you any engagement.

        It’s also peak entitlement to berate the guy doing the most amount of work on this instance to keep it active and going for not posting enough content just because you didn’t like what the bot told you. A single bot informing people that there are other, more suitable, communities that would benefit from a crosspost isn’t spam.

        It does add value, I just said what the value is. The bot isn’t just something that points out the opensource community, it’s for all communities and it just noticed here youre posting about open source which you are

        But yeah open-source is one of the communities I’ve posted less to recently cause I tend to not get things I can post to it from what I normally browse but I can add some more activity there. Been mainly focusing on building up the language communities and communities that don’t even get posts in a week normally
