Hello, me being a n00b again. When I use the !shoutout command or my own !so version;
[We have a celebrity in the stream! Check out (touser) and show some love by smashing the follow button at www.twitch.tv/(touser)]
both have the inconvenience that if you @mention the streamer you want to shout out the twitch link won’t work. Is anyone aware of a fix / workaround? Or could this be done in the next version of the bot? Much easier for a mod to @mention someone and have the bot filter out the @ to give the right link.
Notice that I put a ‘@’ before the $1 below – change the language to be whatever you want.
$.lang.register(‘followhandler.shoutout.usage’, ‘Usage: !$1 (streamer)’);
$.lang.register(‘followhandler.shoutout.offline’, ‘Go give @$1 a follow at $2 - they were last seen playing: $3!’);
$.lang.register(‘followhandler.shoutout.online’, ‘Go give @$1 a follow at $2 - they are currently playing: $3!’);
$.lang.register(‘followhandler.shoutout.no.game’, ‘Hey! Go give @$1 a follow at $2!’);
Right, just not sure I understand the logic of the @mention being any different from starting to type the name and then hitting tab. I am not sure what purpose the @mention serves. The documentation indicates ‘streamer’, not ‘@streamer.’
I dunno, I think people expect the @mentions to work because that’s the easiest way to type in a username. I mean imagine if a person had a name like c00lu53rn4m3. It’d be much easier to type !shoutout @c0 then hit enter to complete vs typing the full name, or hit enter then scroll over to the @ and delete it.
