There seems to be a bit of confusion as to the purpose of these forums. Many people seem to think that these forums exist for me to teach them how to program. Unfortunately, I don't get paid enough here to provide that service. There are countless tutorials and such online to teach you how to program in various languages. Threads which ask for lessons on JavaScript or on programming in general are liable to get ignored. So are threads which demonstrate an exceptional lack of understanding of programming or JavaScript in general.

 

These forums exist to help consumers of my public (freely-available, as in at no cost) libraries and modules with implementation details and confusion. If you've got a bot and you're unsure about how to perform a specific task in it, this is the right place to ask. If you know how to do a specific task but it doesn't appear to be working properly, this is also the right place to ask. If you don't know where to start creating a bot in the first place, you're probably better off at Codecademy, Stack Overflow, or similar other sites.
