QuoteBot is a chat bot I wrote to solve a simple problem: the chat app I use to talk to my friends, Discord, only allows 50 pinned messages in a channel at a time. My friends and I have chatted with each other in the same channel for 4 years, and were constantly juggling pinned messages. QuoteBot fixes that issue by embedding messages as a message in a separate channel.
A year later and QuoteBot is present in 300 servers, reaches over 50,000 users, and has quoted 10,000 messages. What started out as a hobby project has blossomed into a utility many people use, which I'm very happy about. Unfortunately, since beginning to attend Emerson College, I haven't had the time to work on QuoteBot as much as I'd like. I'm currently in the process of onboarding a new developer to help meet demand I never expected.
